According to the writer, Mr Martin, the story arc of the Winds of Winter is going to be focusing upon the difficult and dark nature of the previous saga. Yes, there will be recurring characters from the previous books and stories. Winds of Winters may feature the known characters but it will and definitely will focus upon the Targaryens and the dark eerie prospect of the winter. “Winter is coming” was announced long back when it was all new to the world, but now it is time to celebrate the quirks of winter and its realm. George RR Martin believes that winter is actually when things turn ice cold and things die.
Some of the recurring characters are going to visit the darkest corners of their subconscious in this nest mini-saga. The book is not going to have a feel-good emotion to it at any instance, unlike the other elements. The subject of Winds of Winter is very different in mood and tone than the previous story arcs.
