I love the Dragons of Pern stories and I loved this story also. Was sorry to reach the end... Todd McCaffrey does as wonderful a job creating the story and taking you away to Pern as his mother does.. I can tell the difference in their storytelling/writing, but both are excellent. I look forward to more stories about Pern.

As a HUGE Pern fan this book was a let down. I LOVED the characters and even the writing wasn't bad. I think Todd is doing a pretty good job, especially with such large shoes to fill. However, the being said, I think that no matter how good a story STARTS it should really have some sort of a conclusion/ending/something - and this did not. I was very upset to find that there was no conclusion to ANY of the main storylines and am assuming that readers are expected to cough up an additional $20+ for the next book that will complete this storyline. I find it sad that Todd has already sold out and is letting fans of The McCaffrey's down.

    Could be Better

    I've read all of Anne McCaffrey's books. And the first one she did with her son, Todd. Unfortunately, this book, I felt, got wrapped up in a lot of very small details. But even that would have been fine.....if there had been an ending!!

    For Pern fanatics only...

    This series of 3 books has a good story behind it, but the telling is rather jerky, following people back and fourth between times, and connecting all the varied relationships that are included gets very confusing. The first book is the best of the three, the latter two retelling parts of it from other places or times. They were also published just as news of Anne McCaffery's passing happened, so am hopeful that the next books will slow down and spend more time telling the story again. I've faith that Todd can carry the torch, but caution is needed not to meet yourself going in these books.

    Dragonheart

    I had a hard time deciding whether to rate this a 3 or 4 star book. I really enjoyed it. As always, with the Pern books and writing style, the stories are great and I have a hard time putting the book down once I start reading them. This one was no exception. The only downside was I did not read the book before it, Dragonsblood, (somehow missed it) and so some things did not always make sense, like I was missing something. Other than that it was a great book and I enjoyed it very much...Pern take me away!
