An unseen chapter from The Winds of Winter was posted on George R. R. Martin’s website today. Check it, it starts with:
She woke with a gasp, not knowing who she was, or where.
The smell of blood was heavy in her nostrils… or was that her nightmare, lingering? She had dreamed of wolves again, of running through some dark pine forest with a great pack at her hells, hard on the scent of prey.
Half-light filled the room, grey and gloomy. Shivering, she sat up in bed and ran a hand across her scalp. Stubble bristled against her palm.

We still have no idea when the sixth book in Martin’s ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ series will be published but hey, we’ll take what we’re given.
Because of Martin’s long gaps between publishing there’s always been the fear that Game of Thrones would one day catch up to the books. I still don’t know how to feel about (showrunners) David Benioff and Dan Weiss knowing the series’ end.
Until we get Winds of Winter bring on the fourth season of Game of Thrones. Is it the 6th (7th in NZ) of April yet?
