Dragonsinger Synopsis

Dragonriders of Pern is an epic of the fantasy genre for a reason. Discover why this series is so beloved and lose yourself in Pern: a world of dragons and other worldly forces; a world of mighty powers and omnious threats, from New York Times and Sunday Times bestselling author Anne McCaffrey. If you like David Eddings, Brandon Sanderson and Douglas Adams, you will love this. 'Anne McCaffrey, one of the queens of science fiction, knows exactly how to give her public what it wants' - THE TIMES "Thank heavens for Anne McCaffrey"-- ***** Reader review "An EXCEPTIONAL work of fantasy, brilliantly written" -- ***** Reader review "Another fabulous book from Pern's history" -- ***** Reader review "A great story both as a stand-alone novel... and as part of the Dragonriders series" -- ***** Reader review ******************************************************************************* IN A GREAT HALL, A DESTINY UNRAVELS... When Menolly, daughter of Yanus Sea Holder, arrived at the Harper Craft Hall, she came in style, aboard a huge bronze dragon, followed by her nine fire lizards. The Masterharper of Pern, aware of her unique skills, had chosen her as his only girl apprentice. But the holdless girl had first to overcome many heartaches in this strange new life. Two things sustained her - her devoted lizards, a subject on which she was fitted to instruct her Masters - and the music... music of compelling beauty, music-making where at last she was accepted. The Dragonriders of Pern series continues in The White Dragon.
