Another enthralling adventure in the Pern universe. ( )

I vaguely remember this books main characters, and do remember the ending, but the middle I remember as dragging a bit. Probably would have given it a 3 stars but cannot rate it without re-reading. ( )

There she goes beating the proverbial dead horse again. This is just the first three books told from a dozen other points of view. To begin with the many different points of view (which don't merge until somewhere around the middle of the book) was a bit disjointed and irritating to me. It took me a long time to get interested in the story at all and nearly just stopped reading the series all together. In the end I didn't hate it, but it is for SURE my least favorite. ( )

I don't think I liked this one much, I don't remember all that much about it. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0345369335, Mass Market Paperback)

As long as the people of Pern could remember, the Holds had protected them from Thread, the deadly silver strands that fell from the sky and ravaged the land. In exchange for sanctuary in the huge stone fortresses, the people tithed to their Lord Holders, who in turn supported the Weyrs, whose dragons were Pern's greatest weapon against Thread.

But not everyone on Pern was part of that system of mutual care and protection, particularly those who had been rendered holdless as punishment for wrongdoing. And there were some, like Jayge's trader clan, who simply preferred the freedom of the roads to the security of a hold. Others, like Aramina's family, had lost their holds through injustice and cruelty. For all the holdless, life was a constant struggle for survival.

Then, from the ranks of the criminals and the disaffected, rose a band of renegades, led by the Lady Thella. No one was safe from Thella's depredations, and now her quarry was Aramina, reputed to have a telepathic link with dragons. But when Thella mistakenly vented her rage on Jayge's family, she made a dangerous mistake. For Jayge was bent on revenge . . . and he would never let her have the girl who heard dragons!
