This book was my introduction to pern. Honestly, it didn't do that good of a job; I doubt I will ever be back. The story wasn't captivating, the characters[return]were poorly developed, the dragons were developed even less, and the whole thing couldn't decide what sort of atmosphere it wanted to settle on. I'm guessing[return]the author intended the dragons to be wonderful and loyal companions, but for me they held a near constant air of vaguely creepy mind-controlling symbiosis.[return]Needless...more

A well written engaging story. I loved it but there's nothing much else to say.
My first McCaffrey book - very enjoyable overall - I think the "time travel" aspect was a disappointment for me - doing time travel well is difficult. I ended book feeling that the time travel negated alot of what happened previously in the book - but the characters were good and the story kept me reading.
