My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Once again, I am simply blown away by George R. R. Martin. He takes pure chaos, puts it in print, and makes a gripping world where literally anything can happen. Just when you think you know where the book is going, it makes a complete 180 degree turn. If you have not read George R. R. Martins Song of Ice and Fire books, you are truly missing out. A combination of dragons, knights, magic, political intrigue, and pure chaos make this a book that can not be missed. My only real complaint is that I cannot continue in this world, as George R.R. Martin has not released the last book, A Dance with Dragons. It is still being written, and was supposed to have been finished 3+ years ago with no end in sight. Honestly, I think he has woven so much chaos into his last book, that there is no end in sight, and he has no idea what he will do to finish it. Until he figures it out, I will remain optimistic that it will be published soon. Till then, I will need to start reading his other works.
