Dangerous Women

DK Ellis

I belatedly (but still in the timeframe!) give you Martin Monday.


Today I finally got my hands on the Dangerous Women anthology of short stories, edited by the GRRM Reaper and Gardner Dozois.


I promptly read George’s piece, The Princess and the Queen, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The Dance of Dragons was a brilliantly bloody tale of a brother and a sister’s claims to the Iron Throne. SOOOOO many people died by the end of that novella. And the war isn’t even finished yet.

I especially loved the different kinds of women George brought to the table. Of course, being entitled Dangerous Women, we would expect…well…dangerous women. And boy, did we get a few. Princess/Queen Rhaenyra was particularly interesting, opening with quite a horrible blow to her life and culminating in her inevitable fate. Queen Alicent, formerly Hightower, was a much nicer Queen Dowager than Cersei.
