So far, I have only read Dragonswan from this collection. This review will updated later as I read more.

This is a copy of my Dragonswan review that can be found under "Dragonswan."

I hate to rate this so low. I mean, it's just a fantasy.

You're a history professor specializing in pre-Norman Britain. A gorgeous guy who's six five comes into your office and starts chatting you up. Even though you're plain-looking (?) and your shirt is misbuttoned, your socks don't match, and you're dressed like a fr

3.5 Stars (rating and review for Fire and Ice only)

Every time I read one of The League books I wish there were more futuristic romance novels out there. Kenyon does a great job of bringing the creativity and action of Star Wars to the drama and romance of Titanic. And with each release, I wish there were more books in the series so that I didn’t have to wait for the next installment.

Adron, a former League assassin and the son of Nykyrian and Kiara from Born of Night, is in a living nightmare af

I really enjoyed this anthology by Sherrilyn Kenyon which had three good stories in it.

Of all SK's series her League series is my absolute favourite and I have loved each book so far and this novella was no different. With her trademark tortured hero, Adron who who was viciously tortured after selflessly sacrificing himself for a pregnant woman he didn't know is now badly scarred

In Other Worlds is a collection of novellas by the wonderfully talented Sherrilyn Kenyon. You can argue with me on the talented part, but I stand by my love for her books. On to the book… the first novella and the reason I checked this book out at the library is FIRE AND ICE. Fire and Ice is a part of the League series. The story follows Adran Quiakides the son of Kiara and Nykyrian (Born of

I thought this was a great book to get myself out of my reading rut and it worked a treat!

Sherrilyn Kenyon's In Other Worlds contains two previously released books Dragonswan (part of the Dark-Hunter series) and Fire and Ice (part of The League series) along with a new story Knightly Dreams.

I have read Dragonswan before back in 2008 when I first got into the Dark-Hunter series. And I thought it was just ok but after re-reading it I much enjoyed it the second time around and thought it was a grea

Nice to have more stories about Generation 2. The League series is one of my favorite series. Enjoyed Adron and Livia's story a lot. Nice to see Nykyrian and Kiara again. Wonder if we will see This again. Also nice to know that Kyr is finally dead. Glad that Livia was able to heal Adron and they have a little boy. So cute!!! Another thing I'm glad about is Adron finally forgave Jayce and named his kid after him. Want to learn more about the Trisani. Wonder how many are still l

So I admit the only books of Sherrilyn's I've read are a few of the B.A.D. Agency novels and Fantasy Lover. Um, why have I not read the rest of her books yet?

Fire and Ice The first novella was from her League series and holy buckets, I really wish it was a full length novel. The hero was just my type - tortured, scarred, angry and completely arse over tits/head over heels in love with his woman. *siiiigh* Thank the stars I own the League series already.

This book contains 3 stories of romance, fantasy and magic, they are quick and fun to read.

Fire and Ice: This is part of Kenyon's League series and always it leaves you with the feeling that you wish there were more books to keep reading without having to wait. Futuristic romances between two characters both physically and mentally damages but with great hearts. They heal each other physically and mentally with their love.

[Adron] held the towel to his nose and mouth. "I just damaged another internal organ. Who knows which one. Since they're all pretty much soup, it could be..." his voice trailed off as Theo came in with a gurney and three orderlies.

a collection of three stories by Kenyon.

I had read Dragonswan in a standalone book. I love the Dark Hunter series and time travel both so I enjoyed this one even this time around.

Knightly Dreams was quite intriguing. I have never read anything like it. Not being a writer myself but possessing a good imagination I can see this as a possibility. No spoilers just read it.

Fire and Ice was my favorite. It was sweet with characters to care about. Ultimately about sacrificial love I was almost disappoi

My copy of this only contained The League short story - though I have read both of the other shorts in hardover and given each of them a 5star rating as well. This review is just for The League short story.

Loved this short which had us visiting with Adron (one of Nyk's sons) who had been severely injured during his time as a League Assassin and his lady-love, princess on the run Livia.

Adron's alcoholism and Livia's sheltered life make them seem an unlikely couple but I liked these two together a

This novella was about Adorn the son of Nykrian and Kiara. I loved him. My heart broke for him and all his sorrows. I was so glad that he found happiness with Livia. They needed each other and made each other whole. This was a great start to this collection of stories.

