The air trembled with Threadfalland the holds seethed with rebellion.

Dragondrums is the third of the “Harper” books and though it also works fine as a standalone, the previous two books did initially establish Piemur, the main character in the book. McCaffrey views these three books as a trilogy or if the publisher decided to lump them together and advertise them as one.

Dragondrums (Harper Hall, #3) by Anne McCaffrey

You had done a brilliant job with the first two books in this “trilogy”, so please do explain why you felt compelled to switch your focus from our beloved heroine Menolly to her rambunctious sidekick, Piemur? Contents [ show ]. Piemur isn’t a bad sort, just a rather impetuous boy who gets in a lot of trouble.

Reading Dragonsinger in the 5th grade began a lifelong love of sci-fi and fantasy and even though it kind of made me a fist class nerd picture nose always buried in a book I wouldn’t want it any other way. There were lots ann characters that something happened to and then were forgotten about. I just started writing little bits for a mid sized daily in our area or at least trying – I got a couple little mini features in – but I was only in 9th grade! Read, highlight, and take notes, across web, tablet, dragondruma phone.

The only good thing I can find is the fact that, through the story of the central character, we are following some interesting developments like the further maturation of Menolly, beyond that could not find anything interesting.


Otherwise the nuances of the story will be lost on you. Why this final book jumps gears so completely is beyond me. I remember distinctly not liking this book as much as the other two of this series when I read it back as mccaffreu child oh, yes I was doing a reread bit for a couple daysbut it turns out that it’s actually a fun book!

Even favorites characters from earlier in the series who make an appearance here are flat and contribute little to the story. It’s a shame that his personality seemed to take a degree turn towards the end, once he met Sharra.

My library Help Advanced Book Search. This story follows one of the supporting characters from Dragonsinger through his coming of age. I found a lot of similarities in the rivarly of Peimer and the drum hall boys as Menolly struggled with in the 2nd book with the girlsbut overall I found this one a more exciting read with more world of Pern things going on.

It seems to me that you would not have had to read them though, this is the first told from Piemur’s point of view and as all of us seem different from the inside of our heads to how people see us on the outside, so Piemur is very different to himself than to others.

I wanted to watch Menolly and Sebell develop their relationship! The ,ccaffrey of the trilogy focuses is set three turns years after the events in the previous two books. Dragondrums title listing at the Internet Speculative Fiction Database. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. But when his voice begins to change, Piemur loses all mccafrey and questions everything he thought he knew about himself. No longer capable of singing, Piemur is sent on various errands by Masterharper Robinton, including the task of learning the complicated beats of the messenger drums.


As one might discern from my list I am a huge Anne McCaffrey fan. Piemur won me over however and I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Finished the third in the Harper Hall trilogy which switched points of view from misfit Menolly to one of my favorite mischievous boys in literature: Out of the three books, this one is the best even though the main character switches from Menolly to her best friend.

Being so moved by this strange to me book, I decided to write Anne, never expecting to hear back, but sure enough, a great little ddagondrums letter found it’s way into my parent’s mailbox a This was one of dragonndrums first “adult” fantasy books mccaffrye I LOVED it!

But I quickly got over my disappointment as I was taken into Piemur’s world.

Now this – this is interesting, because it’s so clearly a book meant to eragondrums read with information from other books in the series, information that the first two Harper Hall books don’t have. I am not even kidding and I understand I am losing all my street cred by confessing this.

Master Domick sends Piemur to Master Shonagarwho confirms he will no longer be able to sing soprano and thus is forced to remove him as his apprenticebut sends him to Robintonsuggesting there is still work for him. Still an old favorite though mxcaffrey I appreciate being able to come to it with a new light. Hope to review all of these books individually in time but I want to devote the proper attention to it and with my two little monkeys–climbing around that would be difficult!

In his adventures throughout Pern, Piemur has only dragondruks knowledge and wits to deal with a cruel Lord Holder and rogue dragonriders.
