ticked me off! What the heck was that! Why did he make me wait so darn long for this book! Over 2 years! And that's it? I realise it was a kinda fill in the gaps kinda book, but so many darn pages of filler? Please! I feel like it left me still where I was with the last book. There was no progression. Oh my gosh! And he killed off John Snow! You have to be kidding me. So.. We know the queen regent is disgraced. Briane is still alive, aria is alive and learning assassin skills... But what of Sansa, what of the youngest stark boy? And why hasn't he moved Daneryes back to the 7 kingdoms? I think old George did this book for the money and the hype that came along with the HBO showing of game of thrones... Which was really good. I a people not happy, and if I have to wait another 3 yrs... I am not going to bother with it!
