    Anne McCaffrey

    eBook (Transworld Digital, July 31, 2012)
    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.
