A Feast for Crows Book Summary.
War of the Five Kings, after its adverse results, is finally reaching an end. Renly is already dead while his brother Stannis Baratheon has also lost and has taken refuge on the wall. On the Wall, Jon Snow has become the new Lord Commander which is now the 998th Lord Commander by the democratic voting.
In the King’s Landing, after the death of his brother, King Tommen now rules the seven kingdoms with his mother by his side and with his grandfather died. Tyrion Lannister kills his father and flees the seven kingdoms. Petyr Baelish has killed Lisa Arryn in the Vale and has become Lord Protector of it. After Tywin Lannister dies, Cersei now has control of Kings Landing.
However, things are not going as well as she does not have loyal people around her and she is not ready to listen to advice. Her uncle Kevan tries to advise her and so does Jamie but she disregards their attempts at helping her keep the kingdom out of chaos.
At the same time, she has now started to distrust Margery Tyrell. She gets a prophecy which shows her that she will see all her children become Kings but they will all die while she is still alive. We see this becoming true as Tommen and Myrcella both die.
Brienne of Tarth, without knowing that Sansa is in Vale, is on her quest to find her with Jaime Lannister as her captive. Her quest takes her to different places around the Riverlands. She sees how war has destroyed the place. There, she meets Podrick Payne who was a squire for Tyrion Lannister. She also comes across a knight named Ser Hyle who she has also met before.
She also meets Lord Tarly who is Sam Tarly’s father. Even though Ser Hyle praises her, Lord Tarly insults her. During her quest, she is taken prisoner by the Brotherhood Without Banners. In a twist of events, Catelyn Stark has been resurrected by Beric Dondarrion and she has come back heartless and blood-loving.
She sentenced Brienne to death but then she offers to let her live if she agrees to kill Jamie. Brienne refuses to make a decision between the two offers and she is ultimately sentenced to be hanged. Still, there is a lot of stuff going on the seven kingdoms. On the other hand, Daenerys Targaryen has taken Meeren and now her dragons are well-grown.
There is an interesting context behind Tyrion killing his father. Tywin never liked his son. Every time when he would get the chance, he would humiliate. This could be due to the fact that when Tyrion was born, Joanna Lannister died while giving give birth.
Since Tywin loved her more than anything, he stays angry at Tyrion. Arya, across the narrow sea, has joined the Faceless Men. She loses her sight when she admits to killing someone. Even though she has gotten rid of everything else, she has kept her sword given to her by her brother.
When Tyrion got accused of murdering his nephew, Tywin saw an opportunity and almost made sure that Tyrion faces death. However, Jaime helps him in escaping but before he escapes, he kills his father and flees to the Eastern land with Lord Varys. On the wall, Jon Snow tells his friend Samwell to go to the Citadel and get information about the Others.
He order him to become a Maester. This is what Samwell always wanted so he travels to Oldtown accompanied by Gilly the wildling and Maester Aemon. Aemon becomes sick during this trip and he is told by a Summer Islander that Daenerys is coming with her dragons. He says that Daenerys has come for fulfilling a prophecy. He dies at 102, shortly after the party leaves Bravos.
All that’s remaining for her is to travel across the narrow sea and take back the throne with all the Dothraki, the second sons and unsullied at her side.
A Feast for Crows Review.
Even though this book did not do as well as the previous books as far as the ratings are concerned, still this book has much more importance. It is explaining all the events which are connecting the events from A Storm of Swords with A Dance of Dragons. Daenerys is also coming in power and she is stronger than ever. We see that Tyrion has also left Kings Landing now and he will now become an advisor for the Mother of Dragons. A lot of characters are developing especially Danny and Arya. Petyr is planning something and Sansa might get stuck in that.
But, there is a lot of stuff happening and definitely, there are a lot of conspiracies which are taking place and a lot of mysteries are being revealed. There is a new King, few contenders are dead, and the rightful heir to the throne has gained even more strength. The book is a bit different from the TV series as we see that Lady Stark has returned from the dead. This is quite exciting because she has come back as Lady Stoneheart. She even orders the death of Brienne of Tarth, who she previously trusted with her daughters.
The struggle for power is stronger than ever now and all the Houses are in it. From the Wall to the Dorne, every House is a part of this chaos. If it was me, I wouldn’t have waited for even a second to the get the books and started reading.
