    Description

    Set 300 years before the events in A Song of Ice and Fire, Fire and Blood is the definitive history of the Targaryens in Westeros as told by Archmaester Gyldayn, and chronicles the conquest that united the Seven Kingdoms under Targaryen rule through to the Dance of the Dragons: the Targaryen civil war that nearly ended their dynasty forever.

    The thrilling history of the Targaryens comes to life in this masterly work by the author of A Song of Ice and Fire, the inspiration for HBO's Game of Thrones.

    With all the fire and fury fans have come to expect from internationally best-selling author George R.R. Martin, this is the first volume of the definitive two-part history of the Targaryens in Westeros.

    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 and 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. Listeners 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 Gibbons' The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Fire and Blood is the ultimate game of thrones, giving listeners a whole new appreciation for the dynamic, often bloody and always fascinating history of Westeros.

    This audio edition now includes an exclusive interview between George R.R. Martin and historian Dan Jones.

    PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

    Very good , well read and detailed

    Its written very well and positioned from the perspective of a narrator - historian . Nice fresh approach that makes you wonder how much is true. It puts a lot of perspective to the original Ice and fire saga. Very amusing and never dull. One downside : it ends closely after the civil war: Dance of Dragons events. Thus its a bit misleading because you expect the whole story until Aerys II.

    More of a chore than a pleasure!

    I'm a big fan of George R R Martin, but found this book heavy going. Despite the excellent narration, I was left feeling I needed a pen and paper in order to take notes in an effort to track character, dates and events! I was relieved when the book finished and hope I never hear Mushroom quoted again!

    OK for pseudo-history buffs ...

    ... but not so good if you were wanting a story like the GoT series. No one can fault Mr Martin when it comes to the depth and scale of his universe, but I really prefer his story-telling prowse. Nevertheless, it's well narrated and structured.

    Return to form.

    I feel like main series has gotten steadily waffly as it has gone on, but this book 100% gold. All the little threads and backstories give so muich depth to the rest of the world & inhabitants of Westeros. It really pulls things together. Its like the main books are full of jokes and this one has all the punchlines.

    More wonderful works building from GRRM

    Fire and Blood is a very unique book giving long time ASOIAF fans a great depth of back story to our main plot in the series. This book stands on it's own in terms of story, but it ads later upon later to GRRM's other works in the series. Can't wait for part 2, and the tv series that will be made from this. Also looking forward to The Winds of Winter more than any other book in my life. 5 stars. Give it a chance and you will not regret it at all....

    Absolutely Brilliant!!!

    I always enjoy the complexity with which George R. R Martin writes his novels, you understand why it takes as long as it takes. For anyone who’s a fan of “A Song of Ice and Fire” this is a great add to your knowledge and for anyone who’s a fan of well written stories and likes to imagine, this here is your gem. I can’t wait for the next one. While you might wish for Mr Martin to finish his books quicker what you do not want if for him to have compromised in anything that he did in this book and any of his other books. I love the narration by Simon Vance, “Well done Ser” in the voice of Ser Maynard Plumm

    Fun to listen to

    This was a good book, very informative. It is a little dificult to always keep the family tree straight with all the names being very similar. Bit all in all it was worth the time.

    Intransparenz... ist nur die halbe Geschichte

    Abgesehen von den sermonischen Eigenschaften der Chronik war ich am Ende wie vor den Kopf gestoßen, als ich feststellen durfte, dass das nur die *halbe* Chronik des Hauses Targaryen ist, die völlig abrupt um das Jahr 135 sowas endet. Das war vorher nirgendwo ersichtlich und deshalb fühle ich mich mal wieder bei audible um mein Geld betrogen... (hatte das schon oft hier, dass Hälften von Büchern als das Gesamtbuch präsentiert wurden und nur bei extrem aufwändiger Recherche als Teilpublikation erkenntlich waren)

    Great for lore nerds, but names-names-names

    Anstrengend

    Eine endlose Aufzählung von Namen, Titeln und Regionen mit wenig Handlung. Das Buch ist nur für eingefleischte Fans.

    Boring and tedious

    This is awful. An endless Wikipedia article. Dates and names. That's all. No narrative flow. Any real medieval chronicle is more engaging than this. The only thing I liked was the reader's voice.
