    Description

    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 were 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 (hidden from all he and Dunk encounter) is Aegon Targaryen. Though more improbable heroes may not be found in all of Westeros, great destinies lie ahead for these two...as do powerful foes, royal intrigue, and outrageous exploits.

    A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms is a must-have collection that proves chivalry isn't dead - yet.

    What separates Lloyd from Dotrice

    There is no argument that Martin's writing style is excellent for listening and not all fictional works are. Some are awkward when read aloud. However, it does make a difference who reads it. Maybe it's the breathing, the phrasing or whatever--but listening to Dotrice feels like you're sitting at your grandfather's feet while he tells you a story. Maybe some people prefer that. But others like me, not so much. It just gets in the way when you are listening to the reader rather than the story.

    Lloyd literally disappears in the narrative and you forget you are being read to. The immersion is that good.

    WELL MEET

    I'M GOING TO CLOUT YOU IN THE EAR.
    This is three novellas of which THE HEDGE KNIGHT is the first and best. This is one of my favorite stories of all time. I first read it in my beautiful First Edition of Legends by Robert Silverberg (1998). If you can find a copy, get it, it is beautiful. I also believe audible has it in several volumes. It is a great story of chivalry and life in Westros from the perspective of someone who does not have loyal blood. Dunk is one inch shy of being seven feet tall. He is not extremely bright, but he is one lovable character. This being written by GRRM, who kills off main characters without blinking, helps build the suspense. This story alone makes the purchase worth it. I also love the language.

    HARD THINGS GROW HARDER IF YOU PUT THEM OFF.
    The next two novellas are THE SWORN SWORD and THE MYSTERY KNIGHT. Though they are not as good as the first story, which would be hard to beat anyway, they are worth listening to. The main characters Dunk and Egg are characters you love and respect. Unlike most of GRRM's characters they have stayed good and not disappointed,by going to the dark side. No, grey areas, they are always true. These two stories by themselves I would give each four stars. The MYSTERY KNIGHT, did get a little muddied with all the house names and royalty names and I did get a little lost a times. Still good though.

    ARE YOU BLIND OR ONLY STUPID?
    At the end we get a promise from GRRM, that these stories are going to continue. Even though each story can be read on it's own, you get more out of them if you have read all of them and in order. So, to stay up with future stories, you will want to get these.

    WORDS ARE WIND
    I thought the narrator was excellent, he did excellent voices. At times he did do some whispering, in which he really whispered. There were some sentences that I missed. I don't know if that was his mistake or the producers. I was listening over my big rig's radio. Might be different at home or in your car.

    BY CHANCE WE'LL MEET AGAIN SOMEDAY

    I was worried about the reader...

    because it wasn't Roy Dotrice. But I shouldn't have been. Excellent narration and an excellent story. This is a great addition to The Song of Ice and Fire stories while we wait FOREVER for the next book!

    Martin is a genius

    I usually avoid prequels as they are usually an attempt to further capitalize on a popular series and not that good. Not so here.
    A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms is a stand alone, beautifully realized tale of bravery, honor, friendship and betrayal. Some of the best action scenes I have read/heard can be found here along with a bit of intrigue.
    The narration was very well done.
    I will listen to this title again and look forward to the continuation of this prequel almost as much as I yearn for The Winds of Winter!

    good book overall

    The story is interesting, but sometimes Harry Lloyd speaks VERY softly when saying what Dunk is thinking, which means I miss a lot. I either keep the volume all the way up, and get my ears blown out when he uses a high squeeky voice, or I miss a lot of internal dialogue.

    A Don Quixote of sorts in the Seven Kingdoms

    Meet the Don Quixote of Westeros, Ser Duncan the Tall! A man that believe in Valour! Honour! Courtesy! and Chivalry! In three excellent novellas George R.R. Martin introduces readers to a very different Westeros through the eyes of this recently made hedge knight, who seems not to be able to break from his upbringing in Flee Bottom, King's Landing. Ironically he has a bald 10 year old boy as a squire, that is in some ways a real Sancho Pancha. Egg, as he is called affectionately by his family, also comes from King's Landing, but not from Flee Bottom. Thus we as listeners are introduced to a very odd pair. A big oaf and a little clever guy, almost like Asterix and Obelix, but with the difference that "Obelix" is in charge and "Asterix" has to dutifully obey. No wonder the refrain "Dunk the lunk thick as a castle wall" echoes every now and again in the novellas!

