I enjoyed that than Nerilka s Story 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 Not too impressed got bored and skipped most of it story wasn t same as what I expected Nerilka s story was a bit disappointing especially since Moreta was so amazingAnd I don t nderstand putting together two stories that have nothing to do with one anotherThe Coelura is not a Pern story is completely nrelated 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 Nelrika s story is a parallel story to the Moreta one in a novella Nelrika is a practical Lord Holder s daughter but her father does not realise how much she does to keep it going including collecting herbsWhen the plague starts she gets frustrated by her fat Fairly nexceptional 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 tedi.
