Crows will fight over a dead man's flesh, and kill each other for his eyes.

Bloodthirsty, treacherous and cunning, the Lannisters are in power on the Iron Throne in the name of the boy-king Tommen. The war in the Seven Kingdoms has burned itself out, but in its bitter aftermath new conflicts spark to life.

The Martells of Dorne and the Starks of Winterfell seek vengeance for their dead. Euron Crow's Eye, as black a pirate as ever raised a sail, returns from the smoking ruins of Valyria to claim the Iron Isles. From the icy north, where Others threaten the Wall, apprentice Maester Samwell Tarly brings a mysterious babe in arms to the Citadel.

Against a backdrop of incest and fratricide, alchemy and murder, victory will go to the men and women possessed of the coldest steel and the coldest hearts.

I liked reading this. I liked seeing more of Cersei, Jaime, and Sam's points of view. I liked seeing the growth of Arya and Sansa, but I can see why most plot synopses for the series skip over this book. On the whole, nothing really happened. King's Landing and Dorne and Littlefinger did their plotting, like they do, but nothing big really came to fruition. I kind of wish that Martin had done half the story of both sides to just tell more of what was going on rather than split this into two books by points of view the way he did.

I read early that this was the full story for half the characters rather than half the story for all the characters due to the length (and probably his publisher pushing him to get something out). I think I would have rather had half the story for all the characters because I am left wondering if the other book will delve backwards quite a ways into this one. Also, because of the nature of this series, even at the "end" you still wonder what is going to happen to the characters (except those that truly meet their end -- I guess Martin and Carey have something in common with killing off characters.)

I will admit to reading Arya's chapters all in a row, skipping everything in the middle, which is probably not the best way, but as she is my favorite character, it is hard not to do that. As …

Le quatrième tome de la saga A Song of Ice and Fire n'est pas mon préféré, sans doute parce qu'il ne suit que la moitié des personnages, et que ce ne sont pas forcément mes préférés. On note également un dispersement des intrigues et un ralentissement du rythme. Cela reste tout de même de l'excellente fantasy, bien au-dessus de la moyenne.
