This was an utterly horrifying but addictive book, and probably the worst choice for Summer beach reading.

Had just about the right mix of old characters, new characters, plot development and general wonder and fantasy (arguably one of Martin's greatest strengths) to suit my tastes (arguably a little too much repeated brooding from some, though perhaps th...more

Read this to fill the lack in library stock of a Dance with Dragons and was not disappointed. Proves without a doubt Martin's handle on genre and tone; horror, fantasy and science fiction all represented separately and even in hybrid to their full ef...more
