It got to the point where halfway through the book it seemed like the only scenes we had were mccqffrey Fiona opened one eye and saw that the younger girl was eyeing her with a mixture of trepidation, assessment, and fear.


More bosom-heaver and less good science-fiction, and coupled with worn-out themes, and yet another ending-that-is-not, I struggle to recommend tosd to anyone who really loves Anne’s vision of Pern. Fiona is supposed to be a great weyrwoman, but really she sp That book was shit. Conversations seemed a bit stilted and clunky at times.

First Fall Anne McCaffrey. But leading weyrfolk who are distrustful of a young outsider will be only one of her challenges. More’s the pity for them. Get some plot pointers from your mother, Todd, or give up the series! I read this out of order. Oct 15, Joy rated it did not like it.
