You won’t find me giving any of the books from the Dragon Riders of Pern series anything other than an 8, 9 or a 10. This is my favorite series.

This book jumps back several thousand years in the history of the planet PERN and describes the first 10 years of its colonization. This is a period of time when there is no such thing as a “dragon” on PERN or any other planet. The colonists of this planet look forward to setting up a peaceful agronomical society. An escape from the years of war against the Nathy and from the poluted and corrupted mother earth and subsequent colonies on Mars, First Centauri and elsewhere.

It describes the first obstacles that faced a society that would soon splinter and begin a millenium of decline into an economy similar to those found during Earth’s middle ages.

This is a good pre-history to the main thrust of the PERN series. I highly recommend it to you – AFTER you have read the other PERN books.
