I FINALLY got it!!!!

And yeah, I read it already.

I loved "Runner of Pern", but "The Littlest Dragonboy" was a close runner up. I have to admit, I liked "Ever The Twain" a lot more than "The Girl Who Heard Dragons". Anyone else see a possible Kylara in Robina? Good thing she Impressed a green, not the Gold!

Now that you've mentioned it, I do see a similarity between Robina and Kylara.

Hm... Maybe Kylara could be from the same blood line as Robina...

Never thought of that...though there are Kylara's in every time and place, as many of us know from *experience*

I love A Gift of Dragons it's one of my favourite Pern books. The stories are ones that you can read over and over again, and the illustrations are nice.

I thought it was great, I especially liked runner of Pern, it's great to see things from a different view point!

I LOVE that picture of K'van under Heth's wing!! It really shows, somehow, the loving bond of dragon/rider. I don't know why, it just does.
