This is in "moho" where the meat of the Pern stories begins, ( none of Todd's ) All the other books in other Passes, are branches and/or results of stories within this 9th Pass,
What concerns me more is this line from the web page " restore the ancient tradition of dragon-riding and uncover the secret history of the planet." Is this an indication they are going to Twist the story line? Dragonriding didn't need restoring. And What Secret of the planet did I miss that wasn't explained in the forewards?
