Don't miss the other books in the Harper Hall Trilogy.

"The transformation of Menolly from a terrified outcast to a woman secure within herself is skillfully handled, making her a sympathetic character with whom many readers will identify." (School Library Journal)
"A superbly crafted fantasy in the heroic tradition....Unlike many sequels, this maintains the dramatic tensions of its predecessor." (Horn Book)
"Although set in another world, where dragons fly and people have fire lizards as pets, Menolly's innermost concerns are wholly contemporary." (Booklist)
Stuck at home pretty much immobile all day, so I devour books! I LOVE audiobooks because I can do several things while "reading" a good book
I love Menolly, the way the author wrote her character was fantastic. So real and easy to relate to. She does such a wonderful job putting together an interesting story. My sister and I started listening to the first book in the series on a long drive, and then we had to take it inside and finish the series, it was just that good! .
This series is the first I've time I've heard Sally Darling read. She's pretty good, just occasionally mispronunciates words. Does a good job though.
Need to read/hear the whole series - great for adults, suitable for children (no words that a parent would find objectionable. Strong female characters.
I like Sally Darling as a narrator she really brings the story to your ears. I like this book however i do miss hearing the inner thoughts of the Dragons. The Harper Hall series does a great job at looking at pern through the eyes of the harpers. I recommend it.
The second in a trilogy, it carries on the tale of Menolly and her troubles and triumphs in the Harper Hall. Very satisfying story.
I have read this book numerous times and have enjoyed it each and every time. Now listening to it I find even more depth to it. I enjoyed this book and will listen to it many times in the future just for the pure pleasure of it.
I've always loved the Harper Hall books and this is just a great way to enjoy the story all over again. I was thrilled with the person reading, I could almost believe this was what it would be like to have author reading to me. Not that I know how AM sounds but, it was very good to me!
Although, I found the publisher summary to be misleading, (as I have read the printed book several times), there is nothing missing out of this reading. Aside from a few word quandaries, this was was a good reading.
