[Re-Read] A Clash of Kings – Daenerys V

Most of A Clash of King’s excitement is past is and the next set of chapters will deal largely with the fallout of what we’ve seen over the course of the last book (and last year)(sorry). Dany’s final chapter in the book doesn’t really do much beyond set up her departure from Qarth and introduce … Continue reading [Re-Read] A Clash of Kings – Daenerys V

[Re-Read] A Clash of Kings – Sansa VII

The Battle of Blackwater Bay has ended, though Cersei, drunk as she is, has no idea. It seems that Cersei has gone past the giddy-drunk phase and has entered the more nihilistic drunk phase. Thankfully, for Sansa’s sake, Cersei wasn’t deep enough in her despair to summon Payne and conclude the whole affair right there … Continue reading [Re-Read] A Clash of Kings – Sansa VII

[Re-Read] A Clash of Kings – Tyrion XIV

In this chapter, the Battle of Blackwater Bay finally ends as Tyrion leads his tiny sortie out into the messy chaos that is the battlefield. I made the mistake of no recognizing that there were several other sorties being led by other commanders at the various other gates – so Tyrion’s miniscule force of fifty … Continue reading [Re-Read] A Clash of Kings – Tyrion XIV

[Re-Read] A Clash of Kings – Sansa VI

As the battle outside heads towards bloody climax, Sansa has some rather useful truth bombs dropped on her by Cersei, who has to be one of the series' absolute worst people to grab a drink with, right next to Vargo Hoat and Ramsay Bolton. In many ways, this chapter is less about the war and … Continue reading [Re-Read] A Clash of Kings – Sansa VI

[Re-Read] A Clash of Kings – Tyrion XIII

The first of Tyrion’s battle chapters opens with Stannis’ fleet having just caught fire. Tyrion knows it’s on now – the die have been cast and there’s only one direction to go now. This chapter, and the next few, are fairly short, as though Martin wanted to create this television-like experience where we follow one … Continue reading [Re-Read] A Clash of Kings – Tyrion XIII

[Re-Read] A Clash of Kings – Davos III

  The Battle of Blackwater Bay has begun and this chapter tells the tale of the naval component of it. There is considerable overlap between the various characters’ chapters – Sansa, in the last chapter, heard the battle beginning, which technically means that her chapter ended after the events at this chapter’s end, while the … Continue reading [Re-Read] A Clash of Kings – Davos III

[Re-Read] A Clash of Kings – Sansa V

Summary: Source After what feels like an incredibly long time, the battle for King’s Landing finally begins in earnest. We will need to wait for the next few chapters to really see what it is like out on the front lines but for all intents and purposes, the battle has now truly begun and I think … Continue reading [Re-Read] A Clash of Kings – Sansa V
