This review in this anthology is for Anna Hackett's "Desert Hunter", a short, short piece of 50+ pages that feels like the swan song of Ms. Hackett's wildly adventurous Galactic Gladiator series.
Bren and Mersi made their brief but memorable appearances as Ms. Hackett wrote Corsair's story and immediately, I was intrigued by a pair that seemed destined for each other but could never really get where they were meant to be.
"Desert Hunter", despite its short length, finally explains the reason for Bren's constant pushing away of Mersi, the woman he really wants, though it takes some kind of conflict to change that status quo. Mersi never wavers in the way she goes after Bren; the latter finally caves, of course, as a result of her persistence and a blend of circumstances that leave him nowhere else to go.
The HEA is guaranteed (though a full-length story of theirs would have been great) and all's well that ends well after both Bern and Mersi get put through the wringer. "Desert Hunter" is definitely an enjoyable read and an easy way to pass an afternoon getting lost in Ms. Hackett's well-shaped desert world.
