Moreta Dragonlady Of PernAd the parasite would devour any and all organic life it encountered The future of the planet rested in the hands of Moreta and the other dedicated selfless Pernese leaders But of all their problems the most difficult to overcome was tim. I was really delighted to be starting in on another Anne McCaffery book after too long away As a child I sort of looked down my nose at McCaffery's escapist simplicity but as an adult I find I love it at least as a change of pace and I no longer believe that grittiness necessarily euates to realism I also no longer believe that I could write such a happy world if I triedBecause Pern is a happy world A kind of STAR TREKTOS with dragons The good people are noble and true and hardworking The bad are few and far between and immediately recognizable by their shittiness and all around douchebaggerySo I didn't mind that we spent three solid chapters at the beginning doing nothing than dressing for a party going to a party and dancing the night away also drinking and flirting But my interest flagged when the book stopped being about MoretaI should note here that the Moreta character is heavily referenced in other works as there heroiest heroine in the history of ever And her book really isn't about her It really ought to be entitled MASTER HEALER WHOEVER and the CURE FOR THE NOT AIDS Which he found by re reading his exam notes from Pern college So yeahWe spend A LOT of time nursing Master Healer Whoever And when Moreta gets sick we find out about it after the fact as she's recovering Ditto with Alessan our love interestAnd there's another problem with this book What I was expecting based on references in other works mainly Nerilka's StoryA story of a forbidden affair Moreta Mary Sue dragonladyherotime travelerhealernoble and pure soul is trapped in an abusive relationship with her domineering Weyerpartner RE EALLY Not sure how that would work out within the mythos of Pern since it seems that the Weyer community at large would never stand for anything bad to happen to a precious dragon ueen rider And also dragons love their riders and can eat offensive people But that's what seemed to be implied in other storiesAnyway abusive relationship circumvented by the magical healing power of a clandestine tryst with the much sought after Lord Alessan Who is a no no because I guess he's not a dragonrider himself They sneak moments together even as a terrible plague sweeps Pern She nurses him He nurses her He confronts evil bad abusive Weyerleader She will leave the Weyer and bring her ginormous gold dragon to live with him Their bond is so strong that even his not dragonridery self is able to hear the thoughts of her gold dragon Together they save The WORLD What I gotview spoilerMoreta has a finicky petulant bronze rider who I think with all the name dropping it's hard to be sure is in a relationship with someone else He and Moreta are kinda on the outs but they were really never on the ins and whatever they had was a dragon induced one time thing Free dragon love yo And she'll be replacing him next chance she getsShe goes to a party and flirts Then everyone goes home and a plague wipes out pretty much everyone until Master Healer Whoever reads his notes and saves the day A super long time was spent in preparation for Threadfall preparation for uarantine etc Then there might be another plague For some reason Alessan and Moreta get together despite the fact that the party where they flirted for the one and onlyeth time is now synonymous with DEATHThe ending was fairly terrible for two reasons First she suddenly remembers upon seeing him that she has a son Whom she has not worried about or thought of in the slightest for the entire plague riddled book Why did he even need to be in this book He did nothing aside from demonstrate some of the practical workings of free dragon love which he is somehow fine with unlike every adoptedfostered child I have ever metSpeaking of characters who do nothing that brings me to the other problem with this book's ending Other reviewers have complained about it but it bears re mentioning The entire second half of the book is HEAVILY overburdened with name dropping bloat Lots and lots and lots of names of people who show up once do nothing and leave So much so that the entire point of the book the tragic ending is entirely obscured under these barrels of new monkeys Instead of describing the grueling feat that cost the heroine her life we hear about lists and lists of people who don't matter to the plot in the slightest The tragic ending was left as a tiny island of stuff happening in a sea of names as long as a Levitical genealogy The overall effect was that her sacrifice sounded an awful lot like a silly rookie mistake instead of a world savingNot one major character did any of the thinking necessary for the saving of the world Master Healer Whoever found developed and made the cure made the plan to save the world and helped to implement it All Moreta did was implement his plan All Alessan did was look good hide spoiler

I remember this being one of my favorite Dragonriders of Pern books I wasn't sure that would remain the same but as I got further into the book I realized that it was still a great book In this story we find Pern almost to the end of a thread pass but stricken with a terrible sickness that is killing so many There is no cure for beast or human They must treat the symptoms and get through the sickness They need to vaccinate all the humans as well as the runners since this sickness is spread through animals Moreta is a fantastic character who goes above and beyond to save Pern She is a very likable character There was joy and there was a lot of sadness I wept at the loss It is a beautiful book with an amazingly strong and willful female protagonist
