This review is from: A Feast for Crows (Reissue) (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 4) (Paperback)
A Feast for Crows is the fourth book in The Song of Ice and Fire series (after A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings and A Storm of Crows and before A Dance with Dragons, The Winds of Winter (forthcoming) and A Dream of Spring (forthcoming)).
This volume is chronologically parallel to A Dance with Dragons and focuses on events in the West and South of Westeros.
Both Sansa and Tyrion have escaped King's Landing. Brienne of Tarth is looking for the former, whereas Cersei takes advantage of the disappearance of her brother to seize power for herself. She sends Jaime to reconquer Harrenhal, The Twins and Riverrun.
In the Iron Isles, Asha Greyjoy and her uncles fight for the throne. Euron sends Victorion to conquer Dænerys's heart.
After the Red Viper's death, Dorne is torn between revenge and their allegiance to Tywin Lannister.
Samwell Tarly, accompanied with Gilly and her baby, is sent to Old Town to become a mæster, while Arya becomes a novice at the House of Black and White in Braavos.
Like with the previous volumes, I found that even though the story in itself could be absorbing, George RR Martin's description of every tiny detail makes reading tiresome. So when I put down his books, I have a mixed feeling of both relief and desire to know what happens next. Especially now, I want to know what the other half of characters were up to during that time.
