About the Author

Lori Lopez is the mad scientist of writing. She delights in taking Literary (as well as Poetic) License to conduct bizarre experiments with the fundamental nuts and bolts and D.N.A.A.A. (Do Not Alter, Amend, or Ameliorate) conventions of Literature. This author's abnormal brain is constantly sawing and splicing and sewing oddball inconsistencies, while brewing tubes of syllabillic bubbly broths, formulating preposterous plots, mixing batches of garbly mumbled metaphors, conjuring jars of frothsome notiony potions, and zapping to life a lurching legion of eclecticly antic eccentrically assembled characters. Tome One began in 1996 as a rather simple idea for a screenplay based on and written for Lori's sons. The concept has evolved into not only one trilogy of intricate tales, but a trilogy of trilogies. Further details about her oddness and strange otherworldly projects can be gleaned by visiting her website: www.trilllogicinnoventions.com - but beware the consequences . . .

`Dance of the Chupacabras' by Lori R. Lopez isn't the easiest-to-read book I've ever picked up. Honestly, it took me a little while to get "into" it. (I knew what a Chupacabra was because I saw that episode of `The X-Files', so I was good with that.) Once I got going though, I found this book is unique, like nothing I've ever read before. Funny? Yep. Filled with suspense? Yes. Nail-biting Are-They-Going-To-Make-It parts? You betcha. Make ya cry? Uh huh. How about laughing out loud? Most definitely!!!

Ms. Lopez has an obvious love of words - all kinds of words, all kinds of languages. You will learn new words because if the right one doesn't exist for what she's trying to say, well then, she's gonna make one up! The author doesn't just tell the story, she also talks directly to you. She talks to the characters. They answer her. Ok, I confess - I answered her a couple of times too... She writes prose, but then frequently blends in marvelous poetry so skillfully that you're reading rhymes in your head before you realize it.

The main story is about a pair of brothers unknowingly tasked to find a little girl who they don't know is missing, and in doing so will save the world as well. How are they supposed to find someone they don't know is missing you may ask? Good question, but I'm not going to tell you in this review. Now throw in the little issue of being lost themselves, and it's REALLY a problem! Both Mayan and Aztec gods, rulers and lore play major parts. You know the Mayan calendar that says the world is going to end 12/21/12? It's part of the story too.

That's just the tip of the iceberg, (or maybe the point of the cactus needle would be more appropriate for this book).

This novel was a difficult one for me to review. I had a hard time getting into it (I would have cut the prologue) but once I actually got into the story, it had me intrigued. I must also admit that I am not well acquainted with YA-geared horror and it took me some time to get accustomed to the colloquial prose. With that said, this novel is a bold, highly creative, and ambitious endeavor that comes together quite nicely. Ms. Lopez has a unique style well worth checking out, with a wonderful sense of humor that shines throughout the text.

* I received a review copy of this book from the author*
This is a great and fun book. It will hold your attention from beginning to end. Lori has such way of writing like no other. Each and every character in this book will catch your mind and imbed itself there for years to come. The words and descriptions of this book are written in a way that no one else but Lori could pull off. I love her no holds bar writing style every one of her books and stories never cease to amaze me.
If you love mythology, adventure and a bit of humor read this book you will not be disappointed.

Thank you so much Lori for just being you and letting your true self shine in your books!!!!

Dance of the Chupacabras by Lori R. Lopez is not an easy book to read. The author tells you right off the bat that she has no use for rules of writing nor will she be limited by them. There are all capitals used in the middle of sentences, creative word use not to even mention the words that are created and odd punctuation. Having said that I have to say that is this book it not only works, it works well.

A little slow in the beginning the book slowly drawing you into a complex web of creative storytelling. You are part of the story along with the characters. The author stops to talk to you and explain as we go along which gives you the feeling of sitting around the campfire listening to a master storyteller weave a tale.

The basic story involves twin brothers who must find a missing young woman. As inept as they are enduring, they traverse a complex world in search of the girl who no ones knows is missing. How they know is part of the mystery and suspense so I am not going to tell you that part.

Very uniquely written, dancing with fun and intrigue, this is a sumptuous story. Touching all your senses as you follow the twins on their adventure, this novel will not put you to sleep. If anything it is best to finish it in one sitting or you will find yourself unable to sleep thinking about it.

I giggled a lot while reading this story. Not something I do often.
