In Other Worlds (Dark-Hunter: Were-Hunter book 0.5 (Dragonswan))
Three dazzling stories of magic, fantasy, and romance from the #1 "New York Times" bestselling author.
Three of the author's most thrilling stories in one fabulous volume...
"Fire and Ice"
On the run, a beautiful virgin crosses paths with a sexy ex-assassin.
The dashing hero of a novel comes to life.
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 ...more
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 ...more
I really enjoyed this anthology by Sherrilyn Kenyon which had three good stories in it.
Fire & Ice
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 ...more
3.5 in The League series and a prequel to the Were-Hunter series
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...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
As found in Other Worlds anthology which as Sherrilyn Kenyon novellas from her different series.
This is book #1.5 in the Dark-Hunter series. It is a novella to introduce the Were-Hunter series to the Dark-Hunter series but I am not sure that these characters are in the rest of the series at all.
Channon MacRae is a professor and scholar. She has been obsesses with a certain tapestry that depicts a battle between a dragon and a man for years. She is studying the tapestry at the museum w ...more

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. Makes it easier to dive in. Well, it will ...more
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.
Knightly Dreams: The story behind this one is the concept that a book choo ...more
- Fire and Ice (Adron and Livia}
Adron - "I am the one who glued Zarina to the toilet seat when she was seven."
[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.
Theo shook his head, "You know, Adron, if you want to spend the night with me, ther ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 fun story about a writer falling in love with her hero. Hawk was a super gorgeous knight who was stuck in a half finished book and he was brought to life by Taryn. I enjoyed this one but no ...more
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. Livia is a Vistan princess - ...more
Read date for "Dragonswan": 2003. Rating: 3 stars.
The "to-read" is for the "The League" story.
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*.
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
This one is rather fun, and a little disturbing. I keep picturing one of my characters popping in from their world and standing over me while I work ou ...more
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.
I really enjoyed this one, but I suppose I'm biased as a writer. I like t ...more
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 ...more
