The final cover is out for George R.R. Martin's The Ice Dragon and it looks awesome.
The Ice Dragon is an illustrated children’s book originally written by Martin in 1980 which was published again in 2007 with some detailed pencil illustrations by Yvonne Gilbert.
Martin is releasing The Ice Dragon once more with some even more outstanding artwork by Luis Royo.
The Ice Dragon is said to be set in the world of Westeros, where Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire and other novellas exist, and is a bedtime story that Old Nan would tell the Stark children.
Adara liked the winter best of all, for when the world grew cold the ice dragon came. The ice dragon was a creature of legend and fear, for no man had ever tamed one. When it flew overhead, it left in its wake desolate cold and frozen land. But Adara was not afraid. For Adara was a winter child, born during the worst freeze that anyone, even the Old Ones, could remember.
Adara could not remember the first time she had seen the ice dragon. It seemed that it had always been in her life, glimpsed from afar as she played in the frigid snow long after the other children had fled the cold. In her fourth year she touched it, and in her fifth year she rode upon its broad, chilled back for the first time. Then, in her seventh year, on a calm summer day, fiery dragons from the North swooped down upon the peaceful farm that was Adara’s home. And only a winter child—and the ice dragon who loved her—could save her world from utter destruction.
The new cover will be available on the first edition version of the book on October 21, 2015 which you can pre-order from Amazon here:
There have been no hints of any ice dragons in Westeros as of yet, but there are some rumors and fan theories about what may live beneath Winterfell.
