FBI psychologist Olivia Sotiris was looking for a cool ocean breeze, sand between her toes, and a break from her crazy, chaotic, and sometimes all-too-dangerous life.

For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf--her wolf--is a chilling presence she can't seem to live without. Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives: In winter, the frozen woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl. In summer, a few precious months of being human . . . until the cold makes him

Now, Grace meets a yellow-eyed boy whose familiarity takes her breath away. It's her wolf...









(Vols. 1 - 3)

From the Goodreads Synopsis

Life inside of the major tree called Pern resembles a preindustrial society with lords, holds, harpers (musicians, entertainers & teachers) & dragons, with the occasional examples of higher technology like flamethrowers, telegraph, chemical fertilizers, microscopes & telescopes.
One of the main threats to Pernese civilization is Thread, described as a mycorrhizoid spore that periodically rains down on the planet due to the orbit of the Red Star.The Pernese use intelligent firebreathing dragons & their riders to fight Thread. The riders have a telepathic bond with their dragons, formed by Impression at the dragon's hatching.

The original trilogy stories, collected in an omnibus edition, take place immediately before & during the Ninth Pass.
