Love the two main characters, Dunk and Egg. Their loyalty to one another, expressed frequently, adds richness to Westeros that isn’t often found in the Ice and Fire novels. They get into all kinds of trouble, big and small, that points to larger forces at work that set the scene for A Game of Thrones. Recommended if you’re a fan of the novels or even either of the TV shows. I don’t know if it stands alone if you’re not already familiar with the stakes.
