my frustrations over the long overdue Winds of Winter and to not let it affect my rating of this book As annoyed as I am and as annoyed as many of you are , I urge you to read and enjoy this for what it is That s all we can do And I surprised myself by writing these words because I honestly expected to write a review lamenting over the fact that we are still waiting for the sixth book in the series, and we will probably be waiting for a few years to come But instead I was enthralled by the richness of the history and the lore associated with the Targaryen dynasty In a way, it has reminded me why I love the series so much These are the histories of all the long dead and crazy Kings and Queens we ve heard our favourite characters dream about and wish they were These are heroes and tyrants, these are noble lords and evil psychopaths As Ser Barristan tells Daenerys in A Dance With Dragons King Jaehaerys once told me that madness and greatness are two sides of the same coin Every time a new Targaryen is born, he said, the gods toss the coin in the air and the world holds its breath to see how it will land So there s a rather eclectic bunch of characters chronicled here And I can t fault it whatsoever For the three days I spent reading this I forgot the outside world existed as I learnt about my favourite house I loved hearing about Maegor the cruel, how he got his name and how absolutely ruthless he was towards his own family Buffs of Westeros lore will know how he met his end it is referenced a few times in A Game of Thrones so I ve not bothered with a spoiler warning But as ever with Martin s world nothing is quite simple His death appears straight forward, he was found with his wrists slit having died from exsanguination after cutting himself on the throne Though this seems exceedingly suspicious the man was a renowned warrior and tactician, he would not have gone down so easily and stupidly Someone murdered him, no doubt, because of his tyrannical ways His history, and that of Aegon s original conquest, were the most interesting sections for me.The only other work of fantasy that is this ambitious is The Silmarillion. And of course Tolkien s world is much developed and finely crafted, but it s important to realise that many fantasy realms are not even big enough to have such a platform as this I can t think of another living writer of fantasy whose world is so extensive that a book like this could be written and written well And that sort of says a lot about how big this book is and how big this world is It s a fantastic addition to the A Song of Ice and Fire cannon And it s a real achievement Don t let your frustrations get in the way of you reading it Blog Twitter Facebook Insta Academia flag 496

aren t about the book at all 90% of the ones I glanced at were fans literally fighting with each other over how entitled they are to take the piss out of George R R Martin for publishing Targaryen fanfiction instead of WINDS OF WINTER And as both an author and a reader, I get it As a reader, I ve spent years, years, waiting for sequels to books I have enjoyed, only to sometimes see that the sequels are cancelled or eternally postponed after the author loses interest or the publisher does because it was a bust And as a writer, I ve also felt the frustration of being told to write sequels for books I have no time or inspiration to write although my fan base is in the thousands and his is in the millions, and I m not a full time author, nor can I afford to be There are always two sides to every issue, but I can definitely understand how his fans might be annoyed and betrayed when, after waiting years for WINDS OF WINTER, Martin comes out with a 600 plus page tome that s mostly irrelevant to the main story, even though it s set in the same world Yeah, I d probably be mad, too In fact, I am mad but for different reasons.In terms of the Game of Thrones fandom, I am a dilettante at best and utterly disinterested at worst I ve read the first two books in the series and they were okay The parallels to the War of the Roses and politics are probably the best thing about them, as I found the writing subpar, and it appears to degrade as the books go on In my review of the first book, A GAME OF THRONES, I write about the similarities the series has to many historical bodice rippers of the 70s and 80s, and talk about the irony of how some of the book s staunchest fans are the same people who also frequently condemn romance novels and the females who read them, despite the fact that many of the OG bodice rippers featured brutal heroes, a morally ambiguous cast of characters, and all kinds of physical and sexual violence, usually for revenge or for a political coup, but sometimes just to be a d ck I continue on that theme in my review of A CLASH OF KINGS, and then I got bored with the series.Part of the reason I wanted to read FIRE BLOOD was because Daenerys Targaryen was my favorite character in the series She also gets to go on the coolest adventures and she has three flipping dragons that she rides around like a BAMF For a fantasy series that really doesn t have that much magic in it, this was a huge draw for me, a fan of the OG swords and sorcery brand of fantasy Did I want