Centuries before the events of Game of Thrones, House Targaryens, the only Dragonlord family to survive the Curse of Valyria, settled on Dragonstone. Fire & Blood begins its story with the legendary Aegon the Conqueror, creator of the Iron Throne, and continues to tell the generations of Targaryens who fought for this iconic seat, culminating in the civil war that almost tore their dynasty apart. .
What happened during the Dance of the Dragons? Why was visiting Valyria so deadly after Doom? What were Maegor the Cruel’s worst crimes? What was it like when dragons ruled the Westeros skies?
These are just some of the questions answered in this important chronicle, narrated by a learned citadel maester and illustrated with over eighty black and white illustrations by artist Doug Wheatley. Readers have glimpsed glimpses of this narrative in books such as The World of Ice And Fire, but now, for the first time, the full history of Targaryen 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 first volume in the definitive two-part history of the Targaryens, and instills in readers a new appreciation for the dynamic, often gory. , and always fascinating history of Westeros.

J.R.R. Tolkien worked on his mythology for most of his adult life, from the trenches of World War I to his death. He mostly thought it couldn’t be published. He was interested in the great stories, the great sagas, the stories that weren’t written as modern novels but as texts that could have jumped right out of the world he was creating. Some of Tolkien’s mythological material became The Lord of the Rings. A lot of it doesn’t.
He wanted to publish the stories, the Silmarillion saga, along with the books we all know today, but publishers kept turning him down. He died without seeing this work published, and when his son Christopher tried to make a coherent text out of the vast body of material, much of it was bastardized. It was only later that Christopher edited and published more than a dozen volumes of original texts, giving us a little more of the story’s scope than Tolkien had imagined.
Why am I even telling you this about Tolkien in a review for GRR Martin? That should seem pretty obvious by now: GRR Martin has the same longing as Tolkien. He shares the same love for the great and stirring historical epic. So far he has given us his “Lord of the Rings,” his drama of trifles, but in doing so he has been drawn into the great and glorious visions of the Targaryens, just as Tolkien was drawn into the glory of the Targaryens. First Age. It is no mistake that this book is called “GRRMillion”.
Martin’s popularity gives him an opportunity Tolkien sadly never had in his life: to COMPLETELY create his myth. To give us the great variety of things in the big world, beyond the characters we know and love in A Song of Ice and Fire.
Instead of complaining about what it says it is, accept this book for what it is. And what is it exactly? An artifact from Westeros. It should not be read as a book written by Martin, but as one transcribed from Archmaester Gyldayn’s original text. It requires little bit work on the part of the reader. The lines have been drawn and we are asked to fill in the colors with our imagination. This participatory reading can make the story so compelling: it takes work, but the work is worth it.
We have two choices: We can grab the next GoT book and complain that the author hasn’t met our requirements yet. Or we give the author the opportunity to complete his universe. For my part, that’s more exciting than the series itself. We can see the bigger picture that the whole Song of Ice and Fire is a part of. If you don’t want something like that just keep going instead of ruining the experience for others.
I remember how it felt to sit down one day as a kid and open The Silmarillion. He held the Bible of the elves. It was a piece of this world. It was a text that could have been read even by a scholar in Minas Tirith. It was magical. Martin now has the opportunity to give it to us. Imagine that you are Samwell Tarly, sitting in the Citadel Library, opening for the first time this heavy and magical tome on the history of Targaryen.
But why now? Why not wait until I’ve finished telling the main story? For my part, I’d rather follow a writer’s passion than have fans demand mediocre work. Martin created this universe for us; Follow your vision of how you should proceed. He was enmeshed in the glorious history of his universe as he told his story, and he wants us to have it in all its rich complexity. I can only wish Tolkien had had the same opportunity in his lifetime. We only see fragments of what could have been. But Martin gives us his own grand mythology in his own life, whole and complete; and I’m a child again with wonder.
