They struck out north by northwest, across drylands and parched plains and pale sands toward Ghost Hill, the stronghold of House Toland, where the ship that would take them across the Sea of Dorne awaited them.  “Send a raven whenever you have news,” Prince Doran told her, “but report only what you know to be true.  We are lost in fog here, besieged by rumors, falsehoods, and traveler’s tales.  I dare not act until I know for a certainty what is happening.”       War is happening, though Arianne, and this time Dorne will not be spared.  “Doom and death are coming,” Ellaria Sand had warned them, before she took her own leave from Prince Doran.  “It is time for my little snakes to scatter, the better to survive the carnage.”  Continue reading Winds Of Winter Sample Chapter (Arianne)
