The first two seasons of Game of Thrones were pretty straightforward: one season, one book. But season three covered a big chunk of George R.R. Martin's third book, leaving some for season four. What's left of A Storm of Swords for the show to cover? And how much of books four and five could we see next year?
To find out, we spent some time revisiting our copies of A Storm of Swords, plus the next two books, A Feast For Crows and A Dance With Dragons. We also consulted two great experts on the A Song of Ice and Fire series: Elio Garcia, webmaster of Westeros.org, and Adam Whitehead with The Wertzone. As you probably know, A Feast for Crows and A Dance With Dragons take place simultaneously for the most part, and they also ramp up the complexity of Martin's saga with tons of new characters. So adapting them is going to be a fascinating process to watch.
