Description

The second half of the book is about the Dance of the Dragons, narrating in seven chapters the entirety of the civil war over succession between Princess Rhaenyra and Aegon II, the children of Viserys I by his two different queens. I know over half of the fandom is throwing a hissy fit over the fact that George decided to release Fire and Blood instead of working on/releasing Winds of Winter; but let's simply disregard these entitled fools with the wise words of Neil Gaiman: "George R. Martin, however, has stated that his manuscript for Fire and Blood was closer to a thousand pages, so I’m guessing there’s a lot of new material, even for people who read everything he produces). The inspiration for HBO and Sky Atlantic's House of the Dragon Centuries before A Game of Thrones, an even greater game began, one that set the skies alight with dragon flame and saw the Seven Kingdoms turned to ash.

Family tree, about the author, about the illustrator at the rear unpaginated, A fine copy in fine dustjacket.

of the ones I glanced at were fans literally fighting with each other over how entitled they are to take the piss out of George R. I won’t deny Martin’s importance as a role model for modern fantasy, it would be idiotic for me to deny that; a myriad of incredible epic fantasy books appeared because of his influences. 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. On a cold winter’s day, shortly after the Argonauts had set up their winter camp, the Greeks heard a terrible shrieking and saw the shadow of a giant flying beast rise from the waters next to their new home. To the contrary, one of the reasons I started A Game of Thrones, despite a fantasy aversion, was the promise that it was gritty and realistic, with the fantastical elements backgrounded.

Communication was excellent I had some questions because I was unable to track the package until it hit US soil. For a fantasy series that really doesn't have that much magic in it, this was a huge draw for me, a fan of the OG swords and sorcery brand of fantasy.Not only is the writing dry and rather just barely adequate but the worldbuilding is also lazy, all lifted from English (and European) history and reworked in such recognisable ways that it's hard not to see it as merely changing names and adding dragons. Within these pages, there is a book-within-a-book that Archmaester Gyldayn frequently consults as a reference. It reminds me that I’m not keen on the Middle Ages really, and as a republican I’m not a big fan of kings and queens. This part is also already old news and lacking in novelty, it can be found in the encyclopedia as well as the novellas "The Princess and the Queen" and "The Rogue Prince.

If you like A Song of Ice and Fire – and I’m talking about the novels rather than the TV series – and you want to learn more about the history of Westeros, you’ll love this book. If you have previously read George R R Martins series a song of ice and fire, be warned, this book is not like those. First UK edition first print hardback of FIRE AND BLOOD: A History of the Targaryen Kings from Aegon the Conqueror to Aegon III by George R. Martin can be a fantastic plotter, setting up glorious long-games, layering twists upon turns, and dropping some of the most gut-wrenching set pieces in literature. Muchos siglos antes de que tuvieran lugar los acontecimientos que se relatan en Canción de Hielo y Fuego, la Casa Targaryen, fue la única dinastía de señores dragón que sobrevivió a la Maldición de Valyria, asentándose en la isla de Rocadragón.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. What I mean is that the ostensible narrator is not an omniscient GRR Martin but a master writing several centuries after the event and relying on several contemporary sources of dubious accuracy. With some exceptions that I will not spoil (since A Song of Ice and Fire is ground-zero of the Spoiler Wars), Fire and Blood does nothing to enrich A Song of Ice and Fire and refuses to be enriched in turn.
