Seriously I'm blown away. The last 30% of this book is crazy, and by crazy I mean amazing. The book starts out with Jorg as king and there is some serious back pedaling going on to make Jorg seem like a more sympathetic character. At least that was my take. And I'm like come on Jorg you're no Jamie Lannister. I can't say that I like Jorg I'm not even sure how to take him, but this book was a great read. Fast paced, a bit of mystery, and even zombies. Two books in I can't say enough good things about this series. I had anticipated taking a small break before starting Emporor of thrones, but now I'm not sure I can wait. Delicious, delicious dark fantasy.
