They all look great. Arya's look for season 5 is simply awesome, it's very unique and bad ass - love the hair style and the costume.

I'm so tempted to go out and buy this, but I'm still reeling from last year when I watched all of the promotional material and they showed wayyyy too much. Hoping to start this season with a clean slate...must not give in to temptation.

There is a lot of promotional material out there for Season 5. I had to put a stop to my rampant curiosity towards it. Even though HBO is really good about not giving away too many big reveals, I don't want to tempt fate either.

Besides, April isn't that far away, and one could rewatch the previous seasons in the meantime, to marathon up to this year's premiere. :)

Purple eyes?
Emilia Clark is smoking hot, but I don't really understand why the show didn't apply the purple eyes to the Targaryens. Was it due to the fact that contacts would interfere with their acting? Like would it come out if Daenerys had to cry in a scene? Sorry I don't really have much of an experience with contacts and that seems the only reasonable answer to why the show didn't make her eyes purple.

Re: Purple eyes?
Yeah, they tried, and said the contacts hindered the actors ability to convey emotion. It's in a commentary on the blu-ray, or so says: http://gameofthrones.wikia.com/wiki/House_Targaryen

I think there was also something about how the colour really didn't look true on film.

Damn, this show has a good looking cast, and they look even better without massive airbrushing. That's my only very minor complaint with these. Too much airbrushing! Still, it's very cool to see not one but four unique covers.

I think I'm looking forward to how they adapt Arya's story the most this season. Even when they vary from Arya's story arc from the books, I always enjoy watching Maisie work her magic. I think she does such a good job that it often feels like book Arya was based on her portrayal of the character instead of the other way around. But that would require a TARDIS and would create a paradox (wibbly wobbly, timey wimey stuff if we want to get technical).

Wait. You don't have a TARDIS, do you?!

[Sorry for the off-topic comment, but the book is very old and I don't think you've mentioned it in the blog recently]

How accurate is the information in the Tabletop RPG book of A Song of Ice and Fire after FEAST and DANCE?
I've been wanting to ask this because fans have been debating the military strength of the regions in Westeros for more than a decade, including Elio and Linda.

Thousands of your fans play RPGs and strategy games based on your books everyday, it would mean a lot to us if you could help us put this debate to rest.

Only the novels are canon.

Very nice!
Arya's been growing, and Jon is looking older, Dany losing a certain childishness, and Tyrion being much more manly and mature. The season should be great. Love it!

I love these and must have them all! I love how beautiful Kit, Maisey and Emelia look, and Peter is absolute perfection! Counting down until season 5 when I can tweet "And now our watch begins"!!!!!! Thank you Mr. Martin for the best book series I have ever fallen head over heels for!

The covers this year all look fantastic! It’s hard to believe how things have changed since the first season for all of them. And the pictures of Jon and Arya/Kit and Maisie inside the editions are just lovely as well, though Needle looks so tiny next to Longclaw! It’d be nice to see those two together in the show or books again too, but perhaps that’s just a dream for spring.

Dying in Magic
I love how you write especially your ability to present a character's viewpoint so realistically. Reading about each character's viewpoint, conflicts and weaknesses makes even the so called 'evil' characters very human and their actions understandable. Life is truly grey - not black and white.

I also love the magic associated with Bran, the wierwoods,direwolves, dragons etc. All of that is truly magical. The one aspect of magic in asoiaf that I'm not a fan of is when folks die and then come back. Hopefully that will be more 'magically realistic' in twow or perhaps dead people can stay dead ;)

Covers
I love them all! I like the tapestry they used behind Dany. It looks like dragon scales.

Wish there was one with Jaime, and Brienne, and Cersei and Bran and Hodor and Ghost and Edd and Sam and Oberyn....

First thought that came to my mind when seeing cover with Maisie: Lyanna :) Nice, all of them. Not sure if we can get one of these in our country (probably not), but if so, I wouldn't hesitate.

So glad Arya is getting some publicity for once! Maisie is looking amazing.
