I have always loved Anne’s Tower and hive series and Pegasus in flight series. I was always hoping for another book in the series, but know that’s not possible now. I’ve tried to read the pern books and don’t enjoy them as much as the tower and hive. Are there any other series that may be similar?
You might want to give The Crystal Singer series a look.
Also — one of my favorites — you might check out the Freedom series (starting with Freedom’s Landing).
