The author cleared the confusion between Game of Thrones: The Rise of the Dragon and Fire and Blood. He added in his blog that Rise of the Dragon should be thought of as a deluxe reference book.

In it, the most infamous family and their dragons of Westeros come in partnership with some of the incredible artists. For Fire and Blood, he added that it is a grandmaster’s account of events. It started from the conquest of Westeros of Aegon Targaryen that removed the rule of Targaryen due to the civil war.

It also involved the infamous Dance of the Dragons. However, the Rise of the Dragons will explore the same period but is displayed in a more encyclopedic form. It will be quite similar to The World of Ice and Fire from the aspect of writing. The writers of The World of Ice and Fire, Elio M. Garcia, Jr. and Linda Antonsson, helped to write Rise of the Dragons.
