A Dance With Dragons (A Song of Ice and Fire, #5) - George R.R. Martin

At this point Tyrion is once again in peril.  Given that this is a George R. R. Martin book I don't know what to think.  He really is the master of suspense in fiction.  While as every SOIF there are slower moments as you spend time with characters you care less about so far this book has had many less of them.  


The description of what happened to poor Reeks fingers really made me uncomfortable, its amazing the effect that whole experience had on the poor boy.  Instead of wanting freedom he is now happy to be treated as a dog.  Really quite upsetting.
