A Feast for Crows by George R. R. Martin

Published: October 30th 2007 by Bantam (first published October 17th 2005)
Genre: Fantasy | Epic Fantasy | High Fantasy
My Rating: 4 of 5 Stars

Playing catch-up with a series has its perks. For instance, the hullabaloo that followed the release of A Feast for Crows prepared me for a book without a few of my favorite characters. Knowing that this book tells all the story for half the characters and the next book, A Dance with Dragons, will tell all the story for the other half didn’t prepare me for how much remains unresolved and how profoundly the characters’ plights would affect me

What can I say about A Feast for Crows that hasn’t already been said? Martin continues where he left off, skillfully manipulating setting, characters, story and plot. All the names that had paraded across the pages of prior books finally find their places in the vast puzzle. New faces join the fray and ramp up the intrigue.

There were a few places where things got a little bogged down, but they didn’t last long. That’s the only reason I didn’t give this one five stars. It might have been less noticeable if more of my favorite characters had been included. The balance was a little off.

    2015 if you’re lucky! I haven’t much patience for stories to get where they’re going, I prefer to control when and where I stop, so I haven’t read any of these. But good luck to you and let’s hope the old codger doesn’t die before he gets to the end.

    • Ouch! I hadn’t even thought about him dying before he completes the series. (Note to self: Add George R.R. Martin to prayers) I’ve been holding off reading A Dance With Dragons because I know it will be a long while before the next book is released. I’m starting to have trouble bypassing it – so I’m sure I’ll give in and start reading soon. *sigh*
