Game of Thrones Prequel – Book 6 of A Song of Ice and Fire

By October 7, 2015New Releases

I’m a huge Song of Ice and Fire fan but I missed this. How did I miss the 6th book being published?
Well probably because it’s a prequel and a compilation of three previously published novellas and not really the long awaited culmination of G.R.R Martin’s amazing epic tale of dragons and dowagers, incest and inflammatory politics, kings and kinfolk. A disappointment? Not at all, not if you’re truly a GoT junkie.

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.

So maybe not the new novel I’d hoped for but still required reading for anyone who understands the difference between A Game of Thrones and A Song of Ice and Fire and it will look very good on your shelf next to your other five instalments from Westeros.
