George has released a new sample chapter, and it has lots and lots of details, including our finally learning just where Aurane Waters went. See it here.

Feel free to discuss in detail here, but avoid discussing these details in the other forums without sufficient use of spoiler warnings and the spoiler tags.

So, Areo's off to kill Darkstar. Guess we know how we'll see that confrontation. And we have our dancing dragons finally. Even if it's just a dream.

And I feel bad for Doran. He's not going to take the news of Quentyn well.

Aurane Waters is the pirate king, who has set up in Torturer's Deep, no?

So now Daemon Sand and, it seems, the Red Viper called Dayne "Darkstar" as well. So we can drop the pretense that it's something Dayne made up, yes?

Also, the way Daemon Sand thinks Dayne can put an end to Obara (and Hotah, reading between the lines) ... well, that's a testament to his general poisonous attributes, suggesting he'll stoop to anything to kill and survive, but that could also extend to suggesting that, you know, if it comes to it, he might well be a match for either (or both).

George is definitely building up Darkstar having a suitably dark reputation, though, if even the Red Viper thought he was too dangerous to have around.

It seems so... I actually quite enjoy this outcome.

Yes, I think we can all agree that Darkstar must have some important role to play, seeing as how a POV character is off to deal with him now.

Thanks! I guess if I'd have done even a second of looking around, I would have seen it, but I was sooo excited!

Awesome chapter! From JonCon letter to Arianne thoughts about Daenerys being her father's daughter, and the dance of the dragons with people dying around. Can't wait!

The chapter also confirms the "Lord Yronwood" that Oberyn poisoned to earn his moniker. I wonder what happened to Ormond?

Lord of the Waters -> Lord of the Tides, the title of the Velaryon lords. And his name being Waters and all. Yeah, it's him.

Also, it's possible that Tarth has fallen.

And this whole thing makes me wonder what happened to Davos' wife and youngest sons.

Not to mention more krakens have appeared.

Great chapter, Dorne's anti-dragon tactics will make the second DOtD much more interesting. Dany will surely win but it wont be a easy fight.

Emoticons cannot describe my feelings at having a new sample chapter.

Probably something like;

JonCon: Who are you?
Wife: We are Lord Davos Seaworth's family
JonCon: Whose family? Don't know that guy. Is he around?
Wife: No, he's off with King Stannis.
JonCon: Well, I have this kid, maybe you've heard of him... Aegon Targaryen. He' your real king, and we are now taking your castle and lands and holding you hostage to try and break down Stannis' brain trust.
