A Storm of Swords
Ryles is part of the great ranging which leaves Castle Black and the Shadow Tower in search of Benjen Stark and Mance Rayder. At some point he dies and is turned into a wight. His body attacks Gilly and Samwell Tarly at an abandoned wildling village, and they only escape with the help of Coldhands.
