It's the task of Dragonriders and their dragons to protect the people of Pern, but now an epidemic is sweeping the land. The dragonriders stand ready to help, but Kindan, a young apprentice to the guild of musicians and teachers known as the Harpers, recognizes the true danger. Thread, a spore that descends on Pern, is about to fall. Since the dragonriders can't break quarantine, it falls to Kindan to find another way to stop the spread of the illness and protect the dragonriders.
