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.

 

(to be published in Fall 2019)

Illustrated by Doug Wheatley

Exclusive full-color illustrations by Gary Gianni

Important Notes:

At this time, only those who own the limited or lettered edition of A Dance with Dragons may order the corresponding lettered or numbered copy of Fire & Blood. Please mention your copy number or letter when checking out.

Those who own A Dance with Dragons are NOT required to order Fire & Blood to maintain their priority in ordering the next volume of A Song of Ice and Fire.

Those who order Fire & Blood will have the first opportunity to order the second volume of the definitive history of the Targaryens, if we publish an edition of the volume. (To be perfectly clear, we do not know the publication date of the second volume, and do NOT have it under contract.)

About the Book:

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. 

Our edition will be slightly oversize, likely with the following features:

  • All of the art from the trade hardcover;
  • Printed on 80# Finch;
  • An original full-color frontis by Gary Gianni
  • Seven original full-page interior illustrations by Gary Gianni
  • One original full-color gatefold illustration by Gary Gianni

The lettered edition will:

  • Be custom bound, likely in leather and cloth, by far the most lavish GRRM production we've ever published;
  • Sport an original Garry Gianni remarque in each copy;

Limited: 750 signed (by George R. R. Martin and Gary Gianni) numbered hardcover copies, housed in a custom slipcase

Lettered: 52 signed (by George R. R. Martin and Gary Gianni) copies, bound in leather and cloth, housed in a custom traycase
