I only wish she had wriited more by herself and not with her Son as those are not as appealing Read full review. There are a lot of political machinations that are only referenced – so much of what’s going on in the southern weyr is draondrums to me!

This mediocre book drags the whole Harper Hall trilogy down with it. When Piemur recovers, he discovers he has been taken out dragobdrums the drumheights for good, and Robinton is sending him and Sebell to attend Nabol Hold’s Gather disguised as herders.

She had two brothers: He is all set to start practicing the part of Lessa in a new song to be performed, when his voice cracks. Retrieved from ” http: The story of Menolly was good, layered and exciting.

We do get some updates on Menolly, but she’s older and established within the Hall hierarchy, and McCaffrey’s decided to explore other bits of the Pern landscape using Piemur instead.


Simon and Schuster- Juvenile Fiction – pages. I felt that more could have been done with the book and characters which left overall a little dissatified with the dragondeums. He was a scamp and a rascal and befriended her. But that’s a problem I have with this entire series: Each Pern novel can be read as a stand alone, but Dragondrums is the third book in the Harper Hall trilogy so if you want to read the books in the order, head over to Dragonsong book 1 and Dragonsinger book 2.

Another satisfying read, recommended for high school and YA. Thanks for telling us about the problem. This is at odds with dravondrums idea of a trilogy whose arc seemed to be the coming of age of a young girl. It is so heart-breaking when his voice transforms, I could really feel for him, especially with the weight of everyone else’s reaction, but thankfully – and quite frankly, in a typical Piemur fashion – he springs out of it and finds something else to do.

During the festivities at Benden Weyr, Piemur listens in on conversations about the holdless, before he falls asleep and is returned to the Harper Hall. Again, as in the first two books of this series, these are suitable for kids unlike the regular Pern series. Its entertaining reading about the situations he manages to get himself into and out of.

They were and still are my favorites. He has one of the most impressive voices at Harper Hall and, in the world of Pern, there are few things more important than the ability to sing and write songs.

I was disappointed in the unanswered questions this book left especially what are the fire lizards special role and why is everyone so obsessed with them. The only good thing I can find is the fact that, through the story of the central character, we are following some interesting developments like the further maturation of Menolly, beyond that could not find anything interesting. No one will miss your boyish treble more than I, lad, except possibly Domick, but here in the Harper Hall, some of us listen to other tunes and drum a different beat.


Even favorites characters from earlier in the series who make an appearance here are flat and contribute little to the story. Dragondrums included a lot of political stuff that I didn’t understand, and I assume that is explained in The White Dragon. It is such a wonderful story that I cried at the end because it made me so happy.

I wish there were a fourth book as I’m not quite ready to leave Piemur behind. Unknown to him, the steps to the drumheights have been greased by the apprentices, and Piemur falls and knocks himself out as he runs up them. Piemur has a beautiful Soprano voice as a young man, but his voice begins to crack as he begins to go through the change to becoming a man.

I think it was just that Ms McCaffrey changed the focus of the story from my beloved friend Menolly and moved over to a newer face with Piemur.

The opening chapters of this book are a little clumsy as McCaffrey tries to weave in the essential parts of the previous two books. I always thought that the first three of the adult Dragonrider series would have made a fine movie triology–could still happen. Piemur isn’t a bad sort, just a rather impetuous boy who gets in a lot of trouble. Suddenly, he can no longer sing, and has to be reassigned within the Harper Hall. This story would be fine as a stand alone story.
