Young Kindan has no expectations other than joining his father in the mines of Camp Natalon, a coal mining settlement struggling to turn a profit far from the great Holds where the presence of dragons and their riders means safety and civilization. Mining is fraught with danger. Fortunately, the camp has a watch-wher, a creature distantly related to dragons and uniquely suited to specialized work in the dark, cold mineshafts. Kindan's father is the watch-wher's handler, and his son sometimes helps him out. But even that important job promises no opportunity outside the mine. Then disaster strikes. In one terrible instant, Kindan loses his family and the camp loses its watch-wher. Fathers are replaced by sons in the mine--except for Kindan, who is taken in by the camp's new Harper. Grieving, Kindan finds a measure of solace in a burgeoning musical talent ... and in a new friendship with Nuella, a mysterious girl no one seems to know exists. It is Nuella who assists Kindan when he is selected to hatch and train a new watch-wher, a job that forces him to give up his dream of becoming a Harper; and it is Nuella who helps him give new meaning to his life. Meanwhile, sparked by the tragedy, long-simmering tensions are dividing the camp. Far below the surface, a group of resentful miners hides a deadly secret. As warring factions threaten to explode, Nuella and Kindan begin to discover unknown talents in the misunderstood watch-wher-talents that could very well save an entire Hold. During their time teaching the watch-wher, the two learn some things themselves: that even a seemingly impossible dream is never completely out of reach ... and that light can be found even in darkness.… (mer)

Anne McCaffrey is the quintessential writer of fantasy books pertaining to dragons. These books are always wonderful, well written, and perfectly characterized. All of her series are great but the ones that take place on Pern are the best of all. A thoroughly fun and engaging read. ( )

The son of a miner, Kindan has no expectations for any other life. He loves his lessons with the camp’s harper, but music isn’t part of a miner’s future. He also enjoys helping out with the camp’s watch-wher— a creature distantly related to dragons and uniquely suited to work in dark, cold spaces—but even that important job can’t promise a future above the ground. Then disaster strikes. In one terrible instant, Kindan loses his family and the camp loses its watch-wher. It will take a new friendship and a new responsibility to teach Kindan that even a seemingly impossible dream is never out of reach . . . and that light can be found in the deepest darkness. ( )

This is a book about Pern, not just about dragons. It takes place in an earlier time than the original series. It explores new cultural territory focussed on the Miners and the as-yet-unexplored dragon variant, the watchwhers. The by now familiar Harpers are featured as well, with cameos from Dragonriders and their dragons. The title is a neat bit of reference, alluding to both Kindan, the young protagonist, and to the watchwher (kin to dragons), Kist, bonded to him.

I particularly enjoyed the part played by Nuella, daughter of the head miner and contemporary of Kindan, as she brought her own unique perspective to aid in understanding watchwhers and their capabilities. Yes, this is a tale of youngsters growing up, of people learning more about the world that surrounds them, and an actual plot that I will let you discover for yourself.

I enjoyed this a lot. ( )

It was just okay. Not bad, not irritating, not fantastic. It seemed a much faster read than some of the others, and it was an original story...not one of her cheating re-told stories. However, it seemed a little stunted, the characters weren't as developed, almost as if they were in a hurry to churn one out. That, and there weren't enough dragons involved. ( )

I had been avoiding the collaborative efforts of Anne McCaffery & son Todd..... don't really even remember why. I did grow up reading of Pern's Dragons.... I suppose I though my fond memories would be tinkered with?
Quite enjoyable though & I'll continue with them. ( )

Kindan was so excited that he practically bounced as he ran up to the heights where Camp Natalon kept its drum, fire beacon, and watch.
