HBO's hit series A GAME OF THRONES is based on George R R Martin's internationally bestselling series A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE, the greatest fantasy epic of the modern age. A FEAST FOR CROWS is the fourth volume in the series. 'When the writing is this good, it's worth the wait' Entertainment Weekly The Lannisters are in power on the Iron Throne. 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.

As plots, intrigue and battle threaten to engulf Westeros, victory will go to the men and women possessed of the coldest steel and the coldest hearts.

Needs a serious editor
After I read the first volume, I decided to buy the rest of the series. How I whish I hadn't. The second volume is tiresome to read, a lot of references to the first volume (is that a new way to produce thick volumes!?).
The third volume I liked even less. As in the second, to my experience the balance between anoying characters and not so is lost. Which, in turn, made it hard to read. I skipped quite a lot of pages while reading. Unfortunately I bought the book and found I had - at least - try to read it..

As we find out at the very end of the novel, this is part one of two, really only part 4.1, The followup Dancing with Dragons is the 2nd group of the characters' story for this same time period.
Most of my favored characters not included.
...Note that this story, at his rate of telling, could take another 50 years with 1 book every 5 years...

A Feast for Crows is a subtler book than its predecessor, in that there are fewer scenes of shocking violence, war, or treachery (well, there's always treachery in Westeros, but you get the idea). Many of the characters are picking up the pieces of their tattered lives and figuring out how to proceed, showing us the human side of war once again. I also want to forewarn newcomers to this book; Martin chose to tell the stories of half of the characters rather than leave some stories unfinished. There are also several new characters introduced; as a result, we see no Dany, Jon, or Tyrion, but get a LOT of Cersei, Jaime, Brienne, and Arya. This did not bother me so much in the reading, because I started the book after the fifth book had already dropped, but if I had not had some warning to not expect some of my favorite characters, I would have felt much more disappointed while reading. As it is, the book does a marvelous job of gathering together story lines and painting a realistic picture of humanity and politics in the aftermath of violence.

A Feast for Crows
This series is excellent. It is very well written and does not evoke boredom nor the tease to scan or skip ahead. Conveniently, an index of the characters is included in each book. Highly recommended by both my husband and myself.
