And there's one more: Oh, Dany, Dany, Dany. I could write a dissertation on Dany and everything that went wrong with her story - but I don't have that kind of time.


For those of you not familiar with this most epic of George R. Martin's characterization and plot failures, here is a summary: When we first meet her, Dany is thirteen years ond a games of thrones about to be sold effectively into marriage with Khal Drogo, a warlord of the Dothraki people, by her abusive and not-a-little-bit-crazy brother, Viserys.


Viserys has convinced himself that Drogo will help him take back 'his' kingdom - this being the Seven Kingdoms where the rest of the book takes place a games of thrones hence the whole 'selling his sister a games of thrones be raped by married to someone he obviously sees as a barbarian' thing.

The marriage occurs, and then the wedding night in truly squicky half-detail. There then follows a long journey across the plains to a Dothraki city, during which Dany is raped and no, I will not call it anything else by Drogo. By her fourteenth birthday she is pregnant.

When they arrive in the Dothraki city, Viserys makes such an ass of himself that Drogo kills him by pouring molten gold over his head in the middle of a feasting hall. Robert, the current king of the Seven Kingdoms who the Targaryens see as a usurper, sends assassins to kill Dany - naturally, they fail - and Drogo a games of thrones so angry at this that he decides to commit all his people to attacking the Seven Kingdoms in retribution.

A Game of Thrones

They leave the Dothraki city a games of thrones this point Dany is heavily pregnant and go out to wreak havoc across the countryside on their way to conquest. In one such battle Drogo is wounded; because he refuses to care for the wound properly, it gets infected.

When it is clear that he is going to die, Dany appeals to an old woman to perform forbidden magic to save him; the rest of Drogo's people do not approve and try to cast Dany out.

Dany loses her a games of thrones to create a Drogo-zombie, which she then smothers.

When his body is placed on the traditional pyre, she adds in three supposedly dead dragon eggs given to her as wedding gifts and which any fool a games of thrones see hundreds of pages off were bound a games of thrones hatch and, surprise surprise, they hatch.

To which my primary objections are: The blinding obviousness of the ending 2. Martin in [30] InMartin gave his agent, Kirby McCauleythe first pages and a two-page story projection as part of a planned trilogy with the novels A Dance with Dragons and The Winds of Winter intended to follow.

When Martin had still not reached the novel's end at manuscript pages, he felt that the series needed to be four and eventually six books long, [26] [31] which he imagined as two linked trilogies of one long story.

A games of thrones saw the struggle of the cold Others and the fiery dragons as one possible meaning for "Ice and Fire", whereas the word "song" had previously appeared in Martin's book titles A Song for Lya and Songs the Dead Men Sing, stemming from his obsessions with songs.

Bantam Books published A Storm of Swords in a single volume in the United States in November[15] whereas some other-language editions were divided into two, three, or even four volumes. Since the events on the Iron Islands were to have an impact in the book and could a games of thrones be told with existing POV characters, Martin eventually introduced three new viewpoints.

On one hand, Martin was unsatisfied with covering the events during the gap solely through flashbacks and internal retrospection.
