It is hardly the time for disturbing distractions—such as the strange voice Fiona suddenly hears in her mind at the darkest and most urgent moments.Circumstances and the mood of the weyrfolk worsen when advance patrols relay the dreaded news that black dust—the unmistakable herald of falling Thread—has been sighted. As more dragons sicken and die, leaving only a new generation of weyrlings too young to succeed them, Weyrleader B’Nik and queen rider Lorana arrive from Benden Weyr to comb Fort Weyr’s archives in a desperate search for clues from the past that may hold the solution to the plague.But could the actual past itself prove the pathway to salvation for Pern’s stricken dragons and the entire imperiled planet? Guided by a mysterious ally from a wholly unexpected place, and trusting in the unique dragon gift for transcending time, Fiona will join a risky expedition with far-reaching consequences for both Pern’s future and her personal destiny.
