Started 'A Dance with Dragons' this week, 200 pages in and already enjoying it more than 'A Feast For Crows' which was good but took about 500 pages to really get going IMO.
Yeah, Dance of Dragons is better than Feast For Crows, but it's not a very wide margin as far as quality. It's the pacing, the events transpiring, all coming together in DoD that make it a better book in my opinion, there's SO much fallout to deal with. Of course I won't spoil it, but it's a great book.
I'd recommend to anyone that enjoys the Fantasy genre: The Wheel of Time series. I've been an avid reader from a very young age & yet this series is hands down the best I've ever read. There are 15
total books including the New Spring which serves as a Prologue for the entire series & I've been through the entire series 4 times over the years.
If you're a fan of character development, war on a global scale throughout dimensions of time & space, & badass abilities, this is the one for you.
