The never-before-seen history of Westeros and the lands beyond. If the past is prologue, then George R.R. Martin?s masterwork – probably the most inventive and entertaining fantasy saga of our time warrants one hell of an introduction. In the end, it has arrived with THE WORLD OF ICE AND FIRE. George R.R. Martin, in collaboration with Elio M. Garc?a, Jr. and Linda Antonsson, has written a comprehensive history of the Seven Kingdoms, featuring the epic battles, bitter rivalries, and daring rebellions that lead as much as the events within the bestselling ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ series. Collected inside this volume is the accumulated wisdom, scholarly speculation, and inherited folk tales of maesters and septons, maegi and singers, including over 170 full-colour illustrations and maps, circle of relatives trees for the Houses Stark, Lannister and Targaryen, and in-depth explanations of the history and culture of Westeros. That is the definitive companion volume to George R.R. Martin?s dazzlingly conceived universe; The World of Ice and Fire is indeed proof that the pen is mightier than a storm of swords. An improbable book as a way to entertain and enchant avid fans of Game Of Thrones. This hardback book has 328 pages and measures: 30.5 x 23.5 x 2.5cm.
