Dragontime by Anne McCaffrey and Todd McCaffrey

Anne McCaffrey returns to the world of Pern to write with her son Todd.  Her influence is felt in the middle of the book but the beginning and the end are all Todd's, that is not a compliment by the way.

The story line moves to much depending on timing and timing causes paradox so can only be done on a very limited basis.    At one point things are flowing well and then another disaster strikes for no apparent reason as far as plot goes.  The major flaw in my honest opinion is that the "rules" of Pern are broken on a regular basis. 

If you could just read the middle half of the book and leave off the first three and last two chapters you will be pleased, otherwise it might be worth passing on.
