Dying of the Light, finally. It's been sitting on my shelf for nigh on three years.I started and finished George R. R. Martin's |
It's horribly tragic and pure Martin. The writing is brilliant, the characters are fleshed out and drive the story. But tragic. I mean, the title refers to the planet that the story takes place on, which is a rogue planet (no home star) that has only a few years left to live. And it's a love story. A Martin love story.
It's also pretty short: the trade paperback weighs in around 240 pages of story, and you can polish it off in a couple of hours to get your grrm fix until he gets around to the next Ice & Fire book.
