Gods Eye river
The Gods Eye river is a river in the southern riverlands and western crownlands. Beginning at the great lake called the Gods Eye, it flows south to the Blackwater Rush. The river's name is not published in A Clash of Kings.
Although not as well made as the kingsroad, a reliable track runs along the eastern shore of the river to an unnamed town near the river's source at the Gods Eye. Cottages, cabins, and farms are also in the vicinity.
A Clash of Kings
Yoren leads his group of recruits for the Night's Watch, including Arya Stark. He hopes to travel west of the Gods Eye to avoid traffic on the kingsroad. Their route west is blocked by the river, however, and Woth reports that a wooden bridge has been burned up. Yoren instead leads them north to the unnamed town.
The river was a blue-green ribbon shining in the morning sun. Reeds grew thick in the shallows along the banks, and Arya saw a water snake skimming across the surface, ripples spreading out behind it as it went. Overhead a hawk flew in lazy circles.
