When men first settled on Rukbat's third world and called it Pern, they had taken little notice of the strange planet swinging around its adopted primary in a wildly erratic orbit

When men first settled on Rukbat's third world and called it Pern, they had taken little notice of the strange planet swinging around its adopted primary in a wildly erratic orbit. For two generations, the colonists gave the bright Red Star little thought, until the path of the wanderer brought it close to its stepsister at perihelion.

There are dragons all over Anne McCaffrey's house

There are dragons all over Anne McCaffrey's house. Some she's bought, but many have been made for her by adoring fans and given to her as gifts. I don't make dragons, of course. But whenever circumstances allow, I do try to bring her American bacon, something she can't get easily in Ireland, and something which she has taught all her friends there to love, as well!

Moreta: Dragonlady of Pern. Pern was in mortal danger. The climax happened when Moreta and her borrowed dragon did not return from "between

Moreta: Dragonlady of Pern. For, if dragonriders did not rise to char Thread, the parasite would devour any and all organic life it encountered. The future of the planet rested in the hands of Moreta and the other dedicated, selfless Pern leaders. But of all their problems, the most difficult to overcome was time. The climax happened when Moreta and her borrowed dragon did not return from "between. And that did happen closer to the end of the book.

Only 6 left in stock (more on the way).

Moreta: Dragonlady of Pern. Rukbat, in the Sagittarian Sector, was a golden G-type star. Since the Red Star rose in the east, the people of Pern decided to establish a holding in the eastern mountains, provided a suitable cavesite could be found

Moreta: Dragonlady of Pern. It had five planets, two asteroid belts, and a stray planet that it had attracted and held in recent millennia. When men first settled on Rukbat's third world and called it Pern, they had taken little notice of the strange planet swinging around its adopted primary in a wildly erratic orbit. Since the Red Star rose in the east, the people of Pern decided to establish a holding in the eastern mountains, provided a suitable cavesite could be found. Only solid rock and metal, both of which were in distressingly short supply on Pern, were impervious to the burning score of Thread.

All seems well on Pern until a mysterious ailment strikes killing myriads of holders, craftsmen, and dragonriders. Pern is left in mortal danger with no one to rise to char the prarasitic Thread. The dragonriders of Pern are in danger from a mutated strain of influenza.

This is my second go-through for this installment in McCaffrey's Pern series. I read it many many years ago as a teenager. It is just as good, if not better, than it was back then. I never get tired of visiting and revisiting Pern. McCaffrey's writing style is addictive. If you've never read a Pern book before, the introduction to this story will fill you in on the pertinent backstory and details. It's my understanding that none of the books technically need to be read in any particular order, although this second time around I've been reading them in chronological order, which is quite fun. You'll get sucked into the character interactions and human drama and conflict pretty quickly. The bioengineered dragons and the enemy Thread that falls from the sky and devours everything organic that it touches only form the backdrop to the absorbing storytelling and human experience McCaffrey shares with us.

This book follows Fort Weyrwoman Moreta during the latter end of a Fall. As if fighting Thread wasn't difficult enough to deal with, a devastating plague sweeps through all the weyrs and forts, completely decimating pockets of habitations. Working alongside Pern's Masterhealer and Ruathan Hold's new leader Alessan, Moreta tirelessly balances her Thread-fighting duties with helping to inoculate those of Pern's inhabitants who the plague affects: namely the humans and their herd beasts. Time is against them and so Moreta must 'time' it (go back and forth in time, which is a capability of the bioengineered dragon she is telepathically linked to) before a second wave of the plague strikes again.

It's a simple enough story, but the characters are so fully realized and the emotions and love story so nicely detailed that at the ending of the book, you can't help but set your reading device down (my Kindle in this case) and sigh with the bittersweetness of life. Anne McCaffrey was a brilliant writer. It's too bad she didn't pass her masterly skills of writing to her son Todd, who has done a terribly clumsy, awkward, and embarrassing job of trying to imitate his inimitable mother. My warning to you: Only read a Pern book if it has ONLY Anne McCaffrey's name on it. Don't read anything blindly doting mother and son collaborated on and definitely don't waste your time on any of Todd's pathetic solo efforts at blundering around in his mother's intricate universe.

Have not had the chance to read this as it was one of multiple book purchases in one order. But I know taht I will love the story, as I have with all of the Dragonriders of PERN series.

Great book, but the mp3 version is defective, and since I am reviewing the product, that is why this gets 1 star. Unfortunately, it is past the time I can return (which is obviously my bad for not listening to it sooner), so I am stuck with it.

I have probably read over a thousand books in my life and I have never
had a reaction to a happening in a book as I had to this one. When I
realized what had happened I found my self sobbing as hard as I did when
I put my Great Dane down over 15 years ago. This book was one of her
first Pern books I believe as it was published in 1983. It was so well
written as far as emotions for the people and non-emotional/logical
thoughts of the dragons. I also have never written to an author but I
did try to send an e-mail to A. McCraffrey after I finished as I just
felt I had to tell her of my experience with this book. I hope she rec'd
it. If you want to start reading the Pern books this is a great one, of
course they are all very good. Her creations are the best, she thinks
of everything and why. Have a great ride!!

Although I have had the chance to tell her this personally, I must reiterate my fascination with her ability to slip real world issues into a tale without making the reader feel preached to. Although some issues become obsolete, they usually arise again just in another form and I find myself wanting to re-read Ms. MacCaffrey's work to remember how I felt in the past. This book tackles the subject of a virulent disease wiping out humanity and the struggle to stabilize and halt its devistating effects. There are so many issues at present that can take the place of that disease in our real world which makes this book re-readable anytime you feel a bit hopeless. By the end, I feel more hopeful for our future because there will always be a Moreta in real life, maybe not on a dragon rider but fighting hard for a cure.

I have been a fan of these books for over 20 years now. My addiction stared in junior high and has grown into the love that it is today. Her style along with the descriptions have emersed me in the dragonriding fantasy world of Pern. The characters are so vivid in my mind that they actually feel like friends or foes. She is by far my favorite author. I'm so glad that Todd has picked up and continued on with the story.

I always loved this one!!
But I also have the same dread of what I have to read close to the end!!
As it says "it's the beginnings of the day not the endings" that are to be remembered!!!!
I've been binging on Pern books for a while. I started with "Dragonflight," "Dragonquest" and "The White Dragon." Then I decided to read them all in chronological order according to the Pern timeline. That wasn't necessarily a good idea.

Following the fictional timeline, "Moreta" comes after a five-book arc where the Riders are trying to save the dragons from a plague. Then here come's Moreta! They've saved the dragons, but now humans and runnerbeasts are dying. One plague follows another ad nauseum (pun not intended, but appropriate.)

"Moreta" was published in 1983. The five books that precede it in Pern-time were written after 2000. Had I read them in order of publication, it would have been a different story. But, come on. ANOTHER Pern-wide plague? Seriously? That's where we're going to go?

If you're going to read all the books, do yourself a favor and skip around between "Moreta" and the five books that precede it in Pern time.
