Seven book recommendations for "Game of Thrones" fans

At The Barnes & Noble Book Blog Nicole Hill tagged seven choice gift ideas for fans of George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series and its HBO adaptation, Game of Thrones.

One entry on the list:
The Blood of Gods, by Conn Iggulden

Even if you’ve missed Iggulden’s Julius Caesar–focused Emperor series up to this point—which, shame on you, if so—you can revel in this bloody, treacherous tale of the aftermath of Caesar’s murder. King’s Landing isn’t what you’d call a safe neighborhood, but Rome wasn’t built in a day—it was built upon years and years of unbridled ambition, ruthless quests for revenge, and sweaty pride. And even the most unsympathetic characters here are more likable than Joffrey!
