A century before A GAME OF THRONES, two unlikely heroes wandered Westeros…

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.

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 lie 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.


'In the grand epic fantasy tradition, Martin is by far the best … tense, surging, insomnia-inflicting' Time Magazine

‘Martin’s style is so vivid that you will be hooked within a few pages’ The Times

‘The sheer mind-boggling scope of this epic has sent other fantasy writers away shaking their heads …Its ambition: to construct the Twelve Caesars of fantasy fiction, with characters so venomous they could eat the Borgias’

‘The writing is always powerful…' SFX

  • Hmm an OK read

    By birby5
    Liked the story and characters but it seriously needs an edit. How many times do we need a review on where dunk and egg came from I mean I just read it in th previous chapters, they are not episodes from a show to do a quick reminder. So I did skip through some of this as it was too repetitive. Oh and what's with th ending pity th boys story was not completed. Not sure if I will buy th next one to see what dunkalunk gets up to.

  • Disappointed

    By Huckaknees
    Not to the usual standard of George R R Martin's energetic and descriptive style. Story seemed a bit thin. Still, an easy read.
  • Extremely Enjoyable

    By Blondieschick
    Really entertaining read. George really shows off his writing and story telling prowess. He really knows how to write characters that are easy to relate to and fall in love with.
  • Dunk the lunk as thick as a castle wall....

    By MacyMace
    I was worried about this seeing how the other books seemed to taper off into a "I'm bored now" but I loved this and just like everyone else wanted to know about the a prince called Egg who squired for a knight called Dunk. Dunk and Egg live on....
