Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date

18 hours 23 minutes
For generations, the dragonriders had dedicated their lives to fighting Thread, the dreaded spores that periodically rained from the sky to ravage the land. On the backs of their magnificent telepathic dragons they flew to flame the deadly stuff out of the air before it could reach the planet’s surface. But the greatest dream of the dragonriders was to find a way to eradicate Thread completely, so that never again would their beloved Pern be threatened with destruction.

Now, for the first time, it looks as if that dream can come true. For when the people of Pern, led by Masterharper Robinton and F’lar and Lessa, Weyr-leader and Weyrwoman of Benden Weyr, excavate the ancient remains of the planet’s original settlement, they uncover the colonists’ voice-activated artificial intelligence system—which still functions. And the computer has incredible news for them: There is a chance—a good chance—that they can, at long last, annihilate Thread once and for all.

“When McCaffrey’s beloved dragons roar and their riders soar upon the beasts’ mighty backs…fans of Pern will likely be enthralled.” —Publishers Weekly

I love this book. Original, imaginative, and I just love the writing style.

The tale is wonderful and engaging, just as it was the first time I read it in print as a teenager. the narrator, while having a good voice for the descriptive texts, unfortunately seems to only be able to do a John Wayne impersonation or a very rural-sounding accent for the "manly men" voices he chose to give some characters. I was not a fan of the performance.

I love this book. I have been a real fan of the " Dragonriders of Pern " series. this story has a lot of technological jargon that slows down the story however, it is a good strong read with sad elements (I will not say what was sad). The narrator Mel Foster, has a good voice but the characters voices were not consistent and pretty much sounded was the same. That being said, I would listen to book over and over again.

Do you like fantasy? This has elements of that in the fire breathing, teleporting dragons. Do you like Sci-Fi? There is an AI unit that wants to aid in ridding this world of thread. This story more than ever will have you appreciating the people of this world. Anne McCaffrey is one of a kind in the best of ways.
