Beschreibung

For more than 30 years, Pern has conjured visions of brave men and women mounted upon the backs of dragons. As anyone knows who has been touched by the storytelling magic of Anne McCaffrey, to hear of the exotic world of Pern is to inhabit it - and to experience its extraordinary dragons is to soar aloft with them and share their dazzling adventures. Now, A Gift of Dragons brings together three beloved stories and a thrilling new tale of Pern in a single volume. In "The Smallest Dragonboy," Keevan is the youngest dragonrider candidate, determined to impress a dragon when the next clutch of eggs hatches. But what transpires will surprise everyone - Keevan most of all. In "The Girl Who Heard Dragons," a young girl's rare ability to communicate with dragons puts her family in danger and will bring her face to face with her greatest fears - and with her most secret desire. The "Runner of Pern" is a girl named Tenna, who follows family tradition by delivering messages - and who will find her destiny on the mossy traces that runners have used for centuries under the dragon-filled sky. And finally, a very special gift: an exciting new Pern adventure, published here for the first time, fresh from the imagination of Anne McCaffrey.

Lovely escape to Dragon Lore - wunderbarer Ausflug ins Drachenland

If you have made acquintance with Anne McCaffrey's writing in general and her world of Pern in particular, you will love this collection of 4 short stories (from ca. 1 to 3 hours reading time).
Each is an individual story focussing on a specific facet of Pern, from Dragon Hatching to Runners.
The stories are short and thus not developing any excessively intricate plot lines, but are just so perfect for some easy listening and a little trip into Dragon Fantasy World.

_________________________________

Wenn Sie Anne McCaffrey's Arbeit und besonders Ihre wunderbare Welt Pern bereits kennen, werden Sie diese kleine Sammlung von 4 kurzen Geschichten lieben (ca. 1 bis 3 Stunden Lesezeit).
Jede ist eine abgeschlossene Geschichte die einen bestimmten Aspekt Pern's aufgreift, vom Schlüpfen der Drachen bis zu den Läufern.
Die Geschichten sind kurz und entwickeln daher keine hoch-komplexen Erzähl-Stränge, aber gerade deshalb sind sie geradezu perfekt für leichtes, entspannendes Zuhören und einen kleinen Ausflug ins Drachen-Wunderland.
