Recensioner

Sky Dragons by Anne & Todd McCaffrey is the 24th book in the Dragonriders of Pern series and was the last book in the series to be published after Anne McCaffrey died in November 2011.

This unfortunately was not one of the better books in the series. I think all the "timing" it that has happened in the last few books that were published has made even the authors' brains a bit addled. All of the back and forth, back and forth is becoming utterly confusing.

I still love the characters that Todd McCaffrey has created. Some of them really stretch themselves and grow during this book. We see them overcome some formidable obstacles, including dissension amongst themselves. In the end, they come up with a solution to help the planet which is still in peril from the dreaded dragon sickness. It remains to be seen whether or not this solution will actually be the solution needed, but it's a start. We may never know if what they tried worked or not since there hasn't been another Pern book published since Ms. McCaffrey died.

In the end, I would still recommend this book to Pern-lovers because I think it does advance the storyline, but it is certainly not one of the best books in this series.

4.5 stars rounded up.

Dragonheart by Todd McCaffrey is the 21st book in the Dragonriders of Pern series.

I've been a fan of the series since I discovered them in the late 1990's. I must admit that I was a bit leary when I heard that her son, Todd, was starting to take over the series. I wasn't a huge fan of the first couple of books that came out under his name, but this one I really love. Fiona and T'mar have become two of my all-time favorite Pern characters and this book really showcases their characters and their development.

In this book, we see Fiona go from a Lord Holder's daughter to a Weyrwoman. We see her develop through her early teen years trying to adjust not only to the changes in her own body and feelings but also the changes in her life brought on by impressing a dragon. T'mar is an older bronze rider whose path crosses with Fiona's many times after she first becomes a weyrwoman. Then, they both find themselves back in time at an abandoned weyr which allows their relationship to grow and develop in new ways.

I highly recommend this installment of Pern's story.

The best I can say about this is that I felt it was better than DragonGirl.
Probably just because it focused more on Lorana which meant less focus on the increasingly annoying Fiona.
