Teaser Tuesday: Dragongirl by Todd McCaffrey

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by The Purple Booker. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Talenth grumbled irritably as they emerged from between into the early morning heat of Igen. Fiona could hardly blame her; the heat was so great it felt like a physical blow and she wasn't straining her wings to keep them airborne.
This week, to further my goal to read all the Pern books, I am reading Dragongirl by Todd McCaffrey. Here is the description from Amazon:
Young Fiona, rider of the gold queen Talenth, has returned from the past, where she and a group of dragons and riders fled so that the wounded could heal from their previous battles with Thread and the younger dragons could safely grow to fighting age. Gone only three days, yet aged more than three years, Fiona is no longer a child but a woman prepared to fight against the Thread that threatens to destroy her world.

Fiona’s life takes a pivotal turn when a shocking tragedy thrusts her into a position of authority. Now she finds herself leading weyrfolk who have a hard time trusting a senior Weyrwoman who is both young and an outsider.


  1. Sounds very interesting - is it told from the dragon's perspective? Here's mine: http://bit.ly/2miqzA1

  2. Been a while since I've read a Pern book, but it sounds good. Hope you enjoy it!

  3. I love Anne McCaffrey! I haven't read too many of her books, but what I've read I loved. I like the sound of this one. I really need to read the Pern series.

  4. A character named Fiona always captures my interest (the name of one of my granddaughters), and while I don't often read stories about dragons, they do intrigue me. Thanks for sharing...and here's mine: “THE GOOD DAUGHTER”

  5. I'm sure I've read this. I have the series in hardcover. But I don't remember that cover. This is a favorite series for me!

  6. My brother is a fan of this series.
