With the future of the human race at stake, a group of young men and women, bred for intelligence and obedience, embark on an expedition to colonize a distant planet. But when they uncover disturbing secrets about the mission, they defy their training and begin to explore their most primitive natures. As life on the ship descends into chaos, they are consumed by fear, lust, and the insatiable hunger for power.
As the season begins, encouraged by the Red Wedding slaughter in the Riverlands that wiped out many of their Stark nemeses, the Lannisters' hold on the Iron Throne remains intact. But can they survive their own egos as well as new and ongoing threats from the south, north and east?
"With the Army of the Dead--led by the Night King, his White Walkers and an undead dragon--bearing down on Jon and Dany and their combined forces, a denouement eight seasons in the making will be reached, answering a myriad of questions surrounding the fate of the series' protagonists. Meanwhile, Jon's true identity promises to undermine Dany's claim to the Iron Throne...and, or course, Cersei has a devious strategy of her own."--Container.
