Great light read

I'm a Sherrilyn Kenyon fan so this book was a must for me. It has three stories in it. The first one "Fire and Ice' goes with her League series. It's the story of Adron, the son of Nykyrian and Kiara from Born of Ice. Adron is the tortured hero who lives in pain from injuries he suffered saving innocent lives. A loner, he drinks away his days and keeps everyone at a distance. Livia is the damsel in distress being forced into an arranged marriage. Livia decides at least one decision will be her own. She will choose the man she gives her virginity to and maybe foil her father's plans for her in the process. They meet at The Golden Crona and Livia decides Adron is the only candidate worth the running. Adron is reluctant but captivated by her innocence. Sparks fly until Livia's angry daddy shows up. Adron grasps the situation and just how much trouble Livia has gotten herself into. So he marries her himself but has no intention of letting her close to his heart. What kind of husband can he be to her when he lives in constant pain. A stay in the hospital after a night of outstanding lovemaking is kind of off putting. Of course Livia is not put off so easily and sets out to heal his injured heart and win it for herself.She has been disowned by her father and can never see her family again. She can see the man he can be once again. So she brushes of his angry defensive gestures and wins his heart. They don't have a normal sex life but so what? They are in love. Then Adron has to go and get in a fight with his brother and pushes him so far he forgets his injuries and bam brother socks him in the chest. OH NO! Adron's body can't take that. He's dying. Livia can save him but she might die in the process. Her healing powers could make her a vegetable. It happened to her grandmother and is her worst fear. She couldn't have a life without Adron though and he deserves a happy life after all he sacrificed. So she heals him while saying her goodbyes. So sad. Adron wakes a completely healed man but wait..what's wrong with Livia. She's everything to him. He can't loose her! EMTs take Livia to the hospital while Adron goes to break down her daddy's door if need be. Livia needs help and he's going to find it. Daddy refuses and has him thrown out but he gets a message to her mother. Adron returns to the hospital. She gave her life for his. She is living her worst fear lying there a vegetable. He can't turn off the machines though. He can't give up. He needs her. So he sits holding her hand when in walks Livia's mom. She heals Livia and scolds her not to ever do that again. Her human half can't take it. Happy happy joy joy! Everyones alive and they can finally get busy without a trip to the hospital. Nykyrian and Kiara and Adron's siblings pop up in this story and are very supportive to Livia. I liked getting a glimpse of them after reading Born of Night. It was a great little story and one I'm sure I'll read again.

The next story isn't related to any other series she has written. It's called "knightly Dreams". It's quirky and fun. A story about Taryn who has just caught her boyfriend in the throes with a coworker. Having the worst possible day her car brakes down too. She decides to check out the bookstore across the street while waiting on a tow. Where a very special book awaits that needs an ending. An ending she must determine.

The third story in the book "Dragonswan" goes with her Were-Hunter series and I'm out of charact

I bought this book to read Adron's story in Fire & Ice and while I loved the 100 pages I really felt cheated. There were so many things about this story that needed expanding and explaining especially if you've read the other League Series books. Ms. Kenyon admits writing a complete novel but for some reason decided to publish a novella instead. Please, please reconsider your decision. If Devyn got his own book then Adron should have one too! I had already read the Dragonswan story which I enjoyed and Knightly Dreams was very original and a fun read.

    Really enojable!

    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. Great read and I gave it 5 stars for a book of shorts it was more than I expected. Another great Kenyon!

    Loved the first third

    I only read the first story. The one about Adron. I love this series. Love, love. I wish Adron had been given a full book instead of less than 100 pages. Any fans of the League series needs to read this short. Unfortunately you have to buy the whole book to get it. I guess I'll give the other shorts a try. Hopefully they will be just as good.
