With season five of 'Game of Thrones' still months away and the sixth book in George R.R. Martin's 'A Song of Ice and Fire' still a big question mark, fans of Westeros and its merry cast of murderers, assassins, knights, kings and wildlings are probably hoping for something (anything!) to occupy their time. Enter 'A World of Ice and Fire,' one of the coolest companion books you will ever see.

Everything we've seen and heard of 'Game of Thrones' season 5 thus far has suggested that the 2015 run of HBO's George R.R. Martin-adapted fantasy drama will be the most book-divergent yet, and with so much ground to cover, a number of stories and characters have already fallen by the wayside. Will the same fate befall the Iron Islands, and the important Greyjoy subplots featured throughout Martin's novels?

It's been a good long while since we've heard anything from the front of 'Game of Thrones' season 5, somewhat understandable given the long road to its spring premiere, but no less taxing given its status as the most off-book season yet. To wit, new production evidence suggests Jaime Lannister at least will take a major detour from the canon for an all-new story in season 5.

Depressing though it may be, 'Game of Thrones' fans have gotten somewhat used to the fact that the series' most beloved characters have a tendency to meet their makers beyond a certain point. Season 4 finale "The Children" said goodbye to several major characters from the HBO fantasy-drama, but one actor teases that his/her character may yet return in season 5.

'Game of Thrones' Season 5: Will Sansa Run Out of Story Material Too?

Yesterday 'Game of Thrones' fans were disheartened (okay, some elated) to learn that at least one major series star would sit out season 5 for lack of story material from series creator George R.R. Martin, leading us to wonder what other characters might run out of road if the 'Song of Ice and Fire' books move too slowly. Most specifically, will Sophie Turner's Sansa Stark be the next casualty of 'Game of Thrones' season 5?

HBO's 'Game of Thrones' has alarmed readers of George R.R. Martin's books from the very beginning, if only that the fantasy-drama adaptation might catch up with, or surpass Martin's notoriously long writing process. Now, as season 5 continues shooting across the world, we may have our first major casualties of that process, as Kristian Nairn (Hodor) says he won't appear in any 2015 episodes.

If you want to see Cersei Lannister throw a bucket of ice water over her head in support of ALS awareness -- who knew she had a charitable side, right? -- or Jon Snow or even George R.R. Martin himself, watch the stars and creator of 'Game of Thrones' perform the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

All too often 'Game of Thrones' fans have had to worry that series creator George R.R. Martin's lengthy writing process might one day deprive them of a true end to the 'Song of Ice and Fire' series, but even with the HBO series angling to tell the tale in its entirety, it seems a few clever fans have already deduced the answers to some of 'Game of Thrones' biggest mysteries for themselves.

'Game of Thrones' Season 5: Why George R.R. Martin Won't Be Involved Much

One of the reasons fans of the original books have been so cool with the major deviations 'Game of Thrones' made from the novels has been the direct involvement of author George R.R. Martin. As a producer and writer on the series, he's been present to give his blessing to the showrunners and wag his fingers at aggressive fans, but not this year. Martin will be sitting out 'Game of Thrones' season 5 altogether to finish writing the sixth book in the series, 'The Winds of Winter.'
