Game of Thrones: FIRST LOOK inside NEW George RR Martin book amid wait for Winds Of Winter
Next month the author will release Fire and Blood as a companion to the A Song of Ice and Fire series.
Though it is not a novel – and is certainly not the long-awaited The Winds of Winter – it has proven to be more than enough to get fans excited.
The publication’s listing on Amazon has revealed some interesting looks at pages inside, including a detailed illustration.
Twitter account @BryndenBFish shared it, writing: “New image from FIRE AND BLOOD, VOLUME ONE of Jaehaerys and Alysanne.
“And as a bonus, some text on the left side. Sounds like stuff about the construction of the kingsroad and Alysanne’s anger at Jaehaerys for something.”
Another image, which can be viewed on Amazon, shows the Targaryen family tree.
The hardcover book, subtitled 300 Years Before A Game Of Thrones, is due out on November 20.
The inside flap reads: “Set 300 years before the events in A Song of Ice and Fire, Fire and Blood is the definitive history of the Targaryens in Westeros as told by Archmaester Gyldayn, and chronicles the conquest that united the Seven Kingdoms under Targaryen rule through the Dance of the Dragons: the Targaryen civil war that nearly ended their dynasty forever.
“The thrilling history of the Targaryens comes to life in this masterly work by the author of A Song of Ice and Fire, the inspiration for HBO’s Game of Thrones.
“With all the fire and fury fans have come to expect from internationally best-selling author George RR Martin, this is the first volume of the definitive two-part history of the Targaryens in Westeros.”
It adds: “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.
“Fire and Blood begins their tale with the legendary Aegon the Conqueror, creator of the Iron Throne, and goes on to recount the generations of Targaryens who fought to hold that iconic seat, all the way up to the civil war that nearly tore their dynasty apart.
“What really happened during the Dance of the Dragons? Why did it become so deadly to visit Valyria after the Doom? What is the origin of Daenerys’s three dragon eggs?
“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.
“Readers have glimpsed small parts of this narrative in such volumes as The World of Ice & Fire but now, for the first time, the full tapestry of Targaryen history is revealed.
“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.”
Fire and Blood by George RR Martin is out on November 20.
