    1. Before How to Tame a Dragon, and Game of Thrones and the Smaug from the Hobbit movies there was Anne McCaffrey and her Dragons of Pern series.An incredibly spun exotic and foreign world which starts with a planet threatened by a scorching contamination orbiting its solar system and a bond forged between man and the dragons inhabiting the planet which until now were seen only as wild, dangerous animals.I recently redownloaded the books I read as a child, and they still hold up beautifully. Timele [...]

    2. On Dragonwings: Dragonsdawn / Dragonseye / Moreta (Pern #9, 14, 7)McCaffrey, AnneDragonsdawn: The first settlers of pern, how it is that man has come to pern, the reason and meaning of many of the names of the places of pern. The expodition of travelers who are transported by giant space ships who become the dawn sisters, their trials of travel, relocation and decimation by the pern thread invasion and the ingenuity and strenght in develping the dragons and training them to fly the skyes and pro [...]

    3. As there are three books in this collection, I should give it three scores. Dragonsdawn & Dragonseye are both 4 star books, but Moreta is a 2, at best. There are some problems with all of the books, but Dragonsdawn & Dragonseye are generally enjoyable in spite of them, whereas Moreta is dragged down repeatedly by a love story that isn't that deep/necessary; it should have also been named Capiam: Masterhealer of Pern instead, as it'd be more appropriate. Probably the biggest problem with [...]

    4. Three novels in one: Dragonsdawn is Pern's Genesis and even though it is the beginning of things I don't recommend it to the new Pern reader. It's fun finding out how things began but better to read her classics first, in my opinion. Dragonsdawn is clearly written after the main oeuvre, and is a little thinly stretched and contrived at times. Dragonseye takes place 200 years after Dragonsdawn, at the end of the first Interval. No one believes that Thread will come back (shades of Dragonflight?) [...]

    5. This is actually three books in one: Dragonsdawn (c)1988, Dragonseye (c)1997, and Moreta (c)1983. 873 pp.When I was 11 or so, Dad Walter introduced me to The Hobbit and it was there my fantasy/sci-fi binge began. Once through The Lord of the Rings, my very next stop was the Dragons of Pern. For some reason, I stuck to the original three or four and instead of branching out in the series, read those same three or four over and over and over again (I do that repetitive thing a lot - it's one of th [...]

    6. I have loved Anne McCaffrey's Pern series since I was a little girl and my mom read me the Menolly trilogy.That being said, two of my favorite books have een Dragonsdawn and Dragonseye because they give you such a good background on Pern.Want to know how the first Dragonriders were formed? Want to know how they learned to fight Thread? Look no further than Dragons Dawn. I found Sorka and Sean to be very interesting characters who were great to follow.

    7. I especially liked Dragonsdawn about the first settlers landing on Pern and how the dragons were developed. All three were great and really developed the world of Pern. I have almost all the Dragons of Pern books. I have to use a spreadsheet to keep track of which ones I don't have yet. I like to buy the larger multiple book sets so I can read them back to back.

    8. This is a great set of three books - Dragonsdawn, Dragonseye, and Moreta. I remember reading Dragonsdawn and thinking, OH MY GOD! My detailed reviews will be for each of the books. This is definitely worth collecting.

    9. I've always enjoyed the dragons of Pern. These three book seemed only connected to each other by that planet. I enjoyed all three but they were so separate. My favorite was dragon's dawne I hadn't read anything about humans arrival on Pern. I also loved Sean, & sorcha

    10. I was unable to be on site the day Anne McCaffrey visited the office at Random House and I was so bummed. This is an author I grew up reading. However, my team asked her to sign a copy for me!

    11. This was a really good book ( even though it was really long) and there were some pretty intense moments in the book. If you have alot of time and like science fiction then read this.

    12. Anne McCaffrey has written an absolutely wonderful fantasy series. Her Pern novels are beautifully written and very enjoyable individually or as a whole.
