rough around the edges

This book takes on a new cast of characters in the Pern Dragonrider series. I've read, not listened to, many of the other books set in this world and thoroughly enjoyed them. The premise of this story is rather vague, the writing is awkward and the plot development is tediously slow. The end of this book seems very far away.

not what I was expecting

I have read many Pern books, mostly by Anne M, but a few of Todd M's. This one was full of unrelenting death, with no resolution at the end. I understand it is a "middle" story, where the end is told elsewhere, in another book, but this one left me depressed. I feel that the story was stopped, not ended, as too many things were left hanging. The deaths were also handled unevenly. The characters responded to some deaths very emotionally, and others were mere numbers on a wall.
I will read reviews of Todd M's books more closely now, to see if this book is an anomaly or if this is just his style of writing. The story itself is very good, but the writing feels unfinished. If you haven't read Pern books before, read another one first.
