My rating: 4 of 5 stars (9/10)
Lovely, all over again.

Oh dear, another horribly short review. This was a perfect read for a very hot summer’s day when I was much too sticky and hot and tired to focus on anything too complex. Menolly’s story was a joy all over again and it reminded me just how much I do love Pern.
Marcus may be all about dragons, but what I really want is a fire lizard to sit on my shoulder and curl its tail (not too tightly) around my neck, like in Robin Wood’s wonderful painting of Masterharper Robinton.
We had a bit of a discussion in the Goodreads comments if you’re interested.
