A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE: BOOK FIVE
 
In the aftermath of a colossal battle, Daenerys Targaryen rules with her three dragons as queen of a city built on dust and death. But Daenerys has thousands of enemies, and many have set out to find her. Fleeing from Westeros with a price on his head, Tyrion Lannister, too, is making his way east—with new allies who may not be the ragtag band they seem. And in the frozen north, Jon Snow confronts creatures from beyond the Wall of ice and stone, and powerful foes from within the Night’s Watch. In a time of rising restlessness, the tides of destiny and politics lead a grand cast of outlaws and priests, soldiers and skinchangers, nobles and slaves, to the greatest dance of all.

Don’t miss the thrilling sneak peek of George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire: Book Six, The Winds of Winter

    While a much more fulfilling read than Feast, the story does not push the plot much further and leaves many character arcs in the lurch. Martin says he wanted to finish it properly but didn't, and the novel suffers as a result. I wonder why the editor or published decided the novel was ready for release. I truly think Feast and Dance could have been condensed and concluded into a single novel. Good story but not quite complete.

  • Disappointing. Don't read this novel if you value your time.

    From ArcticBanana
    3/4 of the book is about who's wearing what even though everyone's pretty much wearing the same thing with just different colours. Quality of the story is getting worse and worse with every book. All and all nothing happened after 1000 pages of words except one or two plots. Martin turned a good story into money milking piece of crap. Lord of the rings started and finished in 1500 pages but this series is almost nowhere after 5000. I never thought I'd regret reading this series until the this book.

    From Owl 42
    This book was a disappointment. It is too long by about 30%, tells the same tale of violence repeatedly, and fails in character development and resolution. I am sorry I spent money on it.
  • EPIC…. epic waste of time. Stay away.

    The "Game of Thrones" series of books is absolutely terrible and frustrating. I just finished book 5 and am angry that I kept reading. Admittedly Martin has created an fascinating world and many great characters. I was hooked from the start and expected to finish the series loving the books. Instead I finished book 5 angry with myself for wasting all that time and with even more angry with the manipulative author. The main problem is that Martin ignores one of the basics of the story-telling arc. The Climax. Often referred to as "The End." If a story is to big to be told in a single novel, we have the tradition of the trilogy. In a series or a trilogy each book still wraps up most story lines with a hint of further challenges ahead. These books end with major characters and plot lines dropped for hundreds or even thousands of pages. After 5 books and several thousand pages, the fundamental story in still far from resolution. I feel manipulated. Martin has clearly concluded that he can milk us for the maximum amount of revenue without bothering to conclude this story. I read a lot and don't often write reviews. This series is a waste of time. Read "Dune", read Asimov's "Foundation Trilogy" read "Three Day Road", read anything. But for the love of all that is good about books, stay AWAY from this series. If I save even one reader with this warning it will all have been worthwhile.

    Ibooks wont let me read the book, it's continuously paused and even when i delete the account and re-install, it's screwed up. This is the first time i've purchased a book from ibooks and will probably be the last. I'll stick to buying books in a book store, this is ridiculous..
  • Hated the book

    From Judith Holmes
    I plowed thru all the minutia to the few nuggets of plot only to be left with no resolution to the story other than people were murdered (or did some survive?). I enjoyed the first 4 books but this was a chore to read with no evident ending.