to read of the Targaryens and their dragons Of course So as soon as this book popped up on my radar a while back, I added it to my to read list despite being done with the series because I was curious to read about the crazy, power mad Targaryens and their hotbed of dragons and incest that could make even a Lanister blush They always seemed like the most interesting House.Now that I ve tried to actually read FIRE BLOOD, I am disappointed This book basically does what the SILMARILLION did for the Lord of the Rings series It isn t a novel It s written as nonfiction, with a pretentious AF index in the front of timelines, divided into tedious accounts of marriages and battles It is NOT a novel, as I stated in my disclaimer at the top at least, not a novel in the traditional sense No, this is a novel masquerading as that dry history textbook that cost you 500 in college You know the one that was so old, it was fabric bound and smelled of mildew Yeah And while the concept is interesting and I found myself reading further than I wanted to, it isn t sustainable Not for 600 pages It s such a boring book, I couldn t believe that it would continue on in this vein for 600 pages So I skimmed ahead, looking for normal dialogue and narrative descriptions and nope It literally continues on in this manner for the full book.And lest you be suckered in by the promise of ILLUSTRATIONS on the cover, those aren t that impressive either The artist isn t bad but his art style isn t exactly attractive Considering Martin s immense popularity, you d have thought that he could have found an artist to bring the characters to life in a way that the book might be worth buying for the art alone But no There s better artwork to be had in the Official Game of Thrones Adult Coloring Book.1 star flag 72 likesLike see review View all 34

East Asian dragons, are legendary creatures in Chinese mythology, folklore, and East Asian culture at large Chinese dragons have many animal like forms such as turtles and fish but are most commonly depicted as snake like with four legs They traditionally symbolize potent and auspicious powers, particularly control over water, rainfall, typhoons, and floods The Dragon is also a symbol of power, strength, and good luck for people who are worthy of it in East Asian culture During the days of Imperial China, the Emperor of China usually used the dragon as a symbol of his imperial power and strength 2 The Legend of Ljubljana s Dragon Slovenia Central Europe Legend has it, this fearsome lizard lurked in the marshes that surround the Ljubljanica river, feeding on fish, otters, river rats farming folk, were prey for it Jason, a Greek hero was in fact on the run from King Aeetes he had stolen the king s beautiful daughter, Medea, into the bargain her magic had helped Jason complete the three tasks Aeetes had set him, and the two were very much in love at least for now Naturally Aeetes sent his entire fleet in pursuit of this smooth talking kidnapper, chasing him across the breadth of the Black Sea until Jason had been forced to take evasive action, sailing the Argo up the mouth of the Danube river, then into the Sava, and then finally up into the Ljubljanica river, as he tried to make it back to Thessaly, Greece.Having slain the leader of their would be captors by underhand treachery, I should probably add , the Argonauts were able to continue their journey relatively unmolested, until, coming towards the spring of the Ljubljanica river, the waters grew too shallow for the hull of such a mighty vessel Jason decided that his crew had no choice but to dismantle the ship and carry the boat in pieces, across the land to the Adriatic sea which was nearby , where they could reassemble their vessel and sail for home But as it was winter already, he also decreed that they would have to spend several months where they were, until the weather was favorable for their journey So they did just that, building a village on stilts in the marshes surrounding the river Unwittingly though, they had stumbled into the hunting ground of the dragon.On a cold winter s day, shortly after the Argonauts had set up their winter camp, the Greeks heard a terrible shrieking and saw the shadow of a giant flying beast rise from the waters next to their new home Spitting fire and noxious fumes over their wooden houses, the monster set half the village on fire, with many of the Argonauts plunging into the icy marsh waters to save themselves Several drowned, and one unlucky soldier was plucked by the scaly talons of the dragon and dragged back to its lair for supper.3 Y Draig Goch In Welsh mythology, after a long battle which the Welsh King Vortigern witnesses a red dragon defeats a white dragon Merlin explains to Vortigern that the red dragon symbolizes the Welsh, and the white dragon symbolizes the Saxons thus foretelling the ultimate defeat of the English by the Welsh The ddraig goch appears on the Welsh flag.4 Slavic Dragons zmey, zmiy, mij or zmaj, or drak, or smok Similar to the conventional European dragon, but multi headed They breathe fire and or leave fiery wakes as they fly In Slavic and related tradition, dragons symbolize evil Specific dragons are often given Turkic names see Zilant, below , symbolizing the long standing conflict between the Slavs and Turks However, in Serbian and Bulgarian folklore, dragons are defenders of the crops in their home regions, fighting against a destructive demon Ala, whom they shoot with lightning.5 Indonesian Malay Dragon Naga or Nogo Derived from the Indian N ga, belief in the Indo Malay dragon spread throughout Maritime Southeast Asia with Hinduism The word Naga is still the common Malay Indonesian term for a dragon Like its Indian counterpart, the Naga is considered divine in nature, benevolent, and often associated with sacred mountains, forests, or certain parts of the sea.6 Greek Dragons Drakon Cadmus fighting the Ismenian dragon which guarded the sacred spring of Ares is a legendary story from the Greek lore dating to before ca 560 550 B.C Greek dragons commonly had a role of protecting important objects or places For example, the Colchian dragon watched the Golden Fleece and the Nemean dragon guarded the sacred groves of Zeus 6 The name comes from the Greek drake n meaning to see clearly.Top 5 Dragon tracks 1 We Didn t Start the Fire Billy Joel2 Light my Fire The Doors3 Ring of Fire Jonny

thought I d review the actual book Three stars is perhaps a generous rating for the rather disappointing quality of the story, but it s mostly owing to the art and some parts of the story that were entertaining.The book purports to tell the history of the early Targaryen kings, from Aegon the Conqueror and his sisters to Aegon III, in 23 chapters that narrate the first part of their history as follows 1 The first half of the book is about Aegon I, Visenya and Rhaenys, telling their invasion of Westeros and how they conquered the Seven Kingdoms in four chapters This part isn t new at all, it was already known from the World of Ice and Fire encyclopaedia.2 The middle of the book is about the 50 years long reign of Jaehaerys I, from his ascendance to the throne at age 14 to his death, and comprises seven chapters that tell the entire history of the king, his Queen Alysanne and their thirteen children This part is mostly new material, as only a fraction of it was known, and in my opinion it s the most interesting and enjoyable part.3 The second half of the book is about the Dance of the Dragons, narrating in seven chapters the entirety of the civil war over succession between Princess Rhaenyra and Aegon II, the children of Viserys I by his two different queens This part is also already old news and lacking in novelty, it can be found in the encyclopedia as well as the novellas The Princess and the Queen and The Rogue Prince 4 The last part of the book is about the Regency during the minority of Aegon III after the Dance, telling the story of the rule of Cregan Stark until the last regent of the Council of Regents and Aegon III becoming of age to rule alone This part is the most tedious, uninteresting and mostly self indulgent Not new, either.Taking the book as a whole, I d say this isn t worth buying It s exclusively for completists and ASOIAF history buffs who ll happy dance at the irrelevant bits of new information this contains, and maybe for Targaryen fans Martin is no Tolkien, and it shows Not only is the writing dry and rather just barely adequate but the worldbuilding is also lazy, all lifted from English and European history and reworked in such recognisable ways that it s hard not to see it as merely changing names and adding dragons It s so mediocre that the author has resorted to simply taking historical rumours, like the one about Catherine the Great having relations with a horse, and giving it to a ruler in this book with no attempt at dissimulation or making it fresh and new The lazy writing shows in the names as well, such as Saera Sara , Aemma Emma , Helaena Helena , Larra Lara The anger of the fandom becomes understandable seeing we re fed subpar bits like this that aren t worth it Personally, I m rating it higher than I would otherwise only for the illustrations, as Wheatley s art doesn t deserve to be castigated with low ratings for the writer s shortcomings, and for the Jaehaerys I Alysanne portion,

is throwing a hissy fit over the fact that George decided to release Fire and Blood instead of working on releasing Winds of Winter but let s simply disregard these entitled fools with the wise words of Neil Gaiman George R.R Martin is not your bitch So you can rave all you want and waste your time by spreading negativity over a book you haven t even read, but I for my part cannot fucking relate Fire and Blood is an amazing piece of work that does for the World of Ice and Fire what The Silmarillion did for Tolkien s Arda It is an incredibly rich and detailed account of the lore of the world, the wars that were fought and the kings that ascended the throne, whether they were worthy of it, cruel or mad Fire and Blood details, as the title suggests, the history of the Targaryen Kings this first volume spans the time from the reign of Aegon the Conqueror to his sixth successor Aegon III, who sat the Iron Throne 130 years after Aegon the Dragon and his sisters first set foot on Westerosi soil The skeleton of this history was already written down by George in his The World of Ice and Fire The Untold