"The quintessential guide to the world of the HBO TV series. Adorned with some stunning period art, the encyclopedic work documents the entire history of Westeros throughout the eight seasons, offering the contexts behind defining Game of Thrones events, like the Red Wedding and the Battle of the Black Water...it also attempts to understand socio-cultural notions, such as masculinity in Westerosi society, religion, and the numerous family trees of each House." -Screen Rant

"Its attention to detail is astounding and would definitely serve as a fantastic (albeit spoiler-ridden) character guide for anyone starting the series anew who has trouble keeping track of the many, many characters in the show. But also contained within the book are up-close looks at some of the props, hand-drawn renditions of Game of Thrones' big battles, and handy charts, such as a really great breakdown of just how much wine Lannister siblings Cersei and Tyrion have. (Spoiler, it's a lot.)...There is plenty for both casual fans and longtime fans to enjoy." -The Daily Dot
