A song of ice and fire book synopsis
Why the 'Game of Thrones' Show Is Better Than the Books | TimeSo, what now? Game of Thrones concluded last night with a finale that was, well, technically a finale. The story came to a conclusion. That conclusion was at times frustratingly mediocre and other times maddeningly stupid. Bran as the winner? No prophecies explained?

There is much in George R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire that follows the conventions of the fantasy genre, sometimes quite narrowly. But Martin also offers much that is novel, as well as some twists on familiar cliches, and his work stands head and shoulders above the mass of multi-volume fantasy series. The plot is complicated and convoluted and I don't want to give any spoilers, so I won't attempt a real summary. Inhuman but humanoid "Others" from the north are moving towards the ice Wall that protects the kingdom of Westeros, but the kingdom has fragmented as different claimants to the throne compete and no one has time to listen to warnings about threats known only from old stories Meanwhile, the last heir to the fallen dynasty that had ruled Westeros for three hundred years — and once knew how to breed dragons — is wandering the continent. The fantastic elements have, in the series so far, been relatively limited.
To be honest,I never thought I would read this,not because it is something I don't like it is something I most like ,but it is so huge. But now I thank the gods and the kings for making me read this. I can't explain how much I admire this book. It has been a part of my geeky life and I am proud for that. I am a fan,an ultimate true fan! Okay so now I'll talk about the perfection of them all Daenerys Targaryen.
I f George RR Martin could be granted one wish, it would be for more time. The bestselling author of the Song of Ice and Fire saga, the books that became television phenomenon Game of Thrones , is in London for a talk with historian Dan Jones about his most recent work, Fire and Blood , an imagined history of the Targaryen family the all-conquering ancestors of dragon queen Daenerys , before heading to the science-fiction event Worldcon in Dublin. Yet, at the back of his mind, is the work still to come. The Winds of Winter , the sixth and penultimate book in Ice and Fire, has to be finished and the seventh, A Dream of Spring , to be written. Such weariness is fleeting, however. He agrees, however, that the end of the series has relieved a great deal of pressure.
