Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on August 30, 2016
I purchased this story collection solely for the Song of Ice and Fire short story "The Rogue Prince, or, A King's Brother" (George Martin), along with the "Dangerous Women" short story collection, which includes the ASOIAF short story "The Princess and the Queen." These two stories go together, so I recommend purchasing both books. Both of these short stories are essential reading for extreme ASOIAF fans, especially since we are currently between seasons and books. Like the "Dunk and Egg" short stories, these two short stories explore Targaryen history. I preferred "The Princess and the Queen," which contained much more action, while "The Rogue Prince" was more focused on character development. The story of "The Rogue Prince" takes place before that of "The Princess and the Queen," but I would recommend reading "The Princess" first -- in "The Princess" you get an exciting story, and then in "Rogue" we find out why the characters behaved the way that they did in "Princess." They can be read in either order, though.

I have not read the other stories in this collection, but I did notice that it also contains a story from the world of the Kingkiller Chronicles (Rothfuss), which I will need to read as I wait for the third book in that series!
