The Song of Fire and Ice book series, also called A Game of Thrones, is a fantasy fiction series written by American author George R. R. Martin. The first book in the series was published in 1996 and since then, Martin has published five more books with two more planned. In total, there are seven planned books in the Song of Fire and Ice book series.
A Game of Thrones (1996) – The first book in the Song of Fire and Ice book series introduces readers to the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros and follows the struggle for the Iron Throne after the death of King Robert Baratheon. The book has been adapted into a highly successful HBO television series that is now in its eighth and final season.
A Clash of Kings (1998) – The second book in the Song of Fire and Ice book series picks up where the first one left off and continues to follow the fight for the Iron Throne. In this installment, several characters travel across Westeros and beyond as they seek to increase their power and influence.
A Storm of Swords (2000) – The third book in the Song of Fire and Ice book series is widely considered to be the best in the series. It follows several characters as they prepare for war while others participate in battle. Some notable events that take place in this book include weddings, funerals, and battles—lots and lots of battles.
A Feast for Crows (2005) – The fourth book in the Song of Fire and Ice book series was published four years after the third installment due to George R. R. Martin taking a break to work on other projects. This novel focuses on events taking place in King’s Landing while also following new characters introduced in earlier books who were not present for those events.
A Dance with Dragons (2011) – The fifth book in the Song of Fire and Ice book series returns to following multiple storylines that were left unfinished at the end of A Feast for Crows . In this novel, several key characters travel across Westeros and beyond as they seek to increase their power or just survive another day.
The Winds of Winter (TBA) – The sixth book in the Song of Fire-ice Book Series is currently unfinished but is expected to be published sometime in 2020… maybe. George R. R. Martin has been working on this installment for over a decade now so nobody really knows when it will be released at this point. All we can do is wait patiently (or not so patiently) for it to come out!
A Dream of Spring (TBA) – The seventh and final planned installment in the Song if Fire-ice Book Series is also unfinished but is expected to be published sometime after The Winds Winter. Just like its predecessor, release date predictions range from “soon” to “never” so only time will tell when we will finally get our hands on this long-awaited novel!
