Kindan is an apprentice harper at the Harper Hall but he is finding the lessons very difficult and although he has his friends- Nonala- Kelsa and Verilan- he also has enemies- such as the bully Vaxoram. Things begin to improve for Kindan when he beats Vaxoram in a duel and Vaxoram becomes first his servant and then gradually his trusted friend. Then Kindan impresses a fire-lizard and becomes the proud owner of the magnicent Valla. At the hatching he meets Koriana- daughter of Lord Holder Bemin of Fort Hold. She also impresses and she and Kindan fall in love- but her parents disapprove and she has to return to Fort Hold. Then a plague begins to spread across Pern- killing nearly everyone infected. Kindan and his friends search the harper records to see if they can find a cure- but all they can find is mention of a similar plague over a hundred Turns past. As the plague gets worse Kindan and Vaxoram are sent to Fort Hold to help tend the sick. Kindan will be reunited with Koriana- but will she be free of the plague- and will he be able to find a cure before more people die?... Please click here to ask a question
