This is a quick read full of detailed illustrations (love!) that gives a great intro to what the Infinite Vampire series will probably be like. I loved that the journal was handwritten (sort of) and read just like the diary it was supposed to be, while still introducing the story!
Zombies & Vampires. I love zombies. This story was very well written. I enjoyed the journel. I think the book series is gonna be great. I am looking forward to it. M. Lorrox took me on a nice journey. Thank you.
it was well written took me a little to get into it as I do not like zombie books and I only like reading romance and vampire but once you start reading it keeps your interest and the drawings are goof
I like the fact you don't know what she is till nearer the end. It starts out like she's a normal teen with the normal troubles and hanging out with friends. I can't wait to find out how it all turns out .
I received an audiobook of this from the author in exchange for an honest review. It is the first I've read by this author, and in this series, so I was a bit confused at first. I didn't know who any of the characters were or what was going on. As it was written in the style of a teenage girl's journal, the writing was a little all over the place. Once I got used to the style and the character of Sophia, I actually enjoyed it a great deal. I'm definitely interested in checking out the rest of the series!
Okay, I'll admit, I have never once thought that someone could make a book about Vampires surviving through the Zombie apocalypse. To me it always seemed like too much supernatural in one book. But HOLY CRAP, Mr. Lorrox has done it and he did it well!
For those that know me, and for those that don't, Zombies and Vampires are like totally my thing. My drug. Anything Zombie or Vampire and I am all over it like white on rice. But again, they have always been separate. I couldn't exactly figure out how they could go together. But Mr. Lorrox is such a talented author that he managed to combine the two and make it absolutely incredible!
Sophia's Journal is a young Vampire's account of how the Zombie apocalypse started and how she began her journey to survival. Of course, it ends at kind of a cliff hanger (at least one that makes you want to keep reading so that you can figure out what the hell happens next), not that I really expected any thing different as this is sort of a prequel to the series, and I can't wait to read the next book.
As far as prequels go, this one definitely hooked me from page one. Not only does it give a new perspective on Vampires, it also brings together Vampires and Zombies into an amazing story line that I just can't seem to get enough of. Definitely 5 out of 5 stars for me! I'd rate it more if it were possible! Nicely done!
Mr. M. Lorrox is truly a great author. When I started this book I was extremely impressed. It was one of the best books I've every read. The amount of details were just extraordinary. He did a great job writing this!
The question of how this generation would handle a real crisis is one that I think about, may be too often. Seems that our crises have been less acute than those wars and famines that the baby boomer's parents and grand parents had to live through. Being about vampires and zombies automatically triggered the "metaphor detector" within me. Is M. Lorrox going to make statements about today's society in crisis in the Infinite Vampire series? We will have to wait to find out. If there are such societal metaphors in the Infinite Vampire Series, they are not reveled in Sophia's Journal. Instead we are introduced into the background of the book series through the eyes of one of its teen aged characters.
In the short handwritten diary, Sophia - a young girl vampire - deals with a zombie crisis as one teenage individual must - with survival as her main objective. She approaches the crisis with a clear and cool-headed approach. While doing so, we get a glimpse into a skilled, analytical, and very likable person (who also keeps a well written, neat and compelling diary). By the end of this short diary, we want to spend more time with Sophia, which I suppose, is a good place to be as the book series begins. Whether Lorrox uses the book series as a platform for deeper meaning through vampire and zombie metaphor, or the book series is going to be a more simple action/adventure ride, it is concisely set up well through Sophia's Diary.
As a vampire fan, I was happy to read this digital, short novella which the Author offers for free to his fans. It's part of the Infinite Vampire series. It's written as a journal of 18 year-old vampire Sophia Lorraine, and I mean literally handwritten -- you won't find any typed text inside. What you will find, along with the handwritten journal entries, are Sophia's drawings to help tell her story. Her journal entries are detailed and humorous as we read that the West Coast of the U.S. is being overrun with zombies. Her entries become a story of survival. Will she survive? You'll have to read to find out. It was a very quick read. I enjoyed Sophia's story and will be adding the remaining books of the series to my To Be Read list.
There is nothing like a prequel to an amazing series. Sophia's Journal takes us on Sophia's journey. A young vampire,surviving alone in an apocalypse like zombie outbreak. Everyone she cares about,parents and her mentor are gone. She must use her wits and everything Lo has taught her, to survive. Just because she is a vampire, doesn't mean she is invincible. She heads off to find more of her kind along with fellow survivors. Lorrox sets us up in this Journal for the series coming up,with awesome expectations. This isn't your normal run of the Mill book. All this was originally handwritten, with amazing illustrations,to give it the journalistic realism feel to it.Thanks Lorrox for the digital copy I received from you of this awesome book.
This was a really fun prequel to the Infinite Vampire series! I was happy to get an exclusive copy since I'm a fan of the author. I loved Sophia's wit and heart as she recounted her journey across the country, through one challenge after another. The drawings were also a highlight for me, and my favorite was the one of the tents in the park that reminded Sophia of presents under the tree. Setting the beginning of the story before Christmas makes it even more striking. I hope M. Lorrox writes more novellas like this one to accompany his series.
A very quick read. I have read all the Infinite Vampire Books, and I’m glad a had the chance to listen to this audiobook. I was pleased with how the voice actor read this story. I highly recommend this book.
I loved how the story was told from her eyes, her thoughts, her drawings (and those were a added bonus). I tried to put myself in her shoes and could not imagine being so calm and just go do this, then this and this to survive. I would be absolutely flipping out. Time to make my zombie survival plan and kit! CAN NOT WAIT!!!! For the new book.
Don't care for books about Zombie's but thought I'd give this one a try. Was very surprised that it held my attention. Major plus was when I found out that Sophia was a Vampire. Looking forward to reading the Infinite Vampire series. Thank you so much M!!
