BLURB
In the aftermath of a colossal battle, new threats are emerging from every direction.
Tyrion Lannister, having killed his father, and wrongfully accused of killing his nephew, King Joffrey, has escaped from King’s Landing with a price on his head.

To the north lies the great Wall of ice and stone – a structure only as strong as those guarding it. Eddard Stark’s bastard son Jon Snow has been elected 998th Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch. But Jon has enemies both inside and beyond the Wall.

And in the east Daenerys Targaryen struggles to hold a city built on dreams and dust.

OPENING SENTENCE
The night was rank with the smell of man.

REVIEW
A Dance with Dragons 1: Dreams and Dust takes place before and during the events of the last book, A Feast for Crows. I continue to love A Song of Ice and Fire. I will be buying the DVD’s for the TV series this month and can’t wait to see these books on screen. This is the first part of the fifth volume in the series. Martin catches up with all the characters missed out of A Feast for Crows. Thankfully, my favourite character, Dany makes many appears in this book. She was sadly missed in A Feast for Crows. I liked catching up with Jon Snow and Bran. Tyrion continues to be a character I’ve warmed to. Jon Snow is much changed from the boy he was in the first volume, A Game of Thrones. He’s all grown up and kind of intense and a bit scary. I’m looking forward to see where he develops next. My heart goes out to Arya. I’m looking forward to catching up with the rest of the characters in the next volume. I hope someone makes Cersei weep and bleed like a stuck pig.
