I like Pern and its habitants very much. I have the first 4 printed books in Dutch language.
I bought 2 month ago the rest of the books in English, beause I wanted to know how the story goes. It's including Dragonsblood of Tod McCaffrey.
I started to read the book in the reading order from the timeline of After Landing.
Now I'm at the start of Moreta, Dragonlady of Pern. So I've read 6 new books.
I'm glad that I've bought the English versions of the books (and far the best is Dragonsblood).
This review is about Deagons Blood.
The book has a good and logical interaction between about 50 and 500 years After Landing persons.
It's with divers (almost) new ideas: go back in time to recover from Tread injurys looks a lot like Lessa's travel in time. The book has a lot of action (I like that).
The rating is not a 5 because of the fact that dragons and riders are dying by hundreds (sometimes even by hundreds together). Death is mostly logical, but for the story that number of deaths is not necessary. It bring the story out of balance.
