Dragonflight

A Pern novel by Anne McCaffrey

< read all 2 reviews

Lessa's introduction

  • Jan 12, 2011
Rating:
+5
The Dragonriders, once revered members of Pern's society, have fallen into disfavor and have dwindled in numbers.

Its remaining single queen dragon, close to death, has her last clutch. The dragonriders go on a Search for candidate and find Lessa - the last remaining member of the ruling family of the once proud Ruatha Hold.

This book follows the path that Lessa, and her lover and mate F'lar, must take to convince Pern of the imminent threat of Threadfall, an organism that falls from the sky and devours any organic matter.

Dragonflight is the first of the Pern novels published, and McCaffrey creates an engaging and thrilling world. It still remains one of my favorite Pern books and has gone through many re-readings!
