Dragonriders of Pern in Order, by Anne McCaffrey

Set in a fictional world called Pern, this science fantasy series revolves around the unique bond between humans and dragons as they combat a deadly threat known as Thread. Pern is a planet that faces periodic infestations of Thread, a destructive and insidious spore that falls from the sky. To counter this menace, the people of Pern have developed a symbiotic relationship with fire-breathing dragons. Riders bond with specific dragons, and together, they form the Dragonriders of Pern. The stories explore the lives of multiple characters, particularly the dragon riders, as they strive to protect Pern from Threadfall and other challenges. American-Irish author Anne McCaffrey wrote most of the books, then started working with her son, Todd.
