New Game of Thrones Teaser

I picked up George R.R. Martin's Game of Thrones by accident.  I thought I was starting a finished trilogy.  After reading Wheel of Time and Sword of Truth, I longed for a complete story.  Somewhere in the middle of the second novel of the Song of Ice and Fire series, A Clash of Kings, I learned that it was the series was only at the beginning.  No clear end was in sight.  Too late though.  I was invested in the intricate tales of power, politics, and games.  The seven kingdoms of Westeros were too fascinating to walk away from.

Fast forward several years.  We are awaiting the fifth book, A Dance with Dragons, with all the class of a dog drooling over bacon.  We have something to keep our appetite at bay though.  The excitement I felt when Martin announced that Game of Thrones would become a HBO series at his blog can be summed in two words: "Frak, yes."  I was worried that something would go wrong in the delicate world of Hollywoodland, but it's here.  HBO announced that the premiere date will be Sunday, April 17.  They also just released a new trailer!  Look at the Iron Throne!  I have not felt this level of fangirl squee since Battlestar Galactica.

MTV Geek News has a lot of new pictures from the set, including direwolf puppies!


  1. I am super excited too. The throne is great!

  2. Did you read the final books of Sword of Truth eventually?

  3. Ah, yes. "Boromir: The Series."

  4. The teaser is so good! And the Iron Throne is quite terrifying. I can't wait!

    Also, I want a direwolf puppy. Too cute.

  5. I cannot bring myself to read these books... but yes, I own them *glares at dusty books* I refuse to read them until the final book is published... How many times have we been promised "A Dance With Dragons"? I don't know that I'll be able to watch the show without having read the books, it may pain me. But I have Tad Williams recently completed Shadowmarch quadralogy to keep me company for the next few weeks.

  6. looks good! I just need to find someone with HBO now.
    I too have been waiting forever for the next book! and when it comes out I will have to reread all of them because I've forgotten pretty much everything. Not that I mind reading books more than once but I had to do that when I read A Feast for Crows.
    Funny, I just picked up Shadowheart from the library today!

  7. i own this, now i must make time to read it!!!!!

  8. Sarah - No, I gave up. I think in the last book I read there was something about crazy or possessed chickens.

    Eleni - I hope it leads to direwolf plush toys! :D

    Noe - I know that Dance has taken years. Literally. I went to a signing for Feast for Crows, and I think it was over 5 years ago. It's frustrating. I don't even remember what was happening; I'll have go back and re-read.

    Julie - Exactly! I used to re-read with Wheel of Time too, but then I just stopped and I'll wait for the final book release before I go back.

    Leia - They are excellent! But as you saw in the previous comments, be warned. It's not finished, and it's not exactly being cranked out. ;)
