Bad Hound! Posted October 3, 2012 Share Posted October 3, 2012 Hi,First message!First of all, I am currently reading aSoS part 1 (in my country, it is divided in 2 parts: 1 - Steel & Snow, and 2: Blood & Gold), and basically I am at a point which spooks me out: Spoiler in a Davos POV chapter, he sees Stannis use 3 leeches that Melisandre gives him, so that he can "order" 3 deaths: Robb, Balon Greyjoy and Joffrey. I have a feeling these 3 will really die. How spooky is that, has Melisandre got that much power??? Can't wait to find out!! It looks like followers of Rh'llor have real powers though, as <spoiler> we've also just seen Thoros of Myr resurrect Beric Dondarrion after he kinda lost his fight with the Hound.So what do you think? Is Rh'llor the real deal? Are the old gods (from the North) and gods from the Faith of The Seven just plain superstitions, and the real gods are R'llor and its opposite the Great Other?The other question I had was: I am quite a slow reader (mostly due to not having much time to read during the day, I only read at night before going to bed and so can only read about 20-30 pages a night before falling asleep), and I was thinking of using that to pace myself and not have to wait too much for GRRM to release the next book by the time I have finished aDwD. With this in mind, I have yet to read:- aSoS part 2- aFfC- aDwDWhen do you think the next one (the Winds of Winter) will be out? My guess is early 2014, does that sound realistic to you? (hard to guess, I know). I'll base my reading pace on that, this basically gives me 6 months for each book I have yet to read.I love reading all the threads on here, and it's hard to keep the discipline not to read the spoilers.And just as an aside, the character that fascinates me the most so far is Roose Bolton. I tend to agree with posters who say he has a most important part to play in future books and there's more to him than meets the eyes, his backstory (and Ramsay his bastard) has the potential to be fascinating. It seems to me he is playing a much longer game than the game of thrones that others play. Anyway it's all speculation at this stage. Cheers!
