I’m gonna keep it short and simple.

In Episode 2 the police are chatting Will up and trying to get to the bottom of the things that happened in the first episode.

Although this one wasn’t as fast-paced and strong as the first; the characters are realistically relevant. I’ve already thrown out there that Cruelty doesn’t strike fear in my heart, but I did like that we got to be in his mind and to see that he is not a rational being. You don’t want to be his plaything.

Mr. Lorn introduces us to some less than savory characters and a dog too.

I look forward to book 3.

About Edward Lorn

Edward Lorn is an American horror author presently residing in the southeast United States. He enjoys storytelling, reading, and writing biographies in the third person.

Once upon a time, during a session of show and tell, a seven-year-old Edward Lorn shared with his class that his baby brother had died over the weekend. His classmates, the teacher included, wept while he recounted the painful tragedy of having lost a sibling. Edward went home that day and found an irate mother waiting for him. Edward’s teacher had called to express her condolences. This was unfortunate, as Edward had never had a baby brother.

With advice given to her by a frustrated teacher, Edward’s mother made him start writing all of his lies down. The rest, as they say, is history.

Edward Lorn and his wife are raising two children, along with a handful of outside cats and a beagle named Dot. He remains a liar to this day. The only difference is, now he’s a useful one.

I have an incurable book addiction and I'm not ashamed to admit it. I will buy a book based on its cover alone. I love promoting authors. I am... the Ultimate Reader.

    When Edward Lorn generously gifted me Cruelty episodes after I liked the first one so much, I actually thought I’d be able to pace myself with them, but no…had to see what happens. Well, terrible things happen, cruelly terrible things, because it’s that kind of story. In this episode there are a lot of new characters introduced and Cruelty & Forgiveness don’t get as much face time as one might have liked, but presumably tis the way of the serials. It’s very good, almost as good as the first episode and leaves the reader wanting more. Lorn’s writing is as good as ever and I particularly enjoy his fore and afterwords. Be sure to read these in order. Recommended
