George R.R. Martin / Game of Thrones
George R.R. Martin, author of the "Song of Ice and Fire" fantasy series that is the basis of the television series "Game of Thrones", gestures during his masterclass at the Neuchatel International Fantastic Film Festival (NIFFF) in Neuchatel July 10, 2014. |

Even though the upcoming installment of George R. R. Martin's novel series is not set to release until after the sixth season of "Game of Thrones," fans do not have to worry too much about book spoilers in the episodes to come.

It was reported that season 6 of the HBO series may contain some material that have yet to be presented in the novel series. However, the upcoming season will not entirely spoil the upcoming book titled "The Winds of Winter."

Martin's most recent post on his live journal account answered the question of will the show spoil the novels. He answered, "Maybe. Yes and no. Look, I never thought the series could possibly catch up with the books, but it has. The show moved faster than I anticipated and I moved more slowly. There were other factors too, but that was the main one. Given where we are, inevitably, there will be certain plot twists and reveals in season six of GAME OF THRONES that have not yet happened in the books."

It was stated that since the writers of the series made some changes of their own that strayed from the original source material, even the minimal alterations will cause some differences between the HBO series and the upcoming "The Winds of Winter."

Meanwhile, fans expect that some parts of the novel series will still be followed in the episodes of "Game of Thrones" season 6. It was reported that Daenerys Targaryen's storyline from the series will follow that of the novels.

The past season of "Game of Thrones" ended with the mother of dragons in the middle of Dothraki men on horses. In addition, trailers for the upcoming series gave fans a look at the dynamics between Daenerys and Dothrakis. With that, there are theories that this will bring her back to Vaes Dothrak or even Westeros.

"Game of Thrones" season 6 is expected to premiere on HBO this Apr. 24.
