When it was announced that the next book in George R.R. Martin Song of Ice and Fire series The Winds of Winter was not going to come out before season six of the HBO series Game of Thrones a lot of book fans cried out in anger and pain.
A lot of people (myself included) feared that the show would spoil things from the books for those of us who read them, but Martin has promised us there is still a twist to look forward to because the show had killed off a character who is still alive in the books and that character is key to the twist. Who is it? The hell if I know, but readers can take a deep breath knowing that they do still have things to look forward to in the book series.
