Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 4 March 2008
To be honest, fans of Pern will buy this book in droves regardless of what any reviewer says about it. Following on with the successful series that originated in the 1960's this book is a laid back jaunt through an already comfortable world and to be honest I really want a deeper exploration into some of the unexplained myths that are abound. For example, why do the dragons and humans bond etc? I like to know the ins and outs of things but for me this book feels like its following a standard formula and one that many would argue that if it wasn't broken why fix it? For me an author can become complacent and with rising new authors eager to "Ozzie" a dragon to get their books up there, the McCaffreys are going to have to turn out something special for one of their future releases but then again, as I've said fans will buy no matter what.

If you're looking for an easy read that requires no real thinking and will give you the "chicken soup" feeling then this will work for you. However if your palette wants a bit of spice or something new you'll have to look elsewhere.
