In order to keep the main "Winter is Coming" thread from becoming a morass of spoiler tags as people read A Dance With Dragons at different paces, I thought this might be a good idea.
To be clear, there will be spoilers.
To get us started . . . I liked the Griff chapters, but I'm undecided on the idea of an additional Targaryen running around. Bringing him in adds an intriguing new faction, especially with the connection to Varys and Illyrio, but it makes Dany a little less special.
Speaking of Aegon VI, was that foreshadowed at all? The image of the Mountain bashing baby Aegon's brains out was a powerful one in earlier books and one that Martin went back to several times, but I don't recall there being any noticeable ambiguity to it.
