(Spoiler alert! The following contains plot details for A Dance With Dragons and a preview of The Winds of Winter.)
There's still no word on when the sixth installment in George R.R. Martin's epic A Song of Ice and Fire saga (that's Game of Thrones to you television viewers), but the author has revealed some details for the upcoming Winds of Winter.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Martin talks about what will happen when two fan-favorite characters -- Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) and Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) -- finally meet.
Well, Tyrion and Dany will intersect, in a way, but for much of the book they're still apart. They both have quite large roles to play here. Tyrion has decided that he actually would like to live, for one thing, which he wasn't entirely sure of during the last book, and he's now working toward that end—if he can survive the battle that's breaking out all around him. And Dany has embraced her heritage as a Targaryen and embraced the Targaryen words. So they're both coming home.
Martin also deliverd some of the most foreboding news he could about the book: "We have more deaths, and we have more betrayals. We have more marriages."
If you're heading to a Westeros wedding, make sure you wear some armor.
