I have no doubt not all my favorite characters will survive, but hopefully a couple of Starks will and will kick some ass! Arya and Jon are my preference, so Sansa and Rickon will probably be the ones. Not sure how the heck Bran will play into it.
A Time For Wolves is a better title on paper, I think. Of course, I won't know for sure until I've read the book.
I imagine Arya will live. I'm just not sure what role she'll play in the grand scheme. And I'm not sure her family will know that she survived. I'm so curious to see where she goes.
Rickon is such a wildcard. Something big has to happen with him soon. Every other remaining Stark has big things going on. Rickon... I'm losing interest.
