    Just finished AGOT after several, several months (stupid school...). How would you all describe the second book? (non-spoiler please).

    I'll read it as soon as I'm done with Wolves of the Calla..

    Good?

    Like A Game of Thrones but more better

    I want to do with you
    What spring does with the cherry trees.

    Love the series and the characters so much that I'm willing to overlook the flaws.

    I'm curious how we have some idea of this.

    Are there hints in preview chapters or something?

    I mean,
    temporary blindness seems rather unsurprising, but I don't know of any specifics that would indicate that it would be.

    Can you tell me if this dream was worth it?

    Arya isn't showing up again until The Winds of Winter, so no, we don't know.

    I thought the idea was to split the POVs between Feast and Dance. Arya was in Feast, so she shouldn't be in Dance. Right?

    We're definitely getting Bran, Jon, Daenerys and Tyrion.

    Aside from that, almost certainly
    Theon, Davos and Stoneheart

    And then I'd really like to see
    Sandor and Jorah

    that idea is like 5 years old

    part of Dance is concurrent with the events of Feast but it extends beyond it too.
    In early 2010, Martin noted that his intent for A Dance with Dragons was for the first 800 manuscript pages to cover the alternate characters in the same time span as A Feast for Crows, and that "Everything that follows is post-Feast, so that's where some of the cast from the last book start popping up again."[2] Stating that "I wanted to resolve at least a few of the cliffhangers from Feast,"

    No I love that guy this is the dude who
    Is supposed to be protecting Myrcella, and in the last chapter decided he was going to make her queen or whatever.

    I can tell its going to get better - when the conflict actually begins. But right now its like... I can't make myself care.

    Oh! Arys Oakheart. Yeah, he's one of the less memorable POVs.

    Arys Oakheart isn't so bad, I especially like the bit where he gets
    chopped in two with an axe.

    The whole post shouldn't be a spoiler tag, so.
    About the Qyborg, if you read back to Bran's dream in GoT you'll find this passage:
    There were shadows all around them. One shadow was as dark as ash, with the terrible face of a hound. Another was armored like the sun, golden and beautiful. Over them both loomed a giant in armor made of stone, but when he opened his visor, there was nothing inside but darkness and thick black blood.

    Especially in proximity to Sandor and Jaime, there's only one great warrior in Westeros who fits that last description... at least now that he's been beheaded and made into a giant fucking zombie tank. Kind of cool to see these events foreshadowed in the first book.
