Dragonflight - Anne McCaffrey

Every few hundred years the planet of Pern suffers from an astronomical blight. Nasty fiery stuff rains from the sky, laying waste to the civilisation.

That is, if the Dragonriders and their associates can't stop it by using their sentient huge flying lizard partners, who can handily teleport.

Keeping this animals and their pilots trained and housed costs money, and given the Threads have not fallen for a long time, no-one likes to donate this money anymore, and Dragon and Rider numbers are too low.

4 out of 5
