    Fire and blood

    A litany of names, battles, treachery. I stopped caring about a quarter way thru but plowed on to the end. It never got better

    Exciting... no!

    It reads like a Gr.11 history book, lots of facts and not too much insight. It is background for the Game of Thrones, without the ‘why it happened’, after waiting for anything new from the author for so long, this was something of a let down.

    Landfill

    A dozen pages of sctual story buried in a mindnumbing compilation of mesningless names and titles. If this is Martins current standard of writing it would be best if Game remains unfinished.

    Bloody, Brutal, and Brilliant

    I thought I knew what to expect from a new GAME OF THRONES book, having endured their brutality before. Boy, was I wrong. This was one of the most emotionally exhausting books I've ever read. And I loved it. The story spans hundreds of years, starting from the legendary King, Aegon the Conqueror, and carries on the stories of his centuries for roughly 150 years. From there, readers are swept up in adventure, betrayal, passion, brutality, consequence, and constant struggles for power. It's honestly hard for me to pick down a favourite era of Kings, since each one had a different core conflict, and each carried a different tone. Which leads me to a minor warning: This book is HEAVY. I love that it's realistic and sets the tone for GOT and draws you into the darkness of the world and the dangers of living in a world of power hungry royalty and their fierce dragons, but there were more than a few moments where I needed to stop and take a break from its contents. It gets almost unsavoury at parts, but I completely loved the stories and the world, so it was impossible for me not to be engrossed. Another minor complaint was that there were soooooo many characters, and many of them used the same names for their many children. It added to the lore and the legacy of the Targeryans, but left me a little confused at some moments. But both of those are minor complaints that anyone who's ever read a GAME OF THRONES book will be aware of and prepared for. All in all, this prequel is everything I could have ever asked for, and more. I love the Targeryan legacy, and this beautifully illustrated book only added to that love. It felt like a hundred stories in one, and I'm dying for the next book to continue its legacy.
