George R.R. Martin Releases Image of Full-Sized Dragon


Have you ever wondered just how large Daenerys’ dragons would eventually come to be? Well, now you can finally have a look. George R.R. Martin, the author of the Song of Ice and Fire novels of which the hit HBO Original Series Game of Thrones is based upon, has released a sample from his upcoming book World of Ice and Fire: The Official History of Westeros and the World of The Game of Thrones on his website that contains a photo of what a full-sized dragon will actually look like.

Just when you thought that Daenerys’ dragons were getting big, this picture comes and blows them out of the water.

The sample gives you a lot of detail into the history of Westeros, and most importantly sets the stage for the conquest about to be undertaken by Daenerys Targaryen.

Here is a quick excerpt from the sample that gives you a little insight as to the image you are look at above.

All three siblings had shown themselves to be dragonlords before they wed. Of the five dragons who had flown with Aenar the Exile from Valyria, only one survived to Aegon’s day: the great beast called Balerion, the Black Dread. The remaining two dragons — Vhagar and Meraxes — were younger, hatched on Dragonstone itself.”

If you want to get your hands on the upcoming companion piece, you are going to have to wait just a little bit longer. The novel The World of Ice and Fire: The Untold History of Westeros and the Game of Thrones is scheduled to be released on October 28, 2014.

The novel is available for pre-order from most major outlets like Amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc.

Game of Thrones airs on Sunday nights at 9:00 p.m. on HBO.
