Fire and Blood by George RR Martin review – not for the average fan
A s the world waits expectantly for the eighth and final series of the fantasy epic Game of Thrones to appear on TV next April, its creator George RR Martin has finally released a new book. But rather than the oft-delayed sixth Thrones novel, The Winds of Winter — which will itself be preceded by the finale of the show — he has produced the first in a separate two-part saga. To understand the disappointment with which Fire and Blood will inevitably be greeted by all but the most committed Martin aficionados, imagine Tolkien choosing to follow The Two Towers with an almost decade-long wait for a sequel, and releasing The Silmarillion in between. However, Fire and Blood must be judged on its own merits — that is, as a carefully conceived and exhaustive to say nothing of exhausting examination of a fantastical historical world. It is partly inspired by British medieval history; many of the main characters are analogous to real-life kings, with Aegon the Conqueror not a million miles away from near namesake William, and the heroic Daenerys owing much to Henry II. The narrative drive and bold characterisation of the other Game of Thrones books thus gives way to something more discursive. At its most tedious, the book lists names for paragraphs on end.
