Classic tale of telepathic, teleporting dragons and the humans who bond with them for life. Dragonriders used to be trained to fight “Thread,” a deadly airborne organism that kills living things on contact, to keep their communities safe. But the traditions are dying out, because no Thread has fallen for hundreds of years; when it suddenly reappears, it is up to Lessa to rediscover the true abilities of dragons. Once you visit Pern, you’ll want to go back again and again.
Book 1 in the Dragonriders of Pern series.
After 14 years as a slave girl, Kale is free, because of a dragon's egg. Since she found it, the village elders have decided that she must present herself and the egg to the great wizards of the walled city of Vendela, where she expects to become a servant of Paladin, the earthly representative of Wulder, supreme being of Amara. Her journey is interrupted by ogres and along the way she discovers more dragon eggs. Two of her eggs hatch on the way and become her constant companions. To them, Kale is much more than just a slave girl–she is the last of the great Allerion dragon-keepers.
