Rick is suffering. Experiencing his first change and feeling noodles of guilt over his betrayal of Jane. But what if she’s the only one who can save him?
At the end of Mercy Blade, I was honestly a little bit disappointed and frustrated. It ended on such a cliff hanger and I seriously wasn’t impressed. Plus, I couldn’t get up to get this short story or the next novel in the series because I had my very big, very cuddly dog on my lap… but then I got the chance to read this… and I was so very, very happy!
This short story luckily gave me all sorts of closure from the feeling of loss that I experienced at the end of Mercy Blade. Not only was it able to provide a little more information on one of Jane’s ruined relationships, but it also provided a hint as to her feelings towards Rick. The depth of them anyway. They’re kind of obvious throughout Mercy Blade, but it was nice to have that little bit of extra confirmation…
This is a great short story that gives a little extra closure from the previous novel. There are still so many questions and I still have this need to know more about what happens in the future. But overall, it did help to just give that extra piece of closure that I was otherwise missing. And now I will dig through my piles of books and start on Raven Cursed.
