The next installment in the story of Pern (for fans only).,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Skies of Pern (The dragons of Pern) (Paperback)
Not the strongest book in this long saga, possibly because having previously engineered the future demise of the 'Thread' threat, a major plank of the whole series plot has been removed. This story continues the softer, less saga-like background tone of recent books and once again neatly manages to focus on a minor character from previous stories whilst keeping the major players in the story line.
I enjoyed it, but I always enjoy McCaffrey's stories especially when they concern familiar places and characters. A must-read for fans - not a good place to start.
I suspect a further volume is in the works, too many lose ends and a need to address the unsatisfactory plot developments for it to end here - I hope.
