With F'lar and Lessa as the hero and heroine, the book quickly captures the readers attention and the wonderful dragons they ride are a magical and magnificent part of their story.
It is an epic tale, telling of battles, riders, armies and a biological enemy that only the dragons can destroy. It has everything - including adventure and romance.
I can't wait to re-read the whole series. I promise you that Anne McCaffrey's books will tell you how humans arrived on this Earth like planet called Pern. How they bred the dragons and developed one of the most unique communities ever to feature in English literature.
I enjoyed this book, characters were nicely covered and story line was well done.
Now need to get next book.
The girl is Lessa, forced into servitude by the Lord who ursurped her lands and title, but whose success in winning back those lands brings her to the attention of the Dragon Riders of the title. Though too few in numbers, and barely tolerated by a world that has forgotten the need for the great telepathic dragons and their riders, they are all that stands against the coming dark. They need Lessa, and it is with the riders that Lessa finds her most enduring love when she bonds with the newly hatched, and last, of the golden queen dragons. As to the threat, well that's one of the things that makes Dragonflight unique as it does not involve hordes of the undead, orcs or aliens. Similarly, the act of bravery stands out as one of the best imagined resolutions to an impossible problem in fiction. And arrival of the cavalry is just that, but with a neat McCaffrey twist that brings all of the plot lines together, as every ending should. Dragonflight is a great read.
