House of the Dragon season two will be here next year. Here are some beautiful books to enjoy while we all wait. Impatiently.

The Rise of the Dragon: An Illustrated History of the Targaryen Dynasty 

This deluxe hardcover is packed with all-new artwork depicting the dragons, lands, and battles of the Targaryens – from Valyria’s Doom to the Dance.  It provides a valuable overview of the most powerful family in Westeros (before they weren’t).

Fire & Blood Illustrated Edition

It’s ok – you can read ahead. The Dance of the Dragons is in the middle of this massive novel; you’re also getting the history of the conquest and other important bits that will help make everything make more sense. This edition has fantastic grayscale illustrations by Doug Wheatley throughout its pages. It’s a must-have companion for House of the Dragon.
