Well, after reading a Song of Ice and Fire, I mainly felt... disappointed. I only finished three out of the series, and then, I just couldn't STAND the writing style anymore. Namely, the lack of any momentum as any energy gained is immediately lost because the plot has to stop to catch up the other characters. This is a shame, because otherwise, I really did like the darker elements that really made the world much more appealing to me a genre I usually hate, fantasy. So, are there are other Dark Fantasy titles you guys would suggest? Because, I really did like A Song of Ice and Fire, just a shame with the whole momentum issue.
