From the Inside Flap
The sequel to Dragongirl
Although Lorana cured the dragons' sickness, so many died from the disease that there are no longer enough dragons to fight the deadly Thread, and more dragons and their riders die each Threadfall.
With their numbers dwindling, Lorana makes the decision to fly forward in time in a desperate bid to bring dragons from the future to fight Thread. She knows that jumping so far in time will result in her losing her baby - but without her action all life on Pern is doomed.
Left behind at Telgar Weyr, Fiona, Kindan and T'mar realize what Lorana has done. They are distraught, but two things save them from complete despair. The first is that Fiona is expecting twins, the second the fact all the dragonriders are exhausted, a sure sign that they are Timing it - existing elsewhere in space and time. This gives them hope for the future and confidence that Lorana has found a way through time to help them. They just have to trust in her and wait for her to lead them through this most perilous of times...
