Dragonsinger (The Harper Hall Trilogy #2) - Anne McCaffrey7.20

Menolly - Mistress of Fire Lizards, Apprentice of Harper Hall

Menolly arrived in triumph at the Harper Hall, aboard a bronze dragon. She had run away from home and lived in a cave, outrun the dread Threadfall, impressed nine fire lizards and written songs that pleased the Masterharper of Pern. But what was her future at the hall to be?

It seemed she was always late or her fire lizards underfoot, and why didn't any of the other girls like her? Now that there was nothing to keep her from her beloved music and fire lizards, could Menolly learn to live among others, realize her talent and find her rightful place in the future of Pern?

In this second breathtaking fantasy in Anne McCaffrey's Harper Hall Trilogy, Menolly develops her studies to become a Harper as well as her relationship with the nine fire lizards.

"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
