Next is the text detailing the details of the plot. Favorite Book or Author. For some reason, my least favorite was definitely not the worst offender but it annoyed me to no end. Few are better at mixing elements of high fantasy and hard science fiction There is love and tragedy and perseverance.


The gilded belt and the knife were just the proper dress accouterments. Each man began arguing his claim at once. Robinton grinned to himself.

T’bor then reveals that an unhappy Prideth told Orth that Kylara took a fire lizard clutch to a Hold, but didn’t say which as she didn’t like the place. After Lessa leaves, Brekke abruptly makes love to F’nor. Behold the awkwardness that is F’nor. My brother gave them to me and I fell in love with fantasy.

The plot and some of the characters failed to keep my interest the entire time and I did find myself waiting for something to happen. Any one deliberately antagonizing them for no cause found himself the butt of a satirical tune which would be played around the land.

Appreciated the masterminding, though would have liked more iron in that velvet glove.

F’lar then muses about them being the culmination of Drqgonquest of research, but briefly fears about what dragonriders will be needed for if they manage to destroy Thread once and for all.

However, author Anne McCafferey fell into the Fantasy trope of using clunky, unpronouncable names as dargonquest means of being original.

This was a matter for men to settle, F’lar thinks at one point, although at least he’d been thinking Lessa might be helpful the moment before. Either the success of the Pern novellas spawned the need for a sequel so rapidly that McCaffrey had little chance for the fleshing out and editing of a good story, or McCaffrey is a weak writer who just got lucky on her first Pern novellas.
