Game Of Thrones Prequel: Everything You Need To Know About Fire And Blood

We all knew this one was coming, but what can be made of the source material?

HBO

It will come as a surprise to absolutely no one that HBO’s Game of Thrones already has a spin-off series in the works. George R R Martin’s fantasy epic was originally adapted for television in 2011 and it took the world by storm.

From the breakthrough acting performances to the politics, the sex, the violence, and the most stunning visuals ever brought to the small screen, Game of Thrones forever changed what a television program could be. Despite an almost universally panned final season, this show as an overall product will go down in history as one of the most successful ever made.

With that being the case, the first inevitable spin-off is now officially on its way. Titled House of The Dragon, this prequel will be based on Martin’s book, Fire and Blood. The eagle-eyed of you will likely have already guessed which characters the story will centre on, going by these titles.

So, what do you need to know about this book before watching the show? This article will give a quick breakdown of Fire and Blood in order to prepare viewers for House of The Dragon. One great selling point for some is that David Benioff and DB Weiss have been nowhere near either of them.
