VoK 549: Words Cut Deeper than Swords (Ice & Fire Con Panel)



In their first ever panel at Ice & Fire Con, the Vassals of Kingsgrave rank their favourite passages from A Song of Ice and Fire. Join Duncan (Valkyrist), Casey (blue-eyed-queen) and Dan (Witless Chum) as they reflect on some of the most powerful moments of Martin’s dialogue and examine the meaning behind his prose – from Sansa’s twilit snow castle, to Dany’s desert hallucinations, to Catelyn’s fevered flight from Storm’s End.
