Publisher's Summary

The second Dragonriders of Pern novel from New York Times best seller Anne McCaffrey.

The Weyrs are full again, with old and new riders taking to the skies to fight Thread once again. But all is not well across Pern - the Oldtimers are struggling to adapt to the changes their centuries-long absence has brought and F'Lar and Lessa must carefully balance their conservative ways against those of their allies in the Crafts and Halls.

As new technology makes the Red Star appear closer than ever, F'Lar's brother F'Nor starts to look for ways to rid Pern of Thread once and for all...but at what risk?

Beautiful series about the Dragons of Pern

Having read all of Anne McCaffrey’s books on Pern many years ago, this was such a lovely way to rediscover how much I loved the dragon stories. The narrator Sophie Aldred has a gentle lyrical voice and her ability to change inflections for each character is skilfully done. I thoroughly enjoyed my trip back to Pern.

Dragon Quest.

Anne McCaffrey is one of the greatest author's the world has ever seen. From the moment you start one of her books, you will find it hard to put down and it is not only the Dragon riders of Pern that will catch you in it's world of delight, but also such wonderful book's as the Catteni sequence, the Tower and the hive, the Talent series or any of her books that have been written in callboration such as the Acorna series or the Powers that be. If you enjoy science fiction fantasy then you should take a look at this wonderful author's works. You can also find out in her collaboration, some more fantastic author's who have become some of my favourite authors, two of them are Margaret Ball and Elizabeth Ann Scarborough. So get a good drink, get comfortable and enjoy the greatest adventure you can have without leaving the comfit of your home.

Brilliant book, wonderfully read

The Pern novels have been constant companions of mine most of my life. Not having much time to read at the moment the audiobook was a brilliant way to cast back to the start. Sophie Aldred's reading is perfect, giving the characters real life. A must listen
