A Clash of Kings
Robert's death and his "son" Joffrey taking the throne has stirred a lot of defiance in the realm. Robert's youngest brother, Renly, believes he should be king, his other brother, Stannis, believes he should have the crown, and Robb Stark has been made king of the North. So many people calling themselves king and no wonder a war breaks out! I don't want to give too much away but all I can say is I really hate Theon Greyjoy! I was hoping someone would kill him off but the ending left me confused on if this did happen or not. So much happens in this book that I really don't feel I can sit here and summarize it all, if I tried I would be sitting her until late at night and this would be one super long blog entry! I will say one thing that continues to frustrate me is that the Stark children are all so far away from each other and it seems like no matter what they do they can't get closer to being with their family. Sansa is still stuck at King's Landing under the watchful eye of Queen Cersei, Arya is disguised as a boy and heading to the Wall, Jon travels beyond the Wall to discover what dangers await, Bran and Rickon remain at Winterfell, and Robb is fighting against Lannisters. I hope future books bring them back together. I know there are a lot in this series so I have some serious reading to do!
