Dragonflight (1968) is the first novel written in the Dragonriders of Pern series, a fix-up of two previously published stories “Weyr Search” and “Dragonrider”. In chronological order it is one of the books set during the Ninth Pass, about 2500 years after landing.
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. . . .
“Read Dragonflight and you're confronted with McCaffrey the storyteller in her prime, staking a claim for being one of the influential fantasy and SF novelists of her generation – and doing it, remarkably, in the same novel” SFX
