Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Dragon's Kin, bestselling author Anne McCaffrey did the unthinkable: for the first time ever, she invited another writer to join her in the skies of her most famous fictional creation. That writer was her son, Todd McCaffrey. Together, they penned a triumphant new chapter in the annals of the extraordinarily popular Dragonriders of Pern. Now, for the first time, Todd McCaffrey flies alone. And Dragonsblood is proof that the future of Pern is in good hands. After all, dragons are in his blood...Never in the dramatic history of Pern has there been a more dire emergency than that which faces the young dragonrider Lorana. A mysterious fatal illness is striking dragons. The epidemic is spreading like wildfire . . . and the next deadly cycle of Threadfall is only days away. Somehow, Lorana must find a cure before the dragons - including her own beloved Arith - succumb to the sickness, leaving Pern undefended.The lyrics of an all-but-forgotten song seem to point toward an answer, an answer from nearly five hundred years in the past, when Kitti Ping and her daughter Wind Blossom bred the first dragons from their smaller cousins, the fire-lizards. No doubt the first Pern colonists possessed the advanced technology to find the cure Lorana seeks, but over the centuries, that knowledge has been lost.Or has it?For in the distant past, an aged Wind Blossom worries that the germs that affect the fire-lizards may one day turn against larger prey - and unleash a plague that will destroy the dragons, Pern's only defenders against Thread. But as her people struggle to survive, Wind Blossom has neither the time nor the resources to expend on a future that may never arrive - until suddenly she uncovers evidence that her worst fears will come true.Now two brave women, separated by hundreds of years but joined by bonds transcending time, will become unknowing allies in a desperate race against sickness and Threadfall, with nothing less than the survival of all life on Pern at stake.The torch has been passed and burns more brightly than ever in this latest chapter of the venerable Pern saga, the first of what one hopes will be many solo efforts by the son of series creator Anne McCaffrey. - Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Synopsis:

The dragons of Pern are dying and the only person who can save them has been dead for over 400 Turns. Hope for the grieving dragonriders lies in the lyrics of a heartrending ballad lyrics that hint of a long-forgotten knowledge and age-old rooms hidden somewhere in Benden Weyr. Only one thing seems crystal clear: that to save the dragons, one young woman must make the ultimate sacrifice. Unabridged. 7 CDs.

Synopsis:

Something terrible is happening to the dragons of Pern - and the only person who can save them has been dead for over four hundred Turns. The dragonriders of the Third Pass have only the lyrics of a disquieting song and strange hints of marvelous rooms hidden in Benden Weyr to aid them. And the lyrics point to one thing - that to save the dragons of Pern, one young woman must sacrifice everything, including those she loves.
