It was brilliant until the last chapter. the last few pages though, killed the mood.
The idea of the wintry child as main character was magnificent but as Adara loses her own "magic" I lost my interest. I can't get over the fact that as she becomes ordinary, she get to be loved.
That Westeros-kind-of-setting and that
Khaleesi-kind-of-character really struck me and absorbed me.
On the other hand, the illustrations are incredibly well done, the details are fantastic. I actually took a look at every detail and I kept going back and forth to look at them again

Now don't get me wrong, it is a good story. But I wasn't looking for a short story, I was looking for a novel. I have now paid hardcover novel price for a short story. To finish this sad tale, this wasn't even a NEW story by GRRM!! I already had it, in a short story collection about dragons called Dragons of Light that came out in the 1980s.
So. Cute preteen short story with a dragon. If that's what you are looking for, you will be thrilled.
I have been aware of The Ice Dragon for some time and, though I am enduring my Westerosi withdrawals with as much grace as I can muster, I had not gotten around to reading or purchasing The Ice Dragon until now. Primarily because I, by no means, expected this story to be akin to the much-anticipated Winds of Winter. Also, I simply have higher expectations when purchasing an illustrated book, be it for children (though there has been some debate as to whether this is or is not a "children's story") or adults. When a book comes illustrated, the greater part of the reader's imagination retires throughout the reading experience and I honestly did not like Yvonne Gilbert's artwork in the previous edition of The Ice Dragon. This is not to say that Gilbert is not a fine artist. Her work simply did not align with my imaginings of Martin's world(s) and so I sadly put off The Ice Dragon with hopes that some day the proper stars would align and I would find myself reading it then.
So, when I heard the news that The Ice Dragon was to be re-released with new artwork drawn by my number one favorite artist, Luis Royo, I immediately pre-ordered the book. The stars had aligned in my favor and then some!
I was not disappointed. Royo's art for The Ice Dragon is snowy perfection and managed to somehow exceed my extremely high expectations. Each illustration is beautiful, summoning Martin's words with a lovely combination of subtlety and daring. I was able to surrender the eyes of my imagination easily. I found Martin's story to be interesting and unique and I enjoyed the intimate fireside flow of The Ice Dragon. As I read, I felt like a Stark child listening to one of Old Nan's tales. I won't give away any spoilers but, for me, the ending was typically Martinesque and left me conflicted. As a "Winter Child" myself I wanted things to end differently for Adara and her dragon. I did not find the ending to be rushed or incomplete as some other reviewers have. I only found it to be bittersweet.
As I finished this story, I was left with a distinct feeling that I have encountered only once before, every time I watch The Labyrinth and am angry with Sarah for leaving Jareth behind in favor of bringing Toby home to her mundane life in a world devoid of fantasy and magic.
I would recommend The Ice Dragon to all fans of A Song of Ice and Fire. It is rife with foreshadowing and hints of what Martin has created in his epic fantasy series can be found throughout. I would not be the least bit surprised to find ice dragons soaring through the skies beyond the Wall and, perhaps, even crossing it in the novels yet to come.
I don't want to spoil anything so I will try to keep this vague - there are descriptions and illustrations of burn victims and wounded soldiers that were beyond what I felt was appropriate for my child.
But I loved reading the story myself!
