    TheGrifter It's a trick. Get an axe.

    Nothing says you've written yourself in a corner more than releasing books outside the timeline of your current, and unfinished, series. Whatever. I'll still read it.

    is it any good? I won’t buy it but maybe it’s worth a download.

    it’s crazy how my interest in this series has dwindled. 5-10 years ago I would have been up all night reading.

    It’s written in the same style as AWOIAF. I’m about 100 pages in and it’s been a decent read so far. I found in AWOIAF you didn’t really meet the Targ kings whereas this book humanizes them a lot in terms of their personality and decision-making. Worth a read

    Does it read like a dry text book like AWOIAF?

    It does in stretches but I find it more captivating. I found AWOIAF was only worth it for the illustrations tbh. The Aegon 1 chapter is word for word the same as in AWOIAF but then it starts to go into details about Aenys’ and Maegor’s upbringing and stuff

    Alright I’m like 250 pages in and I must admit it’s a really solid read. I’d 100% watch a series on the life of Jaehaerys 1

    I’m about 450 pages in and really enjoying it so far

    Dunk and egg novellas are probably my favorite stories in the Westeros world tho

    If you want an incredible breakdown of Robert's Rebellion and the background leading up to it...



    This is a huge series of videos, explaining history, breaking down theories, piecing things together, etc. Its fantastic
