    exciting and enthralling

    Although apprentice Harper Kindan is disappointed not to impress one of the eggs containing baby dragons on the hatching grounds of High Reaches Weyr, he knows there will be other chances. He returns to Harper Hall and finds himself protecting the Harper young women from the senior apprentice Vaxoram. After getting some special training, Kindan and Vaxoram duel with the former winning. According to the terms of the duel Vaxoram is Kindan¿s servant and under his guidance. Vaxoram becomes a better person, genuinely glad when his friend impresses a fire lizard and worried what will happen when it is discovered that Kindan is in love with a Lord Holder¿s daughter--------------- These worries are swept aside when a new danger threatens Pern. A super flu starts spreading from hold to hold and nobody knows how to cure it. The records show a plague like this hit once before and it took twenty turns to recover from the aftereffects. With thread coming in twelve turns, the weyrs have to quarantine themselves so they will have enough people and dragons to fight thread. It is up to the Holds and the information gathering of the Harpers to find a way to have the plague burn itself out before the population will not be able to produce goods and grow crops because there won¿t be enough people to do it. Kindan plays a big role in trying to stop the spread of the disease and caring for its victims.------------- Readers who have read any of the Pern books will find DRAGON HARPER just as exciting and enthralling as all the other books in the long running saga. . The collaboration between Anne McCaffrey and her son Todd McCaffrey creates the same voice as if mom wrote this alone. There is plenty of action in DRAGON HARPER but the heart of the books lies in the characters who come together during the crisis.--------------- Harriet Klausner

    This book ties some ends from earlier books. If you are reading the entire set it is helpful.

    A wonderful addition

    This is a wonderful addition to the pern series. This has many twists and turns, as well as many heart rendering points. If you want to know what they are you have to read!!!

    Long Live Pern!!!!!

    My older brother, Rick, got me to read 'The White Dragon' back in the 70's. I've been an avid fan ever since, I even got my mother hooked on them. I've not only bought all of the Pern books, I've read them at least a dozen times or more over the years and had to replace 4 of them, because they've been read so much. This book is another great Pern book! I look forward to replacing it in another year or two. Todd Mccaffrey has done a great job on the Pern books he has written, Anne Mccaffrey, it goes without saying {we're not worthy! we're not worthy!} is one of the best writer's ever. This book is worth the read. the third in a series, Dragon Kin, Dragon Fire, Dragon Harper are OUTSTANDING books.
