George R.R. Martin’s “The Ice Dragon” Gets Animated in Warner Bros. Movie

But the story is set in Westeros. After all, she’s just a little bit older ic our main character Adara and is also quite fond of a dragon or three as well.

Even if only for the beautiful illustrations, this short story can definitely be recommended for fans of the Song of Ice and Fire series who cannot get enough of Martin’s writing.

Liked Adara and her being cold and quiet about everything but her ice dragon. Ixe just don’t like how Adara, who was never even close with her own family, would suddenly make them her priority when the Ice Dragon was consistently the only one thing she ever cared about.

I have now paid hardcover novel price for a short story. The main character is a clever little girl named Adara who lives on a small farm with her grrm, brothers and sisters after her mother died giving birth to her I told you, it’s GRRM, so just be happy she wasn’t raped or tortured first.
