30 Day Challenge - Day 27

Day 27 - The most surprising plot twist or ending.

This is EASY! I wonder how many fantasy readers will say this?

It HAS to be The Red Wedding in George R. R. Martin's A Storm of Swords in the Song of Ice and Fire series. It was when I finally lost my reader's innocence and realised that authors can really do ANYTHING they want and nothing is safe. I remember screaming at the book - yes, me, a grown woman in her forties yelling at a book. I read the passages at least 3 times because I couldn't believe my eyes. And then I wept. Angry tears. I was FURIOUS. Had George Martin been in front of me, I think I would have beaten the crap out of him.

Yeah... The Red Wedding. Kudos to Mr. Martin. He is a master.
