Yes, George R.R. Martin's A Feast for Crows is excellent. But it is one of the middle books of a series. Finishing this book reminds me why I have sworn an oath not to read any more series-in-progress: much better to wait to begin the first book of a series until you are certain that the very last book of the series has been... staked and encoffined.
