While not a true prequel, I was happy to finally read about the Piebald Prince so often mentioned in the other books. A quick read, and more to satisfy your curiosity about Dutchies history, it's worth the read.

Shows early history and future customs of the six duchies, when they were one kingdom. Fast paced story, accurate character portrayal, and shows character twists that are usually hidden. Overall very good read.

There was a lot of interesting horse lore in this story, but it didn't take advantage of the whole horse-human bond idea, and it ended up a bit depressing.
