Publisher's Summary

Before Westeros there was Worlorn....
When Dirk t'Larien is beckoned across space to the distant world of Worlorn by his lost love, Gwen Delvano, a wild hope flares inside him. However, the rogue planet and his long awaited reunion with Gwen are nothing like Dirk ever imagined. Gwen is radically changed from the girl Dirk first fell in love with, and appears to be irrevocably bound to a violent alien savage and his barbaric culture. Worlorn is a desolate ruin of a planet, steadily hurtling through space away from the star system it relies on to support life - each dawn its seven red suns shine a little dimmer.
Once a thriving "festival world", now Worlorn is rapidly falling into decline. Nothing remains but scavengers and their prey. With no laws to govern it, it is a place where the hunters and the hunted are often interchangeable. It is a dying world steadily speeding towards its own destruction. Can Dirk protect Gwen and save her from this decaying planet and its dangerous inhabitants? Does she even want him to try?
Discover George R. R. Martin's acclaimed debut novel Dying of the Light.

Excitingly wonderful. The characters are amazing with rich history behind them. I especially loved the conversations between Dirk and Gas Iron Jade after the outbond incident.
