Young Kindan has no expectations other than joining his father in the mines of Camp Natalon on Pern. Mining is fraught with danger, but fortunately the camp has a watch-wher, a creature distantly related to dragons and uniquely suited to specialized work in the dark, cold mineshafts.

Then disaster strikes, leaving Kindan orphaned and the camp without a watch-wher. Grieving, Kindan is taken in by the camp's new Harper and finds a measure of solace in a burgeoning musical talent . . . and in a new friendship with the mysterious Nuella. It is Nuella who assists Kindan when he is selected to hatch and train a new watch-wher, a job that forces him to give up his dream of becoming a Harper; and it is Nuella who helps him give new meaning to his life.

Meanwhile, long-simmering tensions are dividing the camp. As warring factions threaten to explode, Nuella and Kindan begin to discover hidden talents in the watch-wher - talents that could very well save an entire Hold and which show them that even a seemingly impossible dream is never completely out of reach ...

Review:

A new novel which continues the epic saga of the dragons of Pern by the celebrated SF writer and her son. This is the first new Pern book since The Skies of Pern in 2001, and depicts that amazing world of humans and great telepathic dragons. Kindan, a young man, helps his father in the coal mining settlement of Camp Natalon. The camp has a watchwher, a distant relation of dragons, and Kindan assists his father in looking after the creature. However, in one awful moment everything goes wrong and Kindan loses his family and the camp's new harper and discovers his own musical talent. He starts a friendship with a mysterious girl called Nuella. It is a story full of good things and always wonderfully inventive. A sure-fire new bestseller.
