The book contains three short stories. Each of the authors has written a multi volume Fantasy saga of some sort and all 3 stories are set in the respective worlds. Each short story has a preface, giving a summary of what those worlds are and the main story line of the actual sagas.

The Sword of Truth: Debt of Bones, Terry Goodkind

A world torn apart by war. A village is ransacked by the enemy and its inhabitants kidnapped. A woman travels to town to find the First Wizard and claim a debt - and his

DEBT OF BONES: I read this one many years ago as a stand-alone hardcover. I remember thinking Goodkind must have a pretty devoted fanbase if he can get away with selling them a mediocre novella for $20 a pop. It's a decent fairy tale-type story, short and sweet. The twists at the end are a bit cheesy, and it's not really very well written, but it does contain a bunch of neat concepts.

THE HEDGE KNIGHT: Since I live under a rock, this was my first time delving into the GAME OF THRONES universe. TH
Was pretty happy to find this, mainly just because I wanna read the GRRM story ;)

Sacrificing nerd credibility, I'll admit that of the three authors included in this collection, I was only familiar with George RR Martin. This made for an uneven reading experience. Even with introductions to get the reader grounded in each fictional universe, there's a tricky balance here to giving enough context for the story to make sense within the limited scope of the short works while not boring those who are already familiar with the universe, so the volume was a bit uneven.

This was one of the most important books that I read years ago that sparked my interest in some authors that I was not aware of. I had been out of the fantasy loop for quite a few years. I am from the Tolkien, McCaffrey, Brooks, Donaldson era, and I was out of touch. This book and the second volume, as well as the Legends II books of the last decade are essential if you want to jump into fantasy but do not know where to start. Start with vol. 1! What follows are my brief reviews of the stories i ...more

Three short novels from Terry Goodkind, George R. R, Martin, and Anne McCaffrey are well written and provide a nice fantasy fix in small doses.

Each tell a full story and leave the reader wanting just a bit more information even though the story is complete.

I wish every genre would do this. Collect one-hundred page shorts so you could get a taste of their style and storytelling ability without investing too much time.

Turns out fantasy just isn't for me. As expected, I loved The Hedge Knight by Martin. The other two were bloody awful.

I have only read two of the stories here, none of the other's interested me. The ones i read are by Robin Hobb and George RR Martin.

A good story and interesting insight into the history of Westeros, the Targaryen dynasty, and some characters we've grown to love.

I only read "The Hedge Knight." It was the only story I was interested in. I loved it. It was too short. It was cool reading about a Westeros in which all the Targaryans haven't been killed.

an inspiring collection of stories, that started me reading books like the Game of Thrones, and Wild cards... I bought it originally because of the anne mccaffrey Robert silverberg stories.
