Another Turn, and the deadly silver Threads began falling again. So the bold dragonriders took to the air once more, and their magnificent flying dragons swirled and swooped, belching flames that destroyed the shimmering strands before they reach the ground.

But F'lar knew he had to find a better way to protect his beloved Pern, and he had to find it before the rebellious Oldtimers could breed anymore dissent....before his brother F'nor would be foolhardy enough to launch another suicide mission...and before those dratted fire-lizards could stir up any more trouble!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Renee | 2/12/2014

    " As soon as I had finished reading Dragon Flight I wanted to read this one. Loved it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Edith Hope Bishop | 2/7/2014

    " Just didn't manage to impress me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Siobhan Parker | 1/28/2014

    " In my review of Dragonflight, I compared that starter Pern novel to a series premiere of a television show; although it was a bit rough around the edges, it showed some signs of promise. Dragonquest, although still not perfect, was an improvement over its prequel. The story was just as good, and the writing was better. Now, I just hope that the upswing continues throughout the rest of the Pern series, as long as it is. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allena Williams | 12/31/2013

    " The continuation of the story of Pern started in Dragonflight. I really love this series. I do get a little miffed at the "women" being regulated to the kitchen and the housework. But the introduction of the fire lizards in this story is wonderful. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vlad | 12/25/2013

    " It just gets old after a while... still like the "created world" concept, but... yea. Bathroom reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 April | 12/17/2013

    " I love being transported to an new world and culture. I love this entire series. Very entertaining. Grabbed me right into it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christy | 12/16/2013

    " This is considered the first book in the series, but time line wise it is set quite in the future of the origional landing. For the first novel it is great and I can read it over and over. Wonderful book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 11/28/2013

    " I was kind of whatever about this one for some reason, until they found the mini dragons! EEEE! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joene | 11/8/2013

    " Second in the Pern saga, more about how the holds developed and why. Great for all ages! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David Giannini | 11/5/2013

    " big improvement over the first book. but it doesn't draw me in like I want it to. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paula | 11/2/2013

    " I have read this series several times, because I like the society that Anne McCaffrey has created, and some of the characters are very real. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Justin | 10/14/2013

    " This book mostly follows F'lar and F'nor as they meet various challenges from the Oldtimers, the Lord Holders, and other Weyr folk. They find and impress the first fire lizards. Who doesn't want a pet dragon? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joyce McKune | 8/4/2013

    " The names are difficult to remember and keep track of. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 5/24/2013

    " Not as good as the first one Dragonflight but still good. Felt more like a middle book with no real ending. Hoping the next one nicely wraps up the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Inspired Kathy | 3/28/2013

    " Great 2nd book in the Dragonriders of Pern trilogy. I'm amazed I'd never heard of these books before since they've been around for so long. They are really well written and engaging. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mitchell | 2/6/2013

    " Continuing a quick romp through Dragonriders of Pern. Its been a long while and I'm enjoying visiting this old friend (while waiting to be deluged by new books from the library). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Max Ostrovsky | 1/19/2013

    " I am really enjoying this series. Lots of fun and surprises. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Greg | 1/6/2013

    " This book starts slowly and is kind of annoying. I had a hard time maintaining interest in all the court intrigues, but the ending was really well done and I am looking forward to book 3. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff Cadoff | 11/14/2012

    " Liked this so much that I named my cat after the heroine. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina | 5/12/2012

    " McCaffrey is a talented author. I sincerely regret taking so long to pick up her books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily Rose | 4/1/2012

    " A very good sequel, the plot fills out more in this one and the story becomes a little more fast paced. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Monica | 2/12/2012

    " A story of Lessa and F'lar's struggle to unite the planet, and in particular the dragonriders who've come forward in time, to battle thread. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mollie *scoutrmom* | 1/30/2012

    " A really good war story set on another planet somewhere in the future. The plot hinges on the difficulties of getting a disparate group to unify against a common enemy. Wonderful characters, but I feel one has to have read the first book in order to fully appreciate this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason G Gouger | 10/5/2011

    " This book wasn't quite as good as the first in the series, but considering this is a re-read I know that it contains A LOT of setup for books to come. It does maintain interest throughout though and despite it's wanderings maintains a compelling story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chiyomi | 9/10/2011

    " Good book! The series is a fun one! Sad sometimes, but fun! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 5/29/2011

    " Not as good as the first. It would get exciting, and then the characters would sit and talk. And talk and talk and talk. Still a decent book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Max | 5/27/2011

    " I am really enjoying this series. Lots of fun and surprises. "

    " Amazing. The world Anne McCaffrey created is just amazing and everybody should read her books. "

    " Loved all the McCaffrey Pern novels I read years ago. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane | 4/10/2011

    " I have such a crush on F'nor it's riddiculous.

    I enjoyed this installment and I'm looking forward to what happens next. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Suvi | 4/4/2011

    " It was just as awesome as book one. Can't wait to read the next. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angie | 1/29/2011

    " Continues the story of F'lar and Lessa. Very engaging story; it has everything you would want: intrigue, tragedy, heroism. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 1/18/2011

    " Really liked how Brekke and F'nor got together. That was super cute :) It was really confusing when F'nor went to the Red Star though cause he went and he almost died, and then suddenly he was back. There was almost no description of the red star. Wish there had been more about Lessa and F'lar. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 1/15/2011

    "
    If you love dragon books and great characters McCaffrey is your author. These books in my opinion are for adults. The dragons and humans have unmoral habits. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily Rose | 1/7/2011

    " A very good sequel, the plot fills out more in this one and the story becomes a little more fast paced. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brandi | 1/1/2011

    " Wonderful book, quite riveting as are all the books of this series. "
