You mean the dragonrider books by McCaffery?
My mom really likes them, but I just couldn't get interested. Interesting idea about the planet orbiting multiple suns in an erratic orbit that ocationally brings it within trans-migrating distance with a harmful alien lifeform.
I wasn't aware that Anne had passed away and that her son was writing for her now.
The problem is, every author has a different "tone" and, even when their quality is as good as the original's, the style just doesn't match.
As an example, I enjoyed reading "Gone With The Wind", and I also liked "Scarlett", but the Scarlett in "Scarlett" just didn't seem like the same girl as the one in "Gone with the wind". I think it would have been better if her daughter had written about a minor character in the first book. Perhaps Scarlett's son, Wade, or maybe elaborated on how the father, Gerald, came to America and became a plantation owner.
