A Knight Of The Seven Kingdoms by George R. R. Martin

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. @goodreads




I just love Dunk & Egg! I just finished reading the two graphic novels of The Hedge Knight and I had no idea this was the book form with a third story of the duo! I just put it on hold at the library because it's George R.R. Martin :) And a friend from GR told me after the fact what it was!

I know there has to be more to it then the graphic novels, but it seems like the book was the same. I loved the first two stories in this book, and the graphic novels. The third book is awesome! I really hope to see it in graphic novel soon.

This third one is called, The Mystery Knight. Dunk and Egg are just going along minding their own business when they meet some Knights on the road. They try to talk them into going to a royal wedding. They don't seem to be who they are and they don't seem trustworthy. Who is?

Dunk thinks.. well.. maybe he should go and try to win some money for him and Egg so they can be settled nicely for some time. This leads to a big crazy adventure that involves people that are not who they say they are, people getting killed or almost killed, eggs...dragon eggs :) ... more lies and a pretty good ending.

I had no idea how much I was going to fall in love with Dunk and Egg when I bought the first two graphic novels. Now I just want to read more and more. At the end of the book Mr. Martin says to look forward to more Dunk and Egg travels! Yay! Well, he said it better, but I digress.

I do want to add this book to my collection at some time and will eagerly await the graphic novel to the third story in this book and many more. Please... many more.

If you don't like Dunk and Egg, then there is something wrong with you.. so there. Dunk & Egg, sounds like Dunkin Donuts.. I digressed again! Anyhooo.....

I recommend to ALL George R.R. Martin fans, especially those that love the Game of Thrones as this is years before that time. Fin






  1. I have read the first book in the Song of Ice and Fire series and I own all the rest so it really is a matter of reading them. But I didn't even know there were prequels until now! I am so adding this to my TBR because I need to read all these books.

    1. That is so funny because I have only read the first one as well and I own all of the current ones :) I wish we had time to do a buddy read on the second one. Yes, these prequels are so good. I read the two graphic novels of the first book and then I found this actual book as those and a third story in it! :) I think you will like them.
