&bull;&#160; i> b> b>Taking place nearly a century before
the events of A Game of Thrones, A Knight of the 'seven Kingdoms
i>compiles the first three official prequel novellas to George R. R.
Martin&rsquo;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.
A young, na&iuml;ve but ultimately courageous hedge knight, 'ser Duncan the Tall towers above his rivals&mdash;in stature if not experience. Tagging along is his diminutive squire, a boy called Egg&mdash;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
[Gianni&rsquo;s illustrations] really bring the events of the
novellas to life in beautiful fashion.&rdquo;&mdash;Tech
They succeed on their own, but in addition, they succeed in
making fans want more.&rdquo;&mdash;Kirkus Reviews i>

a rousing prelude to [his] bestselling 'song of Ice and Fire saga . . . rich in human drama and the colorful worldbuilding that distinguishes other books in the series.&rdquo;&mdash;Publishers Weekly i> b>
