About this deal

All of the books have maintained a shameful tradition of omission and this one is the same; there are no maps included. I do have to say there were a couple is stories like Argon I and king Jaehaerys that were really good, and there were hints of things that have not yet been seen in the main series, as well as more of the big families of the realm and free cities. He also helped create the Wild Cards anthology series, and contributed worldbuilding for the 2022 video game Elden Ring. With all the scope and grandeur of Gibbon's The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Fire and Blood is the ultimate game of thrones, giving readers a whole new appreciation for the dynamic, often bloody, and always fascinating history of Westeros.

GRRM has chosen to use a different writing style, taking the viewpoint of a fictional historian rather than a protagonist, and the result is that it's all less of an immersive tale and more like a history textbook. He gleefully and publicly embarks on other projects, and otherwise occupies his time with such trivialities as filling his blog with updates on the New York Jets (which is a waste, by any measure), rather than devoting himself to finishing the saga of Jon Snow, Tyrion Lannister, and Daenerys Targaryen (which is going to be his legacy, or not).It took me a long time to get through this book simply, as at times, I just did not feel like reading more than a few pages at a time. So as soon as this book popped up on my radar a while back, I added it to my to-read list despite being done with the series because I was curious to read about the crazy, power-mad Targaryens and their hotbed of dragons and incest that could make even a Lanister blush. Centuries before the events of A Game of Thrones, House Targaryen – the only family of dragonlords to survive the Doom of Valyria – took up residence on Dragonstone. The Dragon is also a symbol of power, strength, and good luck for people who are worthy of it in East Asian culture. All books come with a lifetime guarantee No Coa's issued unless the book originally came with one then it will be included with the book.

The book is in a fine unclipped dust jacket which is in a removable protective sleeve and also has no wear to speak of. It's written as nonfiction, with a pretentious AF index in the front of timelines, divided into tedious accounts of marriages and battles. It is NOT a novel, as I stated in my disclaimer at the top - at least, not a novel in the traditional sense.

These are but a few of the questions answered in this essential chronicle, as related by a learned maester of the Citadel and featuring more than eighty all-new black-and-white illustrations by artist Doug Wheatley. Entertainment Weekly Centuries before the events of A Game of Thrones, House Targaryen the only family of dragonlords to survive the Doom of Valyria took up residence on Dragonstone.
