George Martin heeft afgelopen weekend alweer e.e.a. verklapt over Winds of Winter:
I think we're gonna start out with a big smash with the two enormous battles [at the Wall and in Meereen]... We have more deaths, and we have more betrayals. We have more marriages.
He also re-confirms that the Dothraki are coming back "in a big way" and he says "a lot of stuff is happening at The Wall."
Die laatste zin is wat mij betreft nog wel het interessantst Daenerys die wellicht terugkeert met een leger om deel te nemen aan de strijd om de troon?Well, Tyrion and Dany will intersect, in a way, but for much of the book they're still apart. They both have quite large roles to play here. Tyrion has decided that he actually would like to live, for one thing, which he wasn't entirely sure of during the last book, and he's now working toward that end — if he can survive the battle that's breaking out all around him. And Dany has embraced her heritage as a Targaryen and embraced the Targaryen words. So they're both coming home.
