Just when you thought your faves were safe, author George R.R. Martin is there to pull the rug out from under Song of Ice and Fire readers everywhere

“People are going to die [in Game of Thrones] who don’t die in the books,” Martin revealed to Showbiz 411 at the Writers Guild West Awards on Saturday.

Right, because there’s not nearly enough bloodshed in HBO’s award-winning series.

“So, even the book readers will be unhappy. Everybody better be on their toes,” the author warned. “David [Benioff] and D.B. [Weiss, both co-creators of the TV series] are even bloodier than I am.”

A grim thought to consider, to be sure.

The fifth season of Game of Thrones premieres April 12 on HBO.
