"Superb storytelling and engaging characters. . .McCaffrey's most popular series takes on a new dimension with the latest installment, as familiar characters feel the weight of their years, giving way to a new generation of humans and their dragon companions." (Library Journal)
"Multifaceted as the eyes of their dragons, these novels offer romance, adventure, medieval pageantry, intrigue . . . [and] a satisfyingly complex society." (SciFi Weekly)
I enjoyed listening to this book again (have read it before), but the narration became irritating to me when the narrator tried to pitch his voice higher to read the women's voices- he just couldn't carry it off. It sounds better reading it all straight. Also, I noticed a few mispronunciations- earlier in the book, Menolly was pronounced with the emphasis on the second syllable, whereas later in the book, it was emphasized on the first. I have read it with the pronunciation on the first syllable (in MY head). I noticed it with one or two other names, also. It makes me wonder, do the readers find out from the authors how to pronouce certain names, or just wing it?
No. But much easier for me than to reread it again.
F'lessan: Who was born with it all and wanted just to be the best rider he could be and succeeded. Then he lost it all after the lion attack and had to rethink his life. True to his heritage he found a way through to a new life while also finding the love of his life.
When F'lessan realized his life as a dragonrider was over.
Anne McCafferey neatly folded up and ended the dragonrider saga of the last pass of the Red Star with this book. It was a brilliant and emotionally satisfying ending but also left the question of whether dragonriders may go to Earth some day...Just to DO it.
