Episode 6 scene 20
Author George R.R. Martin is safely tucked away in his own Red Keep working on the sixth installment to his A Song of Ice and Fire series, the long, long-awaited, The Winds of Winter. However, he did take a minute to post a totally radical cover from the illustrated version of the second book in the series, A Storm of Swords. You can feast thine eyes upon it down beloweth.
The world could use some color right about now. Very excited to debut the cover and some exclusive art from the illustrated edition of A STORM OF SWORDS with beautiful new lithograph like illustrations from Gary Gianni, coming Nov 3! https://t.co/uc0mfDFE56 pic.twitter.com/Tp6WHHacaE

I absolutely loved the show, yes past-tense (I still love it, but sometimes it’s hard to watch the older seasons knowing what it becomes). However, while I know many of the differences between the books and the show, I have never read the books, so it’s pretty cool to see the type of art and depiction of the characters that book readers had to go on before the show was even a thought in Benioff and Weiss’ minds.
I’m going to assume that the Breaker of Chains herself, Daenerys Targaryen is one of the three women pictured in the photo. And if I had to bet I would say it’s the woman feeding the dragons. I could very well be wrong, as I mentioned, never read a page.
