#WOTR21 #Zombies – Lost Undead, Stay Dead Book #2 by L.C. Mortimer AKA Sophie Stern

Book cover for Lost Undead (Stay Dead, #2) by L.C. Mortimer

Zombies never stay dead.

They made it to the island. They managed to find a way to escape the burning cruise ship where they’d been trapped, and now they’re facing a new problem.

The zombies didn’t go down with the ship.

They’re here.

They’re everywhere.

Winter and her friends need to find a new way to escape, a new way to keep fighting.

If only the dead would stay that way.

STAHP!!  Run and buy this awesome book if you are a zombie fan.  But actually wait, buy book 1 and then grab book 2.  Be ready to pre-order book 3 thought because this book leaves you wanting more!!!

The last book ended with Winter, Isaiah, and Greta landing on an island and praying it was safe.  This story picks up right where the last book ended. Our survivors are checking out the island when more survivors show up.  To say things aren’t peachy is an understatement.

Dude! Greta is a bad ass chick who people don’t even give enough credit too.  Winter is becoming quite a warrior as well.  Isaiah is another awesome member to the rag tag team.  They stick together and help each other when the other survivors start to make things difficult for trio.

To say this book is action packed is an understatement.  To say this book will keep it interesting is also an understatement.  I seriously cannot wait for more from the series.  The characters are growing more and more to be a family not just out of convenience but of actual compassion for each member.

I LOVE GRETA!! She is the perfect grandma and so many people underestimate her. The trio have finally decided that they need to get off this island, but they did not expect what happened next. Another lifeboat with survivors lands on their tiny island, which puts a kink in their plan. Something just isn’t right. Greta, Winter, and Isaiah all have a bad feeling. Next thing you know chaos erupts and they are scrambling to survive once again. Nothing can stay chaotic forever…everything will look better in the morning. Riiiight. Oh I want talk about what happened and about the really bad things and the badassery that Greta is….ooooohhhhhh how I want to tell you all about it, but I can’t! I refuse to give it all away. What I am saying is that there is so much going on in this story, I literally read it in one sitting, I was consumed by it! I am on pins and needles waiting to read the 3rd installment. I need to know what happens next!

#Review #WOTR21 Wild Undead (Stay Dead Book 1) by L.C. Mortimer

Wild Undead (Stay Dead Book 1) by [L.C. Mortimer]

Zombies never stay dead.

Winter Hawk is on day three of a five-day cruise when the zombie infection decides to make its appearance.

She’s seen her share of bad days, but nothing compares to the fact that the people around Winter are dying and coming back to life in droves.

Winter has to get off of the cruise ship and away from the infection, no matter what it takes. Armed with a first aid kit, a couple of water bottles, and a few unlikely companions, she embarks on a journey that will change everything.

If she can manage to survive.

WILD! This is a zombie book that you definitely want to read. This story sucks you in from the very start and holds tight right to the very end. It is consuming. Winter is sort of a loner, but with friends. Even though this is a quick read, her back story pulls at your heart strings. You see her relaxing and trying to have fun when all hell breaks loose. She starts hearing stories and then the unthinkable happens when she, and many others, witness a madman eating the bartender! She knows she needs to start preparing for the worst. There are others that are in the same boat as her (no pun intended, lol) and this is how she meets Greta and Isaiah. As they start the race for their lives, they form an unlikely alliance and embark on a journey of survival. This is absolutely a wild ride and stuck with me long after the book ended. I have a feeling that the trio are going to come upon some crazy obstacles, but where their story goes….I have no clue. I am on pins and needles for the next installment. L.C. Mortimer is a new author for me, but bravo because you have a new fan!

Review by Twinsie Angie

I received this book from Booksprout for an honest review.

ZOMBIE LOVE in full force!!  WHOOT WHOOT!!  So this book starts with Velvet and her precious buddy and only friend of the 10 year apocalypse, Dennis the cat.  LOL  Yes she has a cat friend.

Velvet has returned home to try and figure life out.  After traveling all over she hopes coming home will help her maybe find the answer to what happened??  All she finds is zombies and some strangers!!!  Velvet is not sure she should trust them.  Eshe and her crew are stunned to have been living here for a year and find a girl plus a CHILD in their town.  She worries she has been letting her guard down.

