Merelan was the most outstanding soprano ever heard on Pern, and was often the only one who could master Petiron's technically accomplished compositions. When, after a long and difficult birth, Robinton was born to them, it should have been the culmination of a unique partnership. But Petiron, almost from the first day, had no time for his son, refusing to see the incredible talent the boy possessed, ignoring his achievements and maintaining a strict and disapproving vigilance over him at all times. Carefully, secretly, the Harper Hall took over, training the greatest talent Pern had ever seen - a talent that was more than just musical, for Robinton was able to talk to the dragons of Pern. As constant sadness beset his personal life, so a startling career sent him like a meteor through the Holds and Weyrs of Pern until, as MasterHarper, he became part of the great plan to rescue Lessa from the brutal rule of Holder Fax - Lessa, who was to be the saviour of the dragons of Pern.Read Less

Must Read Prequel to Harper Hall Trilogy
Want to know more about Harper Hall? You've read the trilogy, and wonder how Robinton came to be? Read about the young Robinton and his family in this gripping prequel to the Harper Hall Trilogy. There's a reason he's so empathetic with Menolly and Piemer. Follow the Master Harper as he grows up into the wise teacher of Harper Hall. I added this hardcover to my Harper Hall Trilogy as a must -have- to- reread volume.
