I have been putting this book off long enough. To be honest I was afraid that loosing Mrs. McCaffrey would be an end to this series. That may still be true. I have been reading these novels for ~15 years and I never thought they would end. Solid book that keeps the reader engaged and interested. I can see where there is a LOT of room to continue this fine universe. ( )

This is the last Pern book. I am sad, knowing that. However, it opened up a whole new geography within the world of Pern, and a method to save the world during the Third Fall.

I was still a bit confused by some of the time traveling, and by the wealth of named characters. This time the main protagonist is one who had been featured in earlier books, Xhinna. I enjoyed the book, but in some ways, happy to see the conclusion of this story arc. It ended well. ( )

This was the last book that Anne McCaffrey wrote before she died. As her co-author and son Todd explains in the forward "After we had finished this book but before it was copyedited, my mother, Anne McCaffrey, passed away. She was eighty-five, she died "in the arms of a handsome man"(her son-in-law, Geoffrey), she died at home, quickly." That sounds like a great way to die; we should all hope for the same. I wonder if Anne felt that she had completed her life's work since this is the last book in the Pern Second Interval series that Anne and Todd wrote together. She must have felt that she had left her creation of Pern in good hands.

This book is the story, mainly, of Xhinna who made history by becoming the first woman to impress a blue dragon. She is forced into a leadership role when she takes an endangered group of people and dragons back three years in time to a site on the Western Isle where they will be safe from Fall and can rebuild dragon numbers so when Fall does come they have the forces to fight it. The first place they settle is a group of broom trees which provide continuous shelter; the Pernese can take shelter on the tops of the trees from the vicious felines that attacked them at the first spot they landed. There is another danger on the Western Isle though. Tunnel snakes can come up under eggs and kill the dragonets inside by making a hole in the shell. It takes a girl with extra-sensory perception and domesticated felines to save the eggs from the tunnel snakes. The girl can also see the future and so she knows some events before they happen although she cannot tell anyone. Xhinna figures out that she has seen Xhinna's death but she carries on with her duties.

I've missed reading some of the books in this series so I had a bit of trouble following some of the occurrences that were based upon things that happened in other books. I decided it wasn't necessary to know everything to enjoy this tale. ( )
