Format: Mass Market Paperback
In this book, Dragonseye (aka Red Star Rising, the Second Chronicle of Pern), you meet up with familiar attitudes. Close to the second pass (about 250 years after the colonists landed) Chalkin, a Lord Holder of Brita Hold, is abusing his responsibility to his hold and refuses to prepare for Threadfall. The Weyrleaders and many other holders are trying to do what they can to overrun his authority. Unfortunately you need a unanimous vote to impeach a Lord Holder, and some don't believe the stories. Artist Iantine may offer a solution, but can they save Brita Hold in time?
This book answers some questions like:
Where did the firelizards go? And why don't the people still have them, since the colonists had them?
When did computers disappear and why?
Why didn't the people go and find AVIAS after the dust had settled?
How did the Star Stones get to be?
When and why did the teaching meathods go from teachers to harpers?
If you are looking for old and familiar characters, you will be disappointed. I would reccommend starting with a book that is later on in time, so you will get familiar faces and characters that you will see over and over again, not like the one time only characters in this book. The first book anyone should read is Dragonsflight.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
It has been two hundred years since the last Threadfall on Pern and there is no one alive who remembers the deadly silver thread and its first horrific onslaught - except for the dragonriders. For two centuries they have been faithfully practicing the manuevers that Sean O'Connell, the first Weryleader, had developed to most effectively fight Thread. Now the signs of Threadfall are appearing: violent winter storms & volcanic eruptions, as well as other, more subtle signs. But one stubborn Lord Holder, Chalkin of Bitra, refuses to believe the signs. He also refuses to let his people prepare for Threadfall or to let dragonriders patrol his holdings. The Lord Holders must band together and find a way to deal with Chalkin before it is too late...
But, of course, Chalkin is not the only person who is causing problems. Clisser, who is in charge of teaching, is forced to deal with Pern's slowly dying technology. Most of the computers are already dead and unrepairable. Students and parents are rebelling at learning "useless" information, such as wars fought on old Terran and other alien information. Clisser and his fellow teachers must make the tough decision as to curriculum changes - do they begin teaching at the beginning of Pern's history and focus on the here and now or do they continue to teach their students to try and see beyond their own planet? Artist Iantine is caught up in Chalkin's evil wake when he accepted Chalkin's patronage and agreed to paint portraits of his children and his wife. Little did Iantine realize that Chalkin would not be satisfied with any portrait that he made and that he would be forced to pay for food and lodging while staying in Chalkin's home.

Format: Hardcover
When the Dragonriders series was recommended to me, I decided to read the series in story order instead of copyright order (as the author prefers). The first two in that order, Dragonsdawn, and Chronicles Of Pern were good solid SF novels. Moreta (the next, before Dragonseye came out) was pure fantasy. I wasn't expecting the fantasy and almost stopped reading the series. Dragonseye is a perfect transition. The book covers the loss of the last surviving pieces of hi-tech and the beginnings of the society so well loved in the later books. So many wonderful elements of the society of Pern have their beginnings here: the teaching songs and the eye-rocks, to name only two. I used to wonder where all the colonists' technology went.
All in all, I found Dragonseye completed the series. If there are questions unanswered in the history of Pern, I can't think of them. After you've read the series as the author prefers, go back and read it as a history. You'll see how Dragonseye fits in

Well if you are stickly a Pern fan it would be a fine novel, and God knows this book is still much better then alot of the stuff getting published. Ms. McCaffey oversteps her bounds here I think, that is the main problem. Previously the books have delt with the later "pases" of the red star. This book was supposed to introduce us to the secound pass. I urge anyone thinking of starting a kinship with these books to reconsider and start at the begining. Then you will do better about understanding this serise of books.

This book was pretty good but there were a lot of noticeable (sp) typos in there. I think the story was pretty interesting and the characterization was really well done. Hope to see more on Pern from Ms. McCaffrey soon!

The story flows nicely. Sometimes I get a little confused regarding who is who, but on the whole I enjoy the tale. Many of the people in it live near me, some are friends of mine. You will recognize your own circle of friends here. I wish I had a dragon, even a fire lizard, of my own.

Several years ago a friend introduced me to Fantasy books. Anne Mccaffrey was 1 of the first writers I read, starting a long history of cruising book shops.MasterHarper is the latest in the Pern series, it is set a way back in the story which gets confusing but I thorougly enjoyed it.
