Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Although not a candidate on the Hatching Grounds, young Fiona, daughter of Fort Hold’s Lord Holder, impresses the only queen-dragon hatchling. She enters the frenzy of feeding, oiling, scratching, and tending the baby dragon as well as learning her responsibilities as a Weyrwoman. Then tragedy strikes as dragons begin to sicken and die. With the fall of Thread looming, will there be enough dragons to fight it? Even though the watch-whers guide and help the dragons fight Thread in the darkness, many dragons and riders are injured. And the threat of Thread is still imminent. The only solution is to send the injured back in time 10 Turns to heal in Ingen, the only empty Weyr. Those living in that past must not become aware of the visitors to avoid influencing events that for the latter have already occurred. When healed, the injured will return to their own time a few days after they left it. Anne McCaffrey’s son meticulously chronicles the creation of a new society at Ingen and maintains the series’ strong portrayal of human-dragon relationships. His second Pern novel further confirms that he is the one to carry the torch of the extremely popular ongoing saga. --Sally Estes --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.


“The torch has been passed and burns more brightly than ever in this latest chapter of the venerable Pern saga, the first of what one hopes will be many solo efforts by the son of series creator Anne McCaffrey. . . . This stand-alone tale fits beautifully into the existing history and style of earlier books while still breaking new ground.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Todd McCaffrey does something I didn’t think anyone could do: he writes Anne McCaffrey’s Pern. . . . This is Pern, in the hands of a new master-grade harper, carefully trained in the old traditions, but scoring his own ballads. May the saga continue!” —David Weber, author of By Schism Rent Asunder

“A dramatic, thoroughly captivating tale, steeped in the lore and well-drawn characterizations of the people and the dragons for which the Pern novels are prized. Fans old and new will be delighted.”—Booklist

“Todd McCaffrey has inherited his mother’s storytelling ability. His dragons and fire-lizards, his harpers in Harper’s Hall, carry on the great traditions–and add much to them. Huzzah, Todd! You have learned wisdom indeed.”—Jane Yolen, author of Briar Rose

“Highly recommended . . . strong storytelling and fully developed human and dragon characters.”—Library Journal, starred review

“[A] compelling read.”—SF Crowsnest

“Todd McCaffrey has hit his stride with Dragonheart, giving fans an entertaining continuation of the hugely popular saga.”—BookLoons
