My previous post sort of illustrates why I've got high hopes for A Dance With Dragons (to be released July 12th, 2011!), actually. Daenerys seems to be the sole exception to what I've been talking about. She arises from the ashes of destruction (and not only metaphorically) not embittered, but determined. She has lost the last scraps of what made her naive, leaving only a force to be reckoned with. It appears that she is the sole remaining redeeming faction in the series...
So I'm looking forward to getting that next book more than I was in picking up the few books before it, really.
Of course, GRRM will probably piss on these last few embers of my hope, but...ah, hell. Whatever.
What sphinx of plascrete and adamantium bashed open their skulls and ate up their brains and imagination? Imperator! Imperator!
