If you know anything about George. R. R. Martin's book series A Song of Ice and Fire, or the derived HBO series Game of Thrones, you'll recognize these characters. This snippet is from the end of one of the Arya chapters on Pg 566 of the paperback edition of the second book, A Clash of Kings, and takes place during Arya's time at Harrenhal.
I've read the currently existing 5 books, and this is my 2nd time through. I'm on Pg 152, but my random opening took me to Pg 566, which is only about 1/3 filled with text. The sentences immediately preceding this snippet are quite gruesome.
