House_Of_The_DragonGame of Thornes fans if you haven’t heard or seen there is now a teaser trailer for House of The Dragon.   Which you can see > here or below.  It has been well known that this show has been in the works for years.  It based off the book Fire and Blood: 300 Years Before A Game of Thrones (A Targaryen History).  Read this back in 2019 and really enjoyed it.  Am thinking the show will only use parts of it.  The teaser trailer does look good.  Am hoping the show do live up to the hype.  I will find out some time in 2022.

Fire and Blood: 300 Years Before A Game of Thrones

One of the gifts I received this year was the book, Fire and Blood: 300 Years Before A Game of Thrones (A Targaryen History).  It is set in the same world which George R.R. Martin the A Song of Ice and Fire series in.  This book as you can guess from the full title is a history book.  Have read a book similar to this one a while back called, The World of Ice & Fire: The Untold History of Westeros and The Game of Thrones.  That was an interesting read if you are into the details of this world.  However if you are not a fan of real or fake history that book will not be for you.  As for Fire and Blood.  Have only read about twenty pages so far.  It has that same history book feel to it.  So it might not be for everyone.  It is all so pretty big, 736 pages.  Will work my way though it.  Am a big fan of the main books and the TV show.

Fire_And_Blood_300_Years_Before_A_Game_Of_ThronesIt will be a lot longer yet before we get to read the next book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series.  Which is called The Winds of Winter and it is the sixth book in the series.  While we wait for that.  George R.R. Martin as another book out soon that is set in the same world.  It is called Fire and Blood: 300 Years Before A Game of Thrones (A Targaryen History).  Amazon.ca has it listed to be out November 20, 2018.  Not sure how true this is, but have read this is a part one book.  I am cool with having another one down the line some time.  Will be adding this to my list of book to get.
