Full of daring theories and fascinating tales from the World of Ice and Fire, Game of Thrones: The Masterminds of Westeros delves deep into the behind-the-scenes politics of Westeros through the eyes of the kingdoms' most skillful strategists - Lord Varys and Petyr Baelish. The extent to which these characters have shaped the game of Westeros is often misconceived among the fandom. This book aims to walk you through the intricacies and subtleties of their many risky gambles and to extrapolate their hidden motives and desires. Exploring fan theories, rumors, and hypotheses built on substantial evidence from A Song of Ice and Fire, Game of Thrones: The Masterminds of Westeros will provide you with a wholly different perspective on the events of the show and the books, bringing the two main players of the Game of Thrones back to light.

A perfect gift for fans of the TV show as well as the book series, Game of Thrones: The Masterminds of Westeros serves as both an introduction and 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 start!

Absolutely horrible narration

The story is fine. Similar to many popular fan theories, as well as some new ones, if far fetched.

The problem is the narration. If you can’t pronounce the names in the most popular show in history, perhaps you should watch a few episodes.

Of course that might be a bit much to ask from someone that can’t tell the difference between mummers and murmurs, thorns and thrones, etc…

This is Known

I love to hear about the masterminds of Westeros, but this book was only just offered to me in 2020. I have known this information for several years now... The narrator was good but not great as the pronunciation of names is now well known but he still mangled several names. I wish it would have been longer and had given us new information only GRRM knows. If you are new to A Song of Ice and Fire and the theories are yet unknown to you, then this is a great read after reading the series for the 1st time.
