Guest Posted April 21, 2018 Share Posted April 21, 2018 When ADWD ends, there's so many different characters with their own arcs and plots going around, that I wouldn't be surprised if Martin had to split the next saga into 2 book using the same format as AFFC and ADWD, and then add an additional 8th book. Except where ADWD goes well beyond where AFFC ends, the second book ends at around the same time frame as the first. If not, maybe he'll tear a page out of Tolkein's book and split TWOW into 2 parts focusing on different regions and characters. Part 1 can take place in King's Landing, the Riverlands, the Vale, Bravos, Stormlands, Dorne, Reach, and Oldtown. Part 2 could take place in the North, Iron Islands, at the Wall and beyond, and further east in Essos. Let's say part 1 lasts about 650 pages, but at around the 300 page mark, certain characters like Jamie, Sansa, and Arya start disappearing because they're changing locations. Then, in part 2, at around the 1000 page mark, they start reappearing and the book continues that way for another 500-600 pages. Whatever happens, the next book is gonna rule.
