GRRM's next book

Game of Thrones, Season 2 teaser...

I'm pretty sure everyone has seen this by now since it aired in the States on Sunday but here is the latest teaser for Season 2 - A Game of Thrones: A Clash of Kings...



Love that the preview is narrated by Stannis. I really hope they expand on his part 'cause that would mean more Mel and more Davos, and likely more Renly (and hopefully less Dany, her part pretty much sucks IMO after the first season!). The only problem with the trailer is that it is so dark. Everyone is in shadow and it is so difficult to see...even in HD. Meh! They probably wanted it that way for dramatic effect *rolls eyes* In the most recent edition of Entertainment Weekly, GRRM stated that he has already completed about 100 pages of the next book and was going to start working on it again in January. That all sounded promising...until he mentioned the novel was going to be about 1500 pages long *groan* *headdesk*...My guess is we won't see The Winds of Winter until 2014, or, at the very best, fall of 2013...and judging by his past record I'm thinking I'm being a little optimistic.

In other news re: one of my fav authors, Julie Kagawa, re: The Iron Fey series, will now be focusing on vampires in her upcoming Blood of Eden series. The first novel, The Immortal Rules, will be released in May 2012. I would be reluctant in that it seems like EVERYONE has already written about vampires...but she is a great author so I may check it out...after I read City of Lost Souls since it is released on May 8, 2012. I'm so looking forward to more Jace and Simon (and Magnus and Alec...and can we maybe get Isabella a bf???)
