Game of Thrones finale season 8 has left its audience in denial. To begin with, the Mother of Dragon dies. But, recently, George R. R. Martin has announced the release of “The Winds of Winter,” the sixth novel of “A song of ice and fire.” According to Wikipedia, there are a total of 6 books in the series of A song of ice and fire. These are:

  • A Game of Thrones
  • A Clash of Kings
  • A Storm of Swords
  • A Feast for Crows
  • A Dance with Dragons
  • The Winds of Winter
  • A Dream of Spring

According to George (the writer of a song of ice and fire)’s twitter, it seems like he is working hard on the forthcoming part of the novel: the winds of winter. For the most part, it clears the idea for the audience, whether or not, will there be a season 9 of Game of Thrones?

A Dance with Dragons explained!

For those who are excited about the upcoming novel, the winds of winter, a recap break is important! To begin with, the fifth book of “A Song of Ice and Fire” covers season 5 where Jon, Stannis, and Daenerys meet their ways. Apart from this, in this book, Theon Greyjoy goes through an exquisite level of torture at the hands of Ramsay Bolton. Also, the Greyjoy sister running to save Theon, however, ditching him at the edge to save the iron salt throne makes the story exciting.

What is “The Winds of Winter” new release date?

Due to the obvious impact of COVID-19 all over the world, George R. R. Martin has also declared that the release of the Winds of Winter is postponed. Although the new release date has not been declared yet, George has informed his fan-following that he is continuously working during the quarantine period via twitter. In the meantime, some audience is giving a thought of rewatching the Game of Thrones season 5 in order to repolish their memory of the plot of “A Dance of Dragons.”

For those readers, the series of “A Song of Ice and Fire” is available for purchase on Amazon Kindle. 

Fire and Blood 2 Vs. The Winds of Winter Release

To the reader’s surprise, the Game of Thrones production has exquisitely bent the storyline as per audiences’ interest. However, the original fire and blood plot are yet to come. In 2018, George R. R. Martin published Fire and Blood part 1. Most importantly, Fire and Blood manuscript comes out of that of, The World of Ice and Fire.

Earlier this year, George opened up about the fact that the release of both fire and blood and the winds of winter are clashing. The reason being, the publishing corporation is demanding Fire and Blood part 2 in the first place. However, the audience is highly excited to view “the winds of winter” as the story will open major facts about Azor Ahai.

At the beginning of season 7, Gilly is seen curiously reading about Azor, however, the plot had nothing to do with the character. Although, there is a rumor running around that the story of Azor will lead to Game of Thrones season 9. But, that is only true when the production house confirms it, which it hadn’t.

What is “The Winds of Winter” expected plot?

We cannot assume the plot of “the winds of winter” to be similar to the Game of Thrones season 6. To begin with, some followers of the novel series put their opinion that the next novel will be based on Azor Ahai. According to the character’s background, it will take the viewers 5000 years back from the present where some new twists and turns will unfold. 

In the Clash of Kings, quote “There will come a day after a long summer when the stars bleed and the cold breath of darkness falls heavy on the world. In this dread hour, a warrior shall draw from the fire a burning sword. And that sword shall be Lightbringer, the Red Sword of Heroes, and he who clasps it shall be Azor Ahai come again, and the darkness shall flee before him.”

This may be related to what’s forthcoming in the next season. 


Without a doubt, the audience is very excited to view “A song of ice and fire” from a brand-new or original viewpoint of George R. Martin. In conclusion, stay tuned to our platform for more information.
