#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The thrilling history of the Targaryens comes to life in this masterly work, the inspiration for HBO's upcoming Game of Thrones prequel series House of the Dragon

"The thrill of Fire & Blood is the thrill of all Martin's fantasy work: familiar myths debunked, the whole trope table flipped."-Entertainment Weekly

Centuries before the events of A Game of Thrones, House Targaryen-the only family of dragonlords to survive the Doom of Valyria-took up residence on Dragonstone. Fire & Blood begins their tale with the legendary Aegon the Conqueror, creator of the Iron Throne, and goes on to recount the generations of Targaryens who fought to hold that iconic seat, all the way up to the civil war that nearly tore their dynasty apart.

What really happened during the Dance of the Dragons? Why was it so deadly to visit Valyria after the Doom? What were Maegor the Cruel's worst crimes? What was it like in Westeros when dragons ruled the skies? These are but a few of the questions answered in this essential chronicle, as related by a learned maester of the Citadel. Readers have glimpsed small parts of this narrative in such volumes as The World of Ice & Fire, but now, for the first time, the full tapestry of Targaryen history is revealed.

With all the scope and grandeur of Gibbon's The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Fire & Blood is the the first volume of the definitive two-part history of the Targaryens, giving readers a whole new appreciation for the dynamic, often bloody, and always fascinating history of Westeros.

Praise for Fire & Blood

"A masterpiece of popular historical fiction."-The Sunday Times

"The saga is a rich and dark one, full of both the title's promised elements. . . . It's hard not to thrill to the descriptions of dragons engaging in airborne combat, or the dilemma of whether defeated rulers should 'bend the knee,' 'take the black' and join the Night's Watch, or simply meet an inventive and horrible end."-The Guardian

Am rasfoit editia in limba roamana a cartii si am comandat-o pe cea in engleza, in mare parte datorita pretului mai mic si a ilustratiilor noi.Nu este Winds of Winter dar este must read pentru fanii Lumii de Gheata si Foc.Acum sase ani, cind am inceput sa citesc seria am devenit pe loc fan- si serialul merita vazut, insa cartile ofera profunzimea necesara pentru cine vrea sa stie mai multe.Este si cazul acestei carti: demult voiam sa aflu povestile casei Targaryen, a regilor si intrigilor de la curte si la felul in care a fost cucerit si carmuit Westeros. Cinci stele, pentru ca povestea conteaza cel mai mult si in cele din urma si scriitorii tot oameni sunt si actul creatiei necesita timp.

First of all, the artwork in this book is truly stunning. It's one of the most georgous books I own. And since I'm a pretty big ASOIAF fangirl my opinion on this book is pretty biased, I really liked it. I love the Targaryens and their dragons and a whole book on their family history is a must read for me. This book is pretty much written like a history book (big surprise since it's a history book). And since we largely knew before what distinguished the individual Targaryen kings, there were no big twists or lots of tension included. But I still loved it! I really like GRRM's discribtive writing style and his way to bring this world to life. I loved to learn more about my favorite house of Westeros and finally see Aegon the Conqueror "on screen". I honestly can't wait for the next installment, which will probably be released in about 10 years...
