Description

Tyrion, the Lannister who has ever relied on his wits and learning to survive, is represented by a lion and a book; Arya, whose story has previously been heralded by her family’s direwolf, now has a leaping cat as her identity transforms in the House of Black and White. She gave me two strong sons as well, and a daughter as sweet to look upon as any of your southron ladies. Other works set in or about Westeros include The World of Ice and Fire, and A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms.

The distance was not negligible, even flying; Her Grace landed at the Last Hearth and several smaller keeps and holdfasts on her way, to the surprise and delight of their lords, whilst a portion of her tail scrambled after her (the rest remained at Winterfell).This entire historical account is said to cover Targaryen history through the reign of Aegon V Targaryen. Packed with all-new artwork, the Targaryens-and their dragons-come vividly to life in this deluxe reference book.

The first instalment, A Game of Thrones, was published in 1996; the fourth volume ( A Feast for Crows, 2005; Folio 2021) and fifth volume ( A Dance with Dragons, 2011; Folio 2022) earned Martin best-seller status. The reigns of Aegon I's sons, King Aenys I Targaryen and King Maegor I Targaryen, ending with Maegor's death and the ascension of Aenys's son Jaehaerys I Targaryen to the throne. To the contrary, to quote Laura Miller’s 2011 New Yorker profile, “[he] sometimes fleshes out only as much of his imaginary world as he needs to make a workable setting for the story. The parts that truly focused on the Targaryens were great, but irrelevancy aside, my problem with this book is that the history tends to focus its narrative for a long period of time on other non-Targaryen characters; which frankly speaking by tomorrow I’ll forget already because I simply don’t give a damn about them. 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.The Dance of the Dragons part in The World of Ice and Fire was too short to make me care, but here it was awesome to see the deaths of each dragon in detail. To help keep track of the intricate plotlines, this edition comes complete with updated and expanded genealogies.
