Amazon has the Kindle version of George RR Martin/s A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms (Game of Thrones) for $3.99. Perfect stopgap between Season 7 just ending and next year's final season~

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY LOS ANGELES TIMES AND BUZZFEED • 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. 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

I read this one after reading the 5 available SOIAF books and I really enjoyed this one. It's much lighter and has the feel of stories told in nostalgia rather than the brutal dark realism of the other books in this world. Some parts are almost slapstick in their relief.

Highly recommend it if you enjoyed the SOIAF fantasy style but want a change of pace.

Was watching season 3 episode 3 or so and I believe Ser Duncan's name came up as the Lord Commander of the Kingsguard. Is it the same character?

I'd say worth the money or a trip to the library at least. I just wanted to comment on how I added his account on facebook and the absolute shitfest that takes place on every post on that account about him not having the series done yet is entertaining. Poor guy.

If he wants people to lay off, finish the #@!&$! book already.

These are great stories. I highly recommend buying this collection.

GRRM's older sci-fi stuff is good, too. Some of his work was out of print for a number of years, but thanks to GoT it's back in circulation. Most public libraries should have it, but there may be wait-lists.

If you're a fan of ASOIAF, or the TV show that has had nothing to do with the books since at least season 3, I strongly recommend Preston Jacobs' YouTube channel. He's a genius, and it will forever change the way you think of the saga.

Not going to start this series of books until it is finished. I've already gone through that 2-decade long battle with the Wheel of Time Series and ended up having to reread them all 2-3 times just to remember what happened - not a horrible thing, but it started feeling like a chore instead of enjoyment.

Would this book be safe to buy/read, since its a prequel?

I came across three other titles with the same description of A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms: The Hedge Knight, The Sworn Sword, and The Mystery Knight. What gives?

Edit: Found the answer to my question. The 3 other titles are the individual novellas contained within A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms.

This book is standalone, since it's a series of stories taking place before the main series. Though I think it would be much more enjoyable for someone who had read at least some of the books or watched the show.

And, fwiw, I think the first three books have satisfying story arc on their own.
