The second book in Anne McCaffrey's Pern series, Dragonquest shows the direction which the series will walk.
What I like ✅ engaging, descriptive, beautiful prose
✅ immersive world-building as different cultures clash
✅ an interesting ensemble cast of characters
✅ MORE DRAGONS AND TINY DRAGONS
What I didn't like ✖ not enough focus on established protagonists, Lessa and F'lar
✖ the plot ambles as the characters get weighed down with the day-to-day tasks of maintaining a weyr and thread-fighting
✖ the nuances of weyr-life can be disturbing; normalising rape and domestic violence
Things to consider ➖ I am now forever sad because I'll never be mentally bonded with a dragon who will love me unconditionally and forever😢 Rating 4/5 🌟 Verdict
