Then one evening the unnaturally seductive Sebastian appears. He claims to hold the key to solving the tapestry’s mysteries… He also claims to be a dragon slayer trapped between two worlds.

For Channon there’s only one way to finally uncover the secrets of the intricate embroidery-by following this stranger into a fantastic...

The Story Behind The Story

These three stories all appeared in other anthologies with other great writers. At fan demand, Berkley pulled them into one anthology.

Fire & Ice (The League), was originally written as a full novel. One day I hope to go back and lengthen it.

Dragonswan was written not long after I'd handed in Fantasy Lover.

Knightly Dreams is a story I conceived on the way back from New Orleans. It's how I see the publishing world and what happens to characters when a writer gives up and stops writing them. It's a quirky little piece that relates to nothing else I've written.

Is fire&nice ever going to be released as an audio book? I'm re reading the series with my mother, but her eyes are bad and an audio book is a better option to me reading it over the phone.

Loved Adron's short story, but would've loved it if it were a whole book :)

I was wondering if sherrilyn kenyon would continue The League Generation 2 books. Will she write more books about the future kids or is there only gonna be the two?

Noria, February 3, 2014

    She will, but they contain spoilers for Gen 1 so Gen 1 needs to be written first.

Written in dos on a 5.25 floppy. I can convert that!!! (yes yes, consider me the "Syn" of geekdom)

Love Fire & Ice but the only thing I'm having trouble figuring out is if it took place after or before Born of Ice. I tried to rationalise it out myself but I could reconcile the ages and details in both stories with my theory that it took place after Born of Ice. And because I'm the dork that cares about these things, it haunts me that I can't tell where it fits into the timeline. :(

    It occurs after.

It says in the series FAQ that Adron's story was originally a full novel. Can we please please please read that? His story is one of my favorites, but it's just so short this way!

Grace, July 18, 2013

    Sherri wrote that in DOS on a 5.25 floppy. She'd have to completely rewrite it and she might at some point.

    MB_Staff, July 23, 2013

I was really happy to see another League novel, especially after getting a small taste of Adron in Born of Ice. Unfortunately, I am unable to download this ebook as it is not available in the UK iTunes store. Gutted! :-(

    It should be. Will check on that.

    Carl, MB Staff, March 22, 2013

In Other Worlds book page. Why does the "about the book" talk about a different book than the "read book excerpt"???

Zana, May 21, 2012

    There are 3 stories inside In Other Worlds so the book excerpt is from different stories, but all are in In Other Worlds.

Would love to have Adron's book lengthened into a full novel... Couple of chapters are not just enough!!! Love it still though!
