I return to this book every few years. The story is fantasy, but the situations are human. On a backdrop of dire danger to the people we watch the characters learn trust – well not all of them, leadership, and love. If you fall in love with this world, there are plenty more books to keep you engrossed.
Here’s the bio from Amazon.
Anne McCaffrey, the Hugo Award-winning author of the bestselling Dragonriders of Pern® novels, is one of science fiction’s most popular authors. With Elizabeth Ann Scarborough she co-authored Changelings and Maelstrom, Books One and Two of The Twins of Petaybee. McCaffrey lives in a house of her own design, Dragonhold-Underhill, in County Wicklow, Ireland.
If you enjoy fantasy that looks at the social norms and how people react under pressure, you’ll enjoy this book.
