With the dragons of Pern dying and the only person who can save them long dead, the grieving dragon riders find clues in the lyrics of an ancient ballad to long forgotten knowledge and secrets hidden somewhere in Benden Weyr. In Dragon's Kin, best selling author Anne McCaffrey did the unthinkable: for the first time ever, she invited another writer to join her in the skies of her most famous fictional creation, that writer was her son, Todd McCaffrey. Together, they penned a triumphant new chapter in the annals of the extraordinarily popular Dragonriders of Pern. Now, for the first time, Todd McCaffrey flies alone, and Dragonsblood is proof that the future of Pern is in good hands. After all, dragons are in his blood. Never in the dramatic history of Pern has there been a direr emergency than that which faces the young dragon rider Lorana. A mysterious fatal illness is striking dragons. The epidemic is spreading like wildfire and the next deadly cycle of thread fall is only days away. Somehow, Lorana must find a cure before the dragons, including her own beloved Arit succumb to the sickness, leaving Pern undefended. The lyrics of an all but forgotten song seem to point toward an answer from nearly five hundred years in the past, when Kitti Ping and her daughter Wind Blossom bred the first dragons from their smaller cousins, the fire lizards. No doubt the first colonists possessed the advanced technology to find the cure for which Lorana seeks, but over the centuries, that knowledge has been lost. Or has it? For in the distant past, an aged Wind Blossom worries that the germs that affect the fire lizards may one day turn on larger prey and unleash a plague that will destroy the dragons, Pern's only defenders against thread. But as her people struggle to survive, Wind Blossom has neither the time nor the resources to expend on a future that may never arrive until suddenly she uncovers evidence that her worst fears will come true. Now two brave women, separated by hundreds of years but joined by bonds transcending time, will become unknowing allies in a desperate race against sickness and thread fall, with nothing less than the survival of all life on Pern at stake

"Now, with all of Pern imperiled by the aftereffects of a plague that killed scores of dragons and left the planet helpless against the fall of deadly Thread, the only hope for the future lies in the past. There, on an unexplored island, a group of dragon-riders led by Xhinna, a brave young woman who rides the blue dragon Tazith, must battle lethal Mrreows and voracious tunnel snakes to build a safe home for themselves and the dragons, whose offspring will one day-- if they survive-- replenish Pern's decimated dragon population. But as the first female rider of a blue dragon, and the first female Weyrleader in the history of Pern, Xhinna faces an uphill battle in winning the respect and loyalty of her peers . . . especially after an unforeseen tragedy leaves the struggling colony reeling from a shattering loss. Amid the grieving, one girl, Jirana, blessed-- or cursed-- with the ability to foresee potential futures, will help Xhinna find a way forward. The answer lies in time . . . or, rather, in timing it: the awesome ability of the dragons to travel through time itself. But that power comes with risks, and by venturing further into the past, Xhinna may be jeopardizing the very future she has sworn to save" -- from publisher's web site