    Martin turns the expectations that you might have of a knight on its head, making these stories very likeable. Yet, I have one qualm with the book, it ends with a promise, by George R.R. Martin... that more might be coming. That is the problem with these stories, they are like an introduction to an adventure that is not yet completed. When will Dunk and Egg get to the Wall for instance?

    In every sense, this book is a typical George R.R. Martin book. It contains three excellent stories, but you can help feeling that it is currently still unfinished. There might be more coming and you the listener has to.... wait!

    Harry Lloyd narrated the three novellas very well. I am not so used to his accent and voice, but after the first novella it became easier to listen to him. By not using Roy Dotrice, it helps to get a different view on the seven kingdoms.

    For Song of Ice and Fire fans, this is a definite must listen. It is definitely not a waste of a credit. If you don't want to start reading or listening through the whole Song of Ice and Fire series, maybe this is a good place to start. This book comes highly recommended for its entertainment value and for answering some of the "historical" questions of a Song of Ice and Fire.

    Hard to hear

    The reader was almost impossible to hear at points. I listen while driving though, so maybe with headphones you can hear his whispering. each chapter starts out dry and a bit confusing, but by the end I'm hooked and wondering what happens next.

    Good, Not Great

    The story gives some history of Westeros but doesn't offer anything of necessity. I only recommend if you need a GoT fix until book 6 is released.

    The performance is really good however, Harry Lloyd would read a bit too quiet at times for a line or two. It made it rather difficult to hear while driving but he didn't do it long enough to make any real negative impact. Lloyd's narration and acting is up there with the best I've heard from audiobooks.

    Great narration but the book didn’t grab me

    Where does A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
    This is the best narration of R R Martins books (exception being the ones that have sections where he adds commentary .. those are truly delightful). Harold Lloyd's voice is a VERY welcome change from R D's. One can only hope Martin will re-release all the Game of Thrones books read in the future this time read by Lloyd. His voice is so easier to listen to and seems perfectly suited. I've just started listening so I will add to this review in the future but irs caught my attention from the very first paragraph & I love Lloyd's voice so I know this is going to be a "wonder full" and thoroughly immersive journey like all the others in this series. I have a big smile on my face and I am sighing with contentment.
    After finishing listening to the book I have to say I was bored .. it did not rank high like some of his other books .. not for me.

    Not the best for car – listening

    This is a great story. The narrator is good, but unfortunately he drops his voice so low so frequently that you just have to get used to this really really loud voice so that you can kind of mostly hear him when he frequently drops his tone and volume

    Fäden laufen zusammen

    Was hat Ihnen das Hörerlebnis von A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms besonders unterhaltsam gemacht?

    Wer schon die anderen Westeros Bücher von Martin gelesen hat, ein Fan von GOT ist oder auch nur die Serie aufmerksam schaut und sich für ein bisschen mehr interessiert ist hier richtig. A Knight of the seven Kingdoms beschreibt in Form alter Helden Sagen und Geschichten von Tapferkeit und Ehre die frühe Kindheit eines der umstrittensten Herrscher von Westeros und lässt so Symphatien für eine Figur der Serie keimen, die vor dieser Sammlung an Geschichten so sicherlich noch keiner hatte.

    Wow!

    Eigentlich wollte ich mit diesem Buch nur etwas die Wartezeit bis zu The Winds of Winter überbrücken. Jetzt würde ich doch lieber eine neue Geschichte über Dunk & Egg hören!

    Harry Lloyd's reading is brilliant

    I very much enjoyed listening to this audio book, Harry Lloyd's voice is perfect for it. I would love to hear him read A Song of Ice and Fire as well.

    Surprising gem!

    I stopped reading the grr martin westeros series at some point because it feels to big and sprawling. But this is great! Lovely stories, brilliantly crafted, simple yet satisfying.

    Perfekt

    Die D&E Novellen müssen sich qualitativ nicht vor der Hauptserie verstecken, 3 großartige Geschichten!
    Und Harry Lloyd ist der richtige Sprecher. Er hat schon in Game of Thrones Staffel 1 gezeigt, dass er der perfekte Targaryen ist (als Viserys, Bruder von Dany). Und hier zeigt er es wieder. Aber nicht nur seine Targaryen-Stimmen sind so gut, auch ansonsten ist er ein super Sprecher, der auch die Gedanken des Protagonisten Dunk perfekt rüberbringt.

    Well-told tales

    I liked this audiobook because it was well-narrated. The stories as such had well-painted and likeable characters, but they didn't seem to be going anywhere, really, which I thought was a pity. There were three episodes in all, but the reader was left without a sense of closure to Dunc and Egg's story.
