For 400 turns ~(years) no theread has fallen from the sky to devour any living organisim on Pern and many believe that this herald the end of years of fear and a normal life at last. But Threads do return but there is only one Weyr with 200 dragons left to defend the whole of Pern. Lessa discovers an old teaching ballad scored by a harper over 400 turns ago about how the 5 other weyrs on Pern suddently disappeared over night. Lessa then begins her historical Journey on ramoth back 400 turns to persuade the "Oldtimer" dragon riders to come into her future to fight Thread, and suceeds.
The abouve is a VERY general synopsis of the story, but believe me this is a story worth reading. I started halfway through the whole series called the MasterHarper of Pern and I have been hooked ever since. These are some of the best fantasy books ever written and I strongly urge anyone who comes across this review to read them all!!! :)

So what makes these books so good? They're unique. There's little or nothing in them that I've seen in other books and stories. The characters are unforgetable, and indeed so rememberable I once considered naming one of future my kids after one.
So, compared to other books, where does this one lie? It's a completely, totatly different type of story than the Lord of the Rings,yet, Anne McCaffery is the master if the sci-fi fantasy field just as Tolkien is of sheer fantasy. Just as Tolkien is fantasy king, so is McCaffery. But for the record: they are completely different books.
In sixth grade, when I first read these novels, I wrote a poem about them, all of them. And for the record, in one of the more recent additions, I cried for hours, it seemed. Don't miss out on the first two books you should read of this unbelievable tale of time, dragons, and love. After you read these two, you'll be forever hooked, forever a fan, because these books steal hearts.
