Dragonsinger by Anne McCaffrey
Book DescriptionWhen Menolly, daughter of Yanus Sea Holder, arrived at the Harper Craft Hall, she came in style, aboard a huge bronze dragon, followed by her nine fire lizards. The Masterharper of Pern, aware of her unique skills, had chosen her as his only girl apprentice. But the holdless girl had first to overcome many heartaches in this strange new life. Two things sustained her -- her devoted lizards, a subject on which she was fitted to instruct her Masters -- and the music...music of compelling beauty, music-making where at last she was accepted. In the Great Hall, Menolly could fulfil her destiny.

Harper Hall Collection, Hardback (June 2016)View all books by Anne McCaffrey
A young woman allies with magnificent dragons in the Harper Hall trilogy, set within science fiction legend Anne McCaffrey s beloved and bestselling Dragonriders of Pern series. This collectable box set include all three books in the trilogy: Dragonsong, Dragonsinger, and Dragondrums."
US Kirkus Review » Further adventures on the planet Pern, for those who followed talented Menolly through last year's Dragonsong - from her native hold where (being a girl) she's not allowed to harp, to a cave where she "Impresses" nine hatchling fire lizards, and at last to the Harper Craft Hall where everyone is awed by her command of the little winged creatures. And where, in this sequel, she wins over even the most dour of the Masters with her astounding musical talent (though the lyrics quoted here are dreadful). In fact, before a sevenday has passed she "walks the tables" from apprentice to journeyman, and the only sour note comes from the jealous girls in her cot - the leader of whom is expelled after a run-in with our heroine. Picture The New Girl at School on a fantastic, feudal planet and you've got it. . . . But there's sure to be more, as the Masterharper keeps expressing his faith in the future importance to Pern of the fire lizards who seem, so far, to be just cute pets. And, so far, this is overreaching and trivial at once. (Kirkus Reviews)
