There’s a New Game of Thrones Book! (sort of)

10 Oct 2015

George R.R. Martin, you’re playing with our hearts. There’s a new Game of Thrones book (a prequel story called A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms) out this week, which sparked the following conversation in our office:

“WHOA. There’s a new George R.R. Martin book out today?” – Taylor

“Yeah. I told you that.” – Chloe

“STOP IT, George R.R. Martin, I need more Game of Thrones books! Stop releasing things unless it’s the next Game of Thrones book.” – Ben (who is obviously very passionate about the matter)

“It IS a Game of Thrones book. But not the one you want.” – Chloe

No – the new George R.R. Martin book doesn’t continue the story from where A Dance with Dragons left off. We still have SO MANY questions.

About the New Game of Thrones Book by George R.R. Martin

A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms takes place a century before Robert Baratheon arrives in Winterfell to visit his friend Eddard Stark. Before Tyrion Lannister and Jon Snow and Khal Drogo, there were Ser Duncan the Tall and his squire Egg.

This version of Westeros features a Targaryen on the Iron Throne. Go back into the history of Westeros in this brand new novella by George R.R. Martin.

If you’re a huge fan of the Game of Thrones books, we recommend picking up the hardcover version. It features gorgeous new illustrations that you won’t want to miss.
