Monsters Unmasked

1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star Adult
It should be easy to tell who the monsters are in the middle of a global zombie pandemic. The blank-eyed swarms of animated corpses who want to gnaw on your flesh are the obvious choice. The reality, though, is it’s not always that simple. I learned that less than a week after the outbreak started, and it was like getting hit in the head. In this case, literally. More

About Lori Whitwam

Lori spent her early years reading books in a tree in northern West Virginia. The 1980s and ‘90s found her and her husband moving around the Midwest, mainly because it was easier to move than clean the apartment. She currently lives in a northwestern suburb of the Twin Cities for reasons that escape her, but were probably good ones at the time.

Since arriving in Minnesota in 1996, she has worked in public libraries, written advertising copy for wastewater treatment equipment, and managed a holistic veterinary clinic. Her dogs are a big part of her life, and she has served or held offices in Golden Retriever and Great Pyrenees rescues, a humane society, a county kennel club, and her own chapter of Therapy Dogs International. She has been a columnist and feature writer for auto racing and pet publications, and won the Dog Writers Association of America’s Maxwell Award for a series of humor essays on her blog, Fermented Fur (www.fermentedfur.com).

Parents of a grown son, Lori and her husband were high school sweethearts, and he manages to love her in spite of herself. Some of his duties include making sure she always has fresh coffee and safe tires, trying to teach her to use coupons, and convincing the state police to spring her from house arrest in her hotel room in time for a very important concert. That last one only happened once – so far – but she still really, really appreciates it. Her debut novel, a romance titled Make or Break, is now available on Amazon, B&N, and other e-retailers. She is at work on her next project. For more information, please visit her website at www.loriwhitwam.com.

When I first started reading Monsters Unmasked, I was expecting it to be just another zombie melodrama. Yes, I enjoy zombies and the like but this story was different, not at all what I expected. From the first page I was hooked on Whitman's tale about Ellen, her betrayal by someone she knew and a view into pandemic life that never in my wildest nightmares would occur to me. Still the strong, determined heroine didn't give up, she stayed true to herself and through her story I was reminded of the best in human nature.

Monsters Unmasked is amazing! A very different zombie story--instead of showing simply blood, guts and humans screaming--It gave a very human side to a zombie pandemic. The events, effects and what life would be like afterwards. From the very first paragraph, I was hooked and I didn't put it down until the end.
Lori Whitwam gave EVERY character a life, voice and story of their own. If you are looking for a great zombie/human story--this is the book for you!!
