Critic reviews for Oathkeeper

Between Jon and Bran, Craster?s Keep?aka, where Gilly and her non-zombified Ice Baby are from?is the new hot spot for unwanted Stark children. (Not including: Rickon, Arya and Sansa?Jeez, there are a bunch of Stark kids left, when you think about it!)

Hectic pace, too many characters and storylines per usual, but a well drawn roundup to build tension and push ahead.
