I wish there was a four-and-a-half to give this book, because it has excellent writing and story weaving inside, but some of the content is not quite to my taste. Just some, mind you. Following young Jaxom and dragon Ruth, you once more enter the world of Pern and its clashes. Will the Old Timer Dragonriders bring chaos to Pern? Will Jaxom and his friends discover the secrets of man's origins on Pern? Will Ruth be acknowledged as a proper dragon? You will just have to read the story for yourself as you follow the dragon and rider to the southern continent where secrets are burried deep under ashes. What happens in this story affects the future of all dragon riders.

This graphic novel draws you into the troubles of the teen Serenity, who is anything but her name. Serenity's had trouble with plenty of schools, and there's no guaranty she'll get much more mercy from the teachers and students at the new highschool she attends. But the members of the local prayer club prove to be more of a challenge then Serenity ever expected. I say this is a really good story, and hope you'll enjoy it.
As a person who is very interested in biology and many of the topics discussed in the book i did find it interesting but not all that thrilling or well written. I thought it was quite precictable and hard to understand when it got into the nitty-gritty science things. I did not understand many of the science terms even though i have studied these things for over two months. I also found the book to have a flat plotline. Even the tense and more exciting scenes were not much more than people yelling and threatening each other. Also i dont understand how many little parts of the story relate to the main plot of the story and as the book goes on they never explain it or even say why it was put in there in the first place. All in all the book was not terrible and was pretty good for a science book but it would not be something i would choose to read in my free time for fun.
In this book that adds to the adventures already written about Pern, a colonized planet with no connection to earth and with plenty of dangers, the author spins an interesting tale once more. Moreta, a wyrewoman and rider of the Golden Dragon queen Orlith, holds your attention as she tries, along with several more heros, to save Pern from an epidemic that could wipe out not only all of their much needed animals, but all of man. But part of the conclusion leaves you crying out in frusteration, "How could the author do that?" Though an okay read, "Moreta: Dragonlady of Pern" is not up to the standard that I've had from some of Anne McCaffrey's other books.
