In a time when no Thread has fallen for centuries - when, indeed, many are beginning to dare to hope that Thread will never fall again - a boy is born to Harper Hall. His name is Robinton, and he is destined to be one of the most famous and beloved leaders Pern has ever known.

It is a perilous time for harpers. They sing of Thread, yet more and more people are beginning to doubt the return of that deadly scourge. They teach reading, writing, history, but Fax - who hates the harpers in general - is determined to keep his growing area of influence free of the learning that might sow unrest. And they extol the dragonriders, whom many view increasingly as a drain on the resources of the Holds. Now harpers are being turned away from the holds; and, worse yet, they are being derided, attacked, even beaten.

It is the climate of unrest that Robinton will come into his own. For despite the tragedies that beset his own life, he continues to believe in music and in the dragons, and is determined to save his beloved Pern from itself . . .so that the dragonriders can be ready to fly against the dreaded Thread when it at last returns!

    " A whole book devoted to one of my favorite characters in the Pern series! Probably not a good entry into the series, as the focus is on the backstory of Robinton, his early life, and how he became Masterharper. "

    " Slow start to this one but great character development and relationships. "

    " Anne McCaffrey's, 'The Masterharper of Pern' is a masterpiece. Whether or not you have read any of her Dragon Riders series you will enjoy this tale of Masterharper Robinton's early years and first loves. On the young planet of Pern the most effective educating and communicating is done by harpers. The harpers are knowledgeable in arts, music, communicating with drum messages and of course romance and intrigue. I'm sure you will be entranced and will look for more of Ms. McCaffreys Dragon rider series to read as follow-ups to this imaginative tale. "

    " Fills in the gaps in Pern's history. No nearly as well crafted as her others Pern books. "
