    Official Testing Thread

    Now I was thinking about the official covers for the first 3 seasons and what they represented Season 1: Ned Stark on the Iron Throne is pretty obvious as he is the main character sitting on the 'symbol of power' in the 7 Kingdoms Season 2: A golden crown with a battle mirrored from it. Season 3: The shadow of a dragon in flight. Just checking my spoiler tag worked :P

    Fantasy and SF Recommendations: Series

    The Bartimaeus Trilogy by Jonathan Stroud Essentially its a quadrilogy with a prequel book now but the original story is a trilogy. It is based in modern London, the governments/empires are forged by magicians however the magicians don't have any power themselves, they bind demons to them and they are essentially their slaves while under their command. The plot follows a young magician named Nathaniel and a djinni(3rd class of demons, there are 5 if I remember correctly) named Bartimaeus. It is not high fantasy or Epic on the scales of LOTR, ASOIAF etc but it is a very engaging read and the first time I read the books I couldn't put them down. Those readers that like a bit of fun in their reading should definitely give this a go. If you at all like the Tyrion chapters I think you will absolutely love Bartimaeus. He has a wicked sense of humour and very enjoyable to read The trilogy is comprised of: The Amulet of Samarkand The Golem's Eye Ptolemy's Gate
