Colonists from Earth set out to protect their new home, Pern, from the deadly spores that fall from the sky and devour everything in their path. Fantasy fiction from one of my favorite authors.
Really good introduction to an entirely new world...made me want to read all the others that followed.
The start of the Pern series. What's not to love? Great book, fantastic series. One of my all time favorite authors!
My favorite Pern book, hands down. It focuses on different characters in the Landing party without getting jumbled, and weaves them together in unexpected ways. I love the antics of Sorka and Sean, and it is so much fun to watch them grow - seeing how they mature and how they don't. ;) This book will also tug at your heartstrings with the story of Sallah Telgar and others. All around an interesting, diverse read.
Read it now. :D
