I am ordering a copy as soon as possible (i'm currently in the middle of Devil's Brood - i postponed the pleasure of reading it till Lionheart comes out).

I just wanted to ask if there's John (the Prince John one) in this. I looove John but reviews don't mention him, so i was wondering :)

Flogging Molly - Queen Anne's Revenge

Two Steps From Hell - Norwegian Pirate

Great celebration today of a Victory Day. I live on the eighteenth floor, so i can see a lot of the city from my window, and the sky was lit with multiple fireworks. And i saw helicopters with flags heading for the Victory Parade in the morning. Anyway, great celebration for a great day. And i'm bac...

[quote=""Susan""]This summer we are going to Copenhagen, Stockholm, Helsinki, and St. Petersburg. We're flying into Copenhagen and will spend three days there.

[quote=""Ash""]No kidding. I almost quit that book midway through after the 'Red Wedding' but was glad to have finished it. BTW, a bit of background - Martin has written four of the seven books he meant for the series, and its been ten years since the fourth one. Many fans are rabid about this, infu...

[quote=""Ash""]Oh my goodness you must read Mays Pliocene Exiles!

[quote=""parthianbow""]That's an awfully big statement to make, Sintra! And it's one I disagree with bigtime. I'm sure others would agree. I'm not alone in thinking that Guy Gavriel Kay's books have been a massive contribution to fantasy. He's commonly placed up there with Tolkien. So too is Stephen...

[quote=""Madeleine""]Isn't Arya a couple of years older than Bran in the book? I think she's 9 and he's about 7. I couldn't stand Arya in the book, thought she was an irritating little pain and all that fight training and creeping about was tedious, it reminded me of Luke Skywalker and Yoda! I quite...
