Those of you who have watched the third season of Game of Thrones may still be reeling from fhe events at the Red Wedding. Well, brace yourself. The fourth season is ready to begin on Sunday, April 6th and it promises to have many more surprises, twists, turns and shocking events. If you are like me and have read ahead, you are probably waiting with anticipation to see how these events will be portrayed in the television series (and to watch our friends and family react).
If you are new to Game of Thrones, you can catch up by watching the previous three seasons.
|Season 1||Season 2||Season 3|
If you don't want to wait to get the DVDs, perhaps get started on the books.
The books are also available in eBook and eAudiobook formats. Go to the Toronto Public Library's OverDrive website to find them.
If you have read the books and are waiting, somewhat impatiently, for the sixth book to be published. George R R Martin has taken pity on us and recently released a chapter from The Winds of Winter called Mercy. Read it soon as it may not stay available forever.
For more book about the Song of Ice and Fire series (the name of the book series), check out the graphic novels and new book containing quotes from a favourite character, Tyrion Lannister.
