Jennifer Thomas reviews..... Lori. R. Lopez part 1

Jennifer Thomas is loved by many authors for her honest and wonderful reviews. In this guest blog she reviews some of the many novellas by the lovely Lori. R . Lopez.




                       Jar Baby

What a great story! Lori R. Lopez spins a great tale of the Jar Baby.

When a man sells the one thing he is supposed to protect to save the lives of his wife and unborn child he know that he has enabled another to unleash hell and the vengeance of the demon on the world. He must stop the actions that he has allowed to be set in to motion.

All Alice wants to do is check out this comic store that she heard about. The sells man is a little on the creepy side but little does she know that life is about to throw her into an adventure she would never dream of.

Wonderful word flow and outstanding character development.










This story takes you through so many emotions, fear, loss, love, hope and then it puts you right where we all end up, death. The suspense and horror leaves you wanting to read more and keeps the pages turning.

All Ziggy ever wanted to was to know the truth. Was he wanted as a child? Did his mother really care? But little did he know that he was going to be the begining of a horde that will chase him to his answers as he is devoured by not only himself but the plague that is nipping at the heels of mankind.

Adele never gave up looking once her son disappeared and even after loosing everything that was precious to her she knows in some why that as long as she has hope everything will fall into place. When her past comes back into her memory and she realizes that maybe hope is foolish the best of the worst happens.

I highly recommend this story to all horror, zombie or suspense fans!









Have you ever wondered what the personality of a bug may be like? Well after you read this wonderful fairy tail you will have to wonder no more. Follow Spider as he tries to find his way back home to his mother and learn the lessons of life, fear and friendship along with him.

Every step Spider takes seems to be looming with danger, but the things he learns and both the friends and foes he meets along the way have something for him. That is right this little fella learns from everyone he meets in his travels.

This is a great novel for children and adults alike. Some of the lessons with in will stay with you or your child for a long time to come. One example is, words can hurt and it is not always what you say but how you say it. 

Lori Lopez uses her beautiful poetic words to bring this to life with loveable characters and slightly scary foes. This is in no way a book that is will cause fear unless you just don't like bugs. But even people who don't like bugs, I think, should give it a chance because it is such a fun and imaginative book.














This story grabbed me because most people can relate. Everyone who is unhappy with themselves are looking for the next great thing to make us look better, feel better or just to give us the most amazing body ever. Well, unfortunately for our main character, Ned, he not only gets pulled into the hype of the next best thing, it really works!!!!

Ned is so tired of spending his life living and cowering away from all of he bigger meaner people in this great wide world. When his hero, and athlete, comes out with the super cereal that promises to give Ned the muscular body of his dreams how can he not try it? Not only is the cereal great tasting but it has a prize in the box. 

That little prize gives Ned the feeling of being a kid again. While happily wearing his his prize and full on cereal he sits and waits for it too work. But Ned has never had the best of luck. The news proclaims that the very cereal he just devoured was killing people and they don't know why?? All of Ned's dreams of being the big guy got a change and getting the girl are tosses in the trash bin as he is frantic and not yet ready to die.

What happens in the pages that come after will blow your mind!! You will have to read this story to find out what happens to Ned. Does he live? Does he find happiness? Most of all after you read this will you be able to eat cereal without this story popping in to your mind?








Once again Lori Lopez has used her words to take my imagination to its limits.

When I first started reading this novelette I was no where near prepared for the amazement and horror that lies within.
Dewayne's father had no idea of the monster he was creating with his hate and abuse. The wrath that Dewayne inflicted on not only his parents but on anyone he can get his claws on.

When Dewayne decides he is ready to take a bride the story takes a drastic change. This you will have to read for yourself.

This is the darkest story Lori has written and I love it.
I recommend this to all fans of horror or suspense.








In this story, once again Lori Lopez, gives you a world that you can't help but be pulled into. The characters in this story are so passionate and Magda, the main character is a strong willed woman who is able to face more than she should have ever had too.

Her husband killed himself and left her alone in the world with a son who was more monster than human. 

Magda has to find out about her life and her family in the worst of ways and just as happiness in within reach, well I don't want to be the spoiler but this is a wonderful story that everyone will enjoy.











This is an amazing and fast pace short story written in true Lori R. Lopez style that will leave you hanging on the edge of your seat until the last word.

What happens when the one and only place where you feel like you belong has to disband and the only friends you have in the great wide world are lost to you forever? 

Well in the case of Darius Exavier you end wondering the world not knowing where your head will rest or will your next meal will come from.

This story takes you through this young mans sad and lonesome existence as he is looking for a place in this world. The path Dariu takes and the things that he has the will to defeat will blow your mind.









This is such a fun mix of pottery and story put together as only Lori Lopez can. In this story you find a beautiful young girl who has been hurt so badly in the past that as her life gets more lonely her mind starts to break. 

You cannot help but feel the pain in this girl's heart as you follow her down the path of insanity.







I will be the first to admit, and I have many times, I am not a werewolf fan. This story changed that.believe me, this is not the usual werewolf tale.

Lori takes this age old monster and makes it her own in the best of ways.
Weather a werefan or not you will enjoy the new twist this storyteller has put to paper for our enjoyment. I don't want to give anything away but you will find a bit of love between these e -pages.

Part 2 review for part 2 of the story, yes, thats right this story now as a part 2 and it is just as amazing as the first part. Lori gave everyone who reads this book more. More love, more compassion, more suspense and yes, more werewolves!!! 

The suspense of the second part of this story gives everything to the first part. I don't want to give anything away in the book but I am telling everyone it is AWESOME and well worth the read.










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 but for Bash, all he can think is danger and gets his bazooka, yes bazooka. 

That is all this review will tell you about it, you will have to read to find out, but there is also the lady across the street. With all of the noise in the neighborhood Henna, that lady I mentioned, decides to investigate. 

Henna is a pistol packing lady with the intention to help her neighbor and keep her neighbor hood safe.

This story is awesome. Another Lori Lopez story that is a must read for all.
