JACKET:

DRAGONQUEST. Most Pernese are grateful to dragonkind for keeping Holds and Craftshalls safe. But some, resenting their obligations to the weyrs, have begun to complain about the privileged status of dragonriders.

When a few ambitious Lords decide that dragonmen should go to the Red Star - using their beasts' teleportation ability - in order to destroy the Threads at their source, F'nor, brother of F'lar, is intrigued. But his brown dragon needs a detailed image of a place in order to go there... and the images F'nor picks up - from an unexpected source - are terrifying!

My Opinion Is...
This is for the second book, Dragonquest.

My first opinion was that the book was merely being continued for the sake of continuing it. It's about seven years later, people fall into routine with the old timers set in their isolated ways while the people of Benden Weyr are struggling to make the old timers realize that a lot has changed in 400 years.

The introduction of the fire lizards was pretty neat but I think that's the only interesting thing I liked. The other stuff was a bit boring. I wouldn't say I struggled through the book but it was just... Eh. So-so.

I believe I'll take a break from this book and read another book. I don't want to putter out through the White Dragon.
