George RR Martin: A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms Audio Book Summary
A Night of the Seven Kingdoms is the prequel to Song of Ice and Fire, a part of the Game of Thrones series by George R. R. Martin. It is not the long-awaited Winds of Winter, but it still serves as a nice stop-gap for those who are interested in the Game of Thrones universe, and who are looking for something to keep them entertained while they wait for the next season of the TV series and the next edition of the books.
A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms is not just one story ñ it is actually three novellas, and it may not be new content to the most die-hard of fans, since the stories have appeared in the past in some different anthologies, but this is the first time that people have been able to read them all together.
The novellas serve as a nice introduction to the Westeros mythos, they were illustrated by Gary Gianni, and they are accessible and easier to follow than the full-length books. The stories take place a century prior to the Game of Thrones stories ñ and each one features Ser Duncan the Tall, who is a seven-feet tall knight that goes by the nickname of Dunk. He is taken on by Ser Arlan or Pennytrees as a squire, and is taught all of the knightly virtues ñ although even during this era, the signs of the decline of chivalry are clear. Dunk hopes to fight at a tourney and earn the acclaim (and cash) associated with it. He acquires his own squire, Egg, who is something of a know-it-all. Egg is actually Aegon Targaryen, the great-grandfather of Daenerys whom we meet in the books and the TV series. Aegon will, eventually, sit on the Iron Throne.
Where the full-length novels focus on intrigue and court politics, these novellas are simpler and in some ways more light-hearted. Dunk is an honorable, if slightly dim-witted man. Egg persuades Dunk to wander around Westeros partly because he wants to get away from the scheming of his relatives, and on their adventures they encounter hints of the world that we will see in the later novels. The two main characters are innocent spirits that are wandering the world and solving mysteries, and the books would be ideal for younger readers, except for the fact that the final story has some unnecessary casual swearing in it.
This is a refreshing look at the world of Westeros, it shows a world where loyalties have not been fixed yet, and the troubles we know so well now are only just brewing. It has flashes of Shakespeare, Stevenson and Sir Walter Scott, and gives an insight not just into the universe we see on TV, but also the mind of Martin himself. If youíre a fan of Game of Thrones, then you should familiarize yourself with the life of Dunk and Egg to get a new frame of reference on the world.
