The sequel to ‘Nerra’s Flight’, this second instalment in the Dragonhall Chronicles short story series is set some years later. Children with magical abilities are still being captured and killed, and the authorities are still pursuing Nerra.
‘Nerra’s Run’ is darker and more suspenseful than the first. The author establishes a strong sense of foreboding that continues to build as the story develops. Older and still determined to defy those who want her captured and killed, Nerra remains a character whose bravery and determination are admirable, and with whom the reader can sympathise strongly. She is developed with additional depth in this story in ways which both increase the reader’s affection and support for her, and fill them with anxiety for her future.
The action in this short story moves at a steady pace, carrying the reader along as the tension rises.
Once again, Mirren Hogan has excelled in her storytelling craft.
This beautifully written story has been awarded a Silver Acorn.
