The Tales of Dunk and Egg Series
Though Egg is a boy at the start of the series he will eventually grow up to become King Aegon V, or "Aegon the Unlikely". The Tales of Dunk and Egg may potentially be made into a live-action project which will be a prequel to the main Game of Thrones TV series. Thus far, however, nothing has been confirmed. The realm is still recovering from the First Blackfyre Rebellion thirteen years before, a great civil war that tore the Seven Kingdoms in half. Daeron II's bastard half-brother Daemon Blackfyre had tried to seize the throne in the rebellion, but was killed in the final battle of the war. Several of his sons survived by fleeing into exile, and across the Narrow Sea , House Blackfyre is continually plotting all manner of intrigues against the main branch of the Targaryen dynasty , hoping to gain support for new rebellions. The Targaryens are still having difficulty maintaining their hold on power, particularly since the last of their dragons died fifty years ago, and the beasts are starting to fade from living memory.

T he Game of Thrones series finale took up some emotional real estate close to the very end to focus on the noble deeds of dead knights like Jaime Lannister, but hidden among nods to heroes like Barristan Selmy and Arthur Dayne is one entry that Brienne reads about her own ancestor: Ser Duncan the Tall. Game of Thrones author George R. He probably also provided the genetics needed to make Brienne so tall and badass, making this a subtle act of fan service connecting the fan-favorite fighter with her tall ancestor. But it also serves as a reminder that Game of Thrones author George R. Martin has clamored for a prequel series about Duncan for years now.

Few authors have as much power to draw you in with fun characters and thrilling adventures—and then crush your spirit utterly—as George R. But the latest way that Martin managed to make me lose all hope for humanity was especially sneaky. And just tremendously soul-shredding. So I am speaking of the Dunk and Egg tales. But they frequently deal with the awful consequences of those endless wars of dynastic succession in Westeros. As I wrote in my review back in October , Dunk and Egg have a cameraderie that feels very reminiscent of Pod and Brienne in the other books. And even though we know that Egg will become King Aegon V, he and Dunk feel like total underdogs, who sleep in ditches and get a raw deal every time.
