Read the book that inspired House of the Dragon by George R. R. Martin before the show starts.

About two years have passed since the last episode of Game of Thrones. People couldn’t stay away from Westeros for long, though. Fans of Game of Thrones will be able to go back to the Seven Kingdoms on August 21 when House of the Dragon comes out. This series, like Game of Thrones, is based on one of George R. R. Martin’s fantasy books, and you can get your own copy on Amazon for less than $15 before the show starts.

A book as epic as Fire & Blood further building on the world of Westeros is tailor-made to have those tales brought to life on the screen. The prequel series is one of the most-anticipated new shows of the coming season, and its first episode will air in just a few days. In House of the Dragon, fans will see the battle for the throne begin. There will be challenges to Targaryens, people who think they are the rightful heirs to the throne will step forward, and dragons will once again fly through the clouds.

We’re very excited for this new series, but that goes without saying. Fans of Game of Thrones will meet new characters and learn more about what happened before everything that happened in A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series that inspired the show. Get Fire & Blood for just $13.99 before you watch the new series on HBO Max.
