Dragon's Time

Anne McCaffrey and Todd McCaffrey. Del Rey, $26 (352p) ISBN 978-0-345-50089-2
Mother and son team up again (after 2008's Dragon Harper) to extend Anne McCaffrey's long-running Dragonriders of Pern series. Smooth, clear writing allows the well-realized characters to resonate with the world of Pern, where heroic dragonriders telepathically bonded to their mounts fight against the voracious, all-devouring alien spores known as Thread. A shortage of dragons puts the planet at risk and golden dragon riders Fiona and Lorana, both of whom have no problem defending the planet while pregnant, decide that time travel may be the only way to get the resources they need. The concept of time travel via going "between" on giant flying dragons has always proved crucial to the survival of Pern's colonists, but in this book it becomes almost a character in its own right. With numerous characters from earlier works, this book will appeal most to longtime fans of Pern and its dragons. (July)
