Publisher's Summary

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, 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 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.

Praise for A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms

“Readers who already love Martin and his ability to bring visceral human drama out of any story will be thrilled to find this trilogy brought together and injected with extra life.”—Booklist

“The real reason to check out this collection is that it’s simply great storytelling. Martin crafts a living, breathing world in a way few authors can. . . . [Gianni’s illustrations] really bring the events of the novellas to life in beautiful fashion.”—Tech Times

“Stirring . . . As Tolkien has his Silmarillion, so [George R. R.] Martin has this trilogy of foundational tales. They succeed on their own, but in addition, they succeed in making fans want more.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Pure fantasy adventure, with two of the most likable protagonists George R. R. Martin has ever penned.”—Bustle

“A must-read for Martin’s legion of fans . . . 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.”—Publishers Weekly

Lacking performance supported by Martin's captivat

If you enjoy paying full price for half of an audiobook this is the title for you. The orator's delivery is torn between ear piercing pre-pubescent screeching and soft unintelligible mumbling. Often choosing to follow each tone with its polar opposite. This delivery requires the listener to constantly adjust the volume or risk missing out on half of the dialog. Unless you are listening amid pin drop silence you will be wholly unimpressed by the delivery of this title.

Great story

narrator was very engaging. i struggled with the volume being too quiet on the whispers and too loud on the shouts, but it wasn't a dealbreaker. i liked that it was more fairy-tale like and less dry than Martin's others'.

Good narration, nice prequel.

Narrating has acted out moments and feel to it. The story was interesting to hear about characters years before fire and ice.

Harry Lloyd made this production

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

An amazing book...

...ruined by the worst narrator I've ever heard. I would recommend just reading the book.
