This installment was much more political with less thread fighting as some major changes are made on Pern. F'lar has always been a leader but tried to give the leadership over all away but was forced to take it. Somehow F'lar as been cast as the bad guy in some reader's minds because he tends to hold his cards close to his chest. If the poor guy shared most of his thoughts of his imagined future for Pern he would have a revolution on his hands. There were some amazing discoveries made when Jaxom and Felessan were sneaking around the old caverns. Many instruments that the ancients had stored away got everyone excited. I love the Master Craftmen and was happy to see them beginning to share knowledge. Pern under F'lar is slowly becoming more open. These new happenings were tempered by sadness and heart ache that could have been avoided if some egos were not over inflated. I think some of the parties involved needed to die but that just my opinion. A white dragon was hatched from Ramoth's last clutch which was an unprecedented first in the histories. Changes are coming to Pern but will the people accept them?
"Another Turn, and the deadly silver Threads began falling again. So the bold dragonriders took to the air once more, and their magnificent flying dragons swirled and swooped, belching flames that destroyed the shimmering strands before they reach the ground.
"But F'lar knew he had to find a better way to protect his beloved Pern, and he had to find it before the rebellious Oldtimers could breed anymore dissent....before his brother F'nor would be foolhardy enough to launch another suicide mission...and before those dratted fire-lizards could stir up any more trouble!"
Re-read 2018 continues. :)
