January Preview – Tragedy At Summerhall

 |  By 

Life and death in the blaze!

The fire’s cause is not known, but many believe it was related to King Aegon V Targaryen, who dallied with resurrecting dragons. Did his search for answers claim his own life and those of his closest friends and kin? Only the seven above may ever know, but dreams of dragons have been the downfall of many…
