Yeah it did seem a little ropey at times. The other sets were more believable.

Cool thats what I thought.......one question......why was her baby deformed and er kinda sounded like a dragon? Is it something to do with the witch and trading the babies life so Khal could live (even though he didnt)

I think the witch knew what she was doing, sort of a 'be careful what you wish for' thing.
While he did live (what she asked for) he was a complete cabbage.

Mind you, he wasn't exactly a sparkling and witty conversationalist to begin with. I doubt she could have been pining for his wry, amusing take on the latest news and gossip.

I thought his theories on the socio-political unrest in Westeros was first class. His interpretation of Ulyses was also particularly interesting.

She fell for the man that raped her on her wedding night. So sweet!

Book 1: The maegi knew what she was doing. She was acting out of revenge for the Lhazareen that the Kahl had enslaved and killed in an earlier raid.

"Saved me?" The Lhazareen woman spat. "Three riders had taken me, not as a man takes a woman but from behind, as a dog takes a bitch. The fourth was in me when you rode past. How then did you save me? I saw my god's house burn, where I had healed good men beyond counting. My home they burned as well, and in the street I saw piles of heads. I saw the head of the baker who make my bread. I saw the head of a boy I had saved from deadeye fever, only three moons past. I heard children crying as the riders drove them off with their whips. Tell me again what you saved."
"Your life."
Mirri Maz Duur laughed cruelly. "Look to your khal and see what life is worth, when all the rest is gone."
- A Game of Thones, George R.R. Martin

Can I suggest something about the Book Spoilers? I've read the first three books but obviously don't want to read any spoilers for the later books. So maybe instead of 'Book' preceding the spoiler, can we say which book? I'm terrified of reading the above spoiler in case it tells me something I dont want to know...

I haven't seen any spoilers beyond book 1 so far but that's a good idea to flag such spoilers appropriately.

Book 8: Lando and Lia's marriage of convenience is uncovered by the Empire. Chewbacca's jealous streak gets the better of him when 3P0 is spotted in a steamy embrace with a young apple mac. What ever happened to the dragons, who knows?

Spoilers flood the Internet after 'Dance with Dragons' ships early

It's every fan's nightmare: You wait six years for a book, and then a couple weeks before it finally hits bookstores, the spoilers start popping up on fansites.
As "Game of Thrones" author George R. R. Martin wrote on his personal not-a-blog blog, "Amazon Germany screwed up big time and started shipping "A Dance with Dragons" before they were supposed to. I am told that about 180 copies got out before they were made aware of their mistake and shut down shipping."
Martin's response to the situation would make Tywin Lannister proud: "If we find out who is responsible, we will mount his head on a spike."
Because of the early shipping, spoilers for "Dragons" are popping up everywhere on the Internet -- especially in "A Song of Ice and Fire" forums.
Elio M. Garcia, Jr., webmaster for Martin fansite Westeros.org (which also manages A Wiki of Ice and Fire) explains that, at first, the website was planning to keep "Dragons" spoilers in a separate forum. (The Westeros.org gang got an early look at "Dragons" when Martin personally sent the book to them for "continuity checking.")
But after "Dragons"' UK publisher, Voyager, issued a statement pleading for people to avoid spoilers, "We've now tried to move to being spoiler-free," says Garcia. "But that sort of made us a target."
While noting that most of the spoilers are inaccurate or garbled -- "Most of the trolls have been misled by other trolls," he jokes -- Garcia notes that real genuine spoilers are out there...and predictably, they're mostly coming from horrible teenagers with nothing better to do.
"There's an 18- or 19-year-old guy from Kentucky. There's a teenager out in Australia that we've had problems with before, who occasionally sneaks in and causes trouble. It's just guys having a laugh."
"Dragons" publisher Random House had no comment on the early shipping, and indicated that there were no plans to bump up the book's July 12 release date.
So, if you're a "Dragons" fan, you might want to avoid fan forums, Facebook...heck, maybe just don't go on the internet or speak to anyone for the next 11 days.
