Spectra (1997), Mass Market Paperback, 208 pages
|This is the third book in the Harper Hall trilogy (after Dragonsong and Dragonsinger). I didn't enjoy it as much as the other two. This book focuses on Piemur instead of Mellony, and the first half is about his pubescent turmoil, which is probably why I didn't enjoy this book as much. I had similar objections to The White Dragon, which is a very similar book to this one. However, the second half of the book is pretty good, and overall I thought it was a useful contribution to the overall story line of the series.
