A World of Ice and Fire Demystifies the Game of Thrones Books

Winter is coming, by which I mean season 3 of Game of Thrones, the world’s favorite way to watch the foibles and follies (mostly violent ones) of the seven houses of Westeros and also to see Peter Dinklage be awesome. The TV series has also raised interest in the books, and publisher Random House has released an official app approved by and made in conjunction with George R.R. Martin for the “A Song of Ice and Fire” series, entitled A World of Ice and Fire. That’s the ‘official’ name for the series, “Game of Thrones” being the name of the first book that HBO uses for the TV show.

With all the characters and events to keep track of across Westeros, this app will be a great help. It contains biographic info on all the characters, information on all the locations. InfoPacks for each book in the series that unlock more info can be bought as an in-app purchase. If you want to get ahead of the game with information, use the spoiler slider to see what you aren’t supposed to know yet. The core app can be downloaded for free from Google Play which is cheaper than what the Iron Throne costs.
