Warning: Major Spoilers
One of the greatest qualities about George R.R. Martin’s “Song of Ice and Fire” series is its multiple storylines spread around from the Wall to King’s Landing to across the Narrow Sea. The epic seems to have a story for everyone. Fantasy fans love the Northern storyline for its use of magic and traditional tropes in story-telling. Others love the battle for the Iron Throne that never seems to end. Politics, twists, and unconventional plot methods have changed the way we read stories now. And if you like what’s happening across the sea, well, then you’re just a Daenerys fan.
With The Winds Of Winter approaching, many story-lines left unfinished throughout the series will hopefully find a conclusion. The Battle for Winterfell and Meeren will reach their exciting conclusion with many characters converging and potentially dying. Jaime Lannister and Brienne will confront Lady Stoneheart. The Night’s Watch has rebelled and assassinated Jon Snow. We have many questions heading into the next book and we hope we find our answers.
It would be churlish not to at least acknowledge that one of the biggest questions regarding the next book for some is possibly “Will George R.R. Martin actually finish it?” Now that we have that out of the way we can dive into the other big questions, which should be answered in The Winds Of Winter.
