Ev's 30 Day Book Challenge - Day 27

A Storm of Swords (A Song of Ice and Fire, #3) - George R.R. Martin

 

Day 27 - The most surprising plot twist or ending.

 

This is EASY!  I wonder how many fantasy readers will say this?  

 

It HAS to be The Red Wedding in George R. R. Martin's A Storm of Swords in the Song of Ice and Fire series.  It was when I finally lost my reader's innocence and realised that authors can really do ANYTHING they want and nothing is safe.  I remember screaming at the book - yes, me, a grown worman in her forties yelling at a book.  I read the passages at least 3 times because I couldn't believe my eyes.  And then I wept.  Angry tears.  I was FURIOUS.  Had George Martin been in front of me, I think I would have beaten the crap out of him.  

 

Yeah... The Red Wedding.   Kudos to Mr. Martin.  He is a master.
