In Dragonsblood, the story switches between past and present where Windblossom, one of the original Pern colonists is trying to create a legacy involving genetic engineering. In a time where dragons are dying from Thread, is capable of saving the dragons. In present time, Loranna is also dealing with dying dragons, and reaches back in time to Windblossom to save the dragons.
There was very little that I actually liked about the book. The writing was subpar. The storyline is both confusing and not especially interesting. The dialogue is weak. I wasn't very impressed with Anne McCaffrey as a writer, and I don't think her son is any better. This is a weak novel. Unless you're tied into the Pern series, I would skip it.
