As the current phase of thread fall ends, the dragon riders of Pern must face a future that will not include fighting thread. F'lessan (F'lar and Lessa's only child) becomes a leader in the planet-wide search for a new occupation for the Weyrs and dragon riders. A small group of Pernese are actively fighting the technological changes introduced through the AVIS computer to their society.

    It has been two years since AIVAS (artificial intelligence voice address system) shut himself down, but many remain grateful for the knowledge, tools, and technology AIVAS provided them such as paper, print, and medical treatment.

    Not everyone is pleased with the changes AIVAS brought about for the Pernese society. The Abominators believe AIVAS is evil and society needs to return to the pre-AIVAS days. They believe in the use of force to enforce their beliefs. As Weyr, holder, and craft unite to battle the Abominators, F'Lessan, the son of Lessa and F'lar, seeks a way to make the dragonriders remain important to Pern long after the thread threat leaves.

    Three years have passed since a Pern book was published, but readers will know that THE SKIES OF PERN was worth the wait. Once again the mistress of science fiction, Anne McCaffrey has crafted a novel about a world that many genre fans love. The evolution of society serves as the underlying theme to a story line rich with tradition, strong characterizations, and a powerful plot that will excite fans into demanding the next novel come out much faster.
