Volume I of The Dragonriders of Pern#65533;, the groundbreaking series by master storyteller Anne McCaffrey

On a beautiful world called Pern, an ancient way of life is about to come under attack from a myth that is all too real. Lessa is an outcast survivor--her parents murdered, her birthright stolen--a strong young woman who has never stopped dreaming of revenge. But when an ancient threat to Pern reemerges, Lessa will rise--upon the back of a great dragon with whom she shares a telepathic bond more intimate than any human connection. Together, dragon and rider will fly . . . and Pern will be changed forever.

Opinion

From Library Staff

When threads fall from the sky, intent on destroying the planet, the Dragonmen must fight back. But because it's been 400 years since the threads last fell, no one believes them to be a threat, and there are too few dragons and riders to save the world. Until time travel is discovered.

The ending of this was the best part--which may be the case with many books, but it was thrilling figuring everything out and watching it come together. I found the descriptions somewhat lacking, but when McCaffrey did go into detail, it was marvelous!

Lessa and F'lar must ave Pern from Thread (deadly spores that fall from space and devour organic material).

Dragons help.

This series sure has its fanatical followers, but I just couldn't get into it. The human characters lacked depth while the dragons were nothing more than cardboard cutouts (especially when compared to dragons with an actual personality, such as Temeraine). The author pulls a rabbit out of her hat to solve a problem (it's still deus ex machina, even if the author dropped a few paragraphs earlier in the book hinting at the surprise ending).

The first story of Lessa and how she becomes a dragon woman. One of my favorites in the McCaffrey series.
