Now that Pern can look forward to a future without the threat of Threadfall, the people are free to leave their protective stone holds and spread across more of the planet, as well as improve their lives with the newly discovered ancient technology. Not everyone is happy, though. Some resist the change, and consider anything new to be an "abomination." And the dragonriders are uncertain: without Thread, what will their purpose be in Pernese society? Then a new danger - again from the skies - looms. Once again, the people must pull together . . . And turn to the only ones who can solve the crisis: the dragonriders of Pern! Download and start listening now!

    " All of Anne's books, even if they form a trilogy, can be read alone and not much gets lost. Each of her books are their own story. Sadly, that is not the case with this one. I felt like I picked up a book that the first few chapters ripped out which left me lost and always a little behind. There were a lot of different people that popped in and out with very little warning and despite there being a ton of dialogue, they really didn't talk about what was going on very much. It was hard to get involved with them because it really felt like they were in their own little world and I was sitting at a distance eavesdropping and trying to figure out what is going on based on what I could hear. I'm just glad that I borrowed this book from the library and didn't waste my money on it. "

    " I don't usually cry over books, but there were some spots that i teared up over. I'm glad that Anne Mccaffrey got to finish it before she died. :) "

    " A great tribute to the First Lady of Dragons. The survival of Pern rests on the shoulders of the first female Blue dragon rider. Xhinna is both dragon rider, weyrwoman, and flight leader. It is her strength and courage that brings the dragons of Pern back to full strength in time to fight Thread once again. "
