To begin, understand that "A Dance with Dragons" is the 5th book in the series. There is much confusion about this book release. In the U.K., publishers divided the book into two parts to make it easier to read due to the length of the book. In the U.S., most of the publishers released it as one book. So, when you see Part 1 and Part 2, these are not different books with different information. You can read it all in one book, or read parts 1 and 2 and get the same story. That being said, also make sure to read the page from the author regarding the chronology of the book. Basically, this book is written to back-fill information and stories from book 4, "A Feast for Crows." And Martin explains this at the beginning of the book. If you read this book without first understanding the chronology, you may be lost. I have really loved this fantasy world and I cannot wait until this Fall when the 6th book, "The Winds of Winter" is supposed to be released. Martin is not sure when the series will end and how many books will be written to complete the story. I've heard anywhere from 6-8 books may comprise the series. It does not appear as though the 6th book will end the series though. So, I think we can count on at least one more; but I suspect there will be another after that.

Fans, beware. This is not new material. It's already part of the Kindle version of A Dance With Dragons. I really don't know why they had to split up the book now.

Pay no attention to the negative reviews. This book along with its partner are identical to A Dance with Dragons in hardback. For those bemoaning the fact it has been split into 2 volumes, I ask a simple question - How do you turn a 1040 page hardback into one paperback that is readable and durable? You can't, it takes 2 volumes. The books are great ... HBO's series is remaining faithful to them. If you don't already own the hardback, buy these with confidence that you are getting the continuation of the series. As for the series, it is fantastic. I am in the process of rereading the entire series and can't believe the details I missed with the first reading!! If you want paperback editions, buy these and enjoy, you won't be disappointed

This clearly states part 2...therefore if you have bought part 1 soft cover this is new, if you bought hardcover, this is old...stop leaving poor reviews because of your inadequate reading skills. Overall this book is just as good as the others and I enjoyed it and can't wait for the next.

Also no need to hate on this review if you gave it one star and ranted, since I don't care anyway and you probably didn't read this to its full extent anyway.

Unlike many people I actually read the symopsis and realised that this is the second half to the paperback version of the hardback of the same title. The book is brilliant but if you already own the hardback don't purchase because it isn't new material. And for all other reviewers I can't understand why 2 mins research wasn't done when the title is EXACTLY the same as the hardback. Highly recommend this book.

Seems I am another one who pre-ordered this book thinking it was new material and the continuation of the series. Turns out this was wrong and this has already been part of an earlier published version which I've read, of course. I want my money back!

I am gutted - thought this was an extra volume to the Dance of Dragons based on the title and description but it isn't! A waste of money as the chapters in here were already in Dance of Dragons. Very misleading and I am trying to find out if I can get a refund!

Chapter after chapter in part 2 of a dance with dragons was taken directly out of part 1 of a dance with dragons. Essentially nothing more then a direct repeat of the last half of part 1. The cost of buying part 2 was a complete waste of the money it cost.
