Review A magnificent place, a Starkisean place. There's young Bran, and that's his direwolf. Bran overhead a secret - so thanks to an assaliant, he's now on the verge of dying. His mother Catelyn is by his side, pondering whether he'd live or not; she realizes her responsibility, though, for now Brian's father is gone with the king, it's up to her and her eldest son to protect Winterfell for unexpected dangers lurking ahead. And look! Crows are circling the place. From the scene Jon, Brian's bastard brother, is omitted; he's taken an oath to become a Black Brother. Excellent at fighting, Jon knows the Others are back. The Dead are back. And so the Night's Watch is in hazard too. Hazard from silent, frosty Dead Ones. Arya's stiches are crooked again. She came with the king Robert and her father here, to the tremendous castle of heat where the king resides. Her direwolf is with her. Her sister behaves girlishly; Arya despises her henceforth, as she herself is a manly girl, having the want to do something for the world. And there are things to be done. Wars to be fought. Everyone will take part. For this is the Game of Thrones. --By Amazon Customer on 19 May 2017 This book is really interesting, I can't take my eyes off it.It is written in simple language and the plot is easy to understand.I like the fact that all the important characters, their information has been clearly cited at the end of the book, in the appendix.I hope to read the next book of this series soon. --By Amazon Customer on 16 May 2017 About the Author George R.R.
