Speculations that Daenerys Targaryen will follow the footsteps of her father and become the mad queen in “The Winds of Winter” are gaining traction in the rumor mill.
According to War and Politics of Ice and Fire, the Mother of Dragons will be one of the highlighted characters in the upcoming sixth novel. If the events that transpired in season 6 of HBO’s adapted series “Game of Thrones” also happens in the book, she is expected to take her gigantic army to Westeros from Essos but her arrival might spell doom to the citizens of King’s Landing.
Although Daenerys tries to bring peace and freedom to the oppressed, she is not afraid to take great lengths in order to accomplish her goals in uniting all of the kingdoms. Since she is equipped with powerful dragons and the Army of Unsullied, she has the capacity to burn those who get in her way.
There are assumptions that in order to successfully rule Westeros, she might agree to a union with Tyrion Lannister. The imp has proven to be an intelligent strategist who knows his way with history and what makes people tick. Daenerys is deemed to see his capacity to lead and serve as a powerful ally in beginning a new world.
Meanwhile, when it comes to the release date, renowned “A Song of Ice and Fire theorist BryndenBFish revealed that based on the writing pace of author George R.R. Martin, the highly anticipated novel may arrive sometime in 2017.
The writer recently took part in this year’s World Science Fiction Convention (Worldcon) in which he announced on his blog that he intended to be around for the entire duration of the event. “You’ll see me at parties, wandering the dealer’s room, enjoying the art shows, popping into other panels, attending the Hugo Awards, drinking at the bar, eating at various local restaurants and barbeque joints. And of course, I’m always glad to say hi. Especially at those parties. Parties are the soul of worldcon,” he posted.
Since there is no official announcement regarding a book launch, available information should be taken with a grain of salt.
