"NEW YORK TIMES "BESTSELLER THE NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN HISTORY OF WESTEROS AND THE LANDS BEYOND WITH HUNDREDS OF PAGES OF ALL-NEW MATERIAL FROM GEORGE R. R. MARTIN If the past is prologue, then George R. R. Martin s masterwork the most inventive and entertaining fantasy saga of our time warrants one hell of an introduction. At long last, it has arrived with ""The World of Ice & Fire"." This lavishly illustrated volume is" "a comprehensive history of the Seven Kingdoms, providing vividly constructed accounts of the epic battles, bitter rivalries, and daring rebellions that lead to the events of A Song of Ice and Fire and HBO s "Game of Thrones." In a collaboration that s been years in the making, Martin has teamed with Elio M. Garcia, Jr., and Linda Antonsson, the founders of the renowned fan site Westeros.org perhaps the only people who know this world almost as well as its visionary creator. Collected here is all the accumulated knowledge, scholarly speculation, and inherited folk tales of maesters and septons, maegi and singers, including full-color artwork and maps, with more than 170 original pieces full family trees for Houses Stark, Lannister, and Targaryen in-depth explorations of the history and culture of Westeros 100% all-new material, more than half of which Martin wrote specifically for this book The definitive companion piece to George R. R. Martin s dazzlingly conceived universe, ""The World of Ice & Fire""is indeed proof that the pen is mightier than a storm of swords."

I am in such awe of George R. R. Martin because can create a whole different world with its own history and lore. It‘s basically a history book so it can come off as dry to some readers. The book covers every event in Westeros history including information about lands beyond Westeros. The illustrations were stunning and my favorite part of the book.

Deep fried turkey was a huge hit! The last of the family have gone...a bit of cleaning up to do then nothing but reading and cold turkey sandwiches on the agenda for the next 3 days! I love Christmas, but for us it falls into two distinct halves...first half is crazy full on, second half is mellow. I look forward to that bit!

#WinterWonderland Day 12: A veritable #FireAndIce, think of this as a historical tome of a book exploring the many lands and characters in Westeros and beyond. One of those chunksters that I did manage to finish reading - mainly because of the exquisite art found inside. Add the fact that I am an unapologetic GoT fan.

Cinfhen Have a feeling this is going to be VERY popular today 💜 12mo

I thoroughly enjoyed the depth and character this book brings to the already complex world of Westeros and Essos. It provides background and context to areas that have yet to be touched by the narrative of A Song of Fire and Ice. I am continually amazed at the worlds that fantasy writers bring to life! I just wish The Winds of Winter would be released already. Am I right?

GypsyKat @kylienoele I really do think I'm going to read them before the next one comes out, I've been holding off, but I'll probably cave. 😆 2y

Picked this up at the library and the illustrations are glorious. But when I started to go through it, I found that the history was fascinating. A great book if you want to know everything from the prehistory of westeros and the beings that inhabited the world from its inception to the background of all the tribes and the evolution of the kingdom. Highly recommend to all GoT fans of both the books and the series.

Finally done reading this one! So much information that was really fascinating about Westeros and beyond (like, who knew Sothoryos was a thing?). My one wish was that there were more maps, especially in the sections on Essos, so I could reference where all these places were in relation to one another.

One of the prettiest books I have ever owned. I have a love for encyclopedia like books because of the history. I grew up with history and encyclopedia books before I started reading fiction.

Even though everything in this is fiction but it is still history lol. A fictional history but I still consider it lol.

#LyricalApril #day17 #Maps This book has the most beautifully drawn maps. I love when a series that is so loved publishes extra books with maps, history & background of the world they've written about and you've only ever seen inside your own imagination. Fleshes it out, so to speak.

OSChamberlain Trust me, this is not a book you want to speed through. I spent almost 2 months on this one. The history is rich and you could stare at the illustrations for hours! I get the feeling you'll definitely have to renew the check out 😂 3y

I like it when authors keep a bit of mystery, but I hope that Martin will also finish not only book 6 & 7, but also the planned novella about the Dance of the Dragons. I would love to see how the Tagaryens interacted with their dragons before they died out. #photoadaynov16 #herebedragons
