Editorial Reviews

Tiffiny Sarradet
This is the first I've read of Lori's work and to be honest, I didn't want to take the time to write a review before devouring the next book!

Before we move on, credit must be given where it's due: Lori R. Lopez makes fewer grammatical mistakes than any other self-published author I have seen . . . The pace of this story was perfect. The descriptions were enough to give us mental images yet not so detailed as to cause any lag.
Jerry McKinney
The society has seemingly learned to deal with the zombie infestation. And Lori Lopez has used her sense of wordplay and wit to bring us into this brave new world. A band of misfit teens who have taken it upon themselves to protect the ambling dead. Does this matter when a loved one is threatened? Does this matter when a loved one is threatened? Find out Lori's answer and hold on to your poking stick!
Vix Kirkpatrick
Both sad, funny and horrific this little tale packs a potent punch.
From visions of Zombie Elvis hunters to a strange,horrifying future... but at least chocolate remains a priority!
Lori has such a blunt way of stating the horrors that you need to read the sentence twice to make sure you read it correctly, then the real horror hits you... not in the gore-fest but the possible truth . . . brilliant stuff!

    Some fantastic mental images!

    Both sad, funny and horrific this little tale packs a potent punch.
    From visions of Zombie Elvis hunters to a strange,horrifying future... but at least chocolate remains a priority!
    Lori has such a blunt way of stating the horrors that you need to read the sentence twice to make sure you read it correctly, then the real horror hits you... not in the gore-fest but the possible truth.
    again, Lori, manages to astound me with little phrases that no American should know! and excites me with a new descriptive word that I need to dash off and look up!
    brilliant stuff!

    Imaginative and Compassionate

    I liked HEARTBEAT. A plague has fallen on earth. Zombies are roaming the streets. Not everyone is affected. People are learning to live with their new reality. Kids are still kids - curious, adaptive, funny, cute, and very, very protective of their moms. This story will tug at your heartstrings while scaring your pants off.
