“Games of Thrones” season five won’t premiere on HBO until April 12, but in the meantime George R. R. Martin is giving fans a taste of what’s to come in Westeros.

The “Song of Ice and Fire” series author released on his website a chapter from his highly anticipated sixth book, “The Winds of Winter,” told from the perspective of Sansa Stark.

The last time Martin wrote a chapter from Stark’s point of view was in “A Feast for Crows,” the fourth novel in the series. Martin pulled a similar stunt when he released a chapter of his book online before the season four premiere of “Game of Thrones.”

The excerpt obviously contains spoilers, so GoT fans are advised to read at their own risk.
