Review by: L. I. Adams on Dec. 01, 2012 :
All I can say is WOW. Lori R. Lopez had my head spinning from the beginning to the end of this fantastic story. Her unusual use of words and phrases conjured images of hope, courage, despair, and so many more emotions all within the space of a few short sentences. The reader is taken on a roller-coaster ride as the lives of Meezly and company are thrust into an unnatural wind. This book is told from the perspectives of all the characters. Ms. Lopez describes each person and allows them to develop into loving and caring or hateful and despicable people as their natures demand. Each character is also rewarded or punished according to their greed and sins or to their repentant and virtuous behavior. I found myself wondering what other peril Meezly would find herself and hoping she had the internal fortitude to overcome the obstacles preventing her from reaching her goal. Ms. Lopez never ceases to amaze me with her style and unconventional way of writing. I know I am always in for a treat and some mind bending reading experiences when I read her books.

Lori R. Lopez writes this adventure with so heartfelt compassion that this is a book to love. There are so many characters that you get to know throughout this book that it is amazing that she is able to give each one a personality and background. I was brought to tears by so many of their memories and the sadness that they have been through it makes them so real that they seem to jump from the pages right into you mind. Reading this fabulous book is so much like watching a movie that you can get lost in the time that you are reading and before you know it the book is finished.
This book is such a great mix of horror, humor, emotion and suspense that it is a book for everyone of all ages, from young adult upward.
