Default Re: Collecting Highlight (34) - Dragonharper and Dragonfire by Jody Lynn Nye

I remember really enjoying Dragonfire. Mirrim's character matches well to Anne's portrayal of her, but with the book being from her perspective she's much more sympathetic that she is at times in Anne's books. I found it really helped explain her point of view. And it also fills in the gap of how she and T'gellan get together, as I recall (been a long time since I read it).

Dragonharper was harder to enjoy, as Masterharper of Pern had already been published by the time I got a hold of a copy, and therefore this story was redundant to that one. But some folk might like it as an alternative bit of history to the "perfect" Robbie of MHoP.
