Harper Hall - Dragonsong The Cast. When men first settled on Rukbat’s third world and called it Pern, they had taken little notice of the stranger planet, swinging about its adopted primary in a wildly erratic elliptical orbit. For two generations, the colonists gave the bright red star little thought, until the path of the wanderer brought it close to its stepsister at perihelion.

Dragonsong is the first book in the Harper Hall trilogy and the first Dragonriders of Pern book that I've read.

After a accident renders Menolly unable to play music, she runs away from the oppressive Sea Hold and discovers the fire lizards and sets the course for an adventure that will bring her close to the dragons she sings about.

The beginning to an entrancing fantasy series that McCaffrey fans (as well as Tamora Pierce and Marion Zimmer Bradley lovers) won't want to miss.

I just want to say, I love Anne McCaffrey, and I have loved these books since I was a little girl. And I still like to re-read them. But this kindle edition is so rife with typographical errors and omitted words it literally drives me batty, and at moments, it's almost painful to read through because of it. This is one that I really think needs a better go through by an editor. It's a darn shame, really, because those errors didn't exist in the print versions I had, and they really do disrupt the flow of the story.

1/2 star for the Kindle version; 10 stars for the Book version!
I think Amazon must have used a first-Turn apprentice to copy the Kindle version from the Book because the Kindle version is full of misspellings, omitted words, and even omitted lines of text. It is difficult at best to make complete sense of the Kindle reading, without having the Book to use as a backup ... which almost negates the purpose of having a Kindle. I have found that this incomplete copying problem is consistent for the entire Pern series; I am most disappointed!
The Book is fantastic ... buy the Book!

The Harper Hall series is amazing! At first I was apprehensive, as it's not directly about the dragon riders you learn to know and love from the first books in the Pern series. I wasn't sure if it would pull me in the way the first books have. However, the writing is captivating and it fills in blanks left by previous books. Absolute must read for fans of the Pern world created by Anne McAffrey.

This book plays off what we already know and happens along side the same timelines as the first two books in the series : Dragonflight: The first novel in The Dragonriders of Pern and Dragonquest: Volume II of The Dragonriders of Pern and as well as The White Dragon: Volume III of The Dragonriders of Pern. Reading those makes this book much more enjoyable and unravels pieces of a puzzle laid out by Anne McAffrey.

This is the first book in the Harper Hall series. It introduces us to Menolly and her story. Wonderful book! I was completely hooked within minutes and found myself sneaking any time I could to continue with Menolly on her adventures.

I have been reading and rereading this book ever since I was lucky enough to find Anne McCaffrey's books. It is, I suppose what would now be called 'YA' but, like many such ( unless you insist on sex and violence) well worth reading. Set in the world of Pern, a society which has regressed into a feudal- based life partly because of the need to counter a repeating deadly menace from space ( deadly 'threads' not tentacular beings) the story centers on Menolly. She lives in a fishing community but is musically gifted. Denied the chance to develop her gift because she is a girl, she runs away only to find herself in deadly peril from a fall of thread. Pern has Dragons who work with chosen humans to combat thread. Menoll finds some miniature dragons in the cave she shelters in and in helping them finds a purpose and eventually her destiny. A feel good story which is part of a larger story line but can satisfactorily stand alone. Highly recommended for anyone of any age who loves music and wishes for friendly dragons.

Alert! This is not a completely separate book or series from The Draqonriders of Pern series. You should actually read at least the first 3 in the original series and then it doesn't matter as much in reading any out of order.

There's background information for Menolly there that explains a lot about her character here. This book is a deeper look at who and why she is the person described in the 3rd book, The White Dragon, but to start with this may be confusing.

That said, I loved this deeper look into Menolly, as one of the more interesting and important characters in the series. Here's the blurb from the book:
Menolly, youngest daughter of Masterfisher Yanus, Sea Holder of Half-Circle Seahold, is a gifted musician who is punished for using her musical talents after Petiron, the Harper who encouraged her talent, dies. Finding life at the fishing community unbearable because her father forbids her to express her musical talents, she runs away from home. Menolly takes refuge from falling Thread in a cave—and discovers hatching fire-lizards, the precursors to the great dragons which are Pern's primary defense against Thread. Isolated from civilization in her cave and forced to care for nine baby fire lizards that she Impressed, Menolly quickly learns to be resourceful and independent. Freed from the restrictive role forced upon her by her family, she indulges her passion for music.

Menolly is out foraging one day when she is caught in Threadfall. She is rescued by a dragonrider, T'gran, and his brown dragon, Branth, who take her to Benden Weyr. As she is adjusting to the liberal lifestyle of the Weyrfolk, she is discovered by Masterharper Robinton, the Masterharper of Pern, who has been searching frantically for Petiron's mystery apprentice. He discovers that she is the writer of two songs that Petiron (his father) sent him and offers her a place at the Harper Hall as his apprentice.
