A Storm of Swords Night falls for all of us in the end and too soon for some”Part 1 of A Storm of Swords was less exciting than it's companions I grew tired of most of the character's plot lines and couldn't get enough of others I especially love that we finally get introduced to the Tyrells and the Dornish people They definitely belong to my favourite characters and make all the events in King's Landing even excitingWhile I really like Brienne I don't care much for yet another long journey with unexpected parts annoying turns through Westeros They stumble and get dragged through places and by characters that I do not have any interest in same goes for Arya And I don't like Jaime very much Catelyn's story is pretty much the same every time a lot of mourning and sorrow While I like her and Robb very much it's still unnerving Davos and Stannis would be extremely boring as well if it weren't for the Red LadySo here are the many POVs starting with the chapters I liked the most down to the ones I didn'tDaenerysTyrionSansaJonBranSamwellAryaDavosCatelynJaimeFind of my books on Instagram OKAY SO I'M DONE PART 1 I feel a little intimidated since this is um a 600 page part one Oh gosh What have I done by getting so embroiled in this series? THERE IS NO ESCAPEBut I'm supposed to be reviewing this Right Let's get on with it A Storm of Swords so far has been waaaay better than A Clash of Kings It's faster More action More character development There haven't been many surprising or awful deaths at least of the main characters And some of the barely introduced characters of the last book have been fleshed out now I particularly love Brienne Samwell and Jaime Lannister both got turns at narrating and the characters did instead of just sitting around talking about itI won't talk about ALL the characters just the narrators SO HERE WE GO Jaime We start the book in his POV and omg did I used to hate Jaime? HOW COULD I HATE JAIME? He's absolutely snarky witty and fabulous and I suddenly have a very soft spot for him I um accidentally ship him and Cersei? HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN??? But to be honest Jaime is devoted never cheats and seriously actually truly loves her Unlike 99% of the other dudes in this series But nunnnngh I feel so conflicted about this ship OBVIOUSLY But I absolutely looked forward to Jaime's chapters Plus I loved his interaction and development with Brienne Omg their friendship is preciousum friendship? Hateship? I LOVE IT ANYWAY Brienne is an adorable little darling who in real life I would probably come up to her elbow So there's that Omg and Jaime lost view spoiler HIS HAAAAND I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO DEVASTATED ABOUT SOMETHING Well apart from like all the death But still I wailed I'm glad though that GRRM is developing his characters through injurypain and not just lopping off all their heads hide spoiler Better than the last book not as good as the first Altogether an interesting story but the pace of the series is very slow and if GRRM mentions one bannersigil I'm gonna lose it The world grows a little darker each dayStill plowing my way through A Song of Ice and Fire Book 3 part 1 completed The plots thicken and intermix a rising host of new characters to cause a stir are introduced and the battles between kings rages on Catelyn with Robb the King in the North fighting battle after battle Reeling from the knowledge concerning Winterfell and her two youngest sons she makes a reckless decision that she hopes will protect her two daughters It was different when there was a Stark in Winterfell But the old wolf's dead and young ones gone south to play the game of thrones and all that's left us is the ghostsSansa No longer betrothed to King Joffrey but imprisoned in Kings Landing all the same Another marriage is arranged for her that none are happy about Arya Still on the run with Hot Pie and Gendry they come across a band of outlaws following the Lord of Light who have sworn to return her to Robb Bran Heading North with Meera and Jojen his Warg powers growing ever stronger Jon After his ranging mission gone wrong he hides out with Ygritte planning his next move While the Wildlings plot their attack on the wall The north is hard and cold and has no mercySamwell I was so pleased Sam got a POV in this book I love him He remains with the Nights Watch and the Lord Commander Awaiting any further news concerning the Wildlings while fear of the Others grows and palpable Tyrion Still one of my faves Living in the nest of vipers that is Kings Landing Keeping his secrets and plots Jaime Another one who gets his own POV in this book Thrown together with Brienne of Tarth to cross the country with Kings Landing as the ultimate goal But of course things don't go according to plan Davos My other favourite I love Davos the underdog that he is Still loyal to Stannis Baratheon and recovering from the battle of the black water He helps Stannis plan his next move keeping his hatred of the red priestess Melisandre to himself Daenerys Last but absolutely not least Dany is growing in her power and becoming ueen like every day Her army is growing and she is as ruthless as ever Still absolutely captivated by this world and it's characters Let's keep going Old stories are like old friendsyou have to visit them from time to time The Seven Kingdoms are divided by revolt and blood feud In the northern wastes a horde of hungry savage people steeped in the dark magic of the wilderness is poised to invade the Kingdom of the North where Robb Stark wears his new forged crown And Robb’s defences are ranged against the South the land of the cunning and cruel Lannisters who have his younger sisters in their powerThroughout Westeros the war for the Iron Throne rages fiercely than ever but if the Wall is breached no king will live to claim itAlternate cover for ISBN 9780006479901 There is no way I would ever not love any of A Song of Ice and Fire 's book Once I got obsessed with the first book and love the characters with all my heart it will goes the same for all its successor But I have to admit that Part 1 of A Storm of Swords is a bit of slow paced even for a High Fantasy There are a lot of unnecessary chapters in which the POV dragged in pointless story line and encounter all these bunch of insignificant characters Apart