Nerilka's Story It was in Moreta's time -- a time of legend, of heroic valor, of terrible Threadfall and the Great Plague that devastated both Holders and Dragonfolk. 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. A gripping tale in Anne McCaffrey's world-famous Chronicles of Pern. The Coelura 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.… (plus d'informations)

Nerilka's Story

This is a parallel story to Moreta : Dragonlady of Pern; I read these two consecutively, and I think I benefitted from doing so.

In Moreta, the people of the planet have to deal with a pandemic outbreak of a mysterious disease, against which they have no immunity - the disease having been eradicated before migration to the northern continent.

Essentially, Nerilka's Story is part of the story from Moreta told from the point of view (unusually, in the first person) of a character who is only mentioned a few times in the larger book. Though dragons themselves barely feature, the story-telling is as rich as in other books about the dragons of Pern. It covers events that happen in two other (strategic) locations - Fort and Ruatha Holds - in the same time frame, and finishes the stories of those at Ruatha, which Moreta left open.

The series in general is well written (especially, I think, the first eight or ten books), with a fairly unique premise of telepathic dragons. It doesn't hurt, either, that there are so many strong female characters - especially with the first story being written as far back as 1967.

I'll give this 3 and a half stars ****

The Coelura

Lady Caissa is the body-heir to Baythan, the Minister Plenipotential to Demeathorn, whose secret mission may be about to be accomplished. As she investigates the mystery, Caissa is drawn into adventure.

I like the story, which is sic-fi rather than fantasy, but at just over 50 pages, it's a bit rushed. For a story-line based on emotions, there isn't enough time for emotions to develop, so I didn't find it completely credible - especially when the main character suddenly experienced intense emotions, because there was no build-up or reason for the intensity. This novella seems to be in the same series as Nimisha's Ship, which I haven't read; maybe reading both together would fill in some gaps.
I'll give this 2 and a half stars ***

Averaging out: 3 stars ( )

Nerilka's Story
This basically covers the same ground as Moreta but told from the point of view of one of the minor characters in that story.

It's the first one in the series with a first-person narrator, and I found it a bit clumsy at first. Whether that was McCaffrey having problems with the form or whether it was deliberate to show that Nerilka was unused to writing her own story rather than keeping the Hold's Records up-to-date I'm not sure.

Be that as it may it fleshes out the series a bit more, with a picture of what life is like in a Pernese Hold, which is interesting in itself without the tragic background.

The Coelura
Fascinating picture of a society I'd like to know much more about -- much more interesting than the actual story. ( )
