City of Thieves

The Vassals of Kingsgrave gather for the 5th meeting of the VOK Book Club.  This time around we discuss City of Thieves by David Benioff; a chilling and yet darkly humorous tale of an impossible quest in a city under siege and a partnership between polar opposites.

Join hosts Greg (claudiusthefool), Alex (Lucky Charms), Zach (Alias), Matt (Eiffel), Dan (witless chum) & Scott (Skywaltzer) as they follow Lev & Kolya through their various trials and tribulations against cannibals, partisans, Germans, cold, hunger & chickens as they attempt the impossible; to find a dozen eggs.

Edited by Greg

Be sure to vote on the forums for the next VOK Book Club pick and the new Book Roundtable discussion.

VoK 186: The World of Ice and Fire – Sothoryos & Central Essos


NaathiAndButterfly

In their second in-depth foray into the lands beyond the Sunset Kingdom, the Vassals set sail to Sothoryos and its surrounding isles, before heading north to the vast Grasslands of Essos, and then norther still to the Shivering Sea.

Join Duncan (Valkyrist), Greg (claudiusthefool), Patrick (Ser Patrick the Tall), Dan (witless chum), Augustine (linecom1), Michael (Khal Wadege) and newcomer Justin (uflGator1) as they ponder ramming techniques (naval and otherwise); butterfly napalm; early Australian settlement; the Dinopocalypse of the south; the Dothraki’s aggressive rural redevelopment program; frosty prophesies; Ibbenese wrestling moves; and the “phantom menace” that haunts Mossovy forest.

With the help of Maester Yandel, they also speculate (wildly) on the future events of the novels, and the various real-world historical allusions scattered throughout the compendium.

Warning: Contains spoilers for all published books in George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire
