The Fire and Blood book I got is ace.

 

I'm in.

Okay, as someone who hasn't read the books but suffered through the last few seasons of the original tv show, I gotta ask: is that an actually finished book that is really finished for real with a proper ending and everything?

It's essentially a history book about some of the first Targaryan monarchs. So a very different style to the main ASOIAF novels.

It's more of a history book than a novel. So the history of who killed who is all set and decided.

Oh god. Oh god. So the tv show writers have to think up all the characterization and dialogue themselves?! Jesus.

 

Edit: to clarify that I'm not just being negative for the sake of it - the tv show writers having only a few big events to go on and being forced to actually write decent dialogue and convincing characterization entirely by themselves, was exactly what went wrong will the main show. I hope this is not shit, but for now we have zero evidence pointing to the contrary. We shall see.

The characters are very loosely drawn, you get a sense of them but not the depth of A Song of Ice and Fire.

This has now been confirmed and named. Ryan Condal and Miguel Sapochnik will be showrunners, with Sapochnik down to direct at least the first episode.
