Game of Thrones preview

Game of Thrones is the tv adaption of the acclaimed fantasy saga A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin. It’s produced by HBO and it will premiere April 17. The books themselves are a true masterpiece, a reference in the gender; Martin’s writing is astonishing, the story compelling and addictive and the characters as real as it gets. And it brings just about the right amount of fantasy to allow even those who don’t appreciate the gender to enjoy it anyway.

The story revolves around the Stark family and how they are pulled into a conflict for the rule of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, the fictional realm in which the story is set. Lord Eddard Stark is one of the King’s closest friends and to help him he will fall into the palace intrigues that aim to put the Lannisters, another very powerful family, in power. As we go deep into the rabbit hole, however, the ramifications of the story are so full of twists and surprises that leave the reader (and, hopefully, the tv audience) longing for more. HBO has been releasing regularly previews and trailers, that honestly have left me mouth-watering for the premiere. This video below is the latest and was released this week.
