Has everyone checked out the AFFC exceprt at http://www.georgerrmartin.com ? (Click the "Sample" button) I read it just then, and I must say, the next novel is definently going to be interesting, and Cersei is a POV character now, which Ive been eagerly waiting for. Anyway, what does everything think of it. When I read that last sentence, my jaw just dropped. Seems the Lannisters are going to be in a spot of bother. Check it out, and tell us what you think.
