    Summary

    Three weeks into their delightful slog across Westeros, during yet another charming day of shitting in the woods, eating half-raw squirrel, and trudging his feet bloody, the single most dour and uninteresting woman Jaime had ever met in all of Westeros stopped in the middle of a field, drew a deep breath, and said, “When I was seven, my aunt came to visit with her son. My father told me that as the daughter of the house, it was my duty to show hospitality to my guests and to be gracious to them. I wanted to make him proud. So for three weeks, I let my cousin follow me around and talk to me about spiders.”

    Summary

    Having narrowly escaped death at the hands of his own son, Tywin Lannister suddenly rouses from a coma eighteen moons later to find a world sore changed. His royal grandchildren are dead, the realm is in chaos, and his own daughter stands in the smoke and ashes on the brink of madness.

    There is no other recourse but to claim the throne by right of conquest. Tywin is now King and Protector of the Seven Kingdoms, though severely weakened and with far fewer allies.

    But now dragons roam the sky and when a wight is dragged to the centre of a brief ceasefire in Dragonpit, Tywin knows that the fate of man hangs precariously in the balance.

    To ensure a future for the living, he ventures up to tame the North and bring Death itself to heel, only to learn that mortal dangers are often found closer to home… and closest of all to his heart.


    OR

    The one where Tywin is King and shows Winterfell how to get dead-kicking shit done.

    “Why not a hook, though?” Brienne said, and Jaime followed her gaze to the golden hand covering his stump. He paused, and she added, “It’s pretty, but it’s not much use, is it?"

    Summary

    1838: William 'Little Will' Laurence never wanted to be an aviator, for all the love of dragons. His brother Horatio would be Temeraire’s second captain, and he a naturalist like Sir Edward Howe, no matter his father’s disapproval. But best laid plans go awry when Horatio is demoted following a duel and Ning strikes a disastrous bargain with the East India Company selling opium in China. So Little Will must find his feet in a hundred-day race to China and back, and not lose a wager that could cost his brother’s post, Temeraire’s fortune, and his family’s honour.
