Harperhall concluded

Dragondrums (Pern: Harper Hall series)
by Anne McCaffrey

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Piemur became Menolly‘s best friend in Dragonsinger and here is his coming-of-age story. We pick up a few years after Menolly walked the tables and became a journeyman and follow Piemur to his destiny…

“Of all the young singers at the Harperhall of Pern, Piemur was the one chosen for the leading role at Lord Groghe’s Gather…and then his voice broke. Suddenly his whole future at Harperhall became uncertain. But Masterharper Robinton, Menolly and Sebell had other plans for Piemur.“

From the book blurb

Entertaining story of his misadventures, that eventually take a positive turn for him. Not quite as well plotted or as gripping as the two Harperhall novels Dragonsong / Dragonsinger with Menolly as main character. But nice enough. And it gives an enticing glimpse into the Southern Continent.

  1. I enjoy this book, but I agree that it doesn’t work as well for me as the prior two which feature just Menolly as a MC. Having this one split the POV character the way it does makes it seem to me in many ways to be part of the main series but not part of the Harper Hall sub-series. (I know, it IS, because it focuses on the Harpers. But the tone is quite different with the multiple POV.)
