The MasterHarper of Pern, Paperback Book
4 out of 5 (2 ratings)

Description

MasterSinger Merelan and Harper Petiron were a brilliant and devoted couple.

Merelan was the most outstanding soprano ever heard on Pern, and was often the only one who could master Petiron's technically accomplished compositions.

When, after a long and difficult birth, Robinton was born to them, it should have been the culmination of a unique partnership. But Petiron, almost from the first day, had no time for his son, refusing to see the incredible talent the boy possessed, ignoring his achievements and maintaining a strict and disapproving vigilance over him at all times. Carefully, secretly, the Harper Hall took over, training the greatest talent Pern had ever seen - a talent that was more than just musical, for Robinton was able to talk to the dragons of Pern. As constant sadness beset his personal life, so a startling career sent him like a meteor through the Holds and Weyrs of Pern until, as MasterHarper, he became part of the great plan to rescue Lessa from the brutal rule of Holder Fax - Lessa, who was to be the saviour of the dragons of Pern.

For me THE best Dragonrider's novel! Anne McCaffrey describes the life of Masterharper Robinton here, a fascinating character with a troublesome history, which made him the outstanding man he is (with some bad habits).

This book tries to explain everyone and everything that lead up to the original Dragonrider books. That some of it works is a testimony to Anne McCaffrey's great talent. But even she can't make the whole thing seem anything but contrived.
