Just Reviewed Martin’s “A Feast for Crows” for SBR

Folks, I thought George R. R. Martin’s A FEAST FOR CROWS wasn’t up to the standard of his other novels in his Song of Ice and Fire series, and said so just now at Shiny Book Review.

Here’s the link:

Tonight’s SBR book review is for Martin’s “A Storm of Swords”

leave a comment »

When reading an epic fantasy series like George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire,” where each book has over 700 pages or more, it gets tough sometimes to know what to say and what not to as a reviewer.  It’s impossible to give a full plot summary, of course; even in 1500 or so words like I used tonight at Shiny Book Review (SBR), it’s flat-out impossible.

But I gave it my best shot; here’s the link to tonight’s review for George R.R. Martin’s A STORM OF SWORDS, the third book in his “Song of Ice and Fire” cycle.  (The fifth book, A DANCE WITH DRAGONS, was released earlier this year and along with the fourth book, A FEAST FOR CROWS, will be reviewed in the next few weeks at SBR.)
