Set 100 years before A Game of Thrones, we follow Ser Dunk the tall and his squire as they travel across the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros to make a name for himself as a champion and a knight. He’s a good man, and an honourable knight, which is a rare combination for Westeros, but his squire already has a name for himself, that must be kept secret if he wishes to travel freely. But one thing seems clear; both are destined for great things, as long as they don’t get themselves killed along the way.
“For me, books have always been a way to feel less alone while being alone. Perhaps if I was depressed and isolated, just communicating with these authors through their sentences helped me.” Jonathan Ames.
