For those of you who are unfamiliar with George R.R. Martin’s novella The Ice Dragon, it’s set in the same world as GoT, and deals with a terrible dragon that leaves frozen desolation in its wake. Tor Teen is releasing a new edition of the classic work, and artist Luis Royo is providing the illustrations. As you can see, they’re truly wonderful.

And here’s the official description:
Adara liked the winter best of all, for when the world grew cold the ice dragon came. The ice dragon was a creature of legend and fear, for no man had ever tamed one. When it flew overhead, it left in its wake desolate cold and frozen land. But Adara was not afraid. For Adara was a winter child, born during the worst freeze that anyone, even the Old Ones, could remember.
Adara could not remember the first time she had seen the ice dragon. It seemed that it had always been in her life, glimpsed from afar as she played in the frigid snow long after the other children had fled the cold. In her fourth year she touched it, and in her fifth year she rode upon its broad, chilled back for the first time. Then, in her seventh year, on a calm summer day, fiery dragons from the North swooped down upon the peaceful farm that was Adara’s home. And only a winter child—and the ice dragon who loved her—could save her world from utter destruction.
