Jon Snow has become the 998th Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch, and one of the people fighting for the throne, Stannis Baratheon, goes to fight off the invading wildlings.
As well as that, Brienne of Tarth has been sent to find Sansa Stark, who is hiding under protection of her mother’s friend.
The final book so far, A Dance with Dragons, is included in the fifth and sixth series of Game of Thrones, and other characters’ points of views are included, such as Brienne of Tarth, Victarion Greyjoy and Kevan Lannister.
By this point, the TV series began to overtake the books, and the series was wrapped after eight seasons.
The creators, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, received special advice from Martin about upcoming storylines, many of which are said to be included in later books.
