The series, A Song Of Ice And Fire, narrates an epic fantasy story that is set in Westeros and Essos, two separate continents that share an ancient history and are linked by a common dynasty. The first two novels trace the events in Westeros after the death of the last king of the Targaryen Dynasty. The third book is set in the continent of Essos, where the last known descendant of the Targaryen line, Daenerys Targaryen, slowly rises to power.
The whole series traces the power struggle for the Iron Throne of Westeros, with various factions staking claim to it.
In the fourth book, A Feast For Crows, the War of the Five Kings finally draws to an end. Most of the main disputants for the Iron throne are dead. Jon Snow, the alleged son of Eddard Stark, has now become the Commander of the Night watch. In the absence of King Stannis Baratheon, Joffrey’s eight year old brother, Tommen Baratheon, is now the ruler of King’s Landing, watched over by his mother Cersei Lannister.
The manuscript of A Feast for Crows was so huge that the author was compelled to split it. He decided to split the novel geographically rather than chronologically. For this reason, A Feast For Crows and A Dance With Dragons trace events that take place simultaneously, but in different locations. In A Feast For Crows, the story focuses on the happenings in Westeros, the Riverlands, Dorne, King’s Landing, and the Iron Islands. The events in Essos, Winterfell, and the Wall are covered in A Dance With Dragons.
Cersei Lannister finally realizes her dreams of power as she is now the factual ruler of King’s Landing. She is not as skilled in administration as she is in intrigue and makes many ill-advised moves, making many enemies in the process, leading to her own downfall. The book also follows the events in the Riverlands, the Eyrie, Iron Islands, and Dorne. This book also covers a part of the story of Arya Stark in the East. The rest of her story is covered in the next book.

Unexpectedly AwesomeAfter reading the reviews given by the other customers, I had actually expected this book to be a sore disappointment. However, I am glad to tell you all that that is not the case with the book. Many of the readers might have been disappointed due to the absence of the more liked characters such as Tyrion Lannister, Daenarys Targaryen and Jon Snow. However, I didn't find that to be a hindrance of any sorts, mainly because the plot in this book revolves around King's Landing, Braavos and Dorne, none of where these characters are present. The form of writing and the storyline is still as splendi… (Expand)

Book four in the song of fire and iceAn un-forseen health condition rendered me to take bed rest for a week. Which gave me ample of time to finish the fourth part of Song of Fire & Ice.

DisappointedCompared to the preceding three books in the series, the fourth one feels like a prolonging attempt by the author very similar to the Saas-Bahu soap operas.

Worst in the series.As many others would agree, this is the worst of the series. However, Martin does do a great job with character building. Too bad it took an entire 800 page book only to develop characters with the story going nowhere.

Good Read for GOT FansThis book is slow in pace in comparison to the others books in GOT series. Revolves mainly around events happening in Kings Landing, Dorne and with Krakens. But again Martin's compelling story writing had made this book an interesting and effortless read and like always as it happened with previous book of GOT series this book will also end on a high with unexpected twists....

Very good book albeit with a different tone to it's predecessorSome of the criticism this book receives is unjustified. A part of the criticism comes from not having some of the main characters and the other part comes from the lull after Storm of Swords. GRRM captures the mood very well. The war is on temporary hiatus (if you like) with many of the major armies either defeated (North) or unwilling to commit (Vale, Dorne) for different reasons. Dorne and the Iron Islands have been depicted very well. Doran Martell goes from frustrating the life out of every reader in the initial pages with his apparent reluctance to one of the big major players in Westero… (Expand)
