    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.

    I read it a while ago, as well as the previous chapter, with a different new POV.
    Someone's finally bringing Cersei back down to earth like Tyrion always wanted, it seems. Good old Kevan. I'm not sure that writing Cersei's point of view will marshal sympathy for her like it did for Jaime, though (being, as she is, the most evil character in the books. Possible contenders: Gregor, Boltons, Freys)
    This book had better be good, we've waited long enough for it.

    Well, Jaime had a good reason for getting sympathy. Cersei doesn't have one, at the moment atleast.

    I also recall theres another POV character we haven't heard about yet ? Any guesses ? Im hoping its going to be The Hound, but I doubt it.

    This is in the back of my copy of ASoS. Good read though.
