I thought I had read all the Pern books, but I don’t remember this one. This is the same time period of “The Dragonriders of Pern” but told from the perspective of those outside of the Weyrs, the Lord Holders, those under the Lord Holders protection and those who fell between the cracks, the holdless and those who preferred to be on their own, such as the traders.

While the narrative goes in a straight line chronologically, the story jumps around from one place to another, from one persons view to another and there are big jumps in time. Despite the fact that I had already read “The Dragonriders of Pern” there were many new characters in this book mixing in with the old. We get further insight to characters we already know, looking at things from their viewpoint.

If you haven’t read the other Pern books, you might find this book confusing, however, you would only need to read the first 3 books to be able to follow along with the story line and not get confused.

One thing I didn’t like in this book was how one dimensional the villain was, she wasn’t really given any kind of personality, except for being a deranged spoiled brat of a Lord Holder.

About Belleza

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES. I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes. I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads.. I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet. And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
