Review: Dragonflight



A Forgotten Classic: Dragonflight by Anne Mccaffrey



HOW CAN ONE GIRL SAVE AN ENTIRE WORLD?
To the nobles who live in Benden Weyr, Lessa is nothing but a ragged kitchen girl. For most of her life she has survived by serving those who betrayed her father and took over his lands. Now the time has come for Lessa to shed her disguise—and take back her stolen birthright.
But everything changes when she meets a queen dragon. The bond they share will be deep and last forever. It will protect them when, for the first time in centuries, Lessa’s world is threatened by Thread, an evil substance that falls like rain and destroys everything it touches. Dragons and their Riders once protected the planet from Thread, but there are very few of them left these days. Now brave Lessa must risk her life, and the life of her beloved dragon, to save her beautiful world. . .



I forgot how exciting it is to (re)learn about Pern, the dragon riders and see the characters discovering their world again. It's been decades since I first read these, I think. And it's nice yo be back. Parts came back to me as I read, and some scenes were new again. The rich world, people and events is still a joy to read. The time travel parts dose mess with one's head a bit, but that is true for any well thought out story with time travel. I'm looking forward to rereading them all again.
