"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" -- Dust jacket flap.… (mais)

The tales of the exploits of Ser Duncan the Tall and his squire Egg, this collection of a trio of novellas ([b:The Hedge Knight|11970747|The Hedge Knight (The Tales of Dunk and Egg, #1)|George R.R. Martin|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1310018362s/11970747.jpg|40847773], [b:The Sworn Sword|11985631|The Sworn Sword (The Tales of Dunk and Egg, #2)|George R.R. Martin|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1397654143s/11985631.jpg|21848004], and [b:The Mystery Knight|11350430|The Mystery Knight (The Tales of Dunk and Egg, #3)|George R.R. Martin|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1397654538s/11350430.jpg|16280157]) has a light, elegant feel that brought back memories of reading the adventures of Robin Hood and stories of King Arthur's knights. The three tales are full of jousting, heraldry, and bit of romance; this chivalrous atmosphere is further elaborated by [a:Gary Gianni|1627|Gary Gianni|https://s.gr-assets.com/assets/nophoto/user/m_50x66-82093808bca726cb3249a493fbd3bd0f.png]'s delicate pen drawings, pitch-perfect pastiches of the sort of illustrations that charmed readers (including myself) of adventure novels back in the day (see [a:Michael Chabon|2715|Michael Chabon|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1515875672p2/2715.jpg]'s [b:Gentlemen of the Road|587638|Gentlemen of the Road|Michael Chabon|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1388591921s/587638.jpg|2636942] for more of Gianni's work if this tickles you).



These tales are set a century before the events of [b:A Game of Thrones|13496|A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)|George R.R. Martin|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1554191954s/13496.jpg|1466917], and much that novel and the rest of Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" series explore the aftermath of Robert's Rebellion, [b:A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms|18635622|A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms (The Tales of Dunk and Egg, #1-3)|George R.R. Martin|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1423281810s/18635622.jpg|24992268] is all about picking at the old, half-healed wounds of the earlier failed Blackfyre Rebellion, which pitted the "Black Dragon" against the "Red" in a battle for the Iron Throne. While these novellas have a far lighter tone than ASOIAF, they share that much grander tale's interest in the lingering traumas of war, and the often corrupt and perverse ways that the sins of the fathers are passed on to their sons, both literally and metaphorically.



Compared to Martin's sprawling ASOIAF series, these tales are pleasantly concise, with far fewer characters (Like Dunk, you won't need all your fingers and toes to count them all up as a rule) and much tighter timelines (all the action is usually limited to a few days, with years of time passing by unremarked in between novellas). Of the three tales included here, I most enjoyed [b:The Sworn Sword|11985631|The Sworn Sword (The Tales of Dunk and Egg, #2)|George R.R. Martin|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1397654143s/11985631.jpg|21848004], most likely due to the fact that it was the most self-contained tale, the story of Dunk and Egg's involvement in a minor but ultimately meaningful border squabble between minor lordlings, with more than a dash of romance thrown in to liven things up ("I bet she has freckles all over").



Martin's ongoing authorial concerns with the wider lore of the royal history of Westeros keeps popping up, though, and the third novella [b:The Mystery Knight|11350430|The Mystery Knight (The Tales of Dunk and Egg, #3)|George R.R. Martin|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1397654538s/11350430.jpg|16280157] in particular sometimes devolves into a mind-numbing list of names and titles.



Also in keeping with the proud ASOIAF tradition, [b:A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms|18635622|A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms (The Tales of Dunk and Egg, #1-3)|George R.R. Martin|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1423281810s/18635622.jpg|24992268] is an incomplete tale, in a brief afterword, Martin promises "more travels and more travails" for Dunk and Egg. The reader who expects to have the whole narrative of these characters explored is sure to be disappointed here; prophecies go unfulfilled, and the characters' destinies must be explored via online wikis, alas. Since I have my doubts that Martin will even finish the mainline ASOIAF story, I'm even more reluctant to anticipate further adventures of Dunk and Egg. But these tales feel far more free of the burdens of crushing reader expectation, and the overall experience of reading these tales was one of pure pleasure and escapism. I was brought right back to the feeling of curling up with an illustrated compendium of the adventures of Robin Hood as a child, and that's about as delightful a reading experience as I can imagine.

Aaah! So good to have been back to Westeros for a little while. And, of course, Martin didn't fail to deliver upon the high standards I hold him to. :-)

The main characters Dunk and Egg by themselves form an interesting pair to follow on their adventures, but as usual, the surrounding world, events and characters are incredibly compelling as well. Combine that with absolutely masterful storytelling and you're in for a treat with this prequel to A Song of Ice and Fire.

Enjoy! ( )

Important notice: ISBN-10 8580449731 / ISBN-13 9788580449730 is a compilation of the three tales of Dunk & Egg, published by Leya in February 2014 (see http://geral.leya.com.br/pt/literatura-fantastica/o-cavaleiro-dos-sete-reinos/ )

It seems that a similar title has been used for a Portuguese edition of GRRM's RRetrospective, which is a completely different book even if both happen to include "The Hedge Knight".

ISBN 9896374163 is a completely different book by Saída de Emergência, with ten tales in all, most of them from Dreamsongs I / RRetrospective
