Review: Ahhh, back to brilliance. I enjoyed Blood and Gold (second half of A Storm of Swords) as much as I did A Game of Thrones. Once again I was regularly fooled into thinking I had some idea where the story was going, and once again it went somewhere completely different most of the time. I can’t really say much about why I enjoyed the book without spoiling it, so I’ll just settle with saying that I thoroughly enjoyed it. If you found the second book slightly stale compared to the first book, read on. The third book brings the A Song of Ice and Fire right back up to the level of A Game of Thrones.
