Dragon’s Code, by Gigi McCaffrey

$25 gift card giveaway! Keep reading for details!

If you haven’t read any of Anne McCaffrey’s Pern series, you really need to start at the beginning. But don’t worry, you don’t have to read all 20-something titles before you get to this one! Just six: Dragonflight, Dragonquest, Dragonsong, Dragonsinger, The White Dragon, and Dragondrums. (Links at the end of the post.) There’s a bit of plot overlap between Gigi McCaffrey’s new one and the last couple, but if you’ve read the others, that’s part of the charm.

For those of you who have loved this series since it first came out (I’m not old enough to make that claim, but I’ve loved it since I first discovered it), you’ll feel the same way about this one that I do.

5 stars, for bringing me back home.

These three reads, all coming October 2, are blowing us away!!!

But wait! That’s not all!!! (Ha! We’ve always wanted to say that.)

Two more of our most anticipated releases of the year are also coming out on the same day!!!

Welcome back to Pern! New book in just 5 weeks! (Aka I beg for books and have strange interactions at the post office.)

Welcome back to Pern! New book in just 5 weeks! (Aka I beg for books and have strange interactions at the post office.)

Remember that authorAnne McCaffrey? The one who made me (Erin) decide to become an author? The one I couldn’t talk to without sobbing?

(You might know her better as the Anne McCaffrey who’s in the Science Fiction Hall of Famethe SFFWA Grand Master, winner of both the Hugo and Nebula Awards, winner of the Robert A. Heinlein award for lifetime achievement as a fantasy and science fiction author… Right, that Anne McCaffrey. But I’m sure the bit about what she means to me personally is on a card in the SF Hall of Fame somewhere.)

Okay, so her daughter, Gigi McCaffrey, is releasing a new Pern book in OctoberDragon’s Codeand I’m so excited I can’t stand it. (Imagine a thirty-minute pause here while I tried and failed to find a gif showing how profoundly excited I am. I’m not a gif connoisseur, apparently. I did, however, spell ‘connoisseur’ correctly on the first go, which surprised me and made me feel a little better about the whole gif thing.)
