A Dance with Dragons - A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. Martin (Audio Book 5) (2011) (part 1 of 6

A Dance with Dragons is the fifth of seven planned novels in the epic fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire by American author George R. R. Martin. In some areas the paperback edition was published in two parts titled Dreams and Dust and After the Feast.A Dance with Dragons was originally intended to be the title of the second novel in the sequence when Martin still envisioned the series as a trilogy. Some early US editions of A Game of Thrones (1996) list A Dance of Dragons as the forthcoming second volume in the series. The 1998 anthology Legends which features the novella The Hedge Knight from the same universe lists A Dance of Dragons as the third installment of a four-book series. Like the previous four volumes in the Ice and Fire series the book includes a lengthy appendix with the volume running a total of 1040 pages. Jon Snow is elected the 998th Lord Commander of the Nights Watch but Janos Slynt refuses to acknowledge him. Although the punishment for such treason is death Jon publicly gives Janos three chances to follow his orders but Janos ignores all three warnings and Jon beheads him. This solidifies his new position as Lord Commander.Jon sends Val the sister of Mances dead Queen Dalla to make a truce with Tormund the leader of the surviving wildlings whom Jon allows into Westeros despite objection and forces them to reinforce the Wall against the Others. Tycho Nestoris a representative of the Iron Bank of Braavos arrives at the Wall to find Stannis but arrives after Stannis marches south with his army and explains that for Cerseis refusal to repay the crowns debts the Iron Bank now supports Stannis claim to power. Jon himself negotiates a loan with which the Nights Watch can buy food to survive the winter. Melisandre tells Jon repeatedly that he has enemies in the Watch. After recurring visions of a girl on a dying horse coming to the Wall Melisandre feigns Mance Rayders death and sends him south to rescue the girl (believed to be Arya Stark) while Jon tries to maintain the neutrality of the Watch in the civil war.Jon receives a taunting letter from Ramsay Bolton that he has crushed Stanniss army and demanding that Jon hand over Stanniss wife and daughter and his wildling hostages along with Ramsays servant Theon and his wife Arya (Jeyne Poole). When Jon announces that he will ride south against the Boltons with any who will volunteer of his subordinates Melisandres prophecy comes to fruition as Jon is attacked by several of these under Bowen Marsh and dies or loses consciousness.Beyond the Wall Bran Starks search for the Three-eyed Crow leads him to the last surviving Children of the Forest the non-human natives of Westeros. In the Childrens cave they meet the "Three-eyed Crow" alias the "Last Greenseer": a former human member of the Nights Watch seated on an underground weirwood throne for so long that its roots have fused into his body who appeared as the Three-eyed Crow in Brans dreams to train him in greensight. Using this ability Bran sees memories of his father Ned Stark at Winterfells godswood in the past and communicates with Theon Greyjoy at the godswood in the present.
