The book is currently available for pre-order and will be released on October 25, take a first look here.
Dragon House brings fans a look at the Targaryen like we’ve never seen before. Mainly because we didn’t really have a lot of Targaryens to discover in game of thrones. Seeing Daenerys Targaryen’s family when they were in power and had dragons ready was a fun time for fans of the franchise, and now you can find out more about the family with The Rise of the Dragon: An Illustrative History of the Targaryen Dynasty written by George RR Martin, Elio M. Garcia Jr., and Linda Antonsson.
The collider’s own Maggie Lovit previewed the book before publication and shared it,
“The rise of the dragonThe stunning illustrations make this a must-have collectible for game of thrones enthusiasts who have been swept away by the rich Targaryen tradition of Dragon House. It is unfortunate that the release of the books was marred by credible allegations of racism against its co-author, which will limit the number of people who can enjoy this storied tome. “
The book is slated for release on October 25 and will be a way for fans to continue learning more about the Tagaryans now that season 1 of Dragon House will have ended. Looks like a nice exploration of the Targaryen line which will come in handy for unboxing Dragon House before the release of Season 2 or it can be used to unpack what we learned in Season 1.

For hundreds of years, the Targaryens sat on the Iron Throne of Westeros as their dragons ruled the skies. The story of the only family of dragonlords to survive Valyria’s Doom is one of twisted politics, alliances and betrayals, and deeds both noble and cowardly. THE RISE OF THE DRAGON chronicles the creation and rise of Targaryen power in Westeros, spanning the story first told in George RR Martin’s epic FIRE & BLOOD, from Aegon Targaryen’s conquest of Westeros to the infamous Dance of the Dragons, the bloody civil war that nearly ended Targaryen’s rule for good.
The images, which you can see below, are a stunning look into the world of Westeros and the Targaryens and the carvings highlight the power they once had.
