Dragonriders of Pern is a science fiction series written primarily by American-Irish author Anne McCaffrey, who initiated it in 1967. Beginning in 2003, her middle child Todd McCaffrey has written Pern novels, both solo and jointly with Anne. The series (as of July 2012) comprises 23 novels and several short stories. Most of the short fiction has been collected in two volumes or incorporated in one of the novels, so Dragonriders of Pern is sometimes identified with the 24 books.

The Wily young Piemur, his singing ended by a change of voice, was given a new assignment by the Master Harper. As they fed the fire lizards, the rest of the Hall began to stir: the drudges in the kitchen were roused to breakfast efforts by Silvina and Abuna; in the junior and senior dormitories, occasional shouts punctuated random noises; and shutters on the journeyman’s quarters were being opened to let in the fresh morning air.

Where is the Pern AU in which WWX's sleek black dragon, outcast among his kind for his colour and intelligence, ends up the one to entwine LWJ's great golden queen in a mating flight so intense it's sung about Weyrwide for generations to come (never where small children can hear)?". and apparently teenage McCaffrey-fan me felt like this was an excellent idea, and worth interrupting the other WIPs I'm currently working on to have a quick scribble at.

Bringing fresh wonders and dangers to light in the skies of Pern, Anne McCaffrey and her son, Todd, who demonstrated his writing talents in the bestselling novels Dragon’s Kin and Dragonsblood, return with their second collaboration: a thrilling adventure of discovery and fate.Pellar is an orphan taken in by Masterharper Zist. Though born mute, Pellar is a gifted tracker, and when Zist sets off to take over as harper for Natalon’s coal-mining camp, Pellar–along with his fire-lizard, Chitter–joins him on a secret mission of his own: to find out if reported thefts of coal are the work of the Shunned, criminals condemned to a life of wandering and hardship.Halla is one of the children of the Shunned. Though innocent of their parents’ crimes, these children have inherited their cruel punishment. Lack of food, shelter, and clothes is their lot; hope is unknown to them. And what future would they hope for? Without a hold to call their own, there will be no protection for them when the lethal Thread inevitably falls again. Life is even tougher for Halla. Her family gone, she must fend for herself. Yet despite the brutality of her surroundings, Halla is kind and gentle, devoted to those more helpless than she. As depraved as Halla is good, Tenim is in league with Tarik, a crooked miner from Camp Natalon, who helps him steal coal in exchange for a cut of the profit. But Tenim soon realizes there is a lot more to be made from firestone, the volatile mineral that enables the dragons of Pern to burn Thread out of the sky. Tenim doesn’t care what he has to do, or whom he has to kill, in order to corner the market.Cristov is Tarik’s son. Dishonored by his father’s greed and treachery, the boy must make amends somehow, even if it means risking his life by mining the volatile firestone, which detonates on contact with the slightest drop of moisture.When the last remaining firestone mine explodes in flames, a desperate race begins to find a new deposit of the deadly but essential mineral, for without it there can be no defense against Thread. But Tenim has a murderous plan to turn tragedy to his own advantage, and only Pellar, Halla, and Cristov can stop him–and ensure that there will be a future for all on the world of the Dragonriders.

It's a little too convenient that a dragonrider just "happens" to go all the way to southern continent in order to "steal" fruit... when everyone is supposed to have forgotten it existed and how would he have gotten the coordinates....
The story is an interesting exploration of human courage and its opposite(?) craven selfishness....
The writing does not have the felicity of when Anne was writing her own books, and she also managed to write many books in which the only real enemy was thread or disease, and perhaps a bullying child who usually learned better, while this book has theft, murder, prostitution, arson, and even terrorism....
Anne's books one could recommend to a child, as even the "mating flight" sex was described wholesomely. This book is just too grim to offer to a child....
I wanted more McCaffrey dragons.... The dragons are still nice "people" in the book... but I would have been better off re-reading an early Anne.

As I've mentioned in previous Pern reviews, I've been a fan of Anne McCaffrey's universe for over a decade, since finding the first book on my Dad's bookshelves. It's always been a fascinating blend of science fiction and fantasy, heavily leaning on characterization to keep each story unique. This one was...lacking.

Even accepting that it's designed as Pern for younger readers (which is still an odd concept when you consider how dragonriders live, but whatever), this book is over-written. I could easily lose 100 pages and there would still be a solid story. Pellar is a great character, but he's perfect--just mute. Halla has gone through some interesting development, as has Cristov. Kindan is a bit flat in this book, but don't worry, he'll be back!

Overall: this is a nice, quick read for fans of Pern. But, not much happens and you only learn a little more about the world. Less dragons=less fun.
I liked the story of this one a little better than others from its time era. Maybe it was because there was overall less tragedy in this tale (although there was some), or maybe it was because it touched on something "new" in the Pern series. Firestone was always a background element in the series, but its procurement (and the logistics of maintaining a supply) were never touched on.

A lot of Todd's literary contributions to Pern seem a LOT more thought out logisitically than Anne's were alone. It's noticeable in both the collaborative works as well as his singular works. Whether those logistics are accurate, I can't say. Sometimes, they're gone into a little too deeply or too much tied into the plot, and the characters just seem added around logistical calculations.

I still enjoyed all of Todd's contributions to Pern, and this collaberation was probably one of the best.
The first thing with the time knot books that Todd McCaffrey has written is that they are a tad confusing and difficult to get into. It is hard to tell how much of that is the time traveling concept and how much of that is the writing style of the author. That being said I do like the characters and I got very invested in them and their story. I also got the feeling that Todd was settling into his story and writing style a little better. These books only make sense if you read them all together so as a whole even though some books weren't my favorite I really liked the whole story line over all and will read it again.

I will read this book again and look forward to other Todd McCaffrey Pern books.

Todd McCaffrey, is playing in Anne McCaffrey's world of Pern. And whereas he is an interesting author, his style is more plodding than Anne's. That could be because of her developing the universe or his fear of being allowed to play freely with her universe. With Anne's death I was hoping that Todd, could write more convincingly in the world of Pern, but it just doesn't seems to be possible.Or maybe it is just easier to imitate the Pooh stories or even to bastardize Tolkien. But Pern, just doesn't seem work for the second generation of Mccaffrey family writers.
She is do amazing i love her entire dragon series. so glad to see her son continuing her work and in the same way. I can see some slight changes in the writing style but he does her proud
Reading these books now in t chronological order vice date published, has been wonderful. All the story and relationships building one by one. This story brings Anne McCaffrey's talent to the front lines on the war against thread. Enjoy!
We were at first unsure about Todd McCaffrey taking over from his mother but this book got a warm reception from both my and my husband. The story here centers around something you might never have thought about - that there are two ways for dragons to create flame - and the drama is caused by the refusal of some to change the "old ways" and the determination of others to find a better way to make flame and reduce dragon deaths.
