GHBT- The Loki Variation by Sabrina James Riley- Review

The Loki Variation 
By Sabrina James Riley
Genre- Horror/Zombies

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.

The Loki Variation by Sabrina James Riley is the story of a small group of survivors after an experiment, an experiment Sanjeev helped create, is leaked from the labs and spreads quickly across America. Our main characters are Sasha, Nora, Derek and Sanjeev, and while there are some other background characters, these four are where the story's at.

I am a huge zombie fan, and I feel there are not nearly enough out there to read. So when I saw the sign-ups go up for this, I was VERY excited to dive right in. The story was good and went at a good pace, and the action was very intense and well-written. I would have liked a little more gore, but that's just my personal taste.

This is a very good book and I would recommend it to those who enjoy zombie novels.

My Rating:

About the Author

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.
