The sequel to Edge Of Black is finally here, and ready for the most part. Things might start getting rather busy for me soon, so I thought I should post this while I have the chance. I'm still re-reading it, and about 50% of the way through. But if there's something I find that needs correction, I'll update this quickly from time to time.

Anyway, first off: like the previous issue, there is no sexual stuff in this series. A bit of 'Nudity' like the first one, but nothing specifically arousing. It still didn't quite fit or add into the tone of the entire series, so I didn't bother with anything. Not to mention... There is A LOT to All Pain Is Gone, to the point where I'm worried that the reader might get overwhelmed.

Due to this, there is going to be a lot of "Opened Questions" especially towards the end of it. They're not really "Questions Without An Answer" but more questions for the reader itself to answer. More or less: What do you think happened/happens at the end? It's not going to be a large cliffhanger or anything, so don't worry. But seriously, I want to know what you think will happen (AKA: Be warned of spoilers in the comments section)

I really don't want to say anything that will spoil stuff, so I'll leave it at that. Surprisingly, there's not really much to say about this act, it speaks for itself quite well. So, off to music credits: The subtitle is actually a song by Combichrist. I normally remain on the neutral side when it comes to their music. Never Surrender is catchy, and the stuff they did for DMC: Devil May Cry was actually quite good. But the rest was very... "Clubby." Not really a style of music that I listen to alot. However, I did manage to find All Pain Is Gone, and I instantly thought of Thais. Again, not spoiling anything, but the song fit this act almost perfectly. It's got that perfect balance of being energetic, yet it captures the suffering she went/goes through. Though the vocals are a bit... "Different", I wouldn't consider them harsh really.

Though this one isn't exactly mentioned, the music that inspired the Battle of Blisterbark was:

Buuuut turn down your speakers/volume a little.

Alright, I'm out. Happy Holidays everyone, and I'll see you sometime in January maybe.
