Full of daring theories and fascinating tales from the world of Ice and Fire, The Gods of Game of Thrones: A Critical Look is a thorough examination of the deities and demigods of Westeros and Essos. While HBO’s blockbuster has omitted many intricacies of religious affiliations in A Song of Ice and Fire, this audiobook will delve deep into the story woven by George R.R. Martin to explore the many facets of religion in Game of Thrones. Is there only one God or many? Is magic real or just a shadow of religion? Are prophecies a lie or do they come from the gods in some ethereal plane, positioning their pieces to vie for supremacy? And what makes one think that these are truly gods to be worshiped, and not demons to be feared? A perfect gift for fans of the TV show as well as the book series, The Gods of Game of Thrones: A Critical Look serves as both an introduction and an accompaniment to the existing media. If you want to find out how the world of Ice and Fire came to be, or what might happen next, this is the place to be! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Paul Banks.
