Teaser Tuesdays: A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms


I am really loving all this back story into the Targaryen family that I am getting reading these various prequels to A Song of Ice and Fire. Dangerous Women that I read last year was fantastic, dramatic, and bloodthirsty all at the same time.

But these simple Dunk and Egg tales from A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms are also pretty charming, and insightful as well, providing a nice glimpse into some of the famous Targaryens from history, some of whom still influence the events in A Song of Ice and Fire. My interest was definitely heightened when Bloodraven makes an entrance in the third short story from the book.

How many eyes does Lord Bloodraven have? A thousand eyes, and one.

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

I finished this book over the weekend, and a review of it is coming up shortly.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:


  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

    I really need to jump back into this series. I’ve only read the first book and loved it.

    I shared my teaser for Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman today.

    I often think I should begin reading this series. However, I am currently in the middle of several series and not sure I should add another. My teaser this week comes from The
    Deception of the Emerald Ring by Lauren Willig
    . Happy

    Erm… not into A Song of Ice and Fire, or Game of Thrones although I do enjoy Martin’s writing – have you read Fevre Dream? One of my all-time favourite reads… Thank you for sharing and swinging by my site earlier:) Have a great week!
