A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms
A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms | George R. R. Martin
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY LOS ANGELES TIMES AND BUZZFEED • Taking place nearly a century before the events of A Game of Thrones, A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms compiles the first three official prequel novellas to George R. R. Martin’s ongoing masterwork, A Song of Ice and Fire. These never-before-collected adventures recount an age when the Targaryen line still holds the Iron Throne, and the memory of the last dragon has not yet passed from living consciousness.   Before Tyrion Lannister and Podrick Payne, there was Dunk and Egg. A young, naïve but ultimately courageous hedge knight, Ser Duncan the Tall towers above his rivals—in stature if not experience. Tagging along is his diminutive squire, a boy called Egg—whose true name is hidden from all he and Dunk encounter. Though more improbable heroes may not be found in all of Westeros, great destinies lay ahead for these two . . . as do powerful foes, royal intrigue, and outrageous exploits.   Featuring more than 160 all-new illustrations by Gary Gianni, A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms is a must-have collection that proves chivalry isn’t dead—yet.Praise for A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms   “Readers who already love Martin and his ability to bring visceral human drama out of any story will be thrilled to find this trilogy brought together and injected with extra life.”—Booklist   “The real reason to check out this collection is that it’s simply great storytelling. Martin crafts a living, breathing world in a way few authors can. . . . [Gianni’s illustrations] really bring the events of the novellas to life in beautiful fashion.”—Tech TimesFrom the Hardcover edition.

Just finished rewatching the whole series in prep for this weekend 🐉 🔥 ❄️ 🐺 Cannot wait. This book is a nice venture into Westeros 100 years prior to Thrones. It‘s actually 3 novellas about a hedge night and his squire, Egg. All true fans know who Egg really is which makes this book special.

Books from yesterdays thrift haul! I was excited about all of them, until I got them home and read reviews ?
The top 3 are apparently either very politically biased "history" or not informative, so those are a bust.

I know it‘s not “The Winds of Winter” but I really enjoyed these three novellas of Westeros. I got easily sucked in to the adventures of Dunk and Egg! “The Hedge Knight” was my favorite story.

I thought these hit the mark for the novella format in that they did not feel rushed or undeveloped to me.

As always, the Targaryen family tree is mind bending and I may have had to consult an actual family tree to try to keep them all straight 😂

One of the best parts about having an Amazon household set up with my mom is that sometimes she just comes across books and buys them because I‘ll be able to get them on my Kindle too... like this one!

She has never read or watched Game of Thrones but saw this for 2.99 today so she buys it so I can read it. (I assume it is on sale but I don‘t actually know...) She even wrote “happy reading” when she texted me to tell me she bought it 😜😃

Starting this tonight! I checked out Fire & Blood from the library, so I figured I should tackle this one first.

It‘s a collection of 3 novellas during the Targaryen reign, taking place 100 years before the events of ASOIAF book one, A Game of Thrones.

Such a sweet set of stories about Dunk and Egg!
I wish there were more (although if I get to pick, I would like you to finish the actual ASOIAF series first please George R R Martin).

Egg aka Aegon is serving as squire for the Hedge Knight Ser Duncan the Tall. As they serve no particular lord day to day, they often find themselves under the stars with only chewy salt beef. Yet their comradery helps get them through.

This was a fantastic read. I was initially worried in case it wouldn't have matched to A Song of Fire and Ice style/standard of writing but I was actually blown away. The detail and characters were beautiful and it made reading this book perfect for 'filler' during the dreaded wait for Winds of Winter. 😅

This was my first read by George R R Martin and I loved this book. Dunc and Egg are very easy to get attached too. I would love to read more of their adventures. Guess I'll go ahead abd start working on the Game of Thrones books since I love the show.

So this wasn't a bad book - I actually really liked the main characters, dunk and egg, and the stories themselves were good- but for some reason I just couldn't get into it like I could with the rest of the game of thrones series. I would like to read more stories with dunk and egg in but may not come back to this book again soon...

this is an excellent "filler" book, esp. if you've been on your toes for the next installment in the ASOIAF series. it's a very easy read, with tales about the legendary Ser Dunk and Egg, and even if it's not directly related to what's happening in ASOIAF, it gives you your fill of chivalry, knights, bastard heirs, politics, ladies, and dragon eggs. it helps a lot that the illustrations are gorgeous too! #holidayreads

This is a fantastic read, from the first page I felt connected to the character Dunk. And I loved the relationship between Dunk and Egg. The story overall was brilliant and it was great to be in Westeros again! If your a fan of GoT then pick this up. 5/5 ⭐️ I loved it.

This is a collection of three novellas that take place a century before the events in Song of Ice & Fire. I haven't read any of the novels that serve as the basis for GOT, so I am unable to compare them. Knight of Seven Kingdoms follows hedge Knight, Duncan & his squire, Egg. I loved this book. The new season of GOT is airing about three months later than usual. This was a great way to be in Westeros again.
