Nerilka's Story is not my favourite of the Pern series, but nevertheless it is good. Nerilka is a fiesty heroine who has a plague and the takeover by a new wife of her father immediately following the death of Nerika's own mother. The heroine subsequently has many ups and downs. All in all, a good Anne McCaffrey.
The Coelura I read many years ago. A story of a high lady who is an intelligent heroine, and fabulous creatures who spin fantastic garments. There is family and political type intrigue, but the coelura creatures are what I remembered from reading the print book many years ago. It's well worth returning to on Kindle.

Nerilka's Story - A view of the same storey from a different point of view... Let me make this absolutely clear; if you haven't read Moreta - Dragon Lady of Pern, go and do so before ready this one as you will get much more out of the experience.

Anne McCaffrey's books generally start with a healthy review of the storey so far - something a churlish person could object too if it weren't for all the wonder that follows it - but in this instance only the entire preceding book will do!

Although some parts of this book are complete echoes of the preceding one you soon learn pounce on those moments even more gripped in the words to draw out the alternate perspective which brings clarity to some aspects previously left questioning.

This revisiting is however seamlessly blended with Nerilka's own storey elements making the book as a whole well worth the experience. There are a couple of parts you can even almost hear Anne saying to the reader, "we covered this gap, it doesn't need retelling" nor should they have been from Nerilka's perspective.

In short, read them both, you won't be sorry...
