El nuevo libro de George R. R. Martin narra la fascinante historia de los Targaryen, la dinastía que reinó en Poniente trescientos años antes del inicio de "Canción de hielo y fuego", la saga que inspiró la serie de HBO: Juego de tronos. Siglos antes de que tuvieran lugar los acontecimientos que se relatan en "Canción de hielo y fuego", la casa Targaryen, la única dinastía de señores dragón que sobrevivió a la Maldición de Valyria, se asentó en la isla de Rocadragón. Aquí tenemos el primero de los dos volúmenes en el que el autor de Juego de tronos nos cuenta, con todo lujo de detalles, la historia de tan fascinante familia: empezando por Aegon I Targaryen, creador del icónico Trono de Hierro, y seguido por el resto de las generaciones de Targaryens que lucharon con fiereza por conservar el poder, y el trono, hasta la llegada de la guerra civil que casi acaba con ellos. ¿Qué pasó realmente durante la Danzade dragones? ¿Por qué era tan peligroso acercarse a Valyria después de la Maldición? ¿Cómo era Poniente cuando los dragones dominaban los cielos? Estas, y otras muchas, son las preguntas a las que responde esta monumental crónica, narrada por un culto maestre de la Ciudadela, que anticipa el ya conocido universo de George R.R. Martin.

#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

Mexican history comes to life in this “fascinating” work by the author of Lone Star: A History of Texas and the Texans (The Christian Science Monitor). Fire & Blood brilliantly depicts the succession of tribes and societies that have variously called Mexico their home, their battleground, and their legacy. This is the tale of the indigenous people who forged from this rugged terrain a wide-ranging civilization; of the Olmec, Maya, Toltec, and Aztec dynasties, which exercised their sophisticated powers through bureaucracy and religion; of the Spanish conquistadors, whose arrival heralded death, disease, and a new vision of continental domination. Author T. R. Fehrenbach connects these threads with the story of modern-day, independent Mexico, a proud nation struggling to balance its traditions against opportunities that often seem tantalizingly out of reach. From the Mesoamerican empires to the Spanish Conquest and the Mexican Revolution, peopled by the legendary personalities of Mexican history—Montezuma, Cortés, Santa Anna, Juárez, Maximilian, Díaz, Pancho Villa, and Zapata—Fire & Blood is a “deftly organized and well-researched” work of popular history (Library Journal).

Europe's second Thirty Years' War--an epoch of blood and ashes Fire and Blood looks at the European crisis of the two world wars as a single historical sequence: the age of the European Civil War (1914-1945). Its overture was played out in the trenches of the Great War; its coda on a ruined continent. It opened with conventional declarations of war and finished with "unconditional surrender." Proclamations of national unity led to eventual devastation, with entire countries torn to pieces. During these three decades of deepening conflicts, a classical interstate conflict morphed into a global civil war, abandoning rules of engagement and fought by irreducible enemies rather than legitimate adversaries, each seeking the annihilation of its opponents. It was a time of both unchained passions and industrial, rationalized massacre. Utilizing multiple sources, Enzo Traverso depicts the dialectic of this era of wars, revolutions and genocides. Rejecting commonplace notions of "totalitarian evil," he rediscovers the feelings and reinterprets the ideas of an age of intellectual and political commitment when Europe shaped world history with its own collapse.

Asha spent her childhood as a pawn to a power hungry dragon lord. Half Dragon Seer and half Fire Mage, she battles two incompatible sides of her nature, neither of which she can fully control. Braedon, Huntsman and Fire Mage has one goal, and that is too see his sister safe from the humans who would hunt them. But it is his growing connection to the Lady Asha that draws him into danger and dragon politics that could very well see him dead. With loyalties tested and old enemies out for their blood, will the fire they produce together be enough to see them clear? And what, or who, will they have to sacrifice along the way? Fire The Blood is the third book in the Dragon Mage Series. It is a romantic fantasy with adult content and situations. Each book can be read as a stand alone but they are better enjoyed in order.

Intimista y conmovedora. Todo un hallazgo que confirma a Irène Némirovsky entre los autores europeos más destacados del siglo XX. Todo ocurre en una tranquila villa de provincias francesa, a principios de los años treinta. Silvio, el narrador, ha dilapidado su fortuna recorriendo mundo. A los sesenta años, sin mujer ni hijos, sólo le queda esperar la muerte mientras se dedica a observar la comedia humana en este rincón de Francia donde, aparentemente, nunca sucede nada. Un día, sin embargo, una muerte trágica quiebra la placidez de esa sociedad cerrada y hierática. A partir de allí, emergen uno tras otro los secretos del pasado, hechos ocultados cuidadosamente que demuestran cómo la pasión juvenil, ese ardor de la sangre, puede trastornar el curso de la vida. Como en el juego de las cajas chinas, las confesiones se suceden hasta llegar a una última y perturbadora revelación. La crítica ha dicho... «Otro hermoso legado de Irène Némirovsky.» Le Figaro «Todo el talento de Némirovsky se encuentra en esta novela: su mirada acerada y su generoso corazón [...] Estamos ante una artista con un extenso registro que por fin ha encontrado el sitio que merece en la historia de la literatura.» Lire «Una narración breve e intimista con las mejores virtudes del estilo de Némirovsky.» L'Express «Una escritora maravillosa, lúcida y brillante. Nada se le escapa.» The Times «Irène Némirovsky tiene un talento especial: la cercanía con el lector. [...] Ahí es donde es irresistible, adictiva, de manera que una vez hemos empezado una de sus novelas ya no podemos dejarla.» The Guardian

Captain Lana Fiveworlds has three ghastly problems: (1) Her beloved crewman Calder Durk''s gone missing. (2) She now has a daughter to bring up on the rickety free-trader ship, Gravity Rose. (3) Said daughter''s from a parallel dimension (and that''s only the start of her strangeness). Meanwhile, Commander Adella Vega of the Alliance navy - aka Hell-Fleet - also has three dire headaches: (1) She''s stuck at the dog-end of the galaxy on punishment duty with the Fleet''s losers, thieves and pedantic pen-pushers. (2) Large portions of her sector just went dark. (3) Something big, bad, and particularly nasty is now heading her way. Both their troubles are about to collide and multiply in the most horrific manner since the Vela Supernova Remnant detonated. Sometimes, the future''s so bright you better bring lead-lined shades. And a rail-cannon or three. Because Earth''s best space opera series just met the page-turning universe of military science fiction! --------------- ABOUT THE BOOK ''Hell Fleet'' is the 5th book in Sliding Void series. It''s a completely stand-alone adventure, not directly linked to the first four books. --------------- ABOUT THE AUTHOR Stephen Hunt is the creator of the much-loved ''Far-called'' fantasy series (Gollancz/Hachette), as well as the ''Jackelian'' series, published across the world via HarperCollins alongside their other fantasy authors, George R.R.
