The torch has been passed and burns more brightly than ever in this latest chapter of the venerable Pern saga, the first of what one hopes will be many solo efforts by the son of series creator Anne McCaffrey (Dragons of Pern). The narrative shifts smoothly between Wind Blossom, one of the original colonists of Pern, who's struggling to create a legacy for future generations before she dies, and Lorana, a young dragonrider born 450 years later with unusual talents for healing and telepathy. A genuinely spellbinding set of time travel puzzles and paradoxes is set against the moving backdrop of two populations struggling to survive: the children of the colonists, learning to live in a new world as they lose the technology of the old one, and the dragons of Lorana's time, who are dying of a mysterious plague just when they're needed to protect Pern. The strength of the two women and the mysterious connection between them is gradually revealed through a number of surprising and sometimes heartbreaking parallel occurrences. This stand-alone tale fits beautifully into the existing history and style of earlier books while still breaking new ground. Despite being geared toward the existing fan base, it will be quite accessible to new readers. In her introduction, the elder McCaffrey writes, "son, you done did good and me proud!" Even the most nepotism-wary will concur and eagerly look forward to the next installment. Agent, Donald Maass. (Jan. 25) FYI: McCaffrey co-wrote the previous Pern novel, Dragon's Kin (2003), with his mother. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

The first solo novel by the heir apparent to the world of Pern Anne McCaffrey's son and the 19th volume in "Dragonriders of Pern." Simultaneous with Del Rey hardcover. Exclusive U.S. rights. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

'A proper Pern novel...bodes well for future volumes' * SFX *
Dragonsblood is a good yarn, fitting perfectly into the Pern series, yet something I don't think I would have thought up myself. Enjoy, as I did, another point of view about Pern * Anne McCaffrey (from her introduction to Dragonsblood) *
