‘Game of Thrones’ Author George R. R. Martin Releases Excerpt From ‘The Winds of Winter’

“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.
