Book Review: A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms

A century before A GAME OF THRONES, two unlikely heroes wandered Westeros…

Rating: ★★★★☆

Author: George R.R. Martin

Continueing with the Game of Thrones theme that has been so popular lately, for whatever reason, this week I decided I’d review A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms, a prequel “series” to the main storyline.

Having read the main series before I got a hold of this, I had a basic understanding of some of the characters in the book.

What I really enjoy about the supplementary Game of Thrones books is that there is usually some really nice artwork to look at while you read. There is some artwork in this one, but not as much as I would prefer, and msot of it is sketches.

I read it probably three years ago now, and I still remember some of the moments in the book because of how cool they are. I remember tjere was one about Duncan, or Dunc, who is the main character of the book, and he is tried for a crime, which causes a trial by combat.

After the combat, which his team had one, multiple royal family members and Kingsguard members were left dead, all because they defended the innocence of some random guy, who was really a sorry excuse for a knight. His main feature was just finding Egg, and guiding him around the world and keeping him out of trouble.

Dunc and Egg make a wonderful pair, and become life-long friends because of the events in this book. Ser Duncan is not only a knight in name, but also one in deed. This is something increasingly rare in the seven kingdoms. There are few true knights and even fewer when the events of A Song of Ice and Fire take place.

Dunc is a strong and honorable knight, but isn’t all that smart. They call him “thick as a castle wall,” but that’s where Egg comes into play.

Egg is still a boy, though he has a fully developed mind that even the Maesters shall envy. He tempers Ser Duncan’s wrath, guiding him to choose the best course of action. Indeed he has the mind that Duncan lacks. However, for all his intelligence, he still has a whole world to see and understand; he still needs to develop his wisdom.

By being Duncan’s squire, he gets to see honour and decency; he begins to understand how people work, and how best to defeat them; he learns that it can be achieved through words as well as deeds.

The two embark on some interesting adventures. Their first (The Hedge Knight ) is by far my favourite. It depicts the pair’s first meeting, and they discover how important them coming together was. Dunc changes the fate of the Seven Kingdoms. The two only met by chance. Their actions lead to the altercation of who is to be the next King. So, it’s all rather far reaching stuff. The second story ( The Sworn Sword) didn’t quite work for me and felt a little flat in all. The third ( The Mystery Knight) made up for it, though, with its character defining moments.

Overall they are all a short read, but nontheless are fun to read, and if you are a Game of Thrones fan, they are a necessity.

Since it’s Valentine’s Day coming up in a few days, I figured that people would appreciate a Valentine’s Day themed writing prompt…the thing about this one is that it’s for all those single people who don’t have anything to do on Valentine’s Day (which is more than okay because being single isn’t a bad thing).

Here it is:

It’s Valentine’s Day, and this is the first time you’ve been single in a while, but you won’t let that get you down. You decided to stay at home and binge watch that new Netflix show you found.

Continue from there, and describe the perfect evening to yourself.

As always, I’d love to see what you can make of this.

Boy oh boy am I excited for today’s news!!

A few days ago I found out that there is a book coming out  from a series that I thought had been finished years ago.

There’s this really fantastic author, Marie Lu, who writes this fantastic series, Legend, which I had assumed was concluded with the third book of the trilogy.

Little did I know, she had a book 4 planned to come out October 2019.

This is definitely on my list to read, and can’t wait to read a Marie Lu book again!

Here’s a story that does a better job of explaining things than I do.

Marie Lu: Rebel

Since it’s Chinese New Year today, what better way to celebrate than a writing prompt based off of just that.

So here it is:

The 12 Zodiac animals get together, as they do once every year to celebrate the new year.

The only problem is, there is one missing. The 11 animals soon realize that Pig is missing, and nobody has heard from him in a long time.

The animals go off together in search of Pig.

I hope you enjoy this one. I think it’s an interesting idea, and could be a really good idea for a book. (if you use it for a book just let me know or give me credit please lol)
