This was a pretty great book. I wouldn't recommend it to young people though, or at least know a couple things about sex first or you won't understand haha. ANYWAY... It's was really unexpected. Intriguing twists and turns throughout. I was kinda suspecting that about Danerys' stones before that happened at the end though. I honestly wasn't expecting Stark to die but it makes sense, leadership is all on the next generation now. I absolutely hated Sansa throughout the entire book. If she had just stood up for Arya, instead of blaming her, the whole book would've turned out differently! That unappreciative whiny brat. I'm happy Lady was killed. Sansa deserved it. And Poor little Bran, getting shoved out a window ;( could've broken my heart! The characters where well described. I felt emotions for the situations the were placed in. Obviously not all of the emotions were good *cough cough* SANSA *cough* but it's better than feeling nothing, right? I absolutely can't wait to get my hands on the next book! All Hail the King of the North!!
