I enjoyed this a lot!
I love this universe and it was really fun to read some light-hearted fun stories set in it.
Dunk and Egg are great characters and i loved reading about their mishaps and adventures. ( )

The first story started with some promise. The characters were likeable, the action and conflict were acceptable. The second story was by turns dismal, silly, stupid and then boring. Gave it up there. ( )

tre racconti abbastanza scorrevoli.
Avrei preferito un seguito.
Si lascia leggere. ( )

three prequel novellas detailing the adventures of hedge knight Dunk (Sir Duncan the Tall) and his squire Egg (Aegon Targaryen as a boy, who would later become King Aegon V the Unlikely). it lacks the intricacy, and the depth, of the main series, because it's written to be a YA adventure series, not a grim epic, but of its own kind it's a lovely wee thing, with numerous line drawings, a loose meandering structure to suit the subject matter, and a charming relationship between the young man from the slums of King's Landing and the small boy from the Targaryen royal line who learn from each other as they wander from one end of Westeros to the other, 100 years before the events of the main series A Song of Ice and Fire.

Disambiguation notice
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

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"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.… (more)
