The Night's King might be the biggest threat on HBO's "Game of Thrones" TV series, but his presence on the show doesn't mean he's the same Night's King referenced in George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" book series.
《权力的游戏》中，来自北境的异鬼之王一直都是剧中的最大威胁，但是在剧中出现的异鬼之王未必就是George R.R Martin原著《冰与火之歌》中马丁大叔想象的一样。
The author took to the comments section of his LiveJournal blog to set the record straight about whether the Night's King mentioned in the novels and the White Walker leader who's made two appearances on "Game of Thrones" are one and the same.
"In the books he is a legendary figure, akin to Lann the Clever and Brandon the Builder, and no more likely to have survived to the present day than they have," he writes.
For years "A Song of Ice and Fire" fans have speculated about who the Night's King in the books could be.
