Reviews

Once again, the Red Star appears in the skies over Pern, triggering the fall of Thread, a corrosive and deadly spaceborn spore that comes in Passes that last approximately 50 years. This time, however, the dragons bred by the colonists of Pern to fight Thread are dying from a mysterious plague, and the population of Pern faces extinction. While gold-dragon rider Fiona concentrates on learning to heal sick and injured dragons and their riders, the harper Kindan and ex-dragon rider Lorana search for a cure. Even so, the dragons' numbers are dwindling, and Fiona decides that help must come from the past-or the future. The latest addition to the popular canon of novels set on the planet Pern continues the story of a trio of unique individuals whose commitment to the welfare of Pern requires not only devotion but also great sacrifice. The son of sf Grand Master Anne McCaffrey, creator of the Pern series, McCaffrey steps gracefully into the role of his mother's successor, exploring new times and places in Pern's history. VERDICT Pern fans will enjoy following the destinies of the characters from Dragonholder, Dragonsblood, and Dragonheart. [Ebook ISBN 978-0-345-40973-4.] (c) Copyright 2010.
