As we all know, Game of Thrones the TV show has ended, our watch has ended, the night came with its terrors, winter came and went in a puff, and the fire and blood of the last episodes left us with a huge hole, so to fill it up let us go around and see what else is out there about this world that held us captive for almost a decade only to be completely finished in a not so-great finale.
Since we do not have the 6th Book to actually know what happens in A Song of Ice and Fire, then we turn to others to understand a bit more of it or to simply read something new, because there is always time for that. Here are 5 Books related to Game of Thrones.

Fire & Blood: 300 Years Before A Game of Thrones (A Targaryen History)
‘What really happened during the Dance of the Dragons? Why was it so deadly to visit Valyria after the Doom? What were Maegor the Cruel’s worst crimes? What was it like in Westeros when dragons ruled the skies? These are but a few of the questions answered in this essential chronicle, as related by a learned maester of the Citadel and featuring more than eighty all-new black-and-white illustrations by artist Doug Wheatley. Readers have glimpsed small parts of this narrative in such volumes as The World of Ice & Fire, but now, for the first time, the full tapestry of Targaryen history is revealed.’
A Game of Thrones: The Graphic Novel, Volume One
‘You’ve read the books. You’ve watched the hit series on HBO. Now acclaimed novelist Daniel Abraham and illustrator Tommy Patterson bring George R. R. Martin’s epic fantasy masterwork A Game of Thrones to majestic new life in the pages of this full-color graphic novel. Comprised of the initial six issues of the graphic series, this is the first volume in what is sure to be one of the most coveted collaborations of the year.’
The World of Ice & Fire: The Untold History of Westeros and the Game of Thrones
‘If the past is prologue, then George R. R. Martin’s masterwork—the most inventive and entertaining fantasy saga of our time—warrants one hell of an introduction. At long last, it has arrived with The World of Ice & Fire.
This lavishly illustrated volume is a comprehensive history of the Seven Kingdoms, providing vividly constructed accounts of the epic battles, bitter rivalries, and daring rebellions that lead to the events of A Song of Ice and Fire and HBO’s Game of Thrones. In a collaboration that’s been years in the making, Martin has teamed with Elio M. García, Jr., and Linda Antonsson, the founders of the renowned fan site Westeros.org—perhaps the only people who know this world almost as well as its visionary creator.’
Game of Thrones Psychology: The Mind Is Dark and Full of Terrors
‘In Martin’s richly detailed world, deceit, manipulation, and greed rule the day, and almost everyone is fighting to gain ultimate power over the realm. With no moral boundaries honored, the psychological games played by the series’ conniving protagonists are seemingly limitless. War, murder, violence, and rape are only a few of the weighty issues these 19 analytical essays explore—along with personality disorders, post-traumatic stress, and psychopathy. Covering both the books and the show, Game of Thrones Psychology will become a fan favorite.’
A Feast of Ice and Fire: The Official Game of Thrones Companion Cookbook
‘Ever wonder what it’s like to attend a feast at Winterfell? Wish you could split a lemon cake with Sansa Stark, scarf down a pork pie with the Night’s Watch, or indulge in honeyfingers with Daenerys Targaryen? George R. R. Martin’s bestselling saga A Song of Ice and Fire and the runaway hit HBO series Game of Thrones are renowned for bringing Westeros’s sights and sounds to vivid life. But one important ingredient has always been missing: the mouthwatering dishes that form the backdrop of this extraordinary world. Now, fresh out of the series that redefined fantasy, comes the cookbook that may just redefine dinner . . . and lunch, and breakfast.’
