So after about eight months of reading, I've finally finished the fourth and fifth books of George R.R. Martin's sprawling fantasy saga, A Song of Ice & Fire. And boy, did a lot of stuff happen there. Spoilers beware.
This Tuesday, the years of anticipation will be over, and the fifth book in George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series will finally be here. So does A Dance with Dragons live up to the near-insurmountable hype?
