George R.R. Martin is still at work on his latest book The Winds of Winter. He showed a sample of his progress yesterday in an excerpt on his website.
The passage is from the eyes of Sansa Stark, titled “Alayne,” begins —
She was reading her little lord a tale of the Winged Knight when Mya Stone came knocking on the door of his bedchamber, clad in boots and riding leathers and smelling strongly of the stable. Mya had straw in her hair and a scowl on her face. That scowl comes of having Mychel Redfort near, Alayne knew.
The chapter was shared just ahead of the April 12 premiere of Game of Thrones season 5 on HBO, but the two are not linked.
