From Publishers Weekly
Older and wiser after three turns in the past, young Weyrwoman Fiona and Talenth, her golden queen dragon, return to continue the fight against the deadly Threadfall in McCaffrey's romantic, highflying sequel to Dragonheart. This time out the battle is made more difficult by a horrifying disease that is steadily killing off the dragons. Despite finding a cure, the fear persists that there won't be enough dragons to battle the next Threadfall. In the meantime, a kinky love quartette between Fiona, dragonrider T'Mar, Weyrwoman and ex-queenrider Lorana, and Harper/Weyrlingmaster Kindan creates friction, especially when both Lorana and Fiona become pregnant as threats to Pern increase. McCaffrey's assured characterizations and ease with referencing Pern's elaborate history make this a hardy fantasy that faithfully echoes and builds upon his mother's original vision. (July) (c)

Young Fiona, rider of the gold queen dragon Talenth, has just returned from three years at the abandoned Weyr (or dragon domicile) Ingen, to which injured dragons and riders had gone to heal. The place is 10 Turns in the past, yet only days have passed at Fort Weyr when they return. The Weyr (dragons, riders, and support) are still fighting Thread shorthanded because the plague is still killing dragons, and dragons and riders are going down in battle. Suddenly all Telgar dragons and riders are lost Between. Since Talenth is the oldest queen who isn't leading a Weyr, Fiona becomes Weyrwoman of Telgar, where she galvanizes the people and attracts dragon riders and healers to join. The constant Thread falls cause rapid attrition of dragons and riders, and the search for a cure for the plague and the fight for survival become ever more desperate. Adding fascination is the book's exploration of the possibilities of dragons going Between from one time to another just as they go almost instantly from place to place on the planet. Todd McCaffrey continues carving his own niche in the Pern canon while remaining faithful to the world-building and characterizations that have made his mother Anne's series a perennial favorite. --Sally Estes --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The book is written about an adolescent woman. Written from the perspective of an adolescent woman and narrative is the same.
Few questions are answered, or posed. Little consequences.
But, if you are à young woman who wants to think àbout being a dragon rider of Pern. You will probably enjoy this book.
Todd McCaffrey does his mother Anne proud with his story. With new characters, a new storyline and his own flair, I was encapsulated in his rendition of Dragongirl.
I enjoyed Dragongirl, it is exciting and fast paced. But I have to say that I think the earlier books were better. Maybe it has to do with this being a complex multi-book story and I guzzled the whole thing like cheap wine! The only problem I have with Dragongirl (and the rest of the books in this saga) is that in these, the female lead characters are so young. I'm not sure I'm comfortable with 12 and 13-year-old girls being in the adult situations that being a dragonrider entails. But I will always love the Dragonriders series and will definitely buy the next one Todd writes!
