George R. R. Martin announces a new book – ‘The Rise of The Dragon’




Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon has finally wrapped up filming, and it might still be a while as the show is still in its post-production phase, the crew busy adding finishing touches. So while we wait for a release date/ full trailer, George R. R. Martin is dropping bombs regarding his work, whether it is about Winds of Winter or other Game of Thrones spinoff shows. His most recent announcement revolves around House of The Dragon, and it is as beautiful as anyone can imagine.

Martin recently introduced The Rise of The Dragon, visual history of House Targaryen that consists of 180 amazing new illustrations based on the book Fire and Blood. He wrote in his blog Not A Blog:


Pre-order: The Rise of the Dragon (Amazon)

“For those of you who are wondering: What’s the difference between The Rise of the Dragon and Fire & Blood? Think of The Rise of the Dragon as a deluxe reference book, in which Westeros’ most infamous family – and their dragons – come to life in partnership with some truly incredible artists.”


Fire & Blood was scribed as a grandmaesters’ account of events from Aegon Targaryen’s conquest of Westeros through to the infamous Dance of the Dragons, the civil war that nearly undid the Targaryen rule. The Rise of the Dragon will cover the same time period, but is written in a more encyclopedic style similar to The World of Ice and Fire. In fact, The World of Ice and Fire authors Elio M. García, Jr. and Linda Antonsson have returned to help with this tome.”

The Rise of the Dragon is perfect for fans waiting for a return to Westeros, as well as those meeting the Targaryens for the first time in HBO’s House of the Dragon. The book will be available here in October 2022. Are you excited about the upcoming Targaryen encyclopedia? Tell us in the comments below!
