Young Fiona, rider of the gold queen Talenth, has returned from the past, where she and a group of dragons and riders fled so that the wounded could heal from their previous battles. Gone only three days, yet aged more than three years, Fiona is no longer a child but a woman prepared to fight against the Thread that threatens to destroy her world.

Fiona's life takes a pivotal turn when a shocking tragedy thrusts her into a position of authority. Now she finds herself leading weyrfolk who have a hard time trusting a senior Weyrwoman who is both young and an outsider.

But even greater challenges lie ahead: Thread is falling and there are too few dragons to stem the tide. Many have died from the recent plague, and even with the influx of newly mature dragons from the past, the depleted fighting force is no match for the intensifying Threadfall. Fiona knows that something must be done, and what she proposes is daring and next to impossible. But if her plan succeeds, it just might save them all.

    " Filler, Fluff, and Ridiculousness. Don't bother. There's no story there. Highly dissapointed in what they've done to the Pern series. Read the early ones, but don't bother with these. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe | 1/23/2014

    " Todd is not as good as his Mom. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michele bookloverforever | 1/6/2014

    " pern...geared for a younger audience but full of dragons, danger, courage and perseverance...ingenuity. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Bunnyk | 1/5/2014

    " I wasn't keen on this latest Pern offering. Todd doesn't write anywhere nearly as coherently as his mother, and he is far too full of doom 'n' gloom. A little light would be nice! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steve Prekup | 1/4/2014

    " Good story and good continuity with the novels of the past. The ending feels a bit rushed though, especially as compared to the detailed character and plot development that occurred throughout the rest of the book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Peg | 12/26/2013

    " More Blech, forced myself to finish it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lila | 12/12/2013

    " I truly love to read about the Dragonriders of Pern.....somehow Todd McCaffrey's novels are not quite as enticing as his mother's. Still, a pleasant read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa Williams | 12/7/2013

    " This book was a hard read. It was confusing and jumpy in parts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Ann | 10/2/2013

    " This was a disappointment because it seemed to muddle around. Anne McCaffrey set up such an interesting society and this book just didn't do her justice! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Regina Boyer | 5/11/2013

    " I love that the son is doing as superb a job as his mother in the series. I have loved all of the boooks from the first to now. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mike Stafford | 4/13/2013

    " This book is very disjointed. I had trouble finding the story. I also had a problem with the relationships given the ages of the characters. I know Pern is its own world but, really, Todd is writting for our world and these kinds of relationships for a 16 year old is kind of creepy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kerry | 5/30/2012

    " I love the PERN books. All of them. That being said, if you have not experienced the PERN universe, do not start with this book. This book is transitional. It is the middle piece of a bigger story, and has an ending that is not an ending. Needless to say, I cannot wait for the next book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 carmen! | 5/7/2012

    " This one was kind of disappointing, actually. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly Linzey | 4/5/2012

    " was a bit disapointed in this one.... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 1/27/2012

    " Part of the Dragonriders of Pern series. This is an escape read for me -- definitely not for everyone. This was one of the weaker books in the series (close to 20 books, I think). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 11/21/2011

    " I like the Pern books, this one is a bit confusing, and ends with a cliffhanger, which I generally do not like. Luckily I had the next one ready to go or I would have liked it less. Worth ending, though for Pern fans. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sara | 5/26/2011

    " My one complaint is that it was a cliff-hanger, leading into the next book. Other than that, I loved it. The characters are wonderful, their emotional struggles and physical hardships engrossing. I cried pretty much throughout this book--someone was always dying--but I loved it anyway. "

    " An excellent addition to the Pern Universe. I imagine I will enjoy reading it again after I've read the 6 books that come before it! "

    " What has he done to Pern??? This book was horrible. Horrible writing, horrible plot, horrible pace. "
