About the Author
Anne Inez McCaffrey (April 1, 1926–November 21, 2011) was an American-born Irish writer, best known for the Dragonriders of Pern science fiction series. Early in McCaffrey’s forty-six-year career as a writer, she became the first woman to win a Hugo Award for fiction and the first to win a Nebula Award. Her 1978 novel The White Dragon became one of the first science fiction books to appear on the New York Times bestseller list. In 1999 she was the recipient of the Margaret A. Edwards Award, honoring her lifetime contribution to writing for teens. In 2005 the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America named McCaffrey its twenty-second Grand Master, an annual award to living writers of fantasy and science fiction. She was inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame in 2006.

This book plays off what we already know and happens along side the same timelines as the first two books in the series : Dragonflight: The first novel in The Dragonriders of Pern and Dragonquest: Volume II of The Dragonriders of Pern and as well as The White Dragon: Volume III of The Dragonriders of Pern. Reading those makes this book much more enjoyable and unravels pieces of a puzzle laid out by Anne McAffrey.
This book follows Piemur, who we also meet in The White Dragon: Volume III of The Dragonriders of Pern and ties in quite nicely with that book. Menolly does make appearances as well as many other prominent characters from previous books but the main focus is on Piemur and how he came to be who and what he is. Great book!
These stories revolve around Mellony and her journey to become a Journeyman Harper but the last one revolves around her good friend Priemur and his adventures ending on the Southern Continent of Pern. But this leaves me for wanting of more and how each of them fairs with each new chapter.
Again there are a few grammatical errors but not enough to detract from the story line or ability to read the intent of the author. I
I highly recommend this series as a must read for those who enjoy fantasy/si-fi stories.
Many adventures happen to him since he still is helping Menolly. In the end he gets a queen fire lizard, his joy and love.
A great series and I loved all three books
