The latest novel about Pern, Dragon’s Time (New York: Ballantine Books, 2011), by Anne and Todd McCaffrey was disappointing. The beginning, when Lorana has traveled to the future, was anticlimactic. Lorana’s and F’jian’s jumping back and forth in time was confusing and unnecessary. Taking the weyrlings and injured dragons and riders back in time to prepare for battling Thread is too reminiscent of Dragongirl.
The McCaffreys would have been well advised to combine the two novels and then cut out about half.
I would like to see a sequel about how Telgar Weyr deals with the return of all the dragons and riders.
