Thread is on its way over Pern and the Holders are angry with the dragonriders. As the Red Star continues to advance toward our world, it is up to the riders to fight a war on two fronts. One against time to prepare for the imminent Thread, and the other for their health against the Holders of Pern. With only a short time to prepare before the ancient enemy falls once more, the population of dragons is in danger. After the death of their eldest queen and the fall of the brownriding Weyrleaders, two queens, only one old enough to rise, are left to populate the Weyrs, with very little time to do so. Short tithes and shoddy food force the riders to struggle to provide for themselves. Relations between the Weyrleaders and the Lord Holders are caustic. Can the riders and their bonded dragons repair the rift between themselves and Holders, and produce enough fighting dragons to protect Pern? Can the Weyr convince the Holders that the dragons are necessary to their survival?
**Dragon's Rise Weyr is coming back from a small hiatus with many big plots to get involved in!The dragons of the Sun Runners clutch have returned after disappearing it the middle of the night shortly after they Impressed. The Weyrleader's dragon has been grounded with a massive injury to his wing and the leadership is up in the air with a sect of bronzeriders who want nothing more than to change the way Pern views the "parasite dragonriders" vying to win the position of Weyrleader. The Weyr Council hatches a scheme to have the Weyrsecond win and become Co-Weyrleaders to keep that from happening.
Meanwhile the weyrlings who came back from the past have brought a jungle fever with them back home which threatens the lives of riders, weyrfolk and dragons alike! Even worse, Thread is looming on the horizon and the riders are fighting a war on two fronts - Thread and fever!
