A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms by George R. R. Martin

For those of you waiting and waiting and waiting for George R. R. Martin to finish the last book of the Song of Ice and Fire, here is a prequel set hundreds of years before The Game of Thrones. This beautifully illustrated book follows the escapades of Dunk (Sir Duncan the Tall) and Egg (Aegon Targaryn, Daenery’s  great grandfather). Dunk was born in Flea Bottom in Kings Landing, never knowing his mother or father. He became a squire for a lesser knight and traveled with him around the Seven Kingdoms. Now Dunk is the Knight and Egg is his squire. A kinder, gentler story than any of the Song of Ice and Fire books, A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms fills in some of the backstory in that series, while being intriguing enough to stand on its own. The lovely illustrations by Gary Gianni add much to the book.
