Summary
Fantasy fans, rejoice! Seven years after writer and editor Robert Silverberg made publishing history with <i>Legends</i>, his acclaimed anthology of original short novels by some of the greatest writers in fantasy fiction, the long-awaited second volume is here. <i>Legends II</i> picks up where its illustrious predecessor left off. All of the bestselling writers represented in <i>Legends II</i> return to the special universe of the imagination that its author has made famous throughout the world. Whether set before or after events already recounted elsewhere, whether featuring beloved characters or compelling new creations, these masterful short novels are both mesmerizing stand-alones—perfect introductions to the work of their authors—and indispensable additions to the epics on which they are based. Beyond any doubt, <i>Legends II</i> is the fantasy event of the season. <br /><br /><b>ROBIN HOBB</b> returns to the Realm of the Elderlings with “Homecoming,” a powerful tale in which exiles sent to colonize the Cursed Shores find themselves sinking into an intoxicating but deadly dream . . . or is it a memory?<br /><b>GEORGE R.

FEIST</b> turns from the great battles of the Riftwar to the story of one soldier, a young man about to embark on the ride of his life, in “The Messenger.”<br /><b>ELIZABETH HAYDON</b> tells of the destruction of Serendair and the fate of its last defenders in “Threshold,” set at the end of the Third Age of her Symphony of Ages series.<br /><b>NEIL GAIMAN</b> gives us a glimpse into what befalls the man called Shadow after the events of his Hugo Award–winning novel <i>American Gods</i> in “The Monarch of the Glen.”<br /><b>TERRY BROOKS</b> adds an exciting epilogue to <i>The Wishsong of Shannara</i> in “Indomitable,” the tale of Jair Ohmsford’s desperate quest to complete the destruction of the evil Ildatch . . . armed only with the magic of illusion.<br /><br /><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>
