Forthcoming Book:The Rise of the Dragon


The Rise of the Dragon

George Raymond Richard Martin


This lavish visual history—featuring over 180 all-new illustrations—is a stunning introduction to House Targaryen, the iconic family at the heart of HBO’s Game of Thrones prequel series, House of the Dragon. In contrast to Fire & Blood, Martin describes it as "written in a more encyclopedic style similar to The World of Ice and Fire".

For hundreds of years, the Targaryens sat the Iron Throne of Westeros while their dragons ruled the skies. The story of the only family of dragonlords to survive Valyria’s Doom is a tale of twisty politics, alliances and betrayals, and acts both noble and craven. 


The Rise of the Dragon chronicles the creation and rise of Targaryen power in Westeros, covering the history first told in Fire & Blood, from Aegon Targaryen’s conquest of Westeros through to the infamous Dance of the Dragons—the bloody civil war that nearly undid Targaryen rule for good.
