    "George R.R. Martin worth the price of admission!"

    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.

    "Both storys are good"

    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 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 Is Flawless and McCaffrey Gets It Done"

    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.

    "Beyond Between"

    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.

    "Watch Out for Obsenities"

    Did not think much of either of these books.
    Really George, are all the obscenities necessary?
