really liked it
bookshelves: adventure, fantasy

It's been six years since I read books 1 through 4 of this series and a couple years ago HBO began what has turned out to be a popular show based on them (called Game of Thrones). I saw season one of the show (on Swedish TV) and that just fanned the flames for me to get back into this series. I put aside another book I was in the midst of to get into this one. Martin is a fine writer and his story draws you in completely. I was happy to see some favorite characters show up again. Not much in the way of plot resolution in this book -- two more are due to finish it off. But I was fascinated by where things were going. Winter has finally come. Jon is very busy juggling issues at the Wall. Tyrion's abroad getting into more trouble. Dany's dragons are growing large and very dangerous. This series is just so much fun. Hopefully it won't be a six-year wait until book six: The Winds of Winter.
