The current situation in ACOK right now is that the north has become a shell of its former self and is fill with death and chaos. This is making is hard for Arya Stark to make it home to Winterfell. After a large fight many of Arya's companions are dead. The ones who remain are Gendry, Lommy, Hot Pie, and Weasel. All five of them have found a town and are trying to determine if its worth the risk of going into. This is as far as I have read so far I'm excited to see what happens next in ACOK.
