A Seed in A Soil of Sorrow was an horrific way to spend my lunch hour!
Since I was a teenager, I’ve always had an interest in psychiatry, specifically regarding serial killers and cults, (both leaders and followers.) All of which brings us to the Viridian Chapter. Set on the site of crimes against humanity, the Chapter promises a life free of worry, but we all know how that usually turns out, don’t we?
I can’t say anything more because…spoilers, but I found myself captivated by this short tale. Of course, I’m mostly caught up with the psychology of the main character and what brought him there. Then, once we meet the man in charge, (because it’s almost ALWAYS a man, isn’t it?), I wanted to discover what his motivations were as well. There are no easy answers here, though, but I can say, I was stunned by the time the story was over!
What an entertaining way to spend my lunch hour! Highly recommended!
