DescriptionThe long-awaited fifth volume in the hugely popular and highly acclaimed epic fantasy A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE The last of the Targaryons, Daenerys Stormborn, the Unburnt, has brought the young dragons in her care to their terrifying maturity. Now the war-torn landscape of the Seven Kingdoms is threatened by destruction as vast as in the violent past. Tyrion Lannister, a dwarf with half a nose and a scar from eye to chin, has slain his father and escaped the Red Keep in King's Landing to wage war from the Free Cities beyond the narrow sea. The last war fought with dragons was a cataclysm powerful enough to shatter the Valyrian peninsula into a smoking, demon-haunted ruin half drowned by the sea. A DANCE WITH DRAGONS brings to life dark magic, complex political intrigue and horrific bloodshed as events at the Wall and beyond the sea threaten the ancient land of Westeros.

Reviews for A Dance with Dragons
While it is still a good book, it's definitely the worst until now.
Long, a little boring and with a lack of grip with powerful characters. Half the book is spent travelling around. If this was the first of the saga, it wouldn't be the success it is today. I'm almost sorry to say this, because I find the saga simply amazing, but I think George is losing it. I fear for the next book.
As you know, it as succumbed to the schedule of the TV series. How passionate it could be if you start to fit your book to other interests besides pure writing? And if you lose passion you lose it all.
PS: And... gee... George, please stop killing the characters! by PEDRO
