Customer Review

Anyone whose ever thought about buying a fantasy novel must have encountered Anne's Pern series in their time. However as the series has moved into the 21st Century the reins are being handed over to her son, Todd. Here the two collaborate for the second time and the clear distinctions between the old and new blend to bring it to a new generation as well as making the series apply to the "older fan".

Always prolific the writing keeps you glued and is perhaps a little too clinical in the end. Readers will of course enjoy the book with fans devouring it in short time indeed. However I do wonder for how much longer the series can continue and how new ideas will continue to be generated. In a modern world with many new authors tackling Dragon fiction, she remains the author to match or to cross with Dragon Fire battle. Few will draw with her and fewer still will manage to withdraw with anything other than a singed record. Anne's work will remain up there for a good few years more and is still the author to judge this particular subsection genre by, however as a matter of personal preference its not her best, although it is still a gripping novel better than a number of others.
