    Mags was a Trainee in the Heraldic Collegium in Haven, Valdemar’s capital city. Though his background of poverty and abuse at Cole Pieters’ gem mine set him apart from most other trainees, nonetheless he had found his own group of friends. Bear, Lena, and Amily were all students whose situations in life set them apart from more usual Trainees. The four of them had found mutual support in their shared misfortunes, and together struggled to help one another find solutions to their individual problems.

    Story

    Changes which is the last book in the Colegium Chronicles Trilogy, was a good read. Lackey definitely brought that special Valdemar touch into this story as well, although it is not as good as some of her previous Valdemar works such as the Last Herald mage or Mage Storms trilogies. The author stil leaves a few unanswered questions at the conclusion of this trilogy, but the plot line is good, and we begin to watch Mags complete the transformation from Mine slave orphan to Heraldic trainee and a future herald of Valdemar. Nick podehl does a truly excellent job as the narrator. His portrayal of the characters, and the ease with which he manages the various idioms of language, makes the book all the more entertaining. If you're a Valdemar fan, you should certainly get this. It is well wirth the credit.

    Story

    I absolotely love this book. It's one of my favourites and it's also a great intro to Pern. This was the first Anne Mccaffrey book I ever read and I've been hooked ever since.

    For the first time in more than three years, best-selling authors Anne McCaffrey and Todd McCaffrey have teamed up again to do what they do best: add another chapter to the Dragonriders of Pern. Even though Lorana cured the plague that was killing the dragons of Pern, sacrificing her queen dragon in the process, the effects of the disease were so devastating that there are no longer enough dragons available to fight the fall of deadly Thread. And as the situation grows more dire, a pregnant Lorana decides that she must take drastic steps in the quest for help.

    Story

    I'm sorry, but this story doesn't seem to do Pern or the dragonriders any justice. As has already been stated in some of the other reviews, most of the dragonrider rules regarding time travel have been broken. The book just goes on and on with nothing really noteworthy happening. It was a struggle to get through it. I only finished it because I love Anne Mccaffrey's pern books so much. Tod's earlier pern books were not bad, but this one is just boring.
