I believe it is SoS, Chapter 36 (Davos), when he has an audience with Stannis in the Map Table room after being removed from...his less-than-comfortable chambers on Dragonstone. Stannis relates the words of Melisandre to Davos in the book, but I have a feeling they have transferred this tidbit of information to Selyse for the show.
Anyone else bummed that they're giving Selyse a bigger role? I get the requirements of TV drama argument, but I REALLY dislike Selyse as a character. I am hoping to see her bite it (by fire!) in WoW.
It is chapter 37, Davos.
"It is the great battle His Grace is speaking of," said a woman's voice, rich with the accents of the east. Melisandre stood at the door in her red silks and shimmering satins, holding a covered silver dish in her hands. "These little wars are no more than a scuffle of children before what is to come. The one whose name may not be spoken is marshaling his power, Davos Seaworth, a power fell and evil and strong beyond measure. Soon comes the cold, and night that never ends." She placed the silver dish on the Painted Table. "Unless true men find the courage to fight it Men whose hearts are fire."
The teaser ..--That seems is, condensed.
Odd, Melisandre says 'Men', nothing about a woman marshaling the powers of the East, a woman with dragons.
Some things, maybe Mel does not see?
