mère and

Dragon Harper

Rebecca Kai Dotlich, Author, Jan Spivey Gilchrist, Illustrator . Del Rey $25.95 (320p) ISBN 978-0-345-48030-9

As a terrible plague sweeps Pern, a brave Harper apprentice emerges as a true hero in this satisfying third collaboration between McCaffrey mère and fils (after 2006’s Dragon’s Fire ). The danger this time is not the deadly Thread but a virulent disease, similar to our world’s 1918 influenza epidemic or the more recent outbreaks of SARS. Kindan, a young apprentice of the Harpers’ Guild who’s dedicated to music, education and healing, had hoped to become a dragonrider, but failed to bond with a dragon at the last hatching. Then his education and budding romance with a lord’s daughter are disrupted by the epidemic, which poses a particular threat to the dragons and dragonriders who will be needed to fight the approaching Thread. The McCaffreys depict the crisis vividly, with enough detail to make the tragedy all too real and with enough hope to keep fantasy fans happy. (Dec.)
