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. Before Tyrion Lannister and Podrick Payne, there were Dunk and Egg. A young, naïve, 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 (hidden from all he and Dunk encounter) is Aegon Targaryen.

A lovely story to illustrate how ones birth does not limit what is true of chivalry. Harry Lloyd’s narration of this book was amazing. He captures the heart and soul of Sir Duncan the Tall

  • Of Dice and Men

In Of Dice and Men, David Ewalt recounts the development of Dungeons & Dragons from the game’s roots on the battlefields of ancient Europe, through the hysteria that linked it to satanic rituals and teen suicides, to its apotheosis as father of the modern video-game industry. As he chronicles the surprising history of the game’s origins (a history largely unknown even to hardcore players) and examines D&D’s profound impact, Ewalt weaves laser-sharp subculture analysis with his own present-day gaming experiences.

This was my first adventure in a book about AD&D and it journey. I enjoyed the read and the mixing of the authors research and excerpts of his game mixed in. You can Agree or disagree with his view points as all gamers are unique but that in its core is the beauty of this book.

It had been years since I picked up a Drizzit novel and what a book to get back into the series with. A wonderfully crafted story, bring the companions from the hall back to realms. As I listened to each of the journeys of Catti-brie, Bruenor and Regis spread out across Toril, with their new reincarnated lives. What I really liked was how each of the hero’s struggled with who they were, being the driving force of who they were to become this time around. This is more a book of family then rebirth. #Audible1
