From the New York Times bestselling mother-and-son team of Anne McCaffrey and Todd McCaffrey comes the final installment in the riveting Pern saga that began with Todd’s solo novel Dragonsblood. Now, with all of Pern imperiled by the aftereffects of a plague that killed scores of dragons and left the planet helpless against the fall of deadly Thread, the only hope for the future lies in the past.There, on an unexplored island, a group of dragon-riders led by Xhinna, a brave young woman who rides the blue dragon Tazith, must battle lethal Mrreows and voracious tunnel snakes to build a safe home for themselves and the dragons, whose offspring will one day—if they survive—replenish Pern’s decimated dragon population. But as the first female rider of a blue dragon, and the first female Weyrleader in the history of Pern, Xhinna faces an uphill battle in winning the respect and loyalty of her peers…especially after an unforeseen tragedy leaves the struggling colony reeling from a shattering loss.Amid the grieving, one girl, Jirana, blessed—or cursed—with the ability to foresee potential futures, will help Xhinna find a way forward. The answer lies in time…or, rather, in timing it: the awesome ability of the dragons to travel through time itself. But that power comes with risks, and by venturing further into the past, Xhinna may be jeopardizing the very future she has sworn to save.

So sad that this was Anne McCaffrey's last book may she rest in peace.

OK I sword that I would not spend another dime on Todd's "vision " of Pern. However, I knew that this was the last item that Ms McCaffrey had a hand in so instead of getting the book from the Library as I did with Dragons Time. I downloaded it. It is too bad this was last book she was involved in. The problem is that Todd never believed in the dragons and their bonds with their riders. He treated the dragons like they were pets beloved one but still pets.The dragons rarely spoke. The dragons would've know when another was in trouble or if they died. Todd still believes that the would mate without the rider. That never happens in Anne's earlier novels. Twice snakes came up from below and killed the dragons in the shell. Ya think they might have changed their tactic. Also, let us fly up to yhe Dawn Sisters so that they can view the continents. There isn't any air it is a vacuum. So to get around this THEY HOLD THEIR BREATH! Omg holding your breath wouldn't work. I cannot believe that Anne McCaffrey one of the prolific scientist fiction writer of our time would let one slip by. I am sorry that this was last. I will go back and download her best stuff Dragonsflight, Dragons Dawn, Dragonquest, Moreta Dragonlady of Pern, White Dragon, Harper Hall Trilogy. What ever you do stay away from anything that Todd McCaffrey wrote. The narrator was not great either. Why can't they hire readers who can do different voices and accents. What a waste of money and time.

this was an odd one, not like the others and fairly dark but still enjoyed
