Arya is in book 4 Katesmom, I peeked at the table of contents :) I'm almost to her, I also saw a chapter named Alyne ;)
Arya and Alayne both have chapters in the fourth book.
I just read Book 1 for the first time. HBO really stuck to it for the first season, but I hear not so much for the rest. Can't wait to read the rest, but I have to wait until I clean up this house! I did nothing but read this week!
It's not like they are pulling a True Blood, thank the old gods and the new! :lol
I have to apologize in advance because I don't know how to post links (despite people trying to explain it to me), but I saw that casting for the new season has begun. Specifically, the have cast Oberyn Martell (the Red Viper). His name is Pedro Pascal and he has appeared on The Good Wife and Graceland.
Saw a post on a friends page on Facebook about a give-away of books from Game of Thrones. They are calling it The Song of Ice & Fire Giveaway. I'm not a fan, so I have NO idea what that means!
