Second book in the trilogy, Menolly has made it to the Harper Hall and is trying to find her place. The other young girls studying there aren't as talented and their jealousy makes for a lot of problems. She has to overcome the emotional damage that her family left her as well, beating her for her music. It gets a bit emotional as she's encouraged to sing, play and compose at the Hall. She also brings a lot of hard won knowledge about fire lizards. ( )

This story follows Book One, Dragonsong, without a blink. I hold a lot of nostalgia for these books. I used to take five to six hour trips every month to see my step-son. I used to imagine dragons flying among the mountain peeks as we traveled along the boring freeway.

Anne McCaffery died in November of last year. I’m saddened that there will be no new releases. As an adult, her work inspired me to daydream. A trait I was discourage from pursuing as a child, and thought I had outgrown. She and others like her are the reason why I can write today. I hope her work continues to bring dreams and joy to all generations to come.

As a sequel this could not be better. Picking up where Dragonsong left off it is a great book. I recommend every young person read this, preferably they should have this as part of their school work. A book that can teach much about understanding and of course about wonder. ( )

Makes me want to keep reading. I really like the world. ( )

I read this book in sixth grade and for years after, I remembered this story, like it haunted me. Years later I finally remembered and figured out what the book was, and rediscovered an incredible world. ( )

Book description

Menolly arrived in triumph at the Harper Hall, aboard a bronze dragon. She had run away from home and lived in a cave, outrun the dread threadfall, impressed nine fire lizards and written songs that pleased the Masterharper of Pern.
But what was her future at the hall to be?

It seemed she was always late or her fire lizards underfoot, and why didn't any of the other girls like her? Now that there was nothing to keep her from her beloved music and fire lizards, could Menolly learn to live among others, realize her talent and find her rightful place in the future of Pern?

My mighty craft is winged in white;
A dragon of night-dark sea.
Swiftborn, dreamhound and rudderless;
Her captain and crew are me.
I sail a hundred sleeping tides
Where no seaman's ever been
And only my white-winged craft and I
Know the marvels we have seen.
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Pursuing her dream to be a Harper of Pern, Menolly studies under the Masterharper learning that more is required than a facility with music and a clever way with words. Sequel to Dragonsong.
