The dragons of Pern boldly go where no dragon has gone before in this volume of the Dragonriders saga. Stumbling upon an ancient fortress carved out by their technologically advanced ancestors, the original colonists of Pern, they accidentally re-awaken its dormant guardian, a sentient artificial intelligence. Under its guidance, will it be possible to not only jump-start their world's technology but also to use it to end Threadfall once and for all? Not only the Dragonrider Weyrs but also the entire political structure of the planet will be thrown into upheaval as a result of their efforts.

Although it involves familiar characters like Jaxom and his white dragon Ruth, this volume is more reminiscent of "Dragonfall" or "Chronicles of Pern" than stories like "The White Dragon", because of the strong focus on the colonists and their legacy. So in other words, this is more of a sci-fi oriented novel than a fantasy one like the core classic Pern novels.
