A Feast For Crows

by Martin, George R. R.
For the night is dark and full of terrors...

Fans of the Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin unanimously agree that A Storm of Swords, the third volume, is the strongest book in the series. Conversely, A Feast for Crows, which follows ASoS, is regarded as the weakest of the series. ASoS is undoubtedly the most eventful, with the infamous Red Wedding. It's tough to follow such an act, especially when fans had to wait years for the next installment, and so A Feast For Crows is often given a "meh" from fans due to the lack of action, absence of favorite characters, and focus on the less desirable ones. I actually found this to be a refreshing look at the many stories that take place in this world. After all of the grisly events of the previous three books, it was nice to take a breather from the action and to get a chance to see inside the characters' heads and explore the aftermath. Here we see what all the carnage means. We see Jaime, the conscienceless anti-hero, go from deplorable to sympathetic, slump-shouldered Samwell Tarly grow from reluctant to brave, and of course Cersei, who changes not at all from her despicable manipulative behavior and ultimately faces the consequences. It's not at all an action packed book, but there is an intimacy with the characters that I didn't pick up on in the previous volumes. It comes from gaining an understanding and even a liking of previously one dimensional villains and weaklings. If you are making your way through the series, stick with it. There is more here than your standard good vs. evil.

In the fourth novel in the epic fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire, the kingdom exists in a state of perilous equilibrium following the death of a monstrous king, a regent ruling in King's Landing, and few claimants to the Iron Throne, until new conspiracies and alliances begin to erupt in the Seven Kingdoms. Reprint.
