Dragon's Kin: Dragonriders of Pern, Book 18. Anne McCaffrey. Have always loved Pern.

Dragon's Kin: Dragonriders of Pern, Book 18. The Skies of Pern: Dragonriders of Pern.

Dragon's Time: Dragonriders of Pern by Anne McCaffrey Mass Market . I LOVE the PERN series and have read every book (written by Anne), most of them multiple times.

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. I loved the idea of the story continuing with books by her soon, BUT, as much as I hate to say it, this book was maybe one of the worst written I've ever read.

Dragonriders of Pern is a science fiction series written primarily by American-Irish author Anne McCaffrey, who initiated it in 1967. Beginning in 2003, her middle child Todd McCaffrey has written Pern novels, both solo and jointly with Anne. The series (as of July 2012) comprises 23 novels and several short stories. Most of the short fiction has been collected in two volumes or incorporated in one of the novels, so Dragonriders of Pern is sometimes identified with the 24 books.

Dragonheart is a science fiction novel by Todd McCaffrey in the Dragonriders of Pern series that his mother Anne McCaffrey initiated in 1967. Published by Del Rey Books in 2008, it was the second for Todd as sole author and the twenty-second in the series. Written after his first book, Dragonsblood, it is a concurrent-time book as opposed to a prequel or sequel.

Dragonheart by Todd McCaffrey is the 21st book in the Dragonriders of Pern series. I have just loved the Pern series

Dragonheart by Todd McCaffrey is the 21st book in the Dragonriders of Pern series. I've been a fan of the series since I discovered them in the late 1990's. I must admit that I was a bit leary when I heard that her son, Todd, was starting to take over the series. I wasn't a huge fan of the first couple of books that came out under his name, but this one I really love. I have just loved the Pern series. The dragon personalities are amazingly individualized and each rider distinct.

Anne McCaffrey, one of the world’s most popular authors, is best known for her Dragonriders of Pern® series. She was the first woman to win the two top prizes for science fiction writing, the Hugo and Nebula awards. But then Todd felt the need to openly acknowledge, even belabor, homosexual relationships among the dragon riders - answering the question that didn't really need answering of what happens when two dragons both partnered with male riders mate. Finally, if all this went on during this time period, how is it that absolutely none of it is in any of the records that the characters in later books comb through to solve their versions of the same problems?

The grim specter of sickness looms over the Weyrs of Pern, felling fire-lizards and posing a potentially devastating threat to their dragon cousins, Pern's sole defense against the deadly phenomenon that is Thread. Fiona, the youngest and only surviving daughter of Lord Bemin, is just coming of age, and about to assume the duties of a Weyrwoman, when word spreads that dragons have indeed begun succumbing to the new contagion.

The grim specter of sickness looms over the Weyrs of Pern, felling fire-lizards and posing a potentially devastating threat to their dragon cousins, Pern’s sole defense against the deadly phenomenon that is Thread. Fiona, the youngest and only surviving daughter of Lord Bemin, is just coming of age, and about to assume the duties of a Weyrwoman, when word spreads that dragons have indeed begun succumbing to the new contagion. With the next season of Threadfall quickly approaching, and the already diminished ranks of the dragons once more under siege, every Weyr across Pern is in crisis mode. It is hardly the time for disturbing distractions—such as the strange voice Fiona suddenly hears in her mind at the darkest and most urgent moments.


Circumstances and the mood of the weyrfolk worsen when advance patrols relay the dreaded news that black dust—the unmistakable herald of falling Thread—has been sighted. As more dragons sicken and die, leaving only a new generation of weyrlings too young to succeed them, Weyrleader B’Nik and queen rider Lorana arrive from Benden Weyr to comb Fort Weyr’s archives in a desperate search for clues from the past that may hold the solution to the plague.


But could the actual past itself prove the pathway to salvation for Pern’s stricken dragons and the entire imperiled planet? Guided by a mysterious ally from a wholly unexpected place, and trusting in the unique dragon gift for transcending time, Fiona will join a risky expedition with far-reaching consequences for both Pern’s future and her personal destiny.

  • Groll
We already know what is going on during this book as it is coincident with Dragon's Blood. I imagine this was supposed to be more like Nerlika's Story, a different viewpoint of common events. (Something Anne started to do with increasing frequency over the years in her books.)

What we end up with, however, is an often tedious account of how yet another group of dragons has again gone back in time. This time it's mostly children we watch slowly age...until suddenly we're propelled forward two years, as if some magic page minimum has been reached and a new book can be started.

I was disappointed. I loved Anne's work, and I was okay with most of those they wrote together, but Todd just isn't the same. I love the world and the dragons enough I kept on reading and was excited to get this one when it came out. Unfortunately, I felt it was a lot of rehash and the author seems to have a penchant for casual sex with an unnecessarily strong focus on gay relationships. I don't want that. I want the magic of the dragons, of Pern, and of the hostile world they live in, the secrets of where they came from and how they're going to either conquer this world or leave it.

This book is a must read for all who want to fill in the gaps in the history and development of Pern, its holds and the establishment of wereholds. Although it may lag in spots, the read invigorates the mind, in how society and commerce on Pern was changed by a few willing to set aside traditions and perceptions to focus on the bigger picture --- survival of Pern.

I LOVE the PERN series and have read every book (written by Anne), most of them multiple times. I loved the idea of the story continuing with books by her soon, BUT, as much as I hate to say it, this book was maybe one of the worst written I've ever read. I finished it, because I always finish books, but oh boy, was it dreadful. Character development, story line, story flow - all of the things Anne did so well were just all over the place in this book. It's too bad!

This part of the Pern series has been a joy to explore and keep up with. It’s always intriguing to keep the details and times of the Pern adventures in perspective. I enjoy the Mcafferties’ attention to detail, the tasteful handling of intimacies and honest interactions of personalities. My husband would be appalled to find a review in his name of fantastical fun❣️

Very poor writing. Lots of useless conversations in scenes eating. Adults are just ridiculous and seem to have a complete lack of intelligence. A 13 year old and her younger followers are the only ones figuring things out. Things that several hundred turns would have been thought of long ago. Creepy sexual references to children. Lots of convenient changes to Pern lore. Boring reputation of old themes with a complete lack of grace. The Dragon and rider relationship destroyed. Don`t waste your time reading this book. I miss the world of Pern as created by Anne.

Okay, I love the original dragon books. What I noticed about the later books is how shallow the characters are. They are like puppets, being jerked from one melodramatic scene to the next. Everybody's emotional reactions are extreme and don't follow logically or make sense. Nor are they believable. Sorry, Todd.
This book was very good. There were many unanticipated challenges Fiona and the dragon riders had to face and overcome. I found myself unable to put the book down. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.
