Quick fun fact about House of the Dragon

So, what about Hightower?

Hello, dearies! 🐉

You know what’s funny about House of the Dragon storyline and promo is that they say, return to Westeros and meet the history of Targaryen and Hightower, like fans of the show will hardly know what you’re referring to with Hightower, they scratched the surface with that house.

I bet not even half of those who watched the show would even be able to say, ah yes I know that house.

And no, the one you’re probably thinking about is the Tyrells, who are from Highgarden.  

In the books, of course, we know a lot more about them like the fact that Margery Tyrell’s mother was (is?) from Hightower.

Fact

House Hightower of the Hightower is one of the most powerful of the noble houses in the Reach. Their seat is the Hightower, located in the city of Oldtown. The sigil of House Hightower is a stone white watchtower, with a fire on the top.

So, yes, just a fun fact for everyone out there, I saw a promo vid for House of the Dragon and thought, huh, do they even know?

I’m currently reading Fire and Blood, and it’s interesting, to say the least, I hope to finish it before the show is out, but as most of George R. R. Martin’s books are a thousand million pages long, then that remains to be seen if I’ll finish quickly or not.

I’ll keep you posted and look for the review on it.

5 Game of Thrones related Books

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.

We Need to Talk about GOT: Finale

So this is the year of endings, apparently. Shadowhunters TV, The Big Bang Theory, Endgame. I am sure others as well but those are at the top of my mind, and nothing like last Sunday’s GOT Finale, which could not be farther from what I was expecting yet it did not disappoint me in one thing: I was not expecting more than what it happened.

If you thought this would be a complete happy and tearful one, then you are in for a treat. I will not trash it, much. I think. As usual if you have not watched yet and have not read the books, or the last book published A Dance with Dragons, then stop here for the night is dark and full of spoilers.

Hold the Door: A Game of Thrones Spoiler Ep for the fans 

Well ‘The Door’ was something else; I cannot believe all that happened, actually I do but the end scene was just too traumatic and dramatic for me to grasp that it was in fact, something that will happen in the books, spoilers, spoilers everywhere.

I liked the episode but from here on I am going to be back and forward between the books and what happened in the show, because this is just too  much to hold in, and have to say it all while it is still fresh.

A Dance with Dragons

A Song Of Ice and Fire #5

Author: George R. R. Martin

Since we are not getting A Song of Ice and Fire #6The Winds of Winter anytime soon, I might as well write about A Dance with Dragons, which is my favourite book so far in this saga. Especially because of Dany.

On that note, I love this one. It is quite interesting to say the least. If you are mainly a fan on the HBO Tv Series, then good for you that’s nice. However, the books? What can I say? I have a freaking main page in this blog solely dedicated to it, doesn’t that say how awesome they are? I confess I started reading the books after season one of GOT but come on, you see the series you go running face first into the books and then… nothing, you stay in limbo because Mr Martin haven’t published the 6th book.
