Why This Must Be Read: This is a retelling of asoiaf with HDM daemons that continues beyond the books, focusing on Sansa. You don't need to know the His Dark Materials fandom other than what a daemon is, but it's spoilery for all the asoiaf books. It's beautiful and digs deep into Sansa's survival instincts and lets her deal with her trauma in her own time. The romance between her and Willas is beautifully written and a slow build.

Elorian understands before Sansa does, which is probably why he changes to a tiny little field mouse and scampers up her sleeve, so he can’t be taken away from her when she begins to rage and scream as Ice descends and Mafanwye fades in a brilliant starburst of golden dust.
