Before Tyrion Lannister and Podrick Payne there was Dunk and Egg. A young, naïve but courageous hedge knight, Ser Duncan the Tall towers above his rivals – in stature if not experience.Tagging along with him is his diminutive squire, a boy called Egg – whose true identity must be hidden from all he and Dunk encounter: for in reality he is Aegon Targaryen, and one day he will be king.
Improbable heroes though they be, great destinies lay ahead for Dunk and Egg; as do powerful foes, royal intrigue, and outrageous exploits.
A KNIGHT OF THE SEVEN KINGDOMS brings together for the first time the first three official prequel novellas to George R.R. Martin’s ongoing masterwork, A Song of Ice and Fire, set in an age when the Targaryen line still holds the Iron Throne, and the memory of the last dragon has not yet passed from living memory.
Featuring more than 160 illustrations by Gary Gianni, one of the finest fantasy artists of our time, this beautiful volume will transport readers to the world of the Seven Kingdoms in an age of bygone chivalry.

A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms
A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms is a collection of three novellas that takes place roughly 100 years before the events of Martin's Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire) novels and tells the story of the adventures of "Dunk" and "Egg" during a period where the Iron Throne was still held by the Targaryen's. The stories bring in a whole new perspective to the land of Westeros and like any great prequel offers the reader more in putting the entire story together. As usual, Martin has a way of quickly making you become invested in his characters and with all the usual twists and turns that makes Game of Thrones so captivating, leaves you hanging on for more.
A great read for anyone that has been pulled into the world Martin has created and coupled with the fantastic illustrations, the story is brought to life in a whole other dimension. - Paul
