I really enjoyed this story.  I have not previously read Ann McCaffrey's Dragonriders of Pern world stories, but this story made me go out and pick up a few of the novels. 

As always, dkstories has a way of hitting you emotionally and hooking you into the story as he weaves the politics of the world into and out of the characters' lives.

I first read Rider’s Pride in autumn 2013, when I was but a weyrling on GA. Yes, in case you're wondering, I'm a fan of the world created by Anne McCaffrey. Since then, the story has repeatedly captivated me. Each reading as enjoyable as the first.

The author is faithful to the mythology of Pern as we follow J’shon from his father’s hold to Igen Weyr. He bonds with a green dragon who becomes the most important thing in his life. Dealing with internal conflicts about same-sex relationships, his battle is made difficult by the psychological baggage he carries thanks to his father’s teaching.

Will he be able to overcome ingrained beliefs and find happiness? I won’t spoil it for you. The author weaves romance and adventure skillfully; the ending is bittersweet but you will not regret reading the story.

Ms.McCaffrey’s spirit is alive and well in Rider’s Pride.

I am a big fan of Anne McCaffrey and this story would do her proud. Beautifully written, sad, yet uplifting.
