Reviews

"SUPERB STORYTELLING AND ENGAGING CHARACTERS . . .McCaffrey's most popular series takes on a new dimension with the latest installment, as familiar characters feel the weight of their years, giving way to a new generation of humans and their dragon companions."
-Library Journal (starred review)

"The continuing evolution of this world is carefully handled and always fascinating. . . . Multifaceted as the eyes of their dragons, these novels offer romance, adventure, medieval pageantry, intrigue . . . [and] a satisfyingly complex society. In The Skies of Pern, McCaffrey serves up a buffet which can satisfy virtually anyone who steps up to its table."
