NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - 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.

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY LOS ANGELES TIMES AND BUZZFEED

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, na ve 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.

  • ANother masterpiece

    by on

    This book started a little slow for the first 20-30 pages but once it got going it was amazing, reading about the rulers and people that they talk about and some who are very old and dead or dying in the ASoIaF. George R R Martin is an amazing story-teller and the way he writes is such a pleasure to read it's hard to read works from other writer after reading one of his books. If you enjoy A Song of Ice and Fire then you will definately enjoy this book and it's great that all 3 books are combined in one book. Highly recommended.
