This book can almost be seen as a taster for three of Ms Kenyon's worlds: The League, the Kinley MacGregor novels, and the Dark Hunter series.
In the first story, the main male character is the son of the lead character in Fire and Ice. It was a bit of shock to find he was now the father of a brood, but still, did not detract from the story.
The second story has the sort of knight in shining armour/medieval setting of the Kinley MacGregor novels. They are not my favourite, but this story was still OK.
The third story is based around the Were-Hunters from the Dark Hunter world. Sebastian is a Drakos and Arcadian. As a tale, it serves as an excellent introduction to the Were-Hunter world, but at the same time, it is biased towards one side of that story, namely the Arcadian as opposed to the Katagari. As some of my favourite books feature Katagari males, I would advise any reader to remember that there are two sides to any story.
Overall, an excellent intro to Ms Kenyon's other books, and one that does not require an in-depth knowledge of her stories to enjoy.
