Fantasy. Fiction. Thriller. HTML:#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER  The thrilling history of the Targaryens comes to life in this masterly work, the inspiration for HBOs upcoming Game of Thrones prequel series House of the Dragon

The thrill of Fire & Blood is the thrill of all Martins fantasy work: familiar myths debunked, the whole trope table flipped.Entertainment Weekly
Centuries before the events of A Game of Thrones, House Targaryenthe only family of dragonlords to survive the Doom of Valyriatook up residence on Dragonstone. Fire & Blood begins their tale with the legendary Aegon the Conqueror, creator of the Iron Throne, and goes on to 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 was it so deadly to visit Valyria after the Doom? What were Maegor the Cruels worst crimes? What was it like in Westeros when dragons ruled the skies? These are but a few of the questions answered in this essential chronicle, as related by a learned maester of the Citadel and featuring more than eighty all-new black-and-white illustrations by artist Doug Wheatleyincluding five all-new illustrations exclusive to this edition. Readers have glimpsed small parts of this narrative in such volumes as The World of Ice & Fire, but now, for the first time, the full tapestry of Targaryen history is revealed.
With all the scope and grandeur of Gibbons The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Fire & Blood is the the first volume of the definitive two-part history of the Targaryens, giving readers a whole new appreciation for the dynamic, often bloody, and always fascinating history of Westeros.

A arrebatadora história dos Targaryen ganha vida neste novo livro de George R.R. Martin, autor de As Crônicas de Gelo e Fogo, série que inspirou a adaptação de sucesso da HBO, Game of Thrones.

Séculos antes dos eventos de A guerra dos tronos, a Casa Targaryen – única família de senhores dos dragões a sobreviver à Destruição de Valíria – tomou residência em Pedra do Dragão. A história de Fogo e sangue começa com o lendário Aegon, o Conquistador, criador do Trono de Ferro, e segue narrando as gerações de Targaryen que lutaram para manter o assento, até a guerra civil que quase destruiu sua dinastia.
O que realmente aconteceu durante a Dança dos Dragões? Por que era tão perigoso visitar Valíria depois da Destruição? Qual é a origem dos três ovos de dragão que chegaram a Daenerys? Essas são algumas das questões respondidas neste livro essencial, relatadas por um sábio meistre da Cidadela.
Ricamente ilustrado com mais de oitenta imagens em preto e branco assinadas pelo artista Dough Wheatley, Fogo e sangue dará aos leitores uma nova e completa visão da fascinante história de Westeros – um livro imperdível para os fãs do autor.

Borrowed from local library.

I am not a fan of Martin. That being said, Fire & Blood is a good, honest representation of his writing. It is professional, ultra-complex with twists and turns galore and filled with both bloody battles and intrigues and much fornicating and ribald/vulgar scenes in profusion. Granted this is a book of historical fantasy in a world with dragons and dragon-riders. In other words, not a thinly veiled picture of some actual historical period...unless someone knows otherwise?
But for my own tastes, Martin fails at one of the prime elements that I need to have to truly get wrapped up in any book: that is he does not have a protagonist who you can't help but cheer for. I have read much of his Game of Thrones series and did cheer for several characters at different points in the stories...I think he managed to kill each and every one of them with a handful of chapters.
Oh, Martin is a talented writer, don't get me wrong. F&B could easily become a hit on TV or in the movies, there is enough action, enough intrigue, enough death and gore and lots and lots of sex, most of it twisted (he seems to have chosen incest as his favorite form of intercourse to promote in both of these series...they are both set in the same universe/world so maybe that is the only connection...). Again, finding ways to gain support for incest is another reason I found this objectionable. I have read mysteries that have vigilante killers as "likeable" protagonists and hired assassins and other varieties of swashbuckling sexually active major characters, etc., but these all ultimately leave a sour taste in my mouth for one reason or another.
F&B may become a major day time action story that will run either as a regular show or in syndication. The biggest problem for that to happen is that the cast is too big, there must have been literally thousands of names over the 700 pages. But GRR Martin is a man of our time. His writing sells and sells big. Too bad there is no happy ending nor positive value being promoted. I guess he does promote integrity of character/action...but even men of integrity are often abandoned by those they protected.
Really, just not my cup of tea. ( )

Ok I didn’t really finish this book. I read one chapter and that’s all I could stand. It’s not really a narrative story so much as the worst, most boring textbook ever ( )

Written like a history book. Easy to read. I found this very interesting. ( )

This is phenomenal--just don't go into it thinking it's like the main series.

In short, this is a "history" book. It's a scholar compiling accounts of the earlier Targaryans. So it reads more like a textbook. There are multiple accounts of the same scenarios as this scholar pulls from different sources, and the veracity of various ones are up for debate. But if you go into it seeing it for what it is--an extra lore book--this is a great read. It's got great art, neat family trees, further accounts of things that were mentioned in the books but not really delved into, and so on. ( )
