Game of Thrones fans, brace yourselves, as the next series holds some shocking twists. Or so the writer of the book series, George R.R. Martin, tells Showbiz 411. If you thought that the books were keeping you one step ahead of the HBO series plot, you’ll be shocked to hear that the script is straying away from the popular novels.
So much so, that the TV show will kill off more characters than the books. Now, isn’t that like having the rug pulled out from underneath your feet?

Martin said: “People are going to die who don’t die in the books, so even the book readers will be unhappy. So everybody better be on their toes. [Co-creators] David and D.B. are even bloodier than I am.”
On the plus side, those who have read the books can’t throw out any more spoilers. On the downside, characters we thought were safe may be at risk on the show. The author also discussed the long-awaited final two books in the series, and said they’re long enough to give the TV series additional seasons.
He said: “Whatever happens with the show, I’m going to finish the books, it will be seven books.
“But each of these books are 1500 pages long and they each have enough material in them for several seasons.”