from that this book is fantastic those characters we love are going through great development and growth in their lives and the possibilities of twist and turn of this series drive me crazy I hope the second part will be fast paced and I expect it will be blood curling Dark Wings Dark Words This is probably the most less action book in the series by far But by the end a lot is happening Steel and Snow is the first half of A Storm of Swords the third volume in the series So its end is just the middle of the book I am not going to deny the story line starts out really boring and slow paced but it will pick up its pace soon enough George RR Martin said in a note at the beginning of the book that the opening chapters do not follow the the closing chapters in the second volume as much as they overlap themAs usual there are new perspective chapters to replace those who were gone or dead The first one is Ser Jaime Lannister the Kingslayer The book opens up with Jaime and Brienne while they are on their way to King's Landing in order to exchange him with Sansa Stark It was not good to be in his mind as much as it was interesting and important in a way For the first time one can understand his motives and his seamy behaviors and a little bit of his complex incestuous relation with his sister Cersei The presence with Brienne alongside him all over their journey made her take the role of the reader who knows nothing of him except what he would've heard Despite that she judged him and called him Oathbreaker a dozen of times through their dialogues He was not very polite with her too For he is an arrogant man he mocked her all the time and called her Wench His last chapter in which contains the Bath part is certainly the best This is when Jaime confesses to Brienne about his past and told her why he slew the king he has swore to protect He was good and brave but now he's not Not evil but not good all the sameWhen Robb returned to Riverrun and discovered his mother's so called treason he forgave her and told her that he understands her reason He did not blame her maybe because he is a good son but maybe also not to give her the chance to blame him for what he did I have won every battle yet somehow I'm losing the war And from scourge to torment and torment to scourge Catelyn Stark is still the most strong and miserable mother in the Seven KingdomsAfterwards came my favorite character's chapter Arya Stark's She is still on her way to her parents at Riverrun in company of Gendry and Hot Pie Her story line has a lot of events earlier in comparison to the other characters' She meets Thoros of Myr from the Brotherhood Without Banners who is serving no king but rather aiming to save the world and worshiping the one true God The Lord of Light R'hallor The most thrilling chapter when Lord Beric Dondarrion is introduced and fought He is really one of the most characters I liked and one of of the main reasons I liked this book although he is probably a minor character and didn't appear that muchThis is only the beginning of a dire time for Tyrion After the Battle at Blackwater and Lannister's thunderous victory on Stannis Lord Tywin Lannister returned at King's Landing and took Tyrion's place Tyrion's end at A Clash of Kings was depressing yet fair in my opinion He was very idiot in Book Two spending his whole time with a whore Now that he woke up and returned to his wits with a scar on his face which made him look monstrous than he already was he discovers he is now nothing He sees treason in every one he's known even Bronn Until he met his father this part was truly rough for Tyrion and very cruel from his father We understand how his father mistreats and persecutes him and why and how he feels towards this His tracending rage and the winds of anger were very convincing and credible One of my favorite characters too is Ser Davos The loyal man who was though to be dead at the Battle but he lived When he returned he found out that Stannis is now completely charmed by Melisandre and was thinking that Davos is the reason behind his defeat against the Lannisters for he was the man who convinced him not to take the Red Woman And Davos was convinced that she is the one behind it After a lot of suffering until the last chapter of the book he was finally able to advise his Lord on the next move and thought it would be wiser not to insist on keeping Melisandre away For the night is dark and full of terrorsSansa however is still at King's Landing no longer betrothed to Joffrey After her father's execution and all the stuff that happened she finally realized there is a game to be played Book Two was her best I think she was wise choosing her words carefully and not trusting anybody in this realm of malicious vipers Yet somehow in this book she is back to her stupid Book One character The Tyrells are cunningly approaching her through Margeary Loras and the very funny Lady Olena Sansa still imagines herself being wed to a Prince and have his babiesJon Snow has now one of the best story lines which is definitely better than A Game of Thrones and A Clash of Kings He went with this wildling young beautiful girl Ygritte who is kissed by fire and the other wildlings beyond the Wall He met their king and their people and knew many things about them But to make them certain that he is one of them and no longer a crow of the Night's Watch he must break the oaths he took Will he? We all must admire the writer for turning the most boring story line to be the richier oneI almost hated Daenerys' chapters in the previous volumes she is a very good character and a strong ueen but she hadn't get the chance to actually do something She just gave birth to her Dragons which was great but not enough for two massive books of almost a thousand pages each In this book she travels to Astapor in order to buy an army for her She faces a lot of hardships in her way of course but she did what she aimed for because she is a very strong woman Her Dracarys scene is a mind blowing part in the book and a point where the path of events totally changesBran also didn't do anything but few in this book He is still on his way to Jon at the Wall with Osha and Hodor He has his visions He meets someone alike That's almost everything that's why many get disappointed But I think it was good I started to like Bran a lot Being