I just finished Dragonquest. It was very good, of course. The ending was kind of abrupt to me... for some reason. It didn't seem like there was much of a conclusion... or maybe there was, and she just didn't bring it out. I'm not criticizing her or anything... my thoughts are kind of disoriented right now. On to the White Dragon. I KNEW Jazom was going to become a dragonrider! I predicted it.

hmmm, notread them yet, but I will, just to see the goings on off Pern. True, there are alot of overlapping, but it makes it interesting. Instead of traditional, one hero, one story, mccaffrey is showing us the many events that occur at the same time to other people in her world. making them seem more realistic.

but the "harper's hall trilogy" overlaps some events from other books, right? so it's hard to point to a precise order in which to read the first books. and to be quite honest, the best books are the ones you're reading. the first three and the HHT. once you get later and later in the series, and F'lar just keeps getting older, till you get to a book where his SON is like 30! and their culture changes drastically, and so, it's still good, it just isn't that great anymore...

Sure. Has anyone read those books by Ernest Drake? Or any other dragon books for that matter. I think I have read all Mcaffery's books, though I sometimes have a foulty memory. I'll check the list.

Silones, have you read the two books that come before the White Dragon, Dragonflight and Dragonquest? Does anyone know how many books there are in the series because you can never be sure the books they list inside of the books. And do all of them focus on different characters? Because the first one focused on Lessa and F'lar, and the second, which I'm reading now, Dragonquest, focuses on F'nor and Brekke.

lol, sounds like you're a real enthusiast. I tend to use strategy and traps for my game, instead of pure force. Anyway, I dont think we should discuss cards on a site for books eh?

You'd be right there, I have two dragon decks (one has my platinum, imported BLUE EYES ULTIMATE DRAGON in it! The other has HORUS THE BLACK FLAME DRAGON! All the way to level 10! And my armed dragons, of course, to lvl 10 also. I have a winged beast deck too but I am ashamed to say it's been neglected.) Sorry, I'm woffling. my freind has red eyes chick, red eyes and red eyes darkness dragons. Ok, I'll stop there.

um... well saphron, that is an interesting question. um, the blue sword was written first, but chronilogically, the hero and the crown comes first. you can read either one first without destroying the other for yourself--it really doesn't matter. but, when looking up the books, it might help you to remember that it is ROBIN MCKINLEY who wrote those books, and not anne mccaffrey. what's this about a book with mirrim in it? i always thought that mirrim was a bit of a prude. quick to insult, not very tactful. it ought to be interesting if there is a book about her. but i'll be honest, ever since they got rid of thread, the books don't hold as much appeal to me. the last one i read--the skies of pern, i think, about lessa's son... ilch. it was good, but not great. almost a culture shock.

Which book do you read first... The hero and the crown, or the blue sword?
