Dragon's fire
Review: (Required): 

If you read the 3 books in this arc (Dragon's Kin, Dragon's Fire, & Dragon's Blood) you will
find a lot of repetition and there are parts that just plain bore you. But I could see the point of
doing it this way because of the different views on life on Pern these three books give. With each
you get to see a different side to Pern all taking place at during the same time span sometimes
touching the same events that is where it gets repetitive and that gets old. This book was definately
not your typical "Dragonriders of Pern" style book in that It does not look to dragonriders as the
main characters. Although they are important characters, McCaffrey sheds light on other aspects of
Pernese life such as how firestone was mined, how people were judged and how they became holdless or
Shunned, as well as the friction between holders, whers and crafts.
