Sinopse: The long-awaited fifth volume in the hugely popular and highly acclaimed epic fantasy A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE The last of the Targaryons, Daenerys Stormborn, the Unburnt, has brought the young dragons in her care to their terrifying maturity. Now the war-torn landscape of the Seven Kingdoms is threatened by destruction as vast as in the violent past. Tyrion Lannister, a dwarf with half a nose and a scar from eye to chin, has slain his father and escaped the Red Keep in King’s Landing to wage war from the Free Cities beyond the narrow sea. The last war fought with dragons was a cataclysm powerful enough to shatter the Valyrian peninsula into a smoking, demon-haunted ruin half drowned by the sea.

With the combined influences of Isolde’s cunning wit and talent for healing, and Trystan’s strength and bravery, they must win the loyalty of a kingdom to fight for the side of right. .

With admissions of love hanging in the air, both Trystan and Isolde feel that their presence puts the other at greater risk.

    Só uma pequena observação: ainda não há data prevista para a publicação do livro do Martin… Não sei onde viste o 30 de Setembro, mas se foi numa loja online é, na melhor das hipóteses, uma previsão. A Amazon, por exemplo, já mudou n vezes a data de publicação :/
    Só acredito quando vir no site do Martin 😉
