    5 Books To Read While You Wait For Game Of Thrones

    It's official-- winter is here and George R.R. Martin's sixth installment of A Song of Ice and Fire series will NOT be released before the sixth season premier of Game of Thrones. If you're anything like us, aka a Game of Thrones super fan, the suspense is killing you. What are you supposed to do while you wait?! Check out these 5 epic reads to hold you over.

    Lastland (The War of Princes, Book 4) by A. R. Ivanovich


    A seven-hundred-year war, a devastating attack and two armies uniting for one final showdown. In Lastland, the final installment in A.R. Ivanovich's The War of Princes series, Prince Varion and Katelyn come together to defeat Prince Raserion and save the people of Haven. But as Katelyn is thrown in the frontlines of war, both on and off the battlefield, she realizes the fate of the Kingdom of Lastland lies in her hands. Let Katelyn be the strong leading female in your life while you wait for the return of Khaleesi!

    City of Blades (The Divine Cities) by Robert Jackson Bennet


    The city of Voortyashtan lies in ruins now that the god of war is dead. The new military occupiers are creating more violence and bloody uprisings than ever (they give the Sparrows a run for their money), leading General Turyin Mulaghesh on an investigation to either save the world-- or destroy it. Robert Jackson Bennett's City of Blades is the violent and expertly plotted sequel to City of Stairs

    Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard

    The struggle between the growing rebel army and the blood-segregated world continues to escalade as Mare is pitted against the darkness in her soul. The royal court tries to use Mare's special powers as a weapon, leading to her decision to flee the kingdom. But as she recruits Red-and-Silver fighters to join the oppression she begins to wonder if she is becoming the exact monster she is trying to defeat. Glass Sword will give you all the betrayal and bloodshed that you're missing from GOT.

    Lords, Lairds, and Legends: Magical Tales of Timeless Passion by Allie Mackay and Sue-Ellen Welfonder

    If the premiere of Game of Thrones just seems too far away, fill your time with the four full-length novel set Lords, Lairds and Legends. These novels are filled with bold heroes and ladies, medieval battles, and steamy romance. Not to mention some dark magic, ala The Red Priestess, for this set is dark and full of terrors.

    Night of the Bold by Morgan Rice

    Who's ready to have some dragons back in their life? Night of the Bold by Morgan Rice will give you a fair dose of dragons, trolls, and of course, brutal armies. Just like in Game of Thrones, this enthralling story is full of royal families and complex characters battling to the death. This epic battle between Kings and Sorcerers tells the story of love, deception, ambition and betrayal.
