A Dance with Dragons
Soren Shieldbreaker is among the wildling leaders who accompany Tormund Giantsbane to the Wall in declaring a truce with the Night's Watch. His son, a tall lad, is made a hostage of the Night's Watch to guarantee the peace between the wildlings and the Watch.
Soren is given the abandoned castle Stonedoor by Jon Snow, the new Lord Commander of the Night's Watch, to garrison and settle his own people. He is present in the Shieldhall when Jon announces the letter purportedly from Ramsay Bolton entitled 'Bastard', and he stands when Jon asks for volunteers.
