A must for lovers of Pern

A Gift of Dragons
by Anne McCaffrey
I love this book, have read it many times. It is a collection of 4 shorts in the Pern world.
The Smallest Dragonboy is the story in this collection. It follows Keevan the youngest and littlest candidate to stand on the hatching sands. Will he succeed in impressing a dragonet? Especially when he gets injured and is not there when the hatching starts?
The Girl Who Heard Dragons is the next story. Aramina is of the Ruthan blood line, and her parents are holdless thanks to Fax. They discovered that she could hear all the dragons when they close enough. Then one day she desperately needs their help when he father gets caught under their wagon. This brings her to the notice of Benden Wyer, which helps when the Lady Holdless Thalla tries to kidnap her for her own purpose. Wonderful story.
Runner of Pern shows a totally different aspect of Pern society that we don’t normally get to see, the Runners who take messages all over Pern. How they train, run, and live. Tenna belongs to a family of Runners, generations of her family have run the taces of Pern and now she on her first CrossCountry run. Just before she reaches Fort Hold, almost the end of her crosscountry run, she run off the traces by a man on a runnerbeast who is not supposed to be on the traces. delightful little story with a smattering of possible young romance.
Ever the Twain is the last story in this book. A set of twins are both are searched for the eggs on the Ista Wyer sands. Can the both impress on hatching day or will one be left while one takes to the skies?This ebook is a delightful look at the younger people of Pern, and some different aspects not in the Wyers or Holds. A must have for anyone that loves Pern and her dragons. Five stars.
