What is ‘A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms: The Hedge Knight’ about?

The new Game of Thrones prequel is based on Martin’s “Dunk and Egg” novel series. The Hedge Knight is the first book of that series, and follows the adventures of Ser Duncan the Tall, known as Dunk, and his squire, Aegon V Targaryen, nicknamed Egg. The series takes place some 90 years before the events of the Song of Ice and Fire novels. It begins with the death of a nomadic hedge knight, Ser Arlan of Pennytree. Dunk takes up his armor, equipment, three horses, and the remaining money to win more gold at the town of Ashford. On his journey, Dunk finds a young boy, Egg, and takes him on as his own squire, unaware that Egg is actually a prince of the realm.
