An unexpected death kicks off this epic but forgettable dark fantasy, the direct sequel to The Sworn (2011) and sixth overall in Martin’s sprawling saga. The Winter Kingdoms are threatened by Temnotta, a long-isolated nation now on the warpath. Isencroft is on the verge of civil war after the king is assassinated. A serial killer stalks the streets of Principality City, killing young women and angering ghosts. Summoner-King Martris Drayke must balance the use of forbidden magic with the desperate needs of his kingdom, even as he fights for the soul of his infant son. As all of these crises come to a head, the heroes and leaders of the Winter Kingdoms are tested like never before. Ambitious in scope and meticulous in detail, this adventure has no shortage of intrigue and action. Unfortunately, it’s bogged down by a sizable cast, myriad plot lines, and a slow start. (Feb.)
