The smuggler-turned-knight Davos Seaworth attempts to assassinate Stannis's advisor Melisandre , a sorceress and priestess of R'hllor, blaming her for Stannis's defeat in his prior assault on King's Landing.

Davos is imprisoned for treason, but at Melisandre's behest, Stannis releases Davos and appoints him Hand of the King. Melisandre uses the blood of Edric Storm , a bastard son of Stannis's late brother King Robert to curse the three rival Kings.

Balon Greyjoy's death is reported shortly thereafter. Joffrey's grandfather Tywin Lannister , the Hand of the King, compels Sansa to marry his dwarf son Tyrion Lannister , to enable Lannister control of the North; but Tyrion refuses to consummate the marriage against her will.

Margaery and Joffrey's wedding is held as planned, but during the wedding feast, King Joffrey is poisoned and dies. Tyrion is accused of the murder by his sister Cersei Lannister , Joffrey's mother, and arrested.

Sansa escapes the castle with the help of Lord Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish , who admits to her his culpability in Joffrey's death, incriminating Margaery's grandmother Olenna Tyrell as well.

After Balon, Robb and Joffrey die, as Melisandre predicted, Davos has Edric smuggled to safety to prevent Melisandre and Stannis sacrificing him for the power in his blood.

Davos discovers a request by the Night's Watch for aid against Mance Rayder; Stannis prepares to execute Davos for treason but changes his mind after Davos shows Stannis the Night's Watch's plea.

The spymaster Varys and Tyrion's lover Shae testify falsely against Tyrion at his trial. Prince Oberyn Martell of the southern region of Dorne offers to represent Tyrion in a trial by combat against Cersei's champion, Gregor Clegane , who was responsible for the death of Oberyn's sister Elia.

Oberyn nearly wins, but is ultimately killed by Gregor, although the poison on Oberyn's spear leaves Gregor dying in agony. Tyrion is sentenced to death.

Upon returning to King's Landing, Jaime gives Brienne a sword reforged from the hereditary sword of the Stark family, and sends her to find Arya and Sansa and return them home.

Jaime refuses to believe that Tyrion killed Joffrey, and helps Varys free Tyrion from prison. Jaime reveals that Tyrion's first wife Tysha, whom Tywin had gang-raped by his garrison, was not a prostitute as Tywin told him, and genuinely loved Tyrion.

Outraged, Tyrion swears revenge on Jaime, Cersei, and Tywin; during his escape, he murders both Shae and Tywin before fleeing Westeros.

At the Eyrie, Sansa is disguised as an illegitimate daughter of Littlefinger, and Littlefinger and Lysa are married.

Lysa reveals that Littlefinger had convinced her to poison Jon Arryn , her late husband, and to pin the blame on the Lannisters, which was the catalyst for the events of A Game of Thrones.

Lysa threatens to kill Sansa, thinking she is trying to seduce Littlefinger, but Littlefinger intervenes and, after revealing that he had only ever loved Catelyn, pushes Lysa to her death.

The detachment of the Night's Watch under Lord Commander Jeor Mormont are attacked by undead wights and the Others , hostile inhuman creatures from the far north. The Watch suffer heavy casualties, although the steward Samwell Tarly kills one of the Others with a blade of obsidian.

Soon some of the Watch mutiny and kill Mormont, but Sam escapes with the help of a wildling girl, Gilly. Sam, Gilly, and Gilly's newborn child approach the Wall, assisted by a strange figure riding an elk , whom Sam calls Coldhands.

Among the dead are most of the Watch's senior leadership. Robb's brother Bran Stark and his friends, having escaped the Boltons' attack on the Stark castle Winterfell, are guided north by Bran's dreams of a three-eyed crow.

Jon, on a mission to infiltrate the wildlings, convinces Mance that he is a deserter from the Night's Watch, and learns that the Others are driving the wildlings south towards the Wall.

Jon and his captor Ygritte also begin a sexual relationship. After crossing the Wall, Jon escapes the wildlings and returns to Castle Black.

The approaching wildling army attacks Castle Black; but Jon takes command of the defenses and repels several assaults, during which Ygritte is slain.

