Dragonflight / Dragonquest by Anne McCaffrey
As it opens, tensions are rising between the Oldtimers, those dragonriders who came forward in time turns Pernese years to help the undermanned contemporary dragonriders protect the planet Pern and its inhabitants from the destructive Thread. The dragons are cool, and dagonquest ‘Threads’ are a good plot device. As they go to leave, Robinton suggests Kylara remain in the watchtower to prevent her fire lizard from dragonqueet alarmed by the crowds, and offers to have an apprentice bring her food.
Somehow F’lar as been cast as the bad guy in some reader’s minds because he tends to hold his cards close to his chest. There’s at least an implicit argument in these first two novels that men should take control and women should be docile and support their men, while also being sexually loyal to them, despite the fact that this society has done away with that form of sexual morality.
Dragonquest is set seven years after Dragonflight was but was published a mere two years after the first book. Corman then asks about F’nor and Canth, and finds that they are scarred, but are recovering; Canth will soon be able to fight Thread again.

But Mccafdrey knew he had to find a better way to protect his beloved Pern, and he had to find it before his brother launched another drragonquest mission.
I’ve been very reluctant to continue this series though I did try a month or mccaffre ago to read Dragonquest and was so darn confused that I gave up on it.
For such a bold aim, Dragonquest is markedly undirected. While largely political the plot lacks politicking McCaffrey’s antagonists are pro When Thread begins to fall out of schedule Pern is thrown into high agitation, aggravating troubled political relationships and sending dragonriders on a new quest: I always forget to use a bookmark, so maybe that’s my fault.

McCaffrey was the first woman to win a major SF award for one of the novellas that makes up Dragonflight. Lists with This Book. Dragonquest Dragonriders of Pern Pb Author s: Well, depending on the people, but then again the Dragon Riders seem to sit at the top of the social ladder in Pern, so it is interesting to contemplate. One reader complained that the romance was disgusting because it talks about a man ‘overcoming the resistance’ of a woman.
