George R. R. Martin – The Sworn Sword Audiobook (The Tales of Dunk and Egg 2)
The Sworn Sword is the second of the Tales of Dunk and Egg, a progression of novellas set in Westeros roughly 100 years previously the occasions of the primary Song of Ice and Fire arrangement. I found the story in the collection Legends II, altered by Robert Silverberg.
This time, the story is set in the Reach, amid a terrible dry season. Dunk and Egg, a free-meandering fence knight and his squire, have brought up benefit with a landed knight. Shockingly, Ser Eustace is conceivably the most abandoned knight in the entire kingdom. George R. R. Martin – The Sworn Sword Audiobook Free Online. He is from an old and honorable house, whose sigil is the chequey lion (for reasons unknown, I truly like stating “chequey”), yet they have lost the majority of their territories and magnificence at this point. Ser Eustace has lost the greater part of his youngsters and lives with just a couple of mates (some of questionable worth) in an old watchtower.
Toward the start of this story, Dunk finds that Ser Eustace’s marginally wealthier neighbor, a lady who is reputed to have slaughtered a few spouses, is taking the water from Eustace’s stream. This encourages a progression of occasions, loaded with both cleverness and sentiment, in which Ser Eustace tries to battle back against this neighboring woman. Privileged insights and turns are uncovered, yet between the solid, decent Dunk and the sharp kid Egg, the circumstance finds a conclusion.
Once more, by perusing this you can get a greater amount of the history/backstory of Westeros. The Blackfyre Rebellion is talked about in some detail, alongside different occasions that occurred preceding the Song of Ice and Fire arrangement. And keeping in mind that there are hardships and killings et cetera, the world simply isn’t the nightmarish place it is amid the War of the Five Kings.
I’m endeavoring to pace myself through these A Song of Ice and Fire short stories while sitting tight for the (ideally) inevitable 6th novel in the arrangement. The stress is that having come up short on books in the arrangement to peruse, having completed the second in the set of three, I’m presently gambling coming up short on novellas as well. This one gets really not long after the first: The Hedge Knight, and we find that Egg is presently formally the squire of Dunk (in spite of the fact that they are both pledged to mystery as to his genuine personality). Realize that Dunk is an appropriate knight he ends up expecting to do gallant things. So he has sworn his sword to a Ser. Ser Eustace for this situation. Ser Eustace isn’t the best good example that a knight and his squire could have. Referred to his different knights as Ser Useless, he for the most part invests his energy moping about his lost youngsters, his lost terrains and his lost position. George R. R.

The lesson on this novella – for both Dunk and Egg – is to be watchful whom you swear your sword to. When Ser Eustace gets into a debate with his neighbor, Dunk is compelled by a sense of duty to agree with his lord’s stance. Notwithstanding when it starts to come to pass that his lord won’t not have been completely legit with him.
As some time recently, Martin is great with the shorter story. For a creator that thumps out gigantic tomes in his books, it’s reviving to see he’s additionally similarly as great with such a pared down single story-line. Indeed, even in such a short story however, there’s still respect, put stock in, foul play, rudeness, a touch of sentiment, and a lot of amusingness. I particularly delighted in the rehashed segments where Egg needs to stay quiet and tune in to knights (and Sers) speak insolently about the King and his family without understanding that Egg is one of the sovereigns himself.
