A Song of Ice and Fire is a Medieval Fantasy book series written by George RR. Martin. The series spans over seven books, five written (A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, A Storm of Swords, A Feast For Crows and A Dance With Dragons) and two upcoming books (The Winds of Winter & A Dream of Spring). The story unfolds from the perspective of several characters over a great period of time and focuses on the conflicts between the different houses of the Seven Kingdoms, events in the distant lands and the ever approaching Winter. HBO adapted the books into the hit TV series Game of Thrones which is named after the title of the first book. The sixth season uses information from the upcoming books that George RR. Martin told the series creators.

Power of the Verse

Overall it's a weak verse, with even George R. R. Martin says that many of the characters would lose to Tolkien characters. Most of the characters are athletic human to peak human in strength, with the likes of Gregor Clegane and Sandor Clegane being Wall Level. The verse's strongest inhabitants cap out at Building Level, possibly higher. The strongest powerhouses in terms of sheer attack power are the Dragons, most notably Balerion the Black, and the Night King. In terms of ability diversity, however, this verse shines a bit more. For example, there is Necromancy, Earth Manipulation, warding magic/reanimation cancelling (such as with The Wall and the Three-Eyed Raven's cave), Warging (essentially possession of animals, along with limited possession of humans), Illusion Creation, face swapping, and Greensight, which is a combination of prophecy, and the abiliy to perceive events in the past and present regardless of physical distance, along with limited presence and influence in them (such as Ned hearing Bran call out to him at the Tower of Joy, and Bran warging into Wylis in the past, damaging his mind and turning him into the Hodor of present), as well as limited Dream Manipulation.
