This is not your motherís or Toddís motherís Pern. Things have come a long ways since the Dragonflight launched a beloved sensation. The latest entrant in the series returns to the third pass. Kindrin, Lorana, and Fiona are back. Fiona is growing up, in ways you might not expect. In truth, parents should read this novel and decide if the relationships portrayed within are acceptable. The polyamorous love triangles that are at the core of this story may be found offensive by some readers or their parents.

From official release/information:

Product Description: Young Fiona, rider of the gold queen Talenth, has returned from the past, where she and a group of dragons and riders fled so that the wounded could heal from their previous battles with Thread and the younger dragons could safely grow to fighting age. Gone only three days, yet aged more than three years, Fiona is no longer a child but a woman prepared to fight against the Thread that threatens to destroy her world.

Fiona's life takes a pivotal turn when a shocking tragedy thrusts her into a position of authority. Now she finds herself leading weyrfolk who have a hard time trusting a senior Weyrwoman who is both young and an outsider.

But even greater challenges lie ahead: Thread is falling and there are too few dragons to stem the tide. Many have died from the recent plague, and even with the influx of newly mature dragons from the past, the depleted fighting force is no match for the intensifying Threadfall. Fiona knows that something must be done, and what she proposes is daring and next to impossible. But if her plan succeeds, it just might save them all.
