The Song of Ice and Fire continues, and we sing along - this time, it's part 1 of A Clash of Kings. We read the book in 10 TV-show sized chunks as we catch up with the series in time to blog along with season 4. The first book saw us gallop all over the land of Westeros, and for the second book, everything is bigger. The battles. The egos. The dragons. As ever, we're asking the questions no-one else dares to ask, up to and including the possibility of an odd-couple comedy featuring Ser Alliser Thorne and a zombie hand. You heard it here first. You can join us on our epic journey, too - email us on email@example.com, or tweet us: @sharkliveroil.