After that, the Watch's surviving leaders Janos Slynt and Alliser Thorne falsely accuse Jon of treachery, and send him north of the Wall to kill Mance under a pretense of parley.

As Jon is talking with Mance in the wildling camp, the army of King Stannis arrives, routing the Wildlings, and Mance is imprisoned. Stannis offers to legitimize Jon and make him Lord of Winterfell in exchange for his support, but Jon decides to decline Stannis' offer, and is elected by the Night's Watch as its new Lord Commander.

Daenerys Targaryen learns that large slave armies can be bought in Astapor , one of the cities of Slaver's Bay , and buys the entire host of the warrior-eunuch Unsullied by offering one of her infant dragons in exchange.

Upon payment, Daenerys orders the Unsullied and the dragon to turn on the slave traders and sack the city. With the help of her maturing dragons, she frees all the slaves of Astapor, including the Unsullied.

Daenerys' army then conquers the slaver city of Yunkai ; but the lords of neighbouring Meereen antagonize Daenerys by killing child slaves and burning the land to deny her resources.

Consequently, Daenerys besieges the city to no avail. Daenerys offers both men the chance to make amends by sneaking into Meereen to free the slaves and start an uprising.

Meereen soon falls and, in retaliation for the murdered child slaves, Daenerys has the city's rulers put to death. Selmy asks for Daenerys' forgiveness and becomes Lord Commander of her Queensguard, while Jorah, who refuses to admit any wrongdoing, is banished.

When Daenerys learns that the council she left to govern Astapor has been overthrown, she decides to remain in Meereen to rule it herself. The tale is told through the eyes of ten main characters, plus a one-off prologue POV and a one-off epilogue POV character, for a total of 12 narrators.

On October 6, , Martin noted on his blog that his manuscript for A Storm of Swords had been pages in length; [7] the initial printed hardcover came in at pages.

In contrast, he referred to the chapter of Joffrey's fatal wedding as "easy and fun to write" but that he nevertheless tried to instill empathy for the painful demise of this very unpopular character and "bring home the point that this, too, was a human being who was scared and terrified and then dead".

Publishers Weekly said the third volume was "one of the more rewarding examples of gigantism in contemporary fantasy. Those two fantasy greats are also evoked by Martin's ability to convey such sensual experiences as the heat of wildfire, the chill of ice, the smell of the sea and the sheer gargantuan indigestibility of the medieval banquet at its most excessive.

Perhaps this saga doesn't go as far beyond the previous bounds of high fantasy as some claim, but for most readers it certainly goes far enough to command their attention.

Archived from the original on Archived from the original on 14 April Martin began writing a detailed in-universe history text about the great Targaryen civil war known as the Dance of the Dragons in which Targaryen fought Targaryen and dragon fought dragon as a submission for an omnibus of collected works by several authors.

In his own words he got a bit carried away, and ended up writing a detailed 80, word history even though the maximum length set for the novella submission was 30, pages.

Martin had to focus only on one 30, work piece of the larger story, which he submitted as The Princess and the Queen This was later followed by The Rogue Prince , which is about 10, words long.

Therefore, as of about half of what he wrote has not been released. The narrative conceit that Martin developed for these prequels is a drastic departure from his previous third person POV writing style.

Instead, it is presented as an in-universe history text from Westeros written by "Archmaester Gyldayn". This format allowed Martin to write about events which were public knowledge to most people in Westeros, while still keeping the secret reasons why people actually did things unknown, or allowing secret betrayals to remain secret.

To explain why only a 30, page section of the full 80, word text Martin wrote was not released, he gave the in-universe explanation that Gyldayn's history text was severely damaged and certain volumes lost, but that new sections are released as soon as the Citadel can locate copies of the missing sections.

As a result, The Rogue Prince takes place immediately before The Princess and the Queen , but it isn't really a true "prequel" because they were both written at the same time.

Rather, it is as if the original draft was divided up into eight parts, of which The Princess and the Queen is "part two through part four" and The Rogue Prince is "part one", but the parts were then released out of order.

A reader can actually start with The Rogue Prince , out of publication order, without being spoiled for later events, because this is the order the material was actually originally intended to be read in.
