A Dance with Dragons Summary
The story begins with Victarion Greyjoy, Lord Captain of the Iron Fleet, sailing to Meereen to marry Daenerys Targaryen and bring her back to the Iron Islands. On the way, his fleet is attacked by a dragon, which kills many of his men. Victarion’s ships are forced to land at Meereen, where he is met by Daenerys’ envoy, Tyrion Lannister. Tyrion convinces Victarion to lead the Iron Fleet in an attack on Volantis, one of the Free Cities, in order to draw Daenerys out of Meereen.
In Meereen, Daenerys is struggling to maintain control of the city in the face of a rebellion. She receives news that her dragons have been killing people, and she decides to lock them up. This enrages her remaining dragon, Drogon, who flies away. Daenerys goes after him and is saved from certain death by some nomadic Dothraki. They take her back to their camp, where she is made a slave.
In the end, Daenerys is pregnant with Drogo’s child, and she is starting to learn the Dothraki language. Victarion’s fleet arrives at Volantis, and he begins his attack. Tyrion is captured by the Volantene forces, but he is rescued by a stranger who turns out to be Jorah Mormont.
