For the first time in more than three years, bestselling authors Anne McCaffrey and Todd McCaffrey, mother and son, have teamed up again to do what they do best: add a fresh chapter to the most beloved science fiction series of all time, the Dragonriders of Pern.

Even though Lorana cured the plague that was killing the dragons of Pern, sacrificing her queen dragon in the process, the effects of the disease were so devastating that there are no longer enough dragons available to fight the fall of deadly Thread. And as the situation grows more dire, a pregnant Lorana decides that she must take drastic steps in the quest for help.

Meanwhile, back at Telgar Weyr, Weyrwoman Fiona, herself pregnant, and the harper Kindan must somehow keep morale from fading altogether in the face of the steadily mounting losses of dragons and their riders. But time weighs heavily against them--until Lorana finds a way to use time itself in their favor.

It's a plan fraught with risk, however. For attempting time travel means tampering with the natural laws of the universe, which could drastically alter history--and destiny--forever. Or so it has always been thought. But Lorana discovers that if the laws of time can't be broken without consequences, it may still be possible to bend them. To ensure the future of Pern, she's willing to take the fateful chance--even if it demands another, even greater, sacrifice.

I think I have to go back and read Dragonflight, Dragonquest, and The White Dragon just to get the memory of this out of my brain.

Adventures during the Second Fall on Pern.

Not sure I'll be reading any more of this series. Todd Mccaffree is nowhere near the writer his mom was. I didn't really care for the characters at all.

Best one in a while, certainly the best one that Todd has written. I'm still not entirely on board with his focus on little kids in positions of responsibility or Fiona's big heart going a bit far in the free love territory (she brings every stray into her family in some way, whether as a lover or a sister). But the heart of the story was there, great characters fighting to survive and triumph against such harsh odds with love, creativity and humor.

Anne brings up the depth of character a bit in this sequel to Dragongirl, but the overuse of "timing it" to resolve plot snarls still gets tedious. And what's this obsession with everybody in one big bed, and I mean everybody?

Enjoyable addition to the Dragonriders of Pern series by Anne and Todd McCaffrey. It takes a bit to follow all of the time travelling, but well worth it!
