5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

If you are a serious fan of the books then you must get this book. It is puts the entire world created by George R R Martin into a grand mythological context. It is a mix of history, myth and legend. A definite must have.

"Perfect for GOT geeks"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

A fantastic collation of the bits of ASOIAF history we have gleaned from the books, and a whole bunch of new stuff, along with a review of the geography of Westeros. The nature of the book means that it is centred on the Targaryen dynasty and “modern” Westeros (originally begun during the reign of Robert Baratheon, it is completed under Tommen), so it does have a number of blind spots; I’d have liked to see more about the origins of the Wall and the Nights Watch, for example, and the Faceless Men are only mentioned in passing. The Dothraki get a small mention, but there is a lot on the Free Cities as they’re much closer. Very entertaining read, especially the history of the Targaryen kings.



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. García, Jr., and Linda Antonsson, the founders of the renowned fan site—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.
