After the tumultous occurrences of Mercy Blade, Jane and Bruiser once again unite for a job. And a little dancing.


I have some seriously mixed feelings about Bruiser and Jane ending up together. Mostly, I think that I don’t want it to happen. I have too much of an attachment to Rick. But, there is this great chemistry between them. And reading short stories like Dance Master which tell things from Bruiser’s point of view… then I start to feel a little more inclined towards their eventual relationship. I still prefer Rick, but that may change as the series evolves…

Jane’s love of dancing helps to give her a slightly more vulnerable aspect to her personality. Something that is fun and not all about killing. Even in the middle of this short story, when she is hunting down a rogue, there is still the time to dance. The fact that it also involves a bit of a romantic / seductive moment with Bruiser just ties in everything quite nicely.

Honestly, there isn’t anything ground shaking that occurs in this short story. Rather, it just sets the scene for the continuation of the flirtation between Bruiser and Jane. Or at least, that’s how I’m reading this short story at the moment… I need to actually read Raven Cursed first and see if my hunch is correct. I’m pretty sure that Jane and Bruiser are going to get together soon though…
