McCaffrey said in 2000, "There are no demographics on my books which indicate the readers are predominantly of an age or sex group. Dragons have a universal appeal"!

Wake up, sleepyhead!. Sis shouted at Kindan. Kindan squirmed further into the warm blankets. Abruptly his pillow was pulled out from under his head. He groaned, startled by the sudden movement. Kaylek said, roughly turning his youngest brother out of the bed. I’m up! I’m up!. He wished he had just a bit more time to remember his dream. Momma was in it, he was sure. Kindan never told anyone about his dreams of his mother, not after the first time

Young Kindan has no expectations other than joining his father in the mines of Camp Natalon, a coal mining settlement struggling to turn a profit far from the great Holds where the presence of dragons and their riders means safety and civilization. Mining is fraught with danger. Fortunately, the camp has a watch-wher, a creature distantly related to dragons and uniquely suited to specialized work in the dark, cold mineshafts. Kindan's father is the watch-wher's handler, and his son sometimes helps him out. But even that important job promises no opportunity outside the mine. Then disaster strikes. In one terrible instant, Kindan loses his family and the camp loses its watch-wher. Fathers are replaced by sons in the mine - except for Kindan, who is taken in by the camp's new Harper. Grieving, Kindan finds a measure of solace in a burgeoning musical talent...and in a new friendship with Nuella, a mysterious girl no one seems to know exists. It is Nuella who assists Kindan when he is selected to hatch and train a new watch-wher, a job that forces him to give up his dream of becoming a Harper; and it is Nuella who helps him give new meaning to his life. Meanwhile, sparked by the tragedy, long-simmering tensions are dividing the camp. Far below the surface, a group of resentful miners hides a deadly secret. As warring factions threaten to explode, Nuella and Kindan begin to discover unknown talents in the misunderstood watch-wher - talents that could very well save an entire Hold. During their time teaching the watch-wher, the two learn some things themselves: that even a seemingly impossible dream is never completely out of reach...and that light can be found even in the deepest darkness.

While keeping the reader on pins and needles throughout the entire book, Dragon's Kin shows the reader some insights into the lives of the folk who support the most important group on PERN, the dragonriders. One would not expect miners of coal to be as important as the dragonriders themselves .... till you read this book. It shows the reader why the dragons would be useless without the miners to back them up. It also gives great insight into how important the smaller, ugly creatures related to the dragos are, who the miners need to help them in the mines. The book also gives great illustrations of not only what the actual jobs of the Harpers are on PERN, but also how they can spring from any and all crafts on the planet, just as the dragonriders do.

#1 The book:
This book is not about he Dragons , but about there kin the Watch-Weyrs. Written by Tod McCaffrey with the assistance of Anne McCaffrey it is a fine example of the series(sorry having trouble not giving away the book :) ). It takes place in a small mining village on the planet of PERN. Will you will just have to trust me , because I will not give away as a great a story as this.

#2 The series:

Will if you haven't read the series then there are a few things you should know about it. The amount of violence in the series is extremely low and only what is necessary to keep the plot moving forward in the direction that it is supposed to go. The cussing (yes there is cussing) is all a made up language and extremely soft-core as far as such things go. Like "Shards of the first egg" would be their version of something to say when the worst is happening. All the Dragons are on the side of good , even if there riders are a little confused on the matter. So no man eating dragons in this series.

Well worth reading the entire set. This is so far one of the best in the set that has come out.

Written by Anne McCaffrey and her son Todd McCaffrey, Dragon's Kin is set sixteen turns (years) before the third pass of the Red Star and with it the dreaded "Thread" that destroys anything living. It is the story of Kinden, Nuella, Zenor and two watch-whers (kin to dragons and fire lizards). They have to learn how to raise and train the watch-wher to help in the mines. All the while a group of greedy, resentful miners are cutting corners. When this comes to be known and an explosion accurs, the watch-wher has to save the day.

I liked the book. It is well written. I felt that the characters were believeable and I wanted to find out what happens to them next.

A very exciting and thrilling story of three people who although having suffered great loss, gained and gave all those around them hope, love, and a new lease on life, while discovering new abilities in a person and a creature given short-shrift, much as we do to people and animals with a disability. A great read, wonderfully done!

I've been so wanting to visit Perm again.
You have filled in a lovely part of the history of Perm.
I enjoyed it very much and as soon as I can I would buy your Perm books to join your mother's on my book shelf.
Thanks again

I have been a fan of this author's books for years. This book is one of the best that I have been able to read and I have read almost all that have been written by this author.
I really enjoyed the novel! The new trilogy (Dragon's Kin, Dragon's Fire, and Dragon Harper) are a great addition to the Pern world in my opinion. Dragon's Kin is probably my favorite of the three because you finally learn about watch-whers. Although it kind of makes you wonder what happened to the watch-whers in the 9th Pass because they do not seem to have the exact same abilities as these ones (although there is a suggestion in future novels that the watch-whers in this 3rd pass time end up turned into dragons, so the 9th pass watch-whers are probably a "de-evolved version" or something.) Either way, I found the novel very fun to read and I think most Pern fans would enjoy it.
