"Pretty Good"

Purchased on Mighty Ape

This was another good story. I can see Todd is slowly getting the hang of writing. Hopefully he'll be able to write more in depth and really focus on character, but it is still a good book. Anne's world is in good hands. But I would like to see a story that isn't about disease.

"Excellent story"

We love the mcCaffrey books & really love the continuing story

"The saga of Pern continues in great form." Purchased on Mighty Ape

Todd McCaffrey is a worthy successor for his mother's crown as a Fantasy writer. His love for the imagined world of Pern and its people is clear in every line – I loved it.


Dragonheart (2008) is the 22nd book written in the Dragonriders of Pern series, and the 2nd with Todd McCaffrey as sole author. Chronologically it is set around the Third Pass, about 500 years after landing.

The specter of sickness looms over the Weyrs of Pern, felling fire-lizards and threatening their dragon cousins, Pern's sole defense against the deadly phenomenon that is Thread. Fiona, the young rider of queen dragon Talenth, is about to assume the duties of a Weyrwoman when word spreads that dragons have begun succumbing to the new contagion. As more dragons sicken and die, Weyrleader B'Nik and queen rider Lorana comb Fort Weyr's archives in a desperate search for clues from the past that may hold the solution to the plague. But could the past itself prove the pathway to salvation for Pern's imperiled dragons? Guided by a mysterious ally from a wholly unexpected place, and trusting in the dragon gift for transcending time, Fiona will join a risky expedition with far-reaching consequences for both Pern's future and her personal destiny.
