Knepah Posted November 16, 2011 Share Posted November 16, 2011 The Winds of Winter. I can't help but read several things from the name alone. A saying in ASOIAF is Words are wind, to suggest that words can never hurt you, which we've all seen isn't true. Words and propaganda have destroyed and even killed people in this series. The phrase appeared a lot in the second half of A Dance With Dragons. I don't think the "Winter" in the title means winter as in the season either, but more-so, the North, the Lands of Winter, the KINGS of Winter. Perhaps the kernel of the next book may be about the conspiracy of the Northmen to overthrow the Boltons and the Freys in the north and replace them with the Starks. The Winds could also mean the power or the strength of the north, maybe one last uprising against the Iron Throne? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
