A Dance with Dragons: A Song of Ice and Fire: Book 5
Couple of nights ago I finished reading "A Dance with Dragons", book 5 of "A Song of Ice and Fire" by George R. R. Martin. Meaning that now I have to wait till next year [supposedly] to get my hands on the next book. Too much of a bloody cliff hanger.... *sigh*
Well, it's been quite a trip. It's an amazing universe GRRM has created, with characters that are believable and understandable, and plots and events that are impossible to predicts. Everything can happen, everyone can die... and apparently everyone does die... =P Heroes make disastrous mistakes and the most brilliant set ups go gloriously wrong, and then the devil saves the day..... And you can't put the bloody book down. =)
Oh, and regarding the TV series... as great as the series are, they're not nearly as good as the books, so if you're a fan of the TV series just go and read the books... Especially in the more recent episodes the TV series has been deviating more and more from the books, somehow annihilating some interesting aspects of the story line.
So, now I'm going to go about finally finishing Codex Alera [which I've been stretching as much as I could! =P]. And after that... we'll see.
