George R. R. Martin’s A Dance With Dragons is book five of the Song of Ice and Fire series and continues the tales of war and adventure. In this story Daenerys Targaryen and her dragons set out for more than just a normal rule. There are enemies in her kingdom and outside of it as well. She is not the only character making a difference in Westeros or throughout her world. In fact, there are many characters throughout this story who have more than their fair share of problems and obstacles.


A Dance

Tyrion and Jon are both facing problems throughout their lives as they attempt to make their way through it. There are many things that must be overcome in order to progress through the world of Ice and Fire and even more must be overcome in A Dance with Dragons. That’s because this world is not one that will allow everyone to make their way through without problems and without trouble. Battles are being fought, wars are being won and even more, people of all different walks of life are beginning to come out of nowhere and everyone must be willing to fight for what they want.


There are more problems occurring for everyone in this world. Politics are rising and so are the changes and thoughts of outlaws, slaves, soldiers and everyone else. It doesn’t matter what walk of life those people are in or who they must fight in order to get the things that they need. There is snow and there are allies for each person to fight their way into their own tasks. Lannister makes his way east, Tyrion makes his way from the west and yet everyone is working their way to their destiny.


The Queen must make sure that she protects her own people and that she also protects herself. She must work against the thousands of enemies that continue to oppress her and continue to try and end her rule. There is more than enough war occurring throughout the world and though the battles of each person will continue forever there are also ways to protect them as well. Destiny is more than what anyone would think and it will continue no matter what anyone does and no matter what they attempt to change. Martin’s novels are set in a world that is fantastical and yet more than a little astounding as well.

    Daenerys Targaryen really captured my attention. She was definitely the type of queen that I was so intrigued with. I love romance and love stories but I also absolutely love adventure and battles. I cannot imagine living in this world but I definitely wish that I could. The battles are in such detail and they are so full of amazing characters that I could not pull myself away. I was completely absorbed by what happened in the books before A Dance of Dragons and the ones before it were all amazing to me and I can’t wait to read the next book.

    I’ve read all of the books in the Song of Ice and Fire series. So A Dance with Dragons by George R. R. Martin was definitely something I wanted to check out. This book was great and I absolutely love the dragons and Daenerys also. It was amazing how they manage to overcome so much and manage to make their way from Westeros. Big battles and amazing destinies are filling this amazing story. I was definitely happy with the way everything continued to progress and the way that it came together in the end. I love the entire series and it’s definitely something I recommend.
