There are always two sides to every issue, but I can definitely understand how his fans might be annoyed and betrayed when, after waiting years for WINDS OF WINTER, Martin comes out with a 600-plus page tome that's mostly irrelevant to the main story, even though it's set in the same world.Rick has been newly turned - figuring out the thralls of bloodlust alongside his vampire queen Lizzie. It gives a fascinating insight into how the author first conceived of Westeros and how he developed this complex world. To the contrary, to quote Laura Miller’s 2011 New Yorker profile, “[he] sometimes fleshes out only as much of his imaginary world as he needs to make a workable setting for the story. Set 300 years before the events in A Song of Ice and Fire Fire and Blood is the definitive history of the Targaryens in Westeros as told by Archmaester Gyldayn, and chronicles the conquest that united the Seven Kingdoms under Targaryen rule through to the Dance of the Dragons: the Targaryen civil war that nearly ended their dynasty forever.

The parts that truly focused on the Targaryens were great, but irrelevancy aside, my problem with this book is that the history tends to focus its narrative for a long period of time on other non-Targaryen characters; which frankly speaking by tomorrow I’ll forget already because I simply don’t give a damn about them. Ahora que empecé a leer en digital se me encendió la lamparita en la cabeza, y estoy leyendo "Canción de Hielo y Fuego".

As other reviewers have mentioned It is written more as a history than a story driven by characters so it can be hard to get involved as one does with the other books.

Here you are going to find a fully packed chronology with tons of names (let it be places or peoples) that will hold your interest when it gets more narrative-y (I know this isn't a word) but that will kill you with boredom when it wants to cram a thousant details, names, places in a single page.