History of Westeros, but whereas this interesting chapter of Westerosi history only got the space of a mere 50 pages in said work, Fire and Blood gives us 700 of them So even though there are some repetitions and even whole passages that were taken from the preceding work, Fire and Blood broadens the facts we already know to be true and ensnares them in a highly engaging epic Many of the heroes whose songs are sung in this book will be familiar to attentive fans of the A Song of Ice and Fire series, as they are referenced there many a times Those are the people whom our beloved characters aspire to be, to whom they look up to, even 300 years later One of my favorite stories in Westerosi history will forever be the Conquest I don t know why but Aegon, Visenya and Rhaenys seem so life like to me, and all the battles they fought to subdue the Seven Kingdoms are pretty fucking epic I like to call them the Triumvirate of Savageness When Aegon let Harren know that his line shall end for dragons fly , I was quaking in my seat, and fly they did, indeed I hope the GoT prequel will do them justice.But as much as I love the Conqueror, my true alliances and my heart lie with King Jaehaerys I and his wife, the Good Queen Alysanne Prior to reading Fire and Blood, I paid both of them no mind, but now I ll never forget them They are one of my all time favorite characters Jaehaerys ascended the throne in 48 AC at the age of fourteen to rule the Seven Kingdoms for the next fifty five years until his death of natural causes in 103 AC What a mood Archmaester Umbert famously declared that Aegon the Dragon and his sisters conquered the Seven Kingdoms, but it was Jaehaerys the Conciliator who truly made them one And all that I will say about Jaehaerys here is that he really was that bitch when his court and own mother forbid him to wed his sister for fear that the Faith would rise in rebellion against them, as they had in Aenys s time , Jaehaerys and Alysanne flew their dragons to Dragonstone to be secretly wed there, heeding neither counsel nor warning J wanted A to rule beside him Aegon had no secrets from Rhaenys and Visenya, and I have none from Alysanne , and many of the progressive laws especially in regards to the protection of women sprung from her ideas I love both of them than life itself So overall, Fire and Blood is a highly rewarding read if you re a fan of A Song of Ice and Fire and would like to deepen your knowledge of the world and its history Despite its length, it s an incredibly easy and quick read that will keep you on the edge of your seat or have you literally quaking in it However, I couldn t give it five stars due to some silly repetitions that speak of lazy editing e.g the last three sentences of one chapter were repeated 1 1 at the beginning of the next chapter for no reason at all and the fact that certain chapters were written with much less love than others In my opinion, the whole Dance of the Dragons could have been written in a engaging way, since it s one of Westeros s most interesting and bloody chapters, but it fell kind of flat in here Oh well flag 29 likesLike see review Jan 19, 2019 Ashley Daviau rated it it was amazing Before I get into babbling about how freaking amazing this book was I have one very

reading history, or fake history, you will not like this book It is very similar to A World of Ice and Fire, which was released several years ago, except that the illustrations aren t in color, and there is a significantly larger amount of content about a much narrow topic AWOIAF covered the entire history of Westeros and Essos This one just covers the first 130 or so years of Targaryen rule in Westeros the remaining 170 years will be covered in book two In fact, most of this material was already written before that book was published, and it was cut because it was too large If I m remembering correctly, the Targaryen section in AWOIAF was only about fifty to sixty pages long.Biggest takeaway this is not a book meant to be read all in one go I opted to read it in short bursts, usually a chapter or two at a time, for almost the entire month of January It worked out very well Though the sections on the Dance of the Dragons did start to wear on me after a bit I enjoyed this book because I enjoy extremely detailed nerd things and unnecessary backstory I enjoy the mental exercise of sinking so far into a fictional world that you treat it like a real world It appeals to me greatly I enjoyed it because it gives context for what eventually happens in Robert s Rebellion, and what comes after, what kind of world and legacy Daenerys is trying to reclaim, view spoiler what kind of family Jon Snow is unknowingly apart of hide spoiler If you are a hardcore ASOIAF reader, this book should appeal to you If you re the kind of person who likes fake history and nerd things that have tons of unnecessary detail, you might like this Casual readers you will probably not This is a 706 page hardcover with pretty small print, with no storyline to speak of, written like a history book There are a shit ton of Targaryens, and you will get them confused It is a literary indulgence, and it is supplementary material I m glad it exists, but YMMV, for sure flag 19 likesLike
