Game of Thrones is based on the bestselling fantasy book series and is set in a grounded fantasy world inhabited by ambitious men and women of both honor and ill repute. In the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, whoever controls the Iron Throne, holds unbelievable power, , and also centres on the rise and fall of several families that covet that power at all costs.
There’s the noble Starks, whose patriarch Eddard, a.k.a. Ned, is named the Hand of the King after his predecessor dies under suspicious circumstances. There’s the conspiratorial Lannisters, whose secrets are plentiful and whose designs on controlling the throne will destroy the tenuous peace in the realm. Finally, there’s the dragon princess Daenerys, heir to the former dynasty, who waits just over the Narrow Sea with her malevolent brother Viserys, who dreams of a fiery re-conquest of the kingdoms their family used to rule.
This is a story of duplicity and treachery, nobility and honour, conquest and triumph. So get ready to be part of this wild ride into this amazing fantasy kingdom and be kept on the edge of your seat with Game of Thrones, where you either win or you die!
