♦ He hasn’t finished the latest Game of Thrones book but his publisher has just announced that George RR Martin has written a new book set in the world of Westeros, illustrated by Doug Wheatley. Here’s some details…
Set three-hundred years before the events in A Song of Ice and Fire, Fire And Blood, the first of two planned volumes, is the definitive history of the Targaryens in Westeros 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. Readers may have glimpsed small parts of this narrative before, in The World of Ice and Fire and various anthologies, but the full tapestry of Martin’s history of the Targaryens is revealed here for the first time. Lavishly illustrated with over 75 all-new black and white portraits and scenes by artist Doug Wheatley, FIRE AND BLOOD will give readers a whole new appreciation for the fascinating history of Westeros and will be a must-have addition to every fan’s bookshelf.
The book will be released on 20 November from HarperCollins
