Summary: 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...

Review: The first Pern book I've read other than the Harper's Hall trilogy. Good in its own right, but not nearly as good as Dragonsong or Dragonsinger... or perhaps the plots of those just interested me more. It was good to get a bit of the background to those books though.

I rushed to finish the book, but honestly it was good mostly by how it explained things of Harper's Hall. I'm keen to reread them sometime soon now.
