They have went away from the books pretty far. The dragons never got kidnapped in the books and they have killed people off that are still alive in the last book so I hope for the sake of the starks they go away from the books I hated the last 2 books if your a fan of the starks you will.

Starks ladies are stupid, look at the elder lady stark giving up Jamie thinking her daughters are well by just believing little fingers lies. Look at the lady stark in King's landing swearing a loyalty oarth to bastard Jeff, my ass. I like the betrayals and the backstabings though.
