In this triumphant return to Pern, Anne McCaffrey takes us on an adventure as surprising and unforgettable as any that has come before . . . It is a time of hope and regret, of endings and beginnings. The Red Star, that celestial curse whose eccentric orbit was responsible for Thread, has been shifted to a harmless orbit, and the current Threadfall will be the last. Technological marvels are changing the face of life on Pern. And the dragonriders, led by F'lessan, son of F'lar and Lessa and rider of bronze Golanth, and Tia, rider of green Zaranth, must forge a new place for themselves in a world that may no longer need them. But change is not easy for everyone. There are those who will stop at nothing--not even violence--to keep Pern and its people pure. And now a brand-new danger looms from the skies . . . and threatens a catastrophe of unimaginable proportions. Once again, the world looks to the dragons and their riders to solve the crisis and save the world. But now, as the friendship of F'lessan and Tia begins to bloom into something more, unforeseen tragedy strikes: a tragedy destined to forever change the future--not just of the two young lovers, but of every human and dragon on Pern . . .… (més)

Now that Pern can look forward to a future without the threat of Threadfall, the people are free to leave their protective stone holds and spread across more of the planet, as well as improve their lives with the newly discovered ancient technology. Not everyone is happy, though. Some resist the change, and consider anything new to be an "abomination". And the dragonriders are uncertain: without Thread, what will their purpose be in Pernese society?
Then a new danger - again from the skies - looms. Once again, the people must pull together...And turn to the only ones who can solve the crisis: the dragonriders of Pern!

Anne McCaffrey is the quintessential writer of fantasy books pertaining to dragons. These books are always wonderful, well written, and perfectly characterized. All of her series are great but the ones that take place on Pern are the best of all. In some ways I feel like the earlier Pern novels are better but then there is this novel which is probably in my top three favorite books of Pern. ( )

I am _done_ w/ the ninth pass. The ninth pass books fall into three categories: the pseudo-mediaeval ones (Dragonflight, Dragonquest), the girl-power/justice will prevail ones (Dragonsong, Dragonsinger), and the improbable PERN renaissance ones like this and those immediately preceding it.

Looking back, it's pretty obvious that the first two harper hall books are the best of the lot. But McCaffery really dug in and kept up the momentum, the events, the catastrophes, the scheming, etc. until the very end. Had she lived to write more, she would have kept it going, I'm sure. Is this great literature? No, it's not. But it does become a sort of science-fiction light: not too original in its science, not terribly well-researched, but still somewhat thought-provoking in its utopianism. But the dragons, who are some of our favorite characters, don't mix well w/ the science, so suspension of disbelief is a constant effort. ( )

Definitely one of the lesser Dragonrider books, bedevilled by too many main characters all jostling for elbow space (and getting only paper-thin characterisation as a result), strawman villains, and the two halves of the plot sitting in uneasy relationship to each other. Having said that, there was some gravitas to be had from: A) the planet-wide emergency caused by the tsunami (this is lent extra weight by the fallout of the major tsunamis of the last five years in our own world), and B) by a terrible event befalling on a main character, which has genuine repercussions that aren't completely glossed over.
