The beautiful planet Pern seemed a paradise to its new colonists - until unimaginable terror turned it into hell. Suddenly, deadly spores were falling like silver threads from the sky, devouring everything - and everyone - in their path. It began to look as if the colony, cut off from Earth and lacking the resources to combat the menace, was doomed.

Then, some of the colonists noticed that the small, dragon-like lizards that inhabited their new world were joining the fight against Thread, breathing fire on it and teleporting to safety. If only, they thought, the dragonets were big enough for a human to ride and intelligent enough to work as a team with a rider...

And so they set their most talented geneticist to work to create the creatures Pern so desperately needed - Dragons! Download and start listening now!

    " This is the beginning of the story about the dragons of Pern. "

    " Having recently finished 'The White Dragon', in which the current residents of Pern have just uncovered an area formerly settled in the distant past, this was a good follow-up. I enjoyed learning why and how the first settlers came to Pern, and to get the back-story filled in. I was disappointed in how many great characters got killed off willy-nilly, often so abruptly whacked and forgotten that it made my head spin. I feel like many of the characters set up to be major ones in subsequent books were not always very well-rounded, and for many of them I don't really care what becomes of them. I was mostly disappointed to learn, in coversation with other Dragonriders readers, that all the rest of the books I can look forward to reading take place from this time up to that of 'White Dragon'... but no further. The characters in the later times are ones I want to know more about, while these 'originals' I don't much care about... so I'm sorely disappointed. I may keep reading, but I'm actually not sure yet.

    " Read this a long time ago. All the dragon stories are good. Colorful imagery. Occasionally, the plot is predictable or simplistic. "
