    [TWOW SPOILERS] March 2014 Preview Chapter Part IV

    That's what she's meant to do and all she has to do. It is the will of the gods that should not be thwarted.

    So how do you see Arya doing this? Slipping a knife between her mother's ribs? Cutting her head off? Crushing her temple, shooting an arrow through her eye, hanging her, setting her on fire, some other sweet mother-daughter bonding moment I haven't thought of? Besides getting rid of a character you may not like, how is Arya's matricide better than Lady Stoneheart's revenge? I'm sure GRRM will get rid of Lady Stoneheart in his own good time, but as much as he's given to horrible endings I can't see him having one of his favorite characters euthanizing her mother with an axe, or whatever, especially when there's so many other people Arya could be killing.

    The Traitor Son Cycle by Miles Cameron

    Thanks, I enjoyed that, in fact I think the writing was bit better than in the Red Knight.

    The Traitor Son Cycle by Miles Cameron

    Interesting. Thank you. I don't think that we'll see Desiderata (whom I found rather irritating) in the next book because I don't think it will take place in Alba. I have great hopes for Maggie, however, who has power in her own right, and I assume that the Captain, being a healthy young man, will have one or more love interests in the future, preferably not with a sprite who dances around in her chemise at the least excuse. However, it appears from the author's website and facebook page that he's very interested in medieval warfare, and all those battle scenes don't leave much room women's roles.

    Upthread there did seem to be some questions about relationships and, in particular, what the Captain could have whispered to the King, that would be clarified by identifying the source material. But as long as you know, maybe you can tell me I'm rather surprised that there isn't more discussion of this book; I thought it was a rip-roaring good story, I liked the premise , and I really liked the magical system. Good work with the dragons, lol.

    I agree. This should help explain relationships:

    Oooooo. Good catch. I knew there was a reason I didn't like Stannis and his R'hllorites.
