New Excerpt from The Winds of Winter Released

By Jacob Klein on Apr 3, 2015 to Game of Thrones

With all the talk of the books catching up with the TV show as the sixth book in the series falls farther and farther into the future– George RR Martin may be trying to belay some spoilers.  Yesterday, the author released an an excerpt from a chapter in  The Winds of Winter.  The chapter is from Sansa’s point of view and obviously contains some major spoilers (even for book readers!)

Here’s a taste if you’re into that sort of thing:alayne_stone_oakenvia

 No man can wed me so long as my dwarf husband still lives somewhere in this world. Queen Cersei had collected the head of a dozen dwarfs, Petyr claimed, but none were Tyrion’s. “Sweetrobin, you must not say such things. You are the Lord of the Eyrie and Defender of the Vale, and you must wed a highborn lady and father a son to sit in the High Hall of House Arryn after you are gone.”

Robert wiped his nose. “But I want — “

She put a finger to his lips. “I know what you want, but it cannot be. I am no fit wife for you. I am bastard born.”

“I don’t care. I love you best of anyone. “

Dun dun DUN!  Okay, so that wasn’t that huge of a spoiler.. we didn’t want to ruin the moment for you.  Check it out yourself.  Miss the first Winds of Winter chapters?  Check them out here.

For those that have read this chapter, what do you think? Is Sansa turning to the dark side of the force? Do you still like her character or are you annoyed? Do you want some lemon cakes while reading?

Still haven’t read the books and are worried about the show spoiling them before you get the chance? You should really consider picking up the complete set and getting to work!

    At this rate, I’m just going to read all the chapters he publishes on line and be content with that. GRRM has way too much on his plate – if there was a way he would consider cancelling a lot of Comic Conventions he likes to attend in favour of getting down to business, man oh MAN would I (along with millions of fans) be flipping ecstatic! Alas, this is not meant to be. Hopeful for a 2016 release.
