Silvana (silvaubrey) | 1818 comments Does the graphic novel counts? I still have to order the third one though.

Sure does! You just get a smaller points bonus. Come and at least read the first two with us...

I will! Just checked the price of the The Mystery Knight: A Graphic Novel. Why oh why it only comes in hardcover.....

I might just listen for the audio (Viserys as narrator :D)

Well, being the Evil Queen...my best advice will be to ask the brother and he will cunningly find some way for you to claim more points...like with that whole LoLL and RSuRS reversal re-read suggestion...I know I have totally fumked this sentence with obscurity...which...the short version is Ask Iain.
Or wait...wait...*evil sabotage face* don't ask. You jezzt read the graphic novels...takes you much less time....way prettier...all them pictures...


Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7859 comments Hahaha! 😂
Or... I read both? Alllll the points!

Awe, you're too sweet~


Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7859 comments So I actually think I have time to read the graphic novels and the book... 😂
But turns out I don't own the Sworn Sword graphic novel, I just thought I did... So I'm gonna start a bit early, read The Hedge Knight graphic, then A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms, then the Mystery Knight. Hope that's OK! :)


Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7859 comments Finished The Hedge Knight graphic novel. It was really good! Don't know why I've had it on my shelf so long and only read it now!

(view spoiler)

I don't read graphic novels very often but I really enjoyed this. I need to buy the Sworn Sword now! XD


Chris  (haughtc) | 1770 comments Glad you liked it. The artwork was pretty awesome in these.

Zaara | 4273 comments What do I say? I learn fast, Lannister.
I totally blame Virginie and the Boys.


Chris  (haughtc) | 1770 comments Heh, I can see that.

The pics are pretty impressive so far.

Anni | 5048 comments You're talking about pics in the book/GN right? Or am I blind? 😂


Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7859 comments What, you can't see all the beautiful pictures on this thread??

😂😂 Yeah, in the book hehe.


Silvana (silvaubrey) | 1818 comments Siobhan, you have to get Sworn Sword graphic novel too, while the story is not as good as HK or MK, the illustration of the Battle of Redgrass Field was just fantastic.

Zaara | 4273 comments Finished the Hedge Knight. I read almost nothing else yesterday. I think I also managed...what...three short chapters of Riyria? Sorry I didn't log on last night and post...was very much here in spirit. What actually happemed was I totally geeked out and went nerd on the Top 3 Shield Wall exercise and drew up an entire battle heirarchy (with benchwarming backups) and strategic plans and it all got so complex that it ran into multiple pages.
I had such fun tho'...Lannister...
Where was I?

HEDGE KNIGHT LOG...HUGE SO SPOILERING...BUT GOES FAST

Zaara | 4273 comments Wow! I killed this thread all by myself 🙊
Hi-five Marge! Btw here is Margret? She been on my mind since yest...
Ok I only expected to give @Jenna the screaming nightmares/small incidental headache with my long spoiler bcuz the rest of you have already been with me in BRs...and heh, after the Mark Lawrence you guys knew what to expect...

But like I promised...here is a very small reading update.
Finished Sworn Sword.
The minute they started (view spoiler)

Halfway thru Mystery Knight. I will finish it todau bcuz I am sooooo behind on Riyria...😒


Chris  (haughtc) | 1770 comments Glad you liked The Hedge Knight, Zaara. I'm not quite done with it, but since it's my 3rd or 4th time though, I'm savoring.


Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7859 comments Yay glad you liked them Zaara. Love reading your comments.
I really liked that scene with the Red Widow too! 😅

I finished the Mystery Knight. I think it was probably my favourite of the three, though they were all really good.

Zaara | 4273 comments Finished. Nothing much to say about the last xept it was good. I liked the first novella best....as you can tell 😝 altho' the last was prolly the most sophisticated along the intrigue front.
Love the (view spoiler)

Ok here are gifts for all....

Yeah @Chris...I figured...saw your status update where you told someone this was your entry point into the world...I like that these stories have such a low magic quotient. It reads like historical fiction almost, xept for the dragon eggs. I really was (view spoiler)
Here is a pic for you...fight scene...
(view spoiler)

For Siobhan....oh good...you liked another one best...I found it...
I thought the flyleaf illustration for the last one....with Egg and Maester in a tug of war was the cutest thing ever, esp bcuz the donkey wore a hat and I searched online for it...ages...so I could post it here for you...couldn't find...found ALL the other drawings save that one...tho' this could have more to do with my dismal online skills than anything.
Still, here ya go 😘 and thanks for the Hadrian's Wall pics
(view spoiler)

For @Jenna...Dunk & the Red Widow...did you start reading, Jenna? The pic has a very fairytale Rapunzel vibe...its my favourite illustration of The Lady.
(view spoiler)

For @Silvana...Egg and Dunk's first of many faceoffs...clout on the ear....hehehe...I love how he tries hard to be strict but can never follow up on his menacing threats...
(view spoiler)

And for also for meeeeee...bcuz I am greedy 😁 made extra effort to make this thread nice...which I need not have...but always the siscouragment for more people to buy ALL the illustrated versions of EVERYTHING...☺️
I tried to find one of the images of the crowd from Hedge Knight and also the one of Egg and the Donkey but couldn't :-(
So I get puppets....Florian the Fool and his Lady Jonquil...

Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7859 comments The sizes don't matter, I can see them all fine, and you've made this thread beauuuuuutiful!! :D

Thank you for sharing my favourite illustration! It makes my heart hurt a little seeing how much he cares for Dunk ❤️