This story is a lot of world building in that we learn about the group and Velvet.  We are getting to know how the group functions and how Velvet has lived alone for so many years.  We see the new rag tag team forming a plan to save a child. Who in the world has a baby in this mess?  Who in the world leaves a child?  Is this a trap?  Who is setting up who?  So many questions but I loved the beginning of the series. I am kinda looking Winchester over like HEEEEY Big man!!!  Come hang with me *wiggles eyes*

L.C. Mortimer was raised on a small farm in Kansas, which sparked her interest in going off the grid. Learning how to can, garden, and become self-reliant were all important parts of her upbringing. After pursuing her degree in English Literature, Mortimer traveled the country with her husband, living in Hawaii, Maryland, and everywhere in between. When she’s not busy dreaming up her next story, Mortimer can be found stocking up on canned goods for the zombie apocalypse.

#WOTR21 – #Review – Outbreak: A Zombie Novel by L.C. Mortimer aka Sophie Stern

Outbreak: A Zombie Novel

Emily thought she could survive the apocalypse and save her sister from hordes of undead. She was wrong. By the time she found her sister, it was too late. All hope was shattered. Heartbroken and disillusioned, Emily returns home. There’s just one problem: her haven is no longer empty. Someone has moved in.

Neil was a leader long enough to know when to cut his losses. Surviving in the city was one major loss. He gathered his friends and hoofed it to the forest. He knew there would be abandoned farmhouses and plenty of land. The fewer inhabitants before the apocalypse struck, the fewer zombies to deal with after.

The house they find is incredible. It’s isolated, well stocked with food, and Neil even finds a few loaded guns. Soon it becomes obvious that the home isn’t as empty as they originally thought, however. When the owner returns, she demands that Neil and his friends move out. She seems to have no problem with the idea of tossing them out on their asses, but there’s a major problem.

A storm is coming, and it carries with it a greater threat than just zombies.

Zombies! Need I say more? This is a standalone novel that gives you a bit of everything. There are so many emotions that are part of this journey, and everyone has their own story with their own demons to fight. This story brought a rag tag group of travelers together and they almost made it work. You know that saying “When it rains, it pours”? Well, just when this group seems to catch a break, the sh!! hits the fan. The characters are very relatable. They are regular people like you and me who were trying to figure life out. Then, BAM! They are forced to survive. Each character’s back story will humble you. It’ll really make you wonder what would really happen and how would you handle it. Each had their vices and crazy as it may seem, they even had some happy times during the Z apocalypse. This story will make you laugh, will give you the warm and fuzzies, and some of it can be a bit gory. Best of all, you will NOT see what is coming and are definitely not ready for the end. I swear that when I finished this book, I had one of these moments that just made me sit there, like wow, that happened. I had a book hangover! I am still going over this in my head going, how could that have happened? Seriously, you need to read this!

#WOTR21 #AuthorSpotlight – Sophie Stern

Sophie Stern

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Sophie Stern

Sophie Stern writes paranormal and contemporary romance stories for her amazing readers across the globe. When she’s not busy writing, you can find her pole dancing, traveling, or reading zombie novels.

When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?

I think the first book in the series is always the most difficult for me since there’s so much world-building involved. I have to let my readers know the rules of the world, and I have to decide how the characters will interact within that setting! The other books fall into place more easily for me.

 What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?

Renee Rose! I have been reading her books for years and would love to get to meet her in real life one day.

If you could ask that author three questions about their writing, writing process, or books, what would they be?

What’s the most exciting thing about writing for you? What’s your go-to drink for while you’re writing? Do you have a favorite character that you’ve written?

 What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

When I went to my first book signing, I had someone come up to me and tell me they’d read Dragon Isle. That was my first series, and to have someone I didn’t know read it, enjoy it, and then tell me about it was wildly overwhelming, but in a good way!

What is your definition of success?

The cool thing about success is that it looks different for everyone. For me, being able to support my family on my writing is the greatest feeling!
