Review: The Princess and The Queen, or, The Blacks and The Greens

The Princess and The Queen, or, The Blacks and The GreensThe Princess and The Queen, or, The Blacks and The Greens by George R.R. Martin My rating: 4 of 5 stars The Princess and The Queen, or, The Blacks and The Greens is a story published in anthology “Dangerous Women”. This story tells the history of the civil war known as the Dance of the Dragons fought for the Iron Throne of Westeros between two rival branches of House Targaryen. Brutal and bloodthirsty, this story detailed what war was like when there were plenty of dragons in Westeros. This was a very enjoyable read. Recommended for anyone who’s interested in the expanded history beyond A Song of Ice and Fire series. View all my reviews

Review: The Hedge Knight

The Hedge KnightThe Hedge Knight by George R.R. Martin

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Hedge Knight takes place about a hundred years prior to the events in A Song of Ice and Fire. This short story recounts the adventures of Ser Duncan the Tall who sets forth to the tourney at Ashford Meadow in search of fame and glory and the honor of upholding his oath as a knight of the Seven Kingdoms. This novella is short, interesting and a much faster read. It added further depth to the already expansive world of Westeros. Highly recommended novella for every fan of A Song of Ice and Fire series.

Game of Thrones Characters in the 80′s/90′s – Part 2

This new set by designer Mike Wrobel casts Ygritte as Jon Snow’s grunge contemporary, Sandor Clegane aka The Hound as the creepy school janitor, Tywin Lannister as the Chief of Police, and Bran as the kid version of Professor X . The color theme for Robb Stark and Talisa Maegyr is perfect, and the radical White Walker in windbreaker enjoying popsicle – Summer is Coming!!

Robb Stark
Talisa Maegyr
Ygritte needs the right outfit to come along with the Grunge version of Jon Snow
Sandor Clegane (The Hound) would be perfect as the typical creepy college janitor we can find in the 80s/90s slasher movies. Everything tends to make us believe he is the murderer, but come on! he wears a Homer Simpson t-shirt
Tywin Lannister, Chief of Police
Bran Stark
White Walker wearing a very 90’s neon windbreaker and enjoying a popsicle. Summer is coming.

Game of Thrones Characters in the 80’s/90’s

Ever wondered what Game of Thrones would look like if it took place in the 80′s or early 90’s? Well, you can put this question to rest thanks to Mike Wrobel. The graphic designer just put together these seriously cool renditions of some of the characters if they lived in the 80′s or early 90′s. Jon Snow, the Nirvana fan is my personal favorite.

Jon Snow, Grunge version
Arya Stark, tomboy
Sansa Stark, a Beverly Hills student
Khal Drogo, a hard rock musician
Daenerys Targaryen with Drogon, Rhaegal and Viserion
Jaime Lannister, Miami Vice mode
Tyrion with an unlikely shirt straight out of an episode of Parker Lewis
Cersei, as an 80s glam rock star
Joffrey Baratheon
Bronn, relax as always, wearing the iconic Adidas tracksuit
Margaery Tyrell, in a very 90s floral dress
Brienne of Tarth in armour
Theon Greyjoy holding a hotdog (Those who watched season 3 will understand about the sausage…^_^)
