Today Westeros.org have posted up a review of the first few episodes of Season 3 of Game of Thrones. They received early review copies of the episodes and have shared their thoughts. Click the link if you want to read about the first few episodes before watching them. There aren’t massive spoilers, but if you want to be truly surprised when you watch the show, then don’t read it.
This time of year has become very exciting and full of anticipation as HBO starts to promote the series and we will soon be able to enjoy our weekly trips into the world of Ice and Fire.
The time is here! Remeber that Amazon has a lowest-price guarantee, so you can order now, and you won’t get charged until the book ships, and you will get the lowest possible price at that time. We don’t think you can beat Amazon for this kind of thing.
This is the next George R.R. Martin book that will be published before The Winds of Winter is released and the best you have to satisfy your cravings for ASOIAF. Besides Season 3 of Game of Thrones of course. The Book is co-authored by Elio and Linda from Westeros.org
We are getting really excited for Season 3, and just realized that Season 2 Blu Ray is about to be released finally. Last year we got some great new content from the bonus footage on the Season 1 disks. You can see most of it on Youtube, but it included the history of the houses as well as a lot of Westerosi history.
What will be the new and bonus content with the Season 2 Blu-Ray discs? Any ideas? More music from The National?
Don’t even think about it! After receiving my book yesterday, I couldn’t be happier with everything. The hardcover binder, the size and quality of the printing of the maps, but most of all the new content!
I’m not sure what most people’s expectations were but the map of Essos in particular is SWARMING with new cities and regions that we have never heard of! Will we find out more about the history of Essos? Just when you were thinking that Essos was nothing more than the free cities, Slaver’s Bay, and old Valyria, GRRM comes out and drops a bomb on us.
Serious, buy this and consider framing at least a few of them. It will be the best $24 you spent this year. Maybe get a few for Christmas gifts!

We linked to Daniel Abraham’s book the other day, and were reminded of the recently published Beyond the Wall. Here is the description from Amazon. If you have other suggestions on books to read while we wait for The Winds of Winter, please leave them in the comments. We need more to read.
