Nel primo volume della trilogia avevamo lasciato Menolly nella Sede degli Arpisti e qui la ritroviamo nel secondo, che racconta i suoi primi giorni da apprendista.

Il suo futuro le appare fin da subito meno dorato di quanto immaginasse (come spessa accade quando si affronta la realtà). Non tutti, infatti, dimostrano l'apertura mentale di Robinton, il Maestro Arpista. Menolly dovrà dimostrare di avere talento e di non essere solo un capriccio di Robinton.

Per non parlare poi delle invidie che susciterà nelle altre ragazze, che sono allieve, ma non apprendiste. Nello specifico, i loro facoltosi genitori/parenti prossimi, magari Signori di una Fortezza, pagano la Sede degli Arpisti perché venga insegnato loro a suonare e cantare. Quindi non diventeranno mai Arpiste (mestiere d'altro canto ritenuto inadatto per una donna).

Ma Menolly tirerà dritto e si impegnerà per tornare a suonare come un tempo, non senza difficoltà e ripensamenti e non senza l'aiuto di Robinton e Sebell. Il cambiamento non è automatico: le vecchie consuetudini sono radicate nella mentalità delle persone, ma, come dice Robinton a proposito del Maestro Morshal, uno dei più ostili a Menolly: "L'antipatia di Morshal per le donne è il divertimento di questa Sede, Menolly. Dimostragli la cortesia dovuta al suo rango e alla sua età, e ignora i suoi pregiudizi".

Ancora una volta, con una semplice frase, Anne McCaffrey ci mostra il passato e il presente. I pregiudizi di Morshal non sono più così diffusi e radicati, soprattutto nell'ambiente "accademico" e tra i giovani allievi, che mostrano più curiosità che non freddezza nei confronti di Menolly. L'ostilità viene principalmente da chi era abituato ai privilegi che derivavano dalla vecchia tradizione - e Anne McCaffrey non esita a mostrarci tutta la loro grettezza e ignoranza. ( )

Menolly needs more than music's power to make it as a Harper in the second book in the Harper Hall trilogy, set within science fiction legend Anne McCaffrey's beloved and bestselling Dragonriders of Pern series. In the world of Pern, Harpers are more powerful than kings, for the music they play can control the minds of others. For young Menolly, her dreams of becoming a Harper have nothing to do with power, but rather her love of music. Now she is finally living out her musical dreams as an apprentice Harper, but it's turning out to be more challenging than she thought. Formerly forbidden to study music because of her gender, Menolly quickly encounters hostility from a number of her male peers and masters. With the help of new friends, teachers, and her nine tiny, colorful dragons, Menolly finds that her musical talents may be stronger than anyone could imagine. ( )

I wonder if JK Rowling read Dragonsinger before she wrote the Harry potter series. Dragonsinger reminds me of Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone. The protagonists are each regarded as inadequate by their families, in Harry’s case an Aunt and Uncle in Menolly’s by her biological parents. Harry however when he reaches Hogwarts finds that he has a special talent for Quidditch and is infamous as the child who survives an assassination attempt as a baby. Menolly not only has her song writing skill and musical ability she’s also the owner of nine fire lizards. Both are protected by the head of the school, Professor Dumbledore and Masterharper Robinton. Both by they’re very existence rub certain teachers and students the wrong way and both are the objects of both envy and prejudice.

For the reasons stated above I’d recommend the Harper Hall series to fans of Harry Potter who may never have heard of the series I’m sure they will find a lot to like.

Closely following Dragonsong, when this book opens Menolly has just left the sea hold she grew up in, and landed in the Harper Hall. I had forgotten the entire story takes place over just seven days- seven days in which a lot happens. Menolly is tested by the various teachers on her knowledge and skill- in singing, playing a variety of instruments, musical theory and even making the instruments from raw materials. She faces some instant resentment and prejudice from peers- girls sneering at her manners, boys jealous of her fire lizards, even one instructor who disapproves of girls being serious music students (in this world). But she also quickly finds friends, and admirers. She can’t quite believe it at first, not only being allowed, but encouraged to make music (having been punished for that where she grew up) and rather falls all over herself apologizing for everything. Then there’s her slow-healing injuries- her feet are still very sore, and her nearly crippled hand hinders her performance at first. But Menolly literally finds her stride in this book, adroitly showing her natural talent and abilities to those around her, standing up for herself to some nasty girls who gossip and try to ruin her reputation, even learning more about what her fire lizards can do, and coaching the Masterharper and one of his senior journeymen through the impression of their own fire lizards. This one didn’t fade at all on a re-read.

I do know I checked this out from the library. I do know I started it. Did I finish it? Not sure. I know I didn't really care for it but I think it was because I plunged myself right into the Pern books without starting from the beginning. ( )
