Princess of Thrones: it’s more than a kissing book (peeking allowed)
'It’s the book my father used to read to me when I was sick and I used to read it to your father, and today I’m going to read it to you…'
It’s a common tale. Boy is sick. Boy visits Grandpa. Boy asks Grandpa to read him a story. Grandpa whips out the old Game of Thrones. What?! No?
Well dreams have just become reality with Shawn Kohne and Todd Spence’s truly childhood altering mash-up of William Goldman’s The Princess Bride and George RR Martin’s Game of Thrones. It contains no sports like the pre-pubescent Fred Savage clearly anticipated, but instead an awful lot of fighting, torture, revenge, monsters; oh and ‘true love’. And by 'true love', we mean copious amounts of nudity.
Coinciding with the official launch of Games of Thrones latest season 5 trailer ‘The Wheel’, we’ll let you decided which version your prefer.
'Jesus Grandpa what did you read me this for?' Yeah, Grandpa. Why?
