  • Description
    What was there before the Game of Thrones? What was written? What was the history of Westeros or the Targaryen Kings? Well, look no further, because Fire and Blood has all the answers to your questions.The plot of this book plays out 300 years before A Game of Thrones (the first book in A Song of Ice and Fire series). Again, a lot of illustrations to keep readers hooked. Martin builds the history intricately, providing a well-drawn-out family tree, maps, and an unbiased method of storytelling. The prologue works in most ways, yet readers will constantly be on the lookout for Winds of Winter.Having said that, Fire and Blood is a treat for fans of George R R Martin, regardless of everything else. This somehow was most apt being released this year, given the last season of the show is out early next year. It makes for a great read and an even better prelude to the series.

The book was delivered to me early and in good condition. It's the hardcover so the reading is very comfortable. The font is good Not too big or too much small. The book is about 700 pages long. There's lot of illustrations of Targaryen kings and Dragons, and it's really amazing. The opening page of book contains wide illustrations. There's also Targar...

    Mind-blowing purchase

    An undebated and absolute 5 star book by the great George RR Martin.
    Ever since the first ASOIAF book (A Game of thrones) came out, there has been a lot of intrigue surrounding the greatest and the fiercest of the seven Royal families, the Targaryens. And this beautiful hardcover book gives a detailed, interesting account of every Targaryen-dragonriding monarch, with the most beautiful and intricate illustrations.
    Seriously the illustrations are the best I've ever seen in any novel.

    A treat for ASOIAF Fanbase!

    Basically a historical note of Targaryens from their inquisition of and arrival in westeros to their later endeavours. GRR Martin is as brilliant as always as he tries to fill up his universe more tactfully. Illustrations are not as good as The World of ice and fire but they do still hold good.
    As for the physical quality of the book it is and does feel premium from its hardcover to its pages. The font is good and doesn't strain the eyes.
    All the asoiaf bookworms should go for it unhesitati...

    Q:is it necessary to read "Song of Ice and fire" before "fire and blood"?
    A:It's not necessary but still I will recommend it since asoiaf is the actual story. And fire and blood is just a history of house targaryens. You will understand more deeply if you read asoiaf first.

    Q:This is a story or only illustration like the description of a particular targareyean?
    A:it's the ancient history of the Targaryens from aegon the conqueror. It's not a particular story about a king it's more like a history book through the writing of an arch maester of citadel.

    Q:Is this the latest one of the series, on which season 8 of GOT will be based ?
    A:Not necessarily. This is a precursor to the present series. Also the show doesn't follow the books fully, but has an independent (albeit similar) script/storyline.
