Possibly my favourite so far.
I am rereading the entire series in chronological order and it is very refreshing to get back to the original books after Todd's attempts.
Really liked the F'Lar & Lessa story in Dragonflight, but enjoyed the bigger role of F'Nor in this book & F'Lar stepping up again when needed. ( )

First line:
~How to begin? Mused Robinson, the Master Harper of Pern. He frowned thoughtfully down at the smooth, moist sand in the shallow trays of his work desk~

This is either my third or fourth time reading this book and itā€™s just as good this time around as it ever was. I love and McCaffreys writing, I love the world of PernšŸ™‚ ( )

Buddy read with Vivian.
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? ( )
