About this deal

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.

The book is in fine condition (black cloth boards with gilt lettering to spine) with no significant wear. Subterranean works with a wide range of authors, from cult favorites to some of the bestselling and most acclaimed authors in the world. The parallels to the War of the Roses and politics are probably the best thing about them, as I found the writing subpar, and it appears to degrade as the books go on. For a bit of comparison, I finished reading The Crippled God (385k words) in four days and Oathbringer (450k words) in six days.Other works set in or about Westeros include The World of Ice and Fire, and A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms. Básicamente, esto es lo que sería un libro de historia si un historiador resulta es un escritor soberbio.

I mean it, the cover art of both editions is stunning, the typography inside the book is beautiful, the font used (Centaur) was easy to read, and most of all, Doug Wheatley’s artworks were simply spectacular to look at. To access your ebook(s) after purchasing, you can download the free Glose app or read instantly on your browser by logging into Glose. Even the forest seems darker, like something is lurking and tainting the very fabric of their world. Kings and queens, knights in shining armour, jousting and swordplay, men with longbows and crossbows.All of the books have maintained a shameful tradition of omission and this one is the same; there are no maps included. These are but a few of the questions answered in this essential chronicle, as related by a learned maester of the Citadel and featuring more than eighty all-new black-and-white illustrations by artist Doug Wheatley.

I found myself becoming deeply emotionally invested in the Targaryens, thrilling when they achieved great victories and lamenting when they succumbed to their more idiotic desires. Sometimes we are told how different "historians" relate a story differently and I felt this just clogged things up. Remember, there are close to zero emotions within the storytelling of this book; just like The World of Ice and Fire, this imaginary history is told entirely from the writing of an Archmaester.He enjoys his time by reading, writing, playing poker, and taking walks with his Boxer/Pit named Lucy. Quicksilver, a quarter the size of Balerion, was no match for the older, fiercer dragon, and her pale white fireballs were engulfed and washed away in great gouts of black flame. First UK edition first print hardback of FIRE AND BLOOD: A History of the Targaryen Kings from Aegon the Conqueror to Aegon III by George R.
