Spoilers to A Song of Fire and Ice ahead! This has to do with A Song of Fire and Ice. Don't get me wrong I love all the books in the series and I think George Martin is brilliant. I am, however, feeling increasingly apprehensive about the ending. I'm currently half way through A dance with Dragons and keep wondering...how the hell is he going to finish this series? He's introduced this MASSIVE world with 1000's of characters and arcs of the plot seem to appear constantly. I mean, we have the war in Westeros with like 10 different armies/kingdoms fighting each other. We have the white walkers, Dorne, Highgarden, Kings Landing, Stannis, the north in its separate parts etc etc. Then in Essos there's Daenerys, her nephew has suddenly appeared and all her enemies she has to deal with. So basically there's about a million possibilities of who will win what will happen etc etc. To me the scope of the world George has created seems to large to finish in 2 more books. I think to properly conclude all the parts there probably need to be another 3-5 books. I dunno, I'm probably wrong and this is all mumbo jumbo, but is there anyone else that reading the series and thinking "how the hell will he wrap up this series?"
