Drei Jahrhunderte, bevor die Serie beginnt, eroberte Aegon Targaryen mit seinen Schwestergemahlinnen und ihren drei Drachen den Kontinent Westeros. 280 Jahre währte die Herrschaft seiner Nachkommen.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The thrilling history of the Targaryens comes to life in this masterly work by the author of A Song of Ice and Fire, the inspiration for HBO’s Game of Thrones. Centuries before the events of A Game of Thrones, House Targaryen—the only family of dragonlords to survive the Doom of Valyria—took up residence on Dragonstone. Fire & Blood begins their tale with the legendary Aegon the Conqueror, creator of the Iron Throne, and goes on to recount the generations of Targaryens who fought to hold that iconic seat, all the way up to the civil war that nearly tore their dynasty apart. What really happened during the Dance of the Dragons? Why was it so deadly to visit Valyria after the Doom? What were Maegor the Cruel’s worst crimes? What was it like in Westeros when dragons ruled the skies? These are but a few of the questions answered in this essential chronicle, as related by a learned maester of the Citadel and featuring more than eighty all-new black-and-white illustrations by artist Doug Wheatley. Readers have glimpsed small parts of this narrative in such volumes as The World of Ice & Fire, but now, for the first time, the full tapestry of Targaryen history is revealed. With all the scope and grandeur of Gibbon’s The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Fire & Blood is the the first volume of the definitive two-part history of the Targaryens, giving readers a whole new appreciation for the dynamic, often bloody, and always fascinating history of Westeros. Praise for Fire & Blood “I love it so much. Fire & Blood is Martin Unbound . . . and I couldn’t put it down. . . . There’s an addictive quality to the prose that’s outright gossipy. . . . The obvious comparison here is J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Silmarillion. . . . Writing centuries after the events he’s describing, the Gyldayn voice complicates this game of thrones with a clash of perspectives and a storm of debatable facts. . . . Heavy stuff, but Fire & Blood flies.”—Entertainment Weekly “A masterpiece of popular historical fiction.” —The Sunday Times “The saga is a rich and dark one, full of both the title’s promised elements. . . . It’s hard not to thrill to the descriptions of dragons engaging in airborne combat, or the dilemma of whether defeated rulers should ‘bend the knee,’ ‘take the black’ and join the Night’s Watch, or simply meet an inventive and horrible end.”—The Guardian

In the modern world, coming across as bolshie, outspoken and opinionated at a job interview usually guarantees that you are virtually unemployable. However, things are a bit different round at JD Investigations in Glasgow. There, it means that you’re hired on the spot. If you enjoy Tartan Noir with a double shot of humour, join young Annie James as she begins her new job, working as a summer intern with Jack Davidson. However, she quickly finds out that this temporary gig is completely different from all the mind-numbing, zero-hours contracts she has endured since leaving college. Having at last found a job where she is encouraged to use her brain, she takes on the considerable challenge of trying to drag her new employer, an old-school private detective and confirmed technophobe, screaming and kicking into the 21st century. Jack instructs Annie in the dark arts required to be an effective private eye and she, in turn, uses her youthful enthusiasm and IT skills to try to help his failing business. Then an old case from Jack’s past life, when he was a detective sergeant with Glasgow CID, returns to haunt him when the arsonist and killer Thomas Burke is unexpectedly released from prison. Swearing vengeance against the cop who put him away for eighteen years, he draws the two new partners into a deadly battle of wits where the psychopath always seems to be one step ahead. They are forced out of the city to a temporary safe haven on the scenic Solway coast, where they re-group and then return to Glasgow, ready to confront Jack's nemesis head on.

On March 25, 1911, the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in New York City burst into flames. The factory was crowded. The doors were locked to ensure workers stay inside. One hundred forty-six people—mostly women—perished; it was one of the most lethal workplace fires in American history until September 11, 2001. But the story of the fire is not the story of one accidental moment in time. It is a story of immigration and hard work to make it in a new country, as Italians and Jews and others traveled to America to find a better life. It is the story of poor working conditions and greedy bosses, as garment workers discovered the endless sacrifices required to make ends meet. It is the story of unimaginable, but avoidable, disaster. And it the story of the unquenchable pride and activism of fearless immigrants and women who stood up to business, got America on their side, and finally changed working conditions for our entire nation, initiating radical new laws we take for granted today. With Flesh and Blood So Cheap, Albert Marrin has crafted a gripping, nuanced, and poignant account of one of America's defining tragedies.