This was a great Kenyon collection, I wanted to read this when I finished all the dark-hunter novels but when I saw it had a short story from the league I read those first and I am glad I did, you dont need to but I think I understood Adron's character better having a bit of history on his and his family. You dont need much history on Sebastian for Dragonswan, honestly if you haven't read the dark-hunter books his character in them is extremely reclusive and you dont see him much anyway.

Collection of 3 short stories:

Fire and Ice is League Generation 2 -Adron is the oldest son of Nyk and Kiara and he trained as an assassin. Somewhere they mention that his half sister Thia was supposed to be the heir but she disappeared and the family does not know where she is. He took on a deranged guy and gave himself up to save the hostages. Adron was tortured and almost died. He has lots of major health problems and really does not enjoy his continued existence.

Now he lives in constant pain that he tries to dull by drinking. Livia is fixing to be married off to a man old enough to be her grandfather and there is only one way to stop it, the old goat won't marry her if she isn't a virgin.

I know it hasn't been published yet, but I wanted to mark it "read" to indicate I have already read the Dark-Hunter short "Dragonswan" as part of the anthology "Tapestry". I also own "Dragonswan" as a stand alone book.

Read date for "Dragonswan": 2003. Rating: 3 stars.

The "to-read" is for the "The League" story.

I only read the first 2 stories in this book. The first one, part of the League series I had read years ago. Kenyon said she re-wrote this story but it was pretty close to the same from what I recall. I really enjoyed this one and would give it a 4*.

The next story about the woman and the romance hero was a bit silly and I didn't enjoy it that much. I would probably give that one 2*.

I really enjoyed this book. I actually already owned Dragonswan as a stand alone book, but it was great to read it again. I loved the story of Adron and Livia even though I wish it had been longer. Now I can't wait for Born of Shadows to come out. Finally I really enjoyed the unique spin of Knightly Dreams. Overall this anthology was a great addition to my Kenyon collection.

Fire and Ice
I really enjoyed this one and liked reading about Adron and Livia. Even as I wanted to strangle Adron for being an ass. He had his reasons for it, yes, but still he would test the patience of a rock. I only wish this had been a full novel, rather than a novella. It's too short and over with too soon. 3.5 stars

Kenyon is a bad girl. Bad meaning FABULOUS!!! I'm not a fan of short stories, because I enjoy fully developed plots and characters. Usually short stories are rushed with no true connection and leaves me hanging in the end. Sherrilyn Kenyon hit the ball out of the park. I enjoyed all three stories but my favorite by far was Dragonswan. How she put several dimensions in a short story and answered all of the questions concerning the characters and settings is beyond me. She also makes you fall in l ...more

I am a huge fan of SK, and was really interested in this set of three short stories. To be honest, I had previously read both Knightly Dreams and Dragonswan in other anthologies. Dragonswan will always be one of my favorite short stories that has to do with the Acardians and Katagaria. Both are stories that I enjoy reading over again. I was most looking forward to reading Fire and Ice, a short story from The League series (my personal favorite series.) It tells the story of Nykyrian and Kiara's ...more

The first story is from The League universe and one of it's two main characters is Adron Quiakides, son of the two main characters from The League book #1. Goodreads mistakenly lists this story as #2.5 in The League series, but I've read the first three League novels, and it's very clear that this story is actually set after book #3, so it should be numbered as #3.5. The story is just as good as the League novels, and while it only make up a third of this anthology, the story isn't too short.

Fire and Ice:

This one reminded me just why I fell in love with her League series. And while our Hero, Adron, is the typical brooding asshole he's not completely irredeemable. Even going as far as to bind himself to our Heroine to protect her from her family. While a lot of his angst is because of his disability, she understands it, and sympathizes, and even better doesn't get impatient with him.

4/5 Stars.

So I have actually read two of these short stories before in the form of e-books so I'll be reviewing them in a rather mixed order. Though (spoilers) I love all of them.

Dragonswan: Last in the compilation of the book, it is actually the first one of Sherrilyn's stories that I ever read. I found it in a book called Tapestry. I'd gotten it due to my love for Miss Lynn Kurland and discovered a new and very proud love and respect for Sherrilyn Kenyon. The story made me giddy and overjoyed and left m
