Unlike Moreta a character who is much more famous and has a much bigger book written about her it is Nerilka who triumphes the most. She shows amazing courage and determination leaving her home and setting out to do what she can to help. She is not pretty, has no friends and essentially no family.

She encounters ridicule and scorn from those who know who she is and question her motives. Sep 12, Maddalenah rated it liked it Shelves: Nerilka's story was a bit disappointing, especially since Moreta was so amazing. And I don't understand putting together two stories that have nothing to do with one another.
The Coelura is not a Pern story, is completely unrelated scifi, and not even good scifi at that; the story is confusing, and as many other non-Pern stories by Anne McCaffrey, is slow and difficult to read. Sep 21, David Cozens rated it really liked it. Weaves in and out of Moreta's story.
The Coelura is an unrelated short story. Jul 17, Gemma Best rated it liked it. I enjoyed this book and really like the fact that Anne McCaffrey often tells the same story but from a different character viewpoint or world. She does this with the first story Nerilka's Story and it really helps to flesh the whole world out as well as giving us a different view on the World's events.
I rated this book three stars because, although I enjoyed it, it didn't really continue the story very much and also I couldn't connect with the characters as easily as I can do in a much longer n I enjoyed this book and really like the fact that Anne McCaffrey often tells the same story but from a different character viewpoint or world. I rated this book three stars because, although I enjoyed it, it didn't really continue the story very much and also I couldn't connect with the characters as easily as I can do in a much longer novel.
I loved the idea of the Coelura shaping as clothes around your body and reflecting your mood. This was a fun little sidestep book to the continuing Pern novels. Jun 12, Richard Wright rated it really liked it. Nerilka's story is good. Written in a different style from her usual as it's voiced by one of the characters who appear in "Moreta - weyrwoman of Pern".
It becomes an interesting and illuminating view of one person's adjustment to loss.
The Coelura is a very different story, and not connected with Pern. You cannot fault the breadth of imagination that has gone into this, nor the observations of the desperately formal society the story is mainly set in. The first story concerned a young woman escaping her home during a time of plague and was moderately enjoyable.
The second was science fiction, and tedious.

Donating straight back to the charity shop. Not too impressed, got bored and skipped most of it, story wasn't same as what I expected. Feb 07, Al added it. Apr 17, Teresa rated it liked it. Written as a first person narrative, this shorter novel of Pern adds something special to Moreta, Dragon Lady of Pern. Nerilka starts rather slow and more or less just a recount of events from Moreta; however, it gradually evolves more into its own novel with significant character development. The evolving relationship between Nerlika and Alessen Stands as the focus of the book, and this is where the book has its greatest impact.
Overal, the short length of the book combined with Macaffery's imp Written as a first person narrative, this shorter novel of Pern adds something special to Moreta, Dragon Lady of Pern. Overal, the short length of the book combined with Macaffery's impressive knack for making readers fall in love with her characters, makes this book worthy of a read.

Apr 06, Vickey Foggin rated it it was ok Shelves: This short story fleshes out the character of Nerilka from The Moreta novel. I read it immediately after Moreta so it seemed repetitive. Nerilka is a cool character but you don't really learn anything new. The second story is not related to Pern at all and is about semi-sentient cloth. It is exactly as captivating as it sounds: I'd pass on this one if you're reading them all.

For Lady Nerilka of Fort Hold, the tragedy was twofold, for with the death of her mother and her sister, her father's mistress took possession of the Hold. Angry and betrayed, Nerilka decided to escape and, as Pern seethed in turmoil, she began her perilous journey to Ruatha, Lord Alessan and an unknown destiny. When the Lady Caissa was told by her exalted sire to enter into an heir-contract with Cavernus Gustin she was appalled.
For although Gustin was genetically sound he was vain, pompous and intellectually inept. But Caissa's father was determined there should be a union -- he had his own privately plotted plans for such a match.

And a few hours later Caissa began to suspect what they were. On a private flight over the forbidden areas of the North, she was alerted by a distress signal -- and there discovered a stranger who said his name was Murell -- a man surrounded by coelura, the incredible rainbow creatures whose very brilliance threatened their extinction. It was the coelura her father wanted.
And Murell was determined to save them. A Study in Sable.
