Publisher's Summary

To the nobles who live in Benden Weyr, Lessa is nothing but a ragged kitchen girl. For most of her life, she has survived by serving those who betrayed her father and took over his lands. Now the time has come for Lessa to shed her disguise and take back her stolen birthright.

But everything changes when she meets a queen dragon. The bond they share will be deep and last forever. It will protect them when, for the first time in centuries, Lessa's world is threatened by Thread, an evil substance that falls like rain and destroys everything it touches.

Dragons and their Riders once protected the planet from Thread, but there are very few of them left these days. Now brave Lessa must risk her life, and the life of her beloved dragon, to save her beautiful world....

Skip this and go for Unabridged

this abridged version is read too fast and cuts out too much too keep up, I also found the readers voice to be annoying. The unabridged versions are waay better and totally worth it.

Does follow the book!

I was listening to the audio, it wasn’t making sense. So I downloaded the book from the library… And the sentences she is saying do not match the print. It’s like sentences have been skipped over. At least now I know why I am not understanding the story. What a waste of a purchase! How do I get my money back?

fast and abridged

The narrator spoke faster than was comfortable, she sounded rushed the entire time, like she had too much coffee or something. I read this book a long time ago, but even though it's been a while, the were sections and dialogue cut out, which really rubbed me the wrong way.

Cliff Notes

This isn't even the full book. It cuts out more than half the story and details. The narration is choppy and rushed. All in all. I would not recommend this specific production of this amazing story to anyone. Ever.

Story is abridged

Didn’t realize this was going to be abridged. I haven’t read it this story for many years but I could tell that a lot of parts were missing. Made it frustrating to listen to.
