Review by devenish
Not one of the better books in this (usually) excellent series. The ploy of using only half of his main characters misfires badly I feel,while at the same time he introduces several previously unknowns. Thus we have to wait until the next two books to catch up with those characters whom we like (or dislike) more. The trouble with all this is that over such a vast number of pages,the reader loses the plot in more ways than one.On the other hand (and we must be fair folks) there are certainly some fantastic events happening along the way. Martin is not averse to killing and maiming many of his cast,including several very important ones.So,this is well worth the time spent reading it,even though,for me at least it is far from the best.

Keeping up with the Joneses. And the plot. This is good. It was odd, the way he split the story lines up, but potentially essential to the plot development, as with so many threads, it became troublesome keeping up.There are some oddments that only read as odd, not particularly surprising, when you see the other side of the story (in the next book).I'm sticking in for at least the next 2...

After reading some other reviews I have to agree that this book has been my least favourite of the series, the reason being I want to read about all the characters that I know about but the beginning of this book introduces more characters which I understand moves the story along but I want to know what is happening to the others. The only other thing that I disliked is the ever expanding list of minor characters, half the time I can't remember who most of the knights being mentioned are.Overall though it is still a good book, which is well written and still thoroughly enjoyable.
