Cruelty: Episode Two

Cruelty: Episode Two - Edward Lorn The cast of characters grows in CRUELTY: EPISODE TWO, a transitional entry that picks up where events left off in the first installment. This episode serves primarily to provide context around the events that have been set in motion, and does little to further the primary story line directly - which is fine because the plot, as they say, is thickening.

Quite a bit to enjoy here in the way of characters - even the use of an odd accent adds a little fun flavor to the proceedings (a remarkable achievement in and of itself). A chapter written from a dog's point of view was delightful as well.

The only bit that fell flat for me here was the sequence that dealt with Cruelty itself, which struck me as strangely flat and matter-of-fact when it should have been disturbing.

All in all, a good read that left me looking forward to the next episode.
