The Loki Variation
By Sabrina James Riley
Sasha is woken up in the middle of the night by the screams of a little girl she doesn't know, and suddenly finds herself trying to protect the child against the end of the world.
Derek's vacation hadn't even started when his dog saves him from something he could have never imagined. Using what little resources he has, he struggles to stay alive in an unfamiliar town teeming with unspeakable horrors.
Sanjeev unknowingly helps to create the epidemic that threatens to annihilate the population, but his options have run out and he is forced to choose between his humanity or his scientific endeavors.
Strangers meet under apocalyptic circumstances, and have to rely on each other for survival. What begins as an unsteady, uncomfortable partnership to stay alive turns into a make-shift family who will do anything to save each other from the threat of the Loki Variation.
I am a huge fan of zombie/end of the world fiction and I totally enjoyed reading this book. The characters are from all types of situations and find themselves fighting to survive family and friends turned monsters. Sasha is a young woman who I find to be sensible and caring....she wants to save as many survivors as possible while keeping herself and Nora, the little girl she saved. Derek and his dog, Ripley, narrowly escaped the monsters and are now on their way to a military installation hoping to find help. As these strangers meet and more survivors are found, they all must work together to find a safe haven. This was a well written and very enjoyable tale filled with action, horror and thrills that drew me in from the first page and kept me on the edge of my seat until the very end. ~Booklover Sue
I've been writing stories for as long as I can remember; I still have a few stories I wrote in crayon on construction paper that I had stapled together to make a book that my mother saved for me.
Luckily, I've come a long way from crayons and construction paper, and have been able to type up stories almost as fast as my mind can create them.
I'm also an insanely avid reader, and along with all the award winning literature and classics on my shelf, I also have a penchant for the stories of other Indie authors...some of my all-time favorite books were self-published, and I believe that the ability to self-publish is one of the best things to happen to the world.
Can you imagine all the great stories we'd probably not have access to?
I live in Florida with my family, which includes but is not limited to: a pre-teen girl, a feisty just-on-the-brink-of-walking baby, and a 14 year old cattle dog who still thinks she is a puppy.
I'm always excited to hear from readers or other authors
