Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathleen Foucart
The third book in the "The Harper Hall Trilogy" follows Piemur as he discovers his place in the world of Pern. When Piemur's beautiful soprano voice begins to change to his adult tone, he is devastated. Singing was his only real talent at Harper Hall, and without that, he fears he could be sent home, yet the Masterharper has another assignment for the clever young Piemur—he is to learn drumbeats, the best way of communicating over the distances of Pern, especially for those who lack Fire Lizards. The other apprentices in the drum heights, however, do not take kindly to their new associate, and soon Piemur learns his more carefree days have led to a rather disastrous reputation when it comes to keeping secrets. Piemur is determined to fix his problems on his own, and he learns his lessons quickly, but when a quick decision leads to an adventure he never dreamed of, Piemur soon discovers where he belongs. Though followers of the first two books in the series might be slightly disappointed to find themselves with Piemur instead of Menolly, it soon proves an exciting tale. Reviewer: Kathleen Foucart
