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.
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.
