Amazon Review


The beautiful planet Pern seemed a paradise to its new colonists—until unimaginable terror turned it into hell. Suddenly deadly spores were falling like silver threads from the sky, devouring everything—and everyone—on their path. It began to look as if the colony, cut off from Earth and lacking the resources to combat the menace, was doomed.

Then some of the colonists noticed that the small, dragonlike lizards that inhabited their new world were joining the fight against Thread, breathing fire on it and teleporting to safety. If only, they thought, the dragonets were big enough for a human to ride and intelligent enough to work as a team with a rider…

And so they set their most talented geneticist to work to create the creatures Pern so desperately needed—Dragons!


This Book is about how the people came to Pern and how they survived things like Volcano’s and the discovery of “Thread”

It also showed the science on how they developed from Fire Lizards to Dragons to help fight the Threads..


Another good Anne McCaffrey Pern book.  If you ever read the first 3 you wondered how everything began on the planet of Pern… well, this book gives you the answers!!  I love them so much I think I will push on to one more Pern book before I try reading something new.
