Holy amazeballs! This is easily my favorite so far. This one takes off running and never slows down. It was very hard at times to pace myself and not just tear through it because I wanted - needed - to know what was going to happen next. Martin is a master storyteller and the various narratives he's crafted in the first two books continues to build here until it reaches max capacity - and then just keeps going. And that ending(show spoiler)
- wow. I couldn't believe it when I heard that was left out of the show, because I can't wait to see what Martin's going to do with that.
And how about that kill count, eh?
