Martin hasn't left us completely high and dry — he has already released several chapters of The Winds of Winter, which we've rounded up. All submissions with material from The Winds of Winter must be explicitly tagged. I've been putting off reading the available chapters, since I was unsure These are, as far as I know, the only ones released so far (excluding. The series that HBO's Game of Thrones is based on has been notoriously slow to publish. This week a fan asked for more sample chapters from his next book in the Song of Ice & Fire series. Released in December , Theon Greyjoy's chapter takes place during the timeline of A Dance.
Her holds were huge, and Victarion packed them with armed men. It was a fleet both fat and feeble, promising much in the way of wool and wines and other trade goods and little in the way of danger. Victarion gave the command of it to Wulf One-Ear. Any man can see that. Let them get close as they like, but keep your men hidden belowdecks until you are ready.
Drey and Garin and her sweet Spotted Slyva had been apartof her since she was little, trusted confidants who had shared her dreams and secrets, cheered her when she was sad, helped her face herfears. Oneofthemhad betrayedher,butshemissedthem all the same.
It was my own fault. Arianne had made them part of her plot to steal off with MyrcellaBaratheon andcrownherqueen,anactofrebellionmeanttoforceherfather'shand, but someone's loose tongue had undone her. The clumsy conspiracy had accomplished nothing, excepttocostpoorMyrcellapartofherface,andSerArysOakhearthislife. Arianne missed Ser Arys too, more than she ever would have thought.
He loved me madly she told herself, yet I was never more than fond of him.
I made use of him inmybedandinmy plot, took hisloveandtookhishonor,gavehimnothingbutmybody. Why else would her white knight have charged right into Areo Hotah's longaxe, to die the way he did? I was a foolish willful girl,playingatthegameofthroneslikea drunkardrollingdice. The cost of her folly had been dear. Drey had been sent across the world to Norvos, Garin exiled to Tyrosh for two years, her sweet silly smiling Slyva married off to Eldon Estermont, a man old enough to be her grandsire.
Ser Arys had paid with his life's blood, Myrcella with an ear. You need to hold your tongue. Or must I send you back?
That vow she will keep , Arianne decided. She kissed her cousin on the cheek and sent her off to sleep. They reached Mistwood late on the third day.
Guards at every gate. That was vexing. Limp golden banners could be either. She nodded. The third was armed only with a nasty grin.
Both knights, to hear them tell it. He wielded them like a whip. The sellswords exchanged a look. Chain gave a snort.
We serve your rightful king, old crone. What will you do, kill me? I have lived too long already. Married or unmarried, the men make no distinctions. We follow orders.
Chain nodded. If you want it, you take it. Both of them still had their clothes on. Then she turned to Elia. A serving man.
He cleans up birdshit for the maester. Elia, what were you thinking? A serving man, but still a man. Kiss all the boys you want when we return to Dorne. Must I add chaste to that as well? It took Arianne and her company the better part of eight days.
A sad tale, and a familiar one, Arianne thought. Or else a fool. She wondered. How many men can he have? That way is hopeless too. That night Arianne penned another short note to her father and had Feathers send it on its way with her third raven. Lysono Maar spoke the Common Tongue very well. Was this what Viserys looked like?
The Lyseni was a very different sort of man than Chain. Arianne decided to confront him openly. You are still sellswords. That seemed to amuse him. And some of those defeats were near things. Dorne has no such refuge. The princess lapsed into a thoughtful silence.
This one is no fighter , Arianne sensed.