with him while nothing so important is happening makes the reader know him and predict his deeds in the moments of tensionFinally the second character who gets his own POV chapters is Samwell Tarly Jon Snow's fat friend from the Night's Watch I was not pleased at all by his mere presence in the books He's a good person but I don't really think he's even useful His chapters were so boring to be honestI've missed Theon I hated him but I now realize he was interesting I enjoy this book What an awesome book Alhamdulillah I don't really like the scenes especially sex scenes because I feel there are uite lots of sex scenes in this book I think I might be unexpected to see these scenes are happening in the first part of A Storm of SwordsThis book grabs my attention from the start to the end I am hooked in A Song of Ice and Fire series “Why would the stars want to look down on such as me?” A Storm of Swords is definitely a lot slower than it's predecessors In this book there's a sense everything is just on the verge of falling apart like everyone is moving into position and soon there will be utter chaos So I enjoyed the scheming the political machinations the set ups and the lore that we get throughout this book but I also found parts of it uite slow My favourite part of this book was definitely the backstory and history we get about the characters and the world A lot if about Rhaegar Aerys and Roberts Rebellion I always find worldbuilding and history really interesting and engaging in fantasies so these bits really drew me in While I did know a bit of it from the TV show getting was nice And I really like how much George RR Martin has actually thought out this world and the histories and backstories of the characters He reveals just enough to transform our perceptions of them without defining them like Jaime for example and I think that's fun I also noticed George RR Martins writing a lot in this It was a little poetic than the past two books which I appreciated My least favourite bit is how much TRAVELLING there is Arya and Jaime's chapters are pretty much just them walking around and it was definitely boring I think there was too many POVs in this with not enough for each of them to do because although we hear from each character a few times most of them don't actually have much to do My favourite to least favourite POVs are as followsCatelynDaenerysSansaTyrionBranJonJaime except that ONE BATH CHAPTER WHICH DESERVES EVERYTHINGDavosSamwell “The world grows a little darker every day” Yes unpopular opinion but I love Catelyn's chapters I feel her pain And I think the entire Stark camp is the one that has the most happening Also I know whats about to happen and I want to appreciate them while I can Daenerys is one of my least favourite characters another unpopular opinion but I liked her scenes in this book especially in arth Truly epic and iconic Also I liked the reflection on RhaegarAerys and the Targaryens reign in Westeros Sansa is MY GIRL and I like all the Kings Landing politics Same reason I liked Tyrion's chapters I like Bran I like Jojen and Meera Their travel chapters were just interesting to me than the others and also Bran had Summer with him and I'm just a sucker for those good boy wolves “I'm not a lady Arya wanted to tell her I'm a wolf” Anyway Game of Thrones is like a friendly warm fantasy world to return to Which I know sounds weird since it's brutal but since I know the characters and the world and the majority of the story from the show it's such an easy and fun thing to return to and experience in a new way ANYWAYS I'm not sure when I'll get to A Storm of Swords part II I'll be slowly making my way through this series since I want to catch up and be ready for the new release when it's hopefully actually coming 45 starsOld stories are like old friends she used to say You have to visit them from time to timeA Storm of Swords Steel and Snow A Song of Ice and Fire #3 Part 1 of 2 was a very enjoyable albeit not very eventful book Despite this it was very riveting and set the perfect stage for the events taking place in the next book It's so expertly written that it felt as though I was experiencing everything for the first time even after watching the show I was constantly on edge and cautious through out the whole time reading waiting for the next death or scheme to reveal itselfWhat I admire about Martin's writing skill is his ability to write in several POVs and yet keep the story going without confusing or upsetting the reader's rhythm which makes it a comfortable easy read I never wanted to stop reading I was surprised to find myself liking Sansa and enjoying her chapters as I didn't particularly like her in the show which I also believe is to the credit of George R R Martin's writing abilityAll men must die Jon Snow But first we'll liveWhilst this series is best known for its carnage and violence I felt that this one was surprisingly tame which is what made it feel like it was somewhat lacking were the other books were notThe only other negative I have to say about the book is that the under age wedding and intercourse is uite off putting but is expected as they are present in the other books I understand that this is the norm for the setting of the story and doesn't hinder the reading experience very much That being said if such subjects are sensitive to you I wouldn't recommend this series to you as it is present in many of the booksMy sister has mistaken me for a mushroom She keeps me in the dark and feeds me shitSomething I love very much about these books is that whilst there is a lot of death violence and gore there is also amazing humour Tyrion Lannister's wit is one of the most note worthy things to take away from this series His ability to use sarcasm as a weapon is amazing and inspiring His sass has no boundsSo whilst George R R Martin is busy killing scheming against maiming and planning revenge against our most beloved characters at least we'll have a laugh whilst enduring itSome battles are won with swords and spears others with uills and ravensAll in all this is another brilliant masterpiece beautifully written I cannot wait to continue the series which will no doubt emotionally ruin me but I'll enjoy every second of it This series does contain sensitive subjects of a sexual natureabuse so you may wish not to read it
