Synopsis

GAME OF THRONES: A NEW ORIGINAL SERIES, NOW ON HBO.

Few books have captivated the imagination and won the devotion and praise of readers and critics everywhere as has George R. R. Martin’s monumental epic cycle of high fantasy. Now, in A Feast for Crows, Martin delivers the long-awaited fourth book of his landmark series, as a kingdom torn asunder finds itself at last on the brink of peace . . . only to be launched on an even more terrifying course of destruction.

A FEAST FOR CROWS

It seems too good to be true. After centuries of bitter strife and fatal treachery, the seven powers dividing the land have decimated one another into an uneasy truce. Or so it appears. . . . With the death of the monstrous King Joffrey, Cersei is ruling as regent in King’s Landing. Robb Stark’s demise has broken the back of the Northern rebels, and his siblings are scattered throughout the kingdom like seeds on barren soil. Few legitimate claims to the once desperately sought Iron Throne still exist—or they are held in hands too weak or too distant to wield them effectively. The war, which raged out of control for so long, has burned itself out.

But as in the aftermath of any climactic struggle, it is not long before the survivors, outlaws, renegades, and carrion eaters start to gather, picking over the bones of the dead and fighting for the spoils of the soon-to-be dead. Now in the Seven Kingdoms, as the human crows assemble over a banquet of ashes, daring new plots and dangerous new alliances are formed, while surprising faces—some familiar, others only just appearing—are seen emerging from an ominous twilight of past struggles and chaos to take up the challenges ahead.

It is a time when the wise and the ambitious, the deceitful and the strong will acquire the skills, the power, and the magic to survive the stark and terrible times that lie before them. It is a time for nobles and commoners, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and sages to come together and stake their fortunes . . . and their lives. For at a feast for crows, many are the guests—but only a few are the survivors.

A Feast for Crows: A Song of Ice and Fire: Book Four
Average rating
4.5 / 5
Worst of the series. Still a great book
February 27th, 2015
''A Storm of Swords'' is tough to follow. However ''A Feast for Crows'' features some of the least interesting story lines in the series. But it is necessary to build for events to come. Still a great read overall. Recommended if youre into the books or the show.

Longest speed bump in the series, glad that's over. Don't expect any excitement here, just drawn out character development. I will still read the fifth though.

Another great book in the series
January 26th, 2014
I was astonished to read the reviews for A Feast For Crows, many complaining about the odd choice of character narrators. I found affc rather refreshing and enjoyed seeing westeros through cersei and brienne's eyes (amongst others). While I did miss daeny and her dragons the goings on in this novel more than kept me occupied.. That said, there were a few small annoyances in the repetition and introduction of new words and phrases, no doubt readers get bored of 'groats' and 'nuncles' by the books end. All told A Feast For Crows is another splendid and extraordinary addition to the song of ice and fire series.

Interesting, but slow
August 12th, 2013
Definitely the slowest read so far in the series, and tons of new characters to learn, etc.. but still worthwhile in the long run. I enjoy the Arya sub plot more than anything else in this installment

I was extremely bored during most of the first three quarters but the last bit I couldn't stop reading. I'll be starting the fifth book soon enough!

A feast for crows
June 13th, 2013
Unequivocally accepted by many fans as an installment offering less than expected elucidation than hopes for; in retrospect Martin offers a wonderous focus upon the women of westeros. Likewise, Martin gives introduction to Dorne, and among my favourite characters Hotah annd Prince Dorne. Up until the remaining two hundres pages A Feast for Crows stands as a significant amd necessary installment for subsequent installments.

As always, Martin's books leave one wanting more. This one is no different. It fills in and furthers one's knowledge of the main characters. Carry on George and some hurry wouldn't hurt!

Not my favourite in the series ...
March 26th, 2013
... but let's be honest, if you've read the first three you're going to read it anyway. I don't fault GRRM for anything here, I think it's a necessary lull in the action, especially after the events of Book 3. All I'm saying is that it's a bit slow.
