The Winds of Winter is the upcoming sixth novel in the epic fantasy series of A Song of Ice and Fire.
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

A Song of Ice and Fire :: Series
George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series has set the benchmark for contemporary epic fantasy. Martin has conjured a world as complex and vibrant as that of J. R. R. Tolkien’s, populated by a huge cast of fascinating, complex characters, and boasting a history that stretches back twelve thousand years.
Three great storylines weave through the books, charting the civil war for control of the Seven Kingdoms; the defence of the towering Wall of ice in the uttermost north against the unearthly threat of the Others; and across the Narrow Sea the rise to power of Daenerys Targaryen and the last live dragons in the world.
