PREORDER The Winds of Winter (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 6), by George R.R. Martin - EST (8/4/2020)
The previous installment,A Dance with Dragons, covered less story than Martin intended, omitting at least one planned large battle sequence and leaving several character threads ending in cliffhangers. Martin intends to resolve these cliffhangers "very early" inThe Winds of Winter, saying "I'm going to open with the two big battles that I was building up to, the battle in the ice and the battle at Meereen—the battle of Slaver's Bay. And then take it from there."
