Oh, how much I loved this book. It was boarding epic! Lessa is a slave but rises up thanks to the Dragonmen of Weyr. It’s a wildly plotted book with dragons, Threads that fall from the sky killing all greenery, angry lords, time travelling. As you can see only 4 stars. Well, there is a story behind that. For one, too many characters with all their details. The side characters could have been glanced over and it would have helped the pace. Then there were the names, F’nor and F’lar. That was just one pair. They were too close together and sometime I had to pull out of the story to remind myself who was who.
That said, the action was fantastic. There wasn’t really any romance but the plot made up for that. I just could not stop reading about the queen dragon and trying to save the world from the threads. I am very much looking forward to the next book in the series.
