“Tyrion, Jon, Dany, Stannis and Melisandre, Davos Seaworth, and all the rest of the characters you love or love to hate will be along next year (I devoutly hope) in A Dance with Dragons, which will focus on events along the Wall and across the sea, just as the present book focused on King’s Landing.”George R. R. Martin June 2005.

The saddest moments for me have been going through Sansa being abused and seeing her trying putting up an emotional wall. Also, jeyne Poole fate.

This from Theon made me sad.

“And Robb. Robb who had been more a brother to Theon than any son born of Balon Greyjoy’s loins. Murdered at the Red Wedding, butchered by the Freys. I should have been with him. Where was I? I should have died with him."

Old Aemon often gave me a sad feeling but maybe not the saddest moment.

The Theon bit about the red wedding, but that also gave me a bit of hope

Theon thinking about Robb and the Red Wedding. Also in the HBO show, the moment Ned and Jon part ways, when Ned goes south. Heartbreaking if you already know that won't happen.
