grandsue avatar reviewed on

In this vist to Pern we find out more about the watchwhers. These creatures, genetically engineered by Wind Blossom, the daughter of the famed Kitty Ping who engineered the Dragons of Pern from indigeous fire lizards, are photosensitive. They are useless in daylight,however,the miners find them very handy in the dark mines. Watchwhers, who bond with their handlers just as Dragons do with their riders, prove to be a great asset since they can detect both "bad air" and tunnel snakes.
This then is the story of a watchwhere handler, a girl with a secret, and a harper with a long range view. Enjoy yet another visit to Pern and it's resourceful residents.
