Pellar is an orphan taken in by Masterharper Zist. Though born mute, Pellar is a gifted tracker, and when Zist sets off to take over as harper for Natalon's coal-mining camp, Pellar - along with his fire-lizard, Chitter - joins him on a secret mission of his own: to find out if reported thefts of coal are the work of the Shunned, criminals condemned to a life of wandering and hardship.

Would you ever listen to anything by Anne McCaffrey and Todd McCaffrey again?

I enjoyed the early Pern Books wholeheartedly and adored the characters and plot points. Those with Todd tend to fade from my memory.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Dick Hill?

I would not be swayed to by a book it saw his name, nor would I avoid it. He is adequate.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Hope it would get better..... Disappointment it did not.

Any additional comments?

After trying to read one of the mother son combinations and listening to another ... I think I'll stop trying to cover the new Pern material and return to the older books.
