    Very good Application.

    Its full of information.
    Its based on the books, with the only mention of the TV Show being the Actors/Atcresses who play the Characters.
    I just finished Book 3 and there were only 2 spoilers (3 but only cause one was repeated).
    The spoilers seemed very minor.
    I did have the Spoiler Tab set correctly.
    Overall, its definately worth the purchase.

    Great

    Great app! Provides all the info on characters and locations without spoiling the story. Helps to keep the characters straight (which family they belong to, who's related to who, etc.). The maps are interactive and provide a great birds eye view of everything. I really like the illustations and bio for each character. You can scroll through the list of characters, or search by name. Highly reccomend to fans of the series. Great app, great job!!

    I would recommend this to anyone who reads or watches Game of Thrones,

    The books (thounsands or pages) have so many characters and locations, this is a great help. It answered a lot of questions for me. A good referance for the World of Ice and Fire devotee.

    Great info, but ...

    A wonderful guide to the Ice and Fire world — if this database were a book it would be as thick as anything else in the series — but seems to take up all the space for Apps on my original Nook Color. With this installed, I can't install anything else. I love it but I think it's going to have to go.

    Like having a story map of Westeros and Beyond

    Love this app. I'm new to Game of Thrones. I'm horrible at keeping tacking of multiple characters. This series has so many it's sometimes overwhelming. This app has been a wonderful tool to keep it all straight. Easy to navigate. Illustrations are fun too.

    Not quite comprehensive but still helpful

    I've looked up a few people/places that are not listed, but mostly it has been helpful to jog my memory of people/places mentioned previously that I have forgotten.

    One minor annoyance, on my Nook HD+ the app always crashes the first time I open it, but it fine thereafter.

    Great app! Love the ease of use!

    This is a great way to keep all the characters straight when you get deep in the series. Extra information is everywhere beyond what the books have, without going into spoiler areas.
