Fire & Blood: 300 Years Before A Game of Thrones (A Targaryen History) (A Song of Ice and Fire)
by George R. R. Martin, Doug Wheatley

Requirements: .ePUB Reader | US Edition

Overview: 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 and featuring more than eighty all-new black-and-white
illustrations by artist Doug Wheatley. 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.
