This is another in the ever growing Pern series begun by Anne McCaffrey. This book is a continuation of Dragon's Kin, and tells the continuing story of Kindan, after he turned Kist over to Nuella and moved to the the Harper Hall, and for the next couple of years on Pern.
Anne's son, Todd, seems to have taken over this series, and I enjoy his work, but it has a totally different feel than his mother. Todd seems to write a less complex and in depth story. He tells one story, from the beginning to the end, instead of jumping from one character to another to tell several facets of the tale. Still good, and very enjoyable, but just not the same.
