These events take place almost a century ago.
The adventures in this book have never been recounted before and they have the most exciting and intriguing details about the Targaryens and other Houses in Westeros. It portrays the time when Targaryens were still ruling the entire Westeros and the Targaryen king was sitting on the Iron Throne.
Readers are most excited about the mentions of dragons as they hold a huge importance in the region. The events in this book are from the time when the thoughts of dragons were still very fresh in the inhabitants of Westeros.
The book has been illustrated by Gary Gianni. He is known for all his work in the Prince Valiant. He is the same illustrator who made the calendar in Ice and Fire from His illustrations make the book even more exciting. With the original book, we enter the story when the Targaryens are gone and the dragons are nothing more than a memory.
The Tales of Dunk and Egg is pretty fascinating because it is from the time when dragons were all around and there were way too many Targaryens in the kingdom. Incest was prevalent in that time and Targaryen features were very pronounced. In this novella, Kind Daerion is ruling and he has four sons. Three of his sons further have sons.
This means there are way too many heirs for the throne. This shows how Targaryens did not need any enemies from the outside. They had too many competitors at home. Other invaders came in turn.
The Andals crossed the narrow sea in ships, and with iron and fire they swept across the kingdoms of the First Men, and drove the children from their forests, putting many of the weirwoods to the ax. They brought their own faith, worshiping a god with seven aspects whose symbol was a seven-pointed star.
Only in the far north did the First Men, led by the Starks of Winterfell, throw back the newcomers. Elsewhere the Andals triumphed, and raised kingdoms of their own. The children of the forest dwindled and disappeared, while the First Men intermarried with their conquerors.
The Rhoynar arrived some thousands of years after the Andals, and came not as invaders but as refugees, crossing the seas in ten thousand ships to escape the growing might of the Freehold of Valyria.
The lords freeholder of Valyria ruled the greater part of the known world; they were sorcerers, great in lore, and alone of all the races of man they had learned to breed dragons and bend them to their will.
Four hundred years before the opening of A Song of Ice and Fire, however, the Doom descended on Valyria, destroying the city in a single night.
And it's good. You enter the world of the Hedge Knight, a sword for hire, the Ronin of Westeros. They sometimes thrive, sometimes starve, and are a minor part of the universe. We go into that portion, and see how they live, and die, as,we follow a young man trying to make it in the world.
I truly enjoyed the realistic reenactment s of jousting and chivalry, you have a better idea of what it was like, the hopes, the life, the obstacles they faced. This is a much simpler plot than GOT, but 'tis the telling of the tale that shines. Btw a good value too, much longer than most graphic novels. Wow, such high quality for such a low price!
I was pleasantly surprised to find out these were a lot thicker than I expected! I was expecting some sort of flimsy comic book type thing for such a low price I was expecting to receive just "so-so" quality. I was fortunately wrong! These are going to be a gift for my boyfriend, as we're both huge GOT fans.
I know he will love to add these to his collection. They are very well made and both shipped to me very quickly. Once again, I am pleased with my site. Cogelv I'm not a regular reader of graphic novels.
