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"

Review by Library Journal (2011-07-15)

The war of the kings has left Westeros battered, bloody, and without leadership. Self-proclaimed King Stannis still seeks the Iron Throne but must gather new supporters in his efforts to win back his brother's kingdom. Jon Snow, newly chosen Lord Commander of the Wall, battles the undead, diminishing stores, and his own personal loyalties. The remaining Stark children are scattered to the winds, each believing the others dead or lost forever.

Across the sea, Queen Daenerys Targaryen maintains a tenuous hold on her conquered lands. In Martin's long-awaited fifth title in his projected seven-book series, fans will be relieved to pick up the action with favorite characters missing from the previous book (A Feast for Crows), including Snow, Tyrion Lannister, The on Greyjoy, and Bran Stark. As the action moves forward and the time lines between the two books begin to meld, it becomes clear that if battle and blood cannot win the throne and unite the realm, perhaps the war will be won through marriage, magic, and faith.

Readers must remember, though, no character is safe, no outcome is assured, and Winter is coming! Verdict Nearly six years after A Feast for Crows was released, this new volume has a huge and hungry audience. With the added interest sparked by the HBO series Game of Thrones and the breadth of the material, expect high demand for the entire series as new readers start from the beginning and longstanding fans refresh their memories.
