Information about this novel (this information has been combined from two different sources):
"We are going to start out with the two enormous battles, the battle in the ice and the battle at Meereen — the battle of Slaver's Bay. We have more deaths, and we have more betrayals. We have more marriages. The Dothraki are coming back into the story in a big way and a lot of stuff is happening at The Wall. Tyrion and Daenerys will intersect, in a way, but for much of the book they are still apart. They both have quite large roles to play here.
Tyrion has decided that he actually would like to live, for one thing, which he wasn't entirely sure of during the last book, and he is now working toward that end — if he can survive the battle that is breaking out all around him. And Dany has embraced her heritage as a Targaryen and embraced the Targaryen words. So they are both coming home."
- George R. R. Martin
