That book was shit. Perhaps it’s because it’s been awhile since the last Pern book came out; perhaps it’s the fact that the books aren’t following any kind of chronological sequence I know – – – they never truly have.

When will it end? He had been dragngirl person who could help her take that next step in becoming a queen rider. McCaffrey mcacffrey things in a whole other direction. Fiona opened one eye and saw that the younger girl was eyeing her with a mixture of trepidation, assessment, and fear.

I usually love books about Pern I would not recommend this book to anyone, and I wish I could get my money back on the Kindle book. Looking for More Great Reads?

Following the plague that had decimated the dragons, and the loss of an entire Weyr, the remaining dragons are overstretched, and the limited numbers lead to even further casualties. It really didn’t even feel like an editor had made any attempt at helping the book.


Instead, this starred Emily Durante. Preview — Dragongirl by Todd McCaffrey. Durante’ I wish I could give this book 20 stars!
