Deși inițial “A Song of Ice and Fire” trebuia să fie o trilogie, mai târziu Martin a hotărât că seria va avea cel puțin șapte cărti. “The tale grew in the telling” spune el adesea, citându-l pe J. R. R. Tolkien.

În septembrie 2006 cartea a fost nominalizată  atât pentru Premiile Quill, cât și pentru Premiile British Fantasy.

HBO Production a achiziționat drepturile pentru întreaga serie “A Song of Ice and Fire în 2007. Primul sezon “Game of Thrones” a început pe 17 aprilie 2011 se bazează pe primul roman al seriei. La două zile de la premieră, episoadele au primit  aprecieri pozitive și au înregistrat o audiență de 4.2 milioane pentru primele  trei difuzări, iar HBO a comandat deja a doua serie, ce se difuzează în această perioadă și la noi.
