Publisher's Summary

When the first humans came to settle the planet Pern, they did not come alone: intelligence-enhanced dolphins also crossed the stars to colonize Pern's oceans while their human partners settled the vast continents. But then disaster struck. The deadly silver spores called Thread fell like rain from the sky, and as human colonists' dreams of a new, idyllic life shattered into a desperate struggle for survival, the dolphins were forgotten.Now, centuries later, as the dragonriders of Pern prepare to complete the momentus task of ridding their world of Thread forever, T'lion, a young bronze rider, and his friend Readis, son of the Lord Holder of Paradise River Hold, make contact with the legendary "shipfish." And as the dragonriders grapple with the end of an era, T'lion, Readis, and the dolphins face the start of a new one: reviving the bond between land- and ocean-dwellers - and resurrecting the dreams of the first colonists of Pern.

excellent but for major error

This is an excellent book, continuing the Pern series and linking in nicely with other later novels in the timeline. My biggest quibble however, and something to be very aware of is that it is not broken down into chapters on the file, it is just one long running book. This is maddening if you, like me. listen in the car or train and you need to continue where you left off.! If anyone does know how to break up the file into chunks which are searchable I would like to know!

Id would therefore highly recommend the book, just be aware of the foiballs!

Great book, terrible narrator

Love all the Pern stories, but the narrator is so bland - he speaks like a computer!
