Centuries before the events of Game of Thrones, House Targaryen – the only family of dragonlords to survive the Destruction of Valyria – took up residence on Dragonstone. The story of Fire & Blood begins with the legendary Aegon the Conqueror, creator of the Iron Throne, and goes on to chronicle the generations of Targaryen who fought to hold the seat, until the civil war that nearly destroyed their dynasty.
What really happened during the Dance of Dragons? Why was it so dangerous to visit Valyria after the Destruction? What were Maegor the Cruel’s worst crimes? These are some of the questions answered in this essential book, told by a wise maester of the Citadel.
