#Horror Review: Honger 2 by Terry M. West (@TerryMWest)

Whereas the original Honger was a sad, violent tale, one with a solid backstory and a well-developed mythology, the sequel is more gleefully vindictive, with a thread of dark justice that moves it beyond the sorrow and regrets.

In Honger 2, Terry M. West passes the inhuman appetite to a new generation, a homeless junkie who turns out to be a pawn between the men of the first story.

Just as violent as the first story, this is a book that's full of bloodshed, cannibalism, and brutality. West never shies away from Chloe's hunger for human flesh, but deals with the entire experience of wanting, fearing, enjoying, and rationalizing the experience.

What makes this book even more engaging than the first is how her hunger brings her into contact with a pair of amateur snuff pornographers who see in her the perfect victim for their latest client's dark, perverse demands. It probably comes as no surprise that she doesn't play the victim well, and it make for a suitably glorious and grotesque finale.
