I just finished Dragonflight over labor day weekend. It tells (primarily) the story of Lessa, who has telepathic abilities to speak with dragons, and is chosen to lead the dragonriders, just before the traditional enemy of the dragon’s, the Thread, begin to fall. It’s been on my list for a long time and after how much I enjoyed it, I wish I’d picked it up sooner. A great adventure and a fascinating world, there’s a bit of excess men-grabbing-females-by-the-shoulders-and-shaking-them, and the tension didn’t climax as well as I would have liked, but I look forward to reading (at least some of) the sequels.
