In the aftermath of a colossal battle, the future of the Seven Kingdoms hangs in the balance --- beset by newly emerging threats from every direction. In the east, Daenerys Targaryen, the last scion of House Targaryen, rules with her three dragons as queen of a city built on dust and death. But Daenerys has thousands of enemies, and many have set out to find her. As they gather, one young man embarks upon his own quest for the queen, with an entirely different goal in mind. A DANCE WITH DRAGONS is the fifth installment in George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series.

Tracy Chevalier, author of The Last Runaway

Honor Bright is a modest English Quaker who moves to Ohio in 1850. Sick from the journey and forced by family tragedy to immediately rely on help from strangers, Honor realizes that in a country that still allows slavery, principles count for little. When drawn into helping with the Underground Railroad, she finally finds her principles put to use.
