Publisher's Summary

The monumental series of audio original fantasy concludes with this collection of three all-new stories by Anne McCaffrey, Raymond E. Feist, and George R.R. Martin. All of them are set in the uncanny realms of their phenomenally popular novels. McCaffrey returns to her work of romance and adventure to tell the story of a "Runner of Pern". Feist's Riftwar Saga is the setting for the revenge of "The Wood Boy". And Martin sets his adventure of "The Hedge Knight" in the generation before his epic A Song of Ice and Fire. These stories are part of Legends, a collection of original short novels by the world's most celebrated authors of fantasy.

2 out of 3 isn't bad

The McCaffrey started off great and I thought I was in for a really good story. I thought it was a really good idea and it was written really well but it was predictable and ended abruptly. I would have like to have seen more.
The Feist story never got my attention and to be honest after an hour I moved on.
Martin was flawless but I didn't care for the reader.

The Hedge Knight almost makes up for the others

So I'm not going to beat around the bush: I love A Song of Ice and Fire, and as such I didn't mind dropping my credit on this book just to get the Dunk and Egg story out of it. And I was not disappointed at all by that story. George R.R. Martin can make me love or hate (or love to hate) a character in a single sentence, and this story is no exception! There really isn't much else to say, aside from being a gushy fangirl.

The other two though. Well. Not so much. McCaffrey's story certainly isn't bad, it's just nothing special. I loved reading the Pern books in middle school and high school, so it was a nice bit of nostalgia, but it just didn't really have anything special to offer. The main character is a typical fantasy heroine: super beautiful and Not Like Other Girls. The plot is very predictable and infuriatingly slow, but underneath it all not a terrible way to pass a couple of hours.

The Feist story though. Wow. I don't remember much of it because I honestly had a very hard time paying attention. I think I remember it being predictable, and having certain undertones that were uncomfortably racist. It was so bad that I am giving this whole book two stars despite that Martin's story is excellent and McCaffrey's merely forgettable. I actually wish I would have just skipped the entire section, I would have been far more satisfied with the book as a whole.
