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 did it become so deadly to visit Valyria after the Doom What is the origin of Daenerys’s three dragon eggs These are but a few of the uestions answered in this essential chronicle as related by a learned maester of the Citadel and featuring than eighty all new black and. A good and unnecessary comprehensive historical overview of the Targaryen KingsThe aesthetic of this book is gorgeous; easily one of the most beautiful books I own I mean it the cover art of both editions are stunning the typography inside the book is beautiful the font used Centaur was easy to read and most of all Doug Wheatley’s artworks were simply spectacular to look at As for enjoyment factor I really wouldn’t call this an enjoyable read it was like a homework reading that I gladly imposed upon myself on my own will This book took me almost three weeks to read; that’s an extremely long time for me to spend reading on a single book For a bit of comparison I finished reading The Crippled God 385k words in four days and Oathbringer 450k words in six daysPicture King Aegon I On Balerion the Black Dread by Doug Wheatley Fire and Blood explored the history of the Targaryen Kings from the time of Aegon I’s conuest up to the ascension of Aegon III If you’ve read The World of Ice and Fire Page 29 86 you’ve read the abridged version of this book Now then the uestion you're probably asking would be If I've read The World of Ice and Fire is it still necessary to read this book My answer to that would be nope it's not necessary at all In fact having read this one I would be satisfied with the information I got from The World of Ice and FirePicture One of the interior artworks by Doug WheatleyThe most significant additional contents here were the intricate expansion of Jaehaerys’s story and The Dance of the Dragons The World Ice and Fire made me super interested in Jaehaerys I feel like he was one of the extremely few kings in the history of Westeros who ruled with kindness and justice and I'm glad to get the chance to read of his rule The Dance with the Dragons part in The World of Ice and Fire were too short to make me care but here it was awesome to see the deaths of each dragon in details Although I think this was a good read I will conclude that I can’t actually recommend this to anyone unless they’re extremely fanatics about A Song of Ice and Fire dying to know every single tiny detail and wouldn’t mind knowing about every stranger irrelevant to the main series Just like the existence of this book a lot of sections felt like fillers The parts that truly focused on the Targaryens were great but irrelevancy aside my problem with this book is that the history tends to focus its narrative for a long period of time on other non Targaryen characters; which frankly speaking by tomorrow I’ll forget already because I simply don’t give a damn about them Remember there’s close to zero emotions within the storytelling of this book; just like The World of Ice and Fire this imaginary history is told entirely from the writing of an Archmaester Wheatley’s artwork immensely helped during the boring parts for me just the fact the next gorgeous artwork awaits me I was able to push myself reading through the boredomPicture Vermithor at the Second Battle of Tumbleton by Doug WheatleyIn my opinion Fire and Blood is an unnecessary read but overall a better book compared to A Feast for Crows or A Dance with Dragons; that should say what I think of book four and five of the main series I won’t deny Martin’s importance as a role model for modern fantasy it would be idiotic for me to deny that; a myriad of incredible epic fantasy books appeared because of his influences However if you’ve read anything he produced after A Storm of Swords it should be very clear that he doesn’t know how to continue with his series any Martin is praised for the first three books of the main series not book four and five With this book finished I’ve read all the books in A Song of Ice and Fire; main series and spin offs included I can say with confidence that Martin isn't even included in my top 10 favorite authors of all time list for now Maybe his next book can change that notion but what's next and when will that happen Maybe even a reread through the main series can change that but that's something I'll do only when Winds of Winter is truly near its publication dateFor now Words are windYou can order the book from Book Depository Free shipping You can find this and the rest of my reviews at Novel Notions
