Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com - Jennifer Thomas
"This short story will be an eery reminder of all of the water warnings from around the globe. What happens when someone does drink the water? Well I will tell you know that it can turn into a nightmare!! You will learn just how scary it can be.
Imagine sitting in your home and Something is there with you, you are not sure what it is ... This story is awesome. Another Lori Lopez story that is a must read for all."
Amazon.com, Parents' Little Black Book - Karen Doering
"I'm not sure, after reading this short story by Lori R. Lopez, that I will ever be able to drink water again. At least not unless I boil it first, or better yet take it to a chem lab to be examined.
Our erstwhile protagonist, a man who should be doing his job correctly, has been taking a little less care with his duties than he should. In fact, he has been corrupted by the lure of a quick buck to not report his findings.
Another good short by Ms. Lopez that will keep you thinking."
Amazon.com - Vix Kirkpatrick
"Just what is in the water??
another brilliant tale from the warped, yet wonderful, mind of Ms Lopez.
The depth of the characters give you a real insight into their lives and thereby allows you to care for them!
However, that does not seem to be the main point of this story, merely a wonderus by product!
I chaotic scene one creepy night seen from differing perspectives!
Funny in parts, spooky in others... and just a bit eeek!"
