"This is the comprehensive guide to all things Game of Thrones and beyond. From the prehistory to the coming of the First Men, through the reign of the Targaryen kings and Robert's Rebellion, this guide--co-written by George R.R. Martin and the immenselyknowledgeable founders and keepers of the www.westeros.org site--will tell series readers old and new all they might want to know about the history and culture of Westeros and the lands beyond the Narrow Sea--a tapestry of all new history that George hasinvented solely for this volume"--

If the past is prologue, then George R. R. Martin's masterwork--the most inventive and entertaining fantasy saga of our time--warrants one hell of an introduction. At long last, it has arrived with "The World of Ice and Fire."
This lavishly illustrated volume is""a comprehensive history of the Seven Kingdoms, providing vividly constructed accounts of the epic battles, bitter rivalries, and daring rebellions that lead to the events of A Song of Ice and Fire and HBO's "Game of Thrones." In a collaboration that's been years in the making, Martin has teamed with Elio M. Garcia, Jr., and Linda Antonsson, the founders of the renowned fan site Westeros.org--perhaps the only people who know this world almost as well as its visionary creator.
Collected here is all the accumulated knowledge, scholarly speculation, and inherited folk tales of maesters and septons, maegi and singers. It is a chronicle which stretches from the Dawn Age to the Age of Heroes; from the Coming of the First Men to the arrival of Aegon the Conqueror; from Aegon's establishment of the Iron Throne to Robert's Rebellion and the fall of the Mad King, Aerys II Targaryen, which has set into motion the "present-day" struggles of the Starks, Lannisters, Baratheons, and Targaryens. The definitive companion piece to George R. R. Martin's dazzlingly conceived universe, "The World of Ice and Fire" is indeed proof that the pen is mightier than a storm of swords.

This is a classy book. The cover is padded, and the texture gives it a hint of leather, or something more than typical slick covers. The illustrations in it are often from fandom, having each been chosen by the author because they epitomize the topic covered in a particular set of pages. The pages are not black type on white typical book pages. They are rich colors, with frequent illustrations enhancing the text. If you're a Games of Thrones fan, particularly of the books, you should love this volume that enhancing by filling in more of George Martin's world. This was a gift for my 21 year old son. He was even more impressed with it than he thought he'd be from the literary and fan reviews and descriptions. I shopped around, and Wal-Mart had the cheapest price. I combined it with another item (that frankly I could've just shopped for at our local stores) to reach the threshold for free shipping. It was nice to have them delivered to the house instead of having to wait in lines, and then wait for them to find it in their back rooms, at the store pickup!!

I got this as a gift but just had to look through it first. The book feels classy with a padded cover and the illustrations are amazing. Haven't read it very thoroughly, but this would be a great addition to the World of Ice and Fire fan's library.
