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.

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.
