Some fourteen hundred turns afer men first came to Pern rode Moreta, on her great golden dragon, Orlith.

It was towards the end of the Pass of the Red Star--a time when every living creature on Pern was threatened by Threadfall--when the courage and daring of dragons and their riders was all that kept the planet from extinction. And then, at the height of the battle against Thread, came a new and terrible evil.

Moreta, in one last superhuman endeavor, was to save her people, and become the greatest legend of dragonlore until the end of time.

I liked many of the characters in both Moreta --and its sequel, "Nerilka's Story-- but was made depressed by reading of humans dying from the flu and dragons...suiciding...when their riders died---during Pern's Sixth Pass. Thankfully, Nerilka's Story was the more hopeful of the two. Of course, by the time I got to the tragedies of the Third Pass--written years later-- I was ready to say...enough.

Recommended for sure to many teens and octogenerians and those between! I have read most of the entire series. McCaffrey starts using co-writers on some of the later novels. I will never forget the one about the dolphins.
