Game of Thrones Movies In Order
A Song of Fire and Ice is the original title of the hit HBO series Game of Thrones. It closely follows three separate, but related plot lines which eventually all come together in the final stages of the book series. The first is the gathering of the creatures in the north, the second is the rise to power of Daenerys Targaryen who’s the rightful heir of the throne, and the third is the power struggle between the seven kingdoms. In all there are a total of seven books, five of which are published already. HBO has aired four seasons of Game of Thrones, and has signed a contract to produce at least two more.
It’s very important that you read the Game of Thrones books in order. Each book tells a little more of the saga and you need to read them in the order of their release date to understand what’s going on. Over the entire series of books, there is a ton of important character and plot development, which makes chronological order a necessity.

HBO is well known for their quality programming which has brought us The Sopranos and The Wire. However, Game of Thrones has recently topped the charts, beating out The Sopranos for their biggest hit series yet. Their last season averaged over 18 million viewers on all viewing platforms per episode. The widely popular TV show has been scheduled for at least another two years through 2016.
Unfortunately the series is currently uncompleted, and nobody knows how it’s going to end. That is except for the author of the books, George R.R. Martin. Many people want him to confide with someone and let them know how it ends, but he has refused numerous times. Many people feel that Martin, aged 65 should give us an insurance policy in case he doesn’t get a chance to finish the series. However, he’s refused on multiple occasions stating that he will definitely get a chance to finish it.
Interestingly enough, Martin who often reads online message boards gets a kick out of people predicting the ending of the Game of Thrones book series. He even went so far as to say that he’s read accurate descriptions of fan’s endings which closely match what he’s actually going to write. Who knows, maybe he’s even using these message boards to get ideas for himself!
Either way, as it stands now, A Song of Fire is one of the most epic TV and book sagas out there. It rivals Lord of the Rings and Star Wars, and is surely going to leave us on the ends of our seats until it has been completed. Hopefully you read the books in the correct order so you can fully grasp just how awesome this novel really is.
