Never had there been as close a bonding as the one that existed between the daring and adventurous young Lord Jaxom and his extraordinary white dragon, Ruth. Pure white and incredibly agile, Ruth was a dragon of many talents, though almost everyone on Pern thought he was a runt that would never amount to anything. But Jaxom knew better, knew he could teach his dragon to fly and to destroy the deadly silver Threads that fell from the sky. Disobeying all rules, Jaxom and Ruth trained in secret. Their illicit flights seemed but a minor disobedience - until they found themselves in the path of danger and in a position to prevent the biggest disaster of all.… (más)

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. This is another pne of the Pern novels it took me ages to finish but once I finally did it became one of my all time favorites. ( )

his is one of my favorite Pern books. It allows you to view Pern from three perspectives: Crafter, Holder, and Dragonrider. Having Lytol as a mentor, Jaxsom learns about life as he balances being a Rider with learning about Holding. ( )

This is where the series started to go downhill. The first two books were very enjoyable, but this one hovers between teen and adult fiction and isn't brilliant as either.

I dislike the sex scenes - I've nothing against sex, but some writers can write it well, and some can't. And there's a definite sense that woman definitely enjoy rough sex (which is fine, but I believe a man should ask about that beforehand and not be pleased to find it is okay afterwards).

About this point in the series that it really comes home to you that mating flights might as well be looked up on as rape if the queen rider doesn't like the rider of the successful bronze dragon.

Mirrim is portrayed as a rather annoying character, but no one ever wonders (or even sympathises with) what will happen when her green dragon rises....

The only character who feels really believable is Master Robinton. (I'm sure I read somewhere that he was based on a real person, and I can believe that.)

The more the characters discover about the ancients, the less believable the book becomes. They make wonderfully accurate guesses about things they know nothing about. eg. F'lar wonders how the tubes on the back of the landing craft help propel it, but given that the craft has wings, why doesn't he ask the more logical question (for a dragonrider): "How did they make the wings move?"

I'd forgotten that all these books are a dubcon fest, but this one has Ruth, so it's marginally the best. ( )

He's just an overgrown fire lizard!

He'll never be a real dragon!

The white dragon Ruth was never supposed to survive. Small for his size and stuck in his egg, Lord Jaxom saved his life. Now the young boy who isn't quite a Lord Holder, and the dragon who never should have lived have a life time bond. While Ruth pays no mind to the insults thrown his way, Jaxom is determined to prove his friend is just as good as the great bronzes.

The first half of this novel I have to admit dragged on. It mostly focused on Jaxom and Ruth exploring their capabilities as dragon and rider, which was entertaining, but there wasn't a huge amount of conflict. A few political spats from the Lord Holders and the familiar threat of thread, but aside from that not much happens until the exiled Southern Riders decide to meddle in the affairs of the North.

The Southern riders are old and dying. We've known this since book two. Exiled due to their greed and treatment of Pern, they have been a long overdue thorn that has decided to burrow in deeper. The hot headed and egotistical T'ron chooses to commit a heinous crime that nearly sets dragon upon dragon. This is the first conflict we see, where Jaxom and Ruth begin to prove themselves and is a turning point for the plot.

The Northern riders begin expansion into the Southern Continent, far away from the Southern Weyr so as to avoid further conflict and in search of a lost rider. Jaxom and Ruth soon stumble upon fire lizards who can give the riders clues to their mysterious ancestors and a curious ability only Ruth can use. As the Northerners begin to dig into the past that surrounds them, the bits and pieces they uncover start to unravel the mysteries surrounding the ancestors.
I do wish the two stories, that of Jaxom and Ruth's realization of their self worth and the expansion of the Southern Continent had been split into separate books. I don't feel like Jaxom and Ruth went through enough trials to become who they are by the end of the book. It was more like they overcame school yard bullying than anything else, which in itself should be rewarding, but it fell flat.

I am also not one to enjoy politics, even if they are fictional. The plot structure could have also used work, as it sometimes jumped to a person's POV that was summing up what happened in the previous novels and the current one. None of this summary was needed and interrupted the storyline.

I'm not willing to give up on Pern just yet. I do want to know more about the ancestors and if the current inhabitants of Pern can deconstruct and figure out all that has been left behind. I also know there are a few books that take place during the original trilogy and I would be interested to know what has been happening in the other Weyrs.
