Game of Thrones fans watch in delight as the epic battle of Lannister and Stark entangles the Seven Kingdoms. But only the sharpest notice how these houses echo Lancaster and York in the War of the Roses. Druids, Catholics, and even Zoroastrians wander through Westeros, reframing their religions for a new world of fantasy. But how medieval is Westeros? Did lady knights and pirates really battle across Europe? The audiobook Winter is Coming: Symbols and Hidden Meanings in A Game of Thrones explores all this and more, from the echoes of history to the symbols and omens our beloved characters.
Who is Jon Snow's mother and why is she a secret? What is Daenerys's real power, unknown even to her? Will these two characters share a destiny? Where is the red priestess's real Light bringer and when will it arrive? Through dreams and prophecies, imagery and allegory, the deepest secrets of the series unfold, in an exploration friendly to watchers and listeners alike.

great review and food for thought
it had been awhile since last reading the books, currently published, it was great as a refresher on all the little plots and possible outcome of future events. Plus it broke down some of the more prominent characters into there smaller parts.

Great Look Into Future of Game of Thrones
I might listen this this again. It is short and an easy listen. There is lots of thought provoking discussion and a behind the scenes look at what is really going on. Good discussion of symbolism in the books.
I especially enjoyed the discussion on Jon's parentage. This is something that my daughter and I had discussed at length and some of the theories that we had come up with were discussed as well as some that we had not thought of.
I enjoyed the discussion of prophecy of what was going to happen in the future for Game of Thrones especially in regards to the dragons.
This that was a book about other books it did not provoke extreme reactions. It was enjoyable from beginning to end.
The narrator was easy to understand which is my first priority for a audible book. I would buy this one again.
