The Hedge Knight: Martin's epic fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire, The Hedge Knight chronicles a young squire as he travels the cruel and complex path to knighthood in the Seven Kingdoms. In this gripping prequel, Dunk and Egg seek glory in a world both familiar and new to Game of Thrones fans.
What the two fortune seekers encounter, however, is a world of distrust and political machinations. Chivalry is not lost while Dunk holds fast to his dreams of honor. But such outdated virtues make him a target and they may even lead to his ruin. This vivid and elaborately wrought tale brings new dimension to George R.
Martin's beloved world. Paperback, pages. Book Details Author: George R. Martin ,Ben Avery Pages: Like The Sworn Sword , the book takes place during the reign of Aerys I and the aftermath of the Blackfyre Rebellion is examined in more detail. On the way they encounter a septon beheaded for preaching treason ; and later a group of knights and minor lords traveling to a tourney in honor of the wedding of Lord Butterwell of Whitewalls to a Frey of the Crossing , wherein the victor's prize is a dragon egg.
Dunk takes a dislike to Gorman Peake, whom he believes the killer of his own mentor's former squire. Egg tells Dunk that Peake's arms of three castles on an orange field is because the Peake family owned three castles, but forfeited two to the Crown when Peake sided with Blackfyre. During the journey Dunk befriends three other itinerant knights: The wedding is set at Whitewalls and Lord Frey arrives with his four-year-old heir, Walder Frey , and his fifteen-year-old daughter, who weds Lord Butterwell.
Egg becomes increasingly suspicious when he sees that most of the competitors belonged to the rebel party. During the wedding Dunk is drafted by John the Fiddler to carry the bride to the bedchamber.
Dunk does so and later hears from John that the latter once saw Duncan himself, in a dream, in the armor of the royal guard. Dunk enters the first match of the joust under the name of 'Gallows Knight' for a new shield acquired after the loss of his own ; but is defeated in the first tilt by Ser Uthor Underleaf, known as the Snail Knight for his sigil.
Duncan later gives Underleaf his armor and horse as forfeit, and Underleaf informs Dunk that someone bribed him to kill Dunk in the final tilt. Before the jousting continues, word spreads through the castle that the dragon egg is missing, and the blame is placed on Ser Glendon Ball, who is imprisoned by Peake. In search of the absent Egg, Duncan is wounded by Alyn Cockshaw, who claims to have bribed Uthor Underleaf, and throws him into a well.
Maynard Plumm comes to Duncan's aid, and it is discovered that Plumm is one of Bloodraven's many spies or possibly Bloodraven himself , and that John the Fiddler is the eponymous son of Daemon Blackfyre. Dunk finds Egg in the sept with the cowering Lord Butterwell, who on discovering Egg's true identity is terrified for his life.
Lord Butterwell's son-in-law Black Tom Heddle tries to kill Egg to incite a war, and is killed by Duncan, who thereupon tells Egg to flee with Butterwell. To download time for Egg's escape Dunk confronts the younger Daemon Blackfyre, and accuses Gorman Peake of falsely charging Ball with the theft of the dragon egg.
Daemon allows Ball to prove his innocence in trial by combat, in which Ser Glendon soundly defeats Daemon. For surrendering to Bloodraven without a fight, Lord Butterwell is spared his life and allowed a tenth of his wealth; but his fortress is forfeit to the Iron Throne and torn down. Bloodraven, at Egg's request, gives Dunk the gold to ransom his armor.
When Dunk asks Bloodraven what became of the dragon egg, Bloodraven tells Dunk it was taken by an agent of his implied to be one of the performing dwarfs at the wedding. Martin has said that he would like to write a number of these stories varying from six to twelve from interview to interview covering the entire lives of these two characters.
In he talked about working on the fourth novella, which was originally to be included in the anthology Dangerous Women , and a year after that it and the three previously published Dunk and Egg tales were to be collected and published in the U. As of late , work on the story has been postponed while Martin completes The Winds of Winter. In April , Martin also announced that he had roughed out another Dunk and Egg story with the working title The Village Hero which would be set in the Riverlands.
He noted that he was not sure which of these two would be completed first. In A Storm of Swords , Prince Oberyn Martell remarks that "In the days of the Targaryens, a man who struck one of the blood royal would lose the hand he struck him with": In A Feast for Crows , Brienne has her shield painted with arms that match Dunk's, copied from a shield in her father's armory.
In the same novel, Brienne arrives at an inn owned by a possible descendant of Black Tom Heddle. Aemon mentions that when he went to the wall, "He [Egg] sent me north aboard the Golden Dragon, and insisted that his friend Ser Duncan see me safe to Eastwatch". In A Dance with Dragons , the memories of Ser Barristan Selmy reveal that the sons of Aegon V, as well as Aegon himself, had chosen their own wives, rather than accept matches for political advantage.
According to Ser Barristan Selmy, this stimulated resentment and treason amongst the lords, and ultimately caused the "tragedy of Summerhall". The novellas were adapted as graphic novels:. Martin wrote in that film or TV adaptations of the novellas are being discussed. He suggested that because HBO owns the TV rights to the setting of Westeros if not to the characters of the novellas , it would be preferable to have HBO adapt the novellas as well.
