The planet Pern has been colonized for centuries by humans. When humans first settled on this world, they did not take notice of its sister planet, which had an indigenous life form that attempted to land on Pern when it came within reach. These silver "threads" fell in a destructive wave on the temperate lands of Pern once every 200 years, destroying all life they encountered. To combat this menace, the inhabitants of Pern developed a species of dragon that could burn these threads out of the sky before they touched down. Now, centuries have passed between threadfalls, and the danger of thread is considered a myth. However, a dragon rider named F'lar knows that the riders are once again needed. This fine production is recommended wherever McCaffrey ( Moreta: Dragonlady of Pern , Audio Reviews, LJ 9/15/93) is popular.

A retread that disappointed. Not much of a flow, prefer
"Modern" YA series.
This is a very good book that fits into the Pern series of stories by Anne McCaffrey. Well written and engrossing, this book is a must buy for alternate world science fiction.Published 14 days ago by Timothy A. Nichols
I think I'd enjoy the series more if the characters did more than obsess about Benden Wine..Published 16 days ago by aQuixRuby
It’s been a long time since I read any Anne McCaffrey, so I thought I’d go back to the first novel of hers I’ve ever read and see if I still enjoyed it as much as ever. Read morePublished 27 days ago by Literary Picks
