Summary
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * THE NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN HISTORY OF WESTEROS AND THE LANDS BEYOND * WITH HUNDREDS OF PAGES OF ALL-NEW MATERIAL FROM GEORGE R. R. MARTIN <br> <br> If the past is prologue, then George R. R. Martin's masterwork--the most inventive and entertaining fantasy saga of our time--warrants one hell of an introduction. At long last, it has arrived with The World of Ice & Fire .<br> <br> This lavishly illustrated volume is a comprehensive history of the Seven Kingdoms, providing vividly constructed accounts of the epic battles, bitter rivalries, and daring rebellions that lead to the events of A Song of Ice and Fire and HBO's Game of Thrones . In a collaboration that's been years in the making, Martin has teamed with Elio M. García, Jr., and Linda Antonsson, the founders of the renowned fan site Westeros.org--perhaps the only people who know this world almost as well as its visionary creator.<br> <br> Collected here is all the accumulated knowledge, scholarly speculation, and inherited folk tales of maesters and septons, maegi and singers, including<br>  <br> * full-color artwork and maps, with more than 170 original pieces<br> * full family trees for Houses Stark, Lannister, and Targaryen<br> * in-depth explorations of the history and culture of Westeros<br> * 100% all-new material, more than half of which Martin wrote specifically for this book<br> <br> The definitive companion piece to George R. R. Martin's dazzlingly conceived universe, The World of Ice & Fire  is indeed proof that the pen is mightier than a storm of swords.
