The great saga rumbles on. Sansa trapped at Kings Landing. Arya fled and trying to make her way back to Winterfell through the chaos of war. Robb fighting... and winning every battle. Tyrion endearing himself to the reader in spite of being a Lannister, playing the game of thrones and proving himself more than an able politician, tactician and even leader! Bran and Rickon trying to stay alive in the face of treason. Renly murdered, thanks to the dark magic of Stannis' red lady. Daenerys lost and helpless in Qarth, with just her dragons to give her hope. And Jon, cold, miserable and witnessing events that will become increasingly important in the series, I'm sure!
