Summary

The second Dragonriders of Pern novel from New York Times best seller Anne McCaffrey.

The Weyrs are full again, with old and new riders taking to the skies to fight Thread once again. But all is not well across Pern - the Oldtimers are struggling to adapt to the changes their centuries-long absence has brought and F'Lar and Lessa must carefully balance their conservative ways against those of their allies in the Crafts and Halls.

As new technology makes the Red Star appear closer than ever, F'Lar's brother F'Nor starts to look for ways to rid Pern of Thread once and for all...but at what risk?

DRAGON OF PERN

Enjoyed the story couldn't put it down . I read the series years ago and loved them hut due to failing eyesight I was unable to read them again but thanks to audio books I'm able to enjoy the books again. The narrator reads the story well voicing the parts making it interesting

Brilliant book, wonderfully read

The Pern novels have been constant companions of mine most of my life. Not having much time to read at the moment the audiobook was a brilliant way to cast back to the start. Sophie Aldred's reading is perfect, giving the characters real life. A must listen
