Kissed By Fire…

Jon and Ygritte Kiss

I am extremely pleased with Season 3 to date.  The amount of information, character development and exposition they have to fold into this season is mind-blowing for those of us who have read the books.  There’s so much, in fact, that Season 3 , based on the third book in the series, A Storm of […]

Season Three: Relationship Building
