Each of the best-selling writers represented in Legends II return to the special universe of the imagination that its author has made famous throughout the world. Whether set before or after events already recounted elsewhere, whether featuring beloved characters or compelling new creations, these masterful short novels are both mesmerizing stand-alones (perfect introductions to the work of their authors) and indispensable additions to the epics on which they are based.
George R.R. Martin continues the adventures of Dunk, a young hedge knight, and his unusual squire, Egg, in "The Sworn Sword", set a generation before the events in A Song of Ice and Fire.
Anne McCaffrey shines a light into the most mysterious and wondrous of all places on Pern in the heartwarming "Beyond Between".

"Warmly recorded escapism for fans of fantasy." (AudioFile)
For those of us waiting for the next GRRM book, this is a great appetizer to tide us over before the feast. Plus it continues the story Dunk and Egg from the first Legends. The narrator is excellent. I'm not a Pern fan, but if you are you might enjoy that one also.
I downloaded this book for the Anne McCaffrey story she is one of favorite authors. I found both storys good. The Anne McCaffery story 'Beyond Between' explains what happens to Dragon riders who get stuck in between. It was very intertaining and inlightning but way too short.
I just achieved App Master!! I never thought I would make it this far!! Thanks Audible
EGG,HE ALWAYS HAS A GREAT ANSWER.
YES,THEY BOTH DID A GREAT JOB I WOULD LISTEN AGAIN.
THE GIRL WITH FOUR DEAD HUSBANDS.YOU KNOW SHE WILL GIVE U A GOOD TIME.AND IT WONT LAST LONG..
I HAVE READ TWO SO FAR THIS BOOK AND WARRIORS,I CANT WAIT TO LISTEN TO THE OTHER TWO,THEIR QUICK AND TO THE POINT.
A bridging short story to explain the Moretta saga. A little weak on story development, but then this is a fantasy World.
To have more information on what happened, is very nice, this does provide a form of closure for a very loved character from the series.
I want to feel good when I complete a story & am a little harsh on depressing ones. There are a few sad ones that I love but not many.
Martin's continuing story of Dunk and Egg is very well done. I wish that I had more and this one has pushed me into trying some other works by Martin. I can't wait for the next volume of Song of Fire and Ice. The performance from Malcolm is a huge step up from the first Legends and the story is fantastic.
I enjoyed McCaffrey's story but it is just not my type of story. It is well done but I could have lived without it.
