Lovereading view...

Cleverly crafted penmanship continues in this epic series of A Song of Ice and Fire. Travel a lesser known and secluded path, into the back woods of scheming and secret passageways of learning. Subterfuge shelters a number of characters as they hide in plain sight, while others take refuge in artifice and deception. Knowledge is the master of all, with ancient wisdom and important lore being sought by those gifted with shrewdness and foresight.

The previous structure of the series alters slightly in a Feast for Crows, which may be a little disconcerting, however the author explains his reasoning at the end of the novel. Absent characters, who you may be well be yearning for, will make a return in A Dance with Dragons.

We are given the chance to witness some smaller, more intimate tales of lesser known characters, who none the less influence the developing record of this land. Martin is expertly and resourcefully laying history at our feet, it really does feel as though he is steering us towards a huge reckoning, so everything, even the smallest detail, should be savoured along the way. ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

A Song of Ice and Fire (4) - A Feast for Crows by George R. R. Martin

HBO's hit series A GAME OF THRONES is based on George R R Martin's internationally bestselling series A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE, the greatest fantasy epic of the modern age. A FEAST FOR CROWS is the fourth volume in the series. The Lannisters are in power on the Iron Throne. The war in the Seven Kingdoms has burned itself out, but in its bitter aftermath new conflicts spark to life. The Martells of Dorne and the Starks of Winterfell seek vengeance for their dead. Euron Crow's Eye, as black a pirate as ever raised a sail, returns from the smoking ruins of Valyria to claim the Iron Isles. From the icy north, where Others threaten the Wall, apprentice Maester Samwell Tarly brings a mysterious babe in arms to the Citadel. As plots, intrigue and battle threaten to engulf Westeros, victory will go to the men and women possessed of the coldest steel and the coldest hearts.
