The men who rode the dragons were a breed apart. Chosen when the dragons were first hatched, they became soulmates for life with the huge, magnificent beasts they controlled - the green, blue, brown and bronzes - beautiful - terrible - the only creatures who could defend the planet Pern from the blood-red star. But without the Queen, the dragons would become extinct. Only the gigantic, golden Queen could breed the new flights. And the Queen was fading . . . dying . . . leaving behind one last, huge, golden egg. Dragonflight is the first book in Anne McCaffrey's world-famous Chronicles of Pern and has been in print since its first publication in hardcover 30 years ago.

I loved these dragon books when I first read them when I was younger and once I had an iPad wanted nothing more than to read them again. I could still remember the names of the dragon riders and dragons and at last iBooks had them all! I will be reading everything that Anne McCaffrey wrote now, which will include books I have never read before as I love her style of writing. The joys and sadness of each book are so real that I can often end up in tears. What an author!
