“When McCaffrey's beloved dragons roar and their riders soar on the beasts' mighty backs . . . fans of Pern will likely be enthralled.”—Publishers Weekly

On the backs of their magnificent telepathic dragons they flew to flame the deadly stuff out of the air before it could reach the planet's surface. But the greatest dream of the dragonriders was to find a way to eradicate Thread completely, so that never again would their beloved Pern be threatened with destruction.

Now, for the first time, it looks as if that dream can come true. For when the people of Pern, led by Masterharper Robinton and F'lar and Lessa, Weyrleader and Weyrwoman of Bendon Weyr, excavate the ancient remains of the planet's original settlement, they uncover the colonists' voice-activated artificial intelligence system—which still functions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The end of Thread One of the best installments in this series. Kept me on the edge of my seat! Beyond the intricate character development common to McCaffrey's books, I loved the science incorporated into this book! Whether it is accurate or not I don't know, but I like how the people of Pern are rediscovering the lost disciplines of humanity. How they got rid of Thread still makes me smile!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from She the Best Yet again, Anne has not dissapointed me. In this, as in all her books, there is imagination, adventure, romance, and a rollercoaster ride of emotions that go through you whilst realding the novel. Thank You Anne, for you wonderful imagination. You give me hope and insipration in my own writings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best of the Series Well, I've read all the dragon series, and this by far is the best. All the pieces of the series fit together after reading this book. I don't want to wreck anything, but you have to read the previous books of the Dragon Riders first.
