The book took a bit to arrive but was in good condition. Happy to get one of the more challenging Anne McCaffrey book to find.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Lady Caissa, heir to the Ambassador of the Federated Sentient Planets to the world Demeathorn, has had duty and loyalty drilled into her since she was a young girl. Her father expects her to follow his dictates unquestioningly, even though Caissa has long since passed her childhood and is now ready for her first marriage contract. For the first time, Caissa rebels against her father's wishes and refuses to marry the boorish Gustin, heir to the Cavernus fortune and a good political ally for her father. Caissa's father doesn't understand why she cannot just endure the year-long contract marriage, beget a child and be done with it, but Caissa's heart rebels at such a cold-blooded contract. Upset and unsure of what she will do, Caissa decides to take her cruiser for a spin and hopefully hunt off some of her frustration.
Before too long Caissa realizes that she foolishly forgot to check her cruiser's solar panels and that she will run out of power before she can return to the city. She intends to fly back as far as she can and then camp and wait for the sun's rise the next day when she picks up a weak distress signal coming from the forbidden zone. When she responds, she finds the most beautiful man she has ever seen. Murell doesn't trust her, but he is wounded and his antique flyer is beyond his repair skills. Despite some suspicion on both sides, they soon find that there is a strong, instantaneous attraction between them, but what kind of future can they have? Caissa dares to dream that somehow, someway they can be together for longer, but when Murell discovers who her father is, he leaves. For Murell knows that Caissa's father will do anything to capture one of the elusive, mythical coelura - the very creatures that he has sworn to protect...

I wish this book had been a full length novel -- with sequels!!! The book "Coelura" was so good,I couldn't put it down.I only wish that there had been more of it and that Anne McCaffrey had decided to make it into a series!

Written as a novella (a cross between a novel and a short-story) the biggest problem with this book is that it's too short. The Coelura is well written with a great plot, but I want to see more. Perhaps someday Anne will continue this story. Anne did eventually write more about this particular "universe" in "Nimisha's Ship", but set far into the future.

This indeed should have been a short story - I feel like I have been cheated to pay the price for a book 156 pages long, in 14 point type with every other page a poorly drawn picture. At first I thought its a children's book and I made a mistake in buying it, then the subject matter is not children's material. I purchased this book on my faith in Anne mcCafrey. I will not make that mistake again with any publisher/book.

This is one of the _weirdest_ books I've ever read. I'm a big McCaffrey fan, so it's absolute blasphemy to denounce it...suffice to say it could have been longer.

Excellent story and probably best as a seperate book as Nerika is of the Pern.
