Winter Is Coming... "Game of Thrones" on HBO

So I finally finished "A Feast for Crows", the fourth book of A Song of Fire and Ice, and I have never been less enthused to read a book before.

That's not to say it isn't a good book (it is) and that the entire series isn't good (it is), but it has been TEN years since the author said we would see book five! And now HBO is making a television series based on these books and the story isn't even finished yet!!! Granted the author, George R. R. Martin, is a producer on the series and that will allow them to proceed according to his overall vision. But I don't want him to NOT write the rest of the series because he's distracted be the TV show.

Will I watch the series? Heck yeah! I can't wait to see these characters in the flesh. It really is a well written, exciting, violent, mystical yet realistic world full of intrigue, back-stabbing, honor, betrayal and even love.

Check out the teasers and the first trailer below, then follow the link to the official site for more.
