NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • THE NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN HISTORY OF WESTEROS AND THE LANDS BEYOND • WITH HUNDREDS OF PAGES OF ALL-NEW MATERIAL FROM GEORGE R. R. MARTIN

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 Westeros.org—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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Imagination Love this for the pure breadth of the imagination involved! So much depth and realism in the fantasy! I read all the books as a glimpse into the brain of an amazingly intelligent and creative student of literature and history. Great for fans of ASOIF.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant! I got this book when It came out and I must say its amazing for any Game of Thrones or A Song Of Ice And Fire fan, The ilustrations are very detailed for example Aegon riding Balerion. I don't want to spoil anything but the way the book is played out is very good since it starts with the ancient history and Targaryens and all the other houses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! So I pre-ordered this about a month ago, it was released on Tuesday and it was delivered on Tuesday. It is truly amazing. The artwork is gorgeous, the detail is really impressive, and the family tree's are really cool. It basically has a history to just about anyone and anything mentioned in the books. I honestly recommend this to any fan of the books, or the show.
