The LoopStranger Things meets World War Z in this heart racing conspiracy thriller as a lonely young woman teams up with a group of fellow outcasts to survive the night in a town overcome by a science experiment gone wrongTurner Falls is a small tourist town nestled in the hills of western Oregon, the kind of town you escape to for a vacation When an inexplicable outbreak rapidly develops, this idyllic town becomes the epicenter of an epidemic of violence as the teenaged children of several executives from the local biotech firm become ill and aggressively murderous Suddenly the town is on edge, and Lucy and her friends must do everything it takes just to fight through the night Oh wow, I was not ready for 2020 And I m not just talking about all of the craziness happening in the world today I wasn t ready for all of the amazing books that 2020 has given the horror community so far It makes meandexcited for all of the amazing books that will continue to come out this year Honestly, I wouldn t be surprised if my end of the year list of favorite books read in 2020 was mostly books released this year But right now I m focusing on Jeremy Robert Johnson s fan Oh wow, I was not ready for 2020 And I m not just talking about all of the craziness happening in the world today I wasn t ready for all of the amazing books that 2020 has given the horror community so far It makes meandexcited for all of the amazing books that will continue to come out this year Honestly, I wouldn t be surprised if my end of the year list of favorite books read in 2020 was mostly books released this year But right now I m focusing on Jeremy Robert Johnson s fantastic upcoming 2020 novel THE LOOP.I knew this book would be good I adore everything I ve read from Johnson I just had no idea that this book just might be my favorite of all the works I ve read from him thus far This book has some amazing characters, but right off the bat I m going to say that Johnson s protagonist, Lucy, is one of my favorite female characters in a long while Lucy is young, and flawed, and vulnerable, and absolutely badass Lucy makes you care so much about this story Lucy is a goddamn gem of a character, and I love her so much I also love Bucket and Brewer, but for different reasons, and if I m being honest, mostly because they have Lucy s back They truly care about her and would do anything for her Holy wow can Johnson write brilliant characters But what about the story, you ask The story The story is bonkers crazy and just a teensy bit too much like the world s current real life situation It s basically about biological warfare anyone hear any conspiracy theories about a virus leaked from a lab recently and a parasite that turns people into weapons It s about class, and money, and what money can get you, but also how money can make you a terrible soul sucking jerk who no longer cares about human lives It s also about being young and falling in love and being forced to accept that the world can be an awful place In a nutshell, this is a book that reaches out and smashes you straight in the feels and leaves you reeling Pandemic, epidemic, biological warfare all of these horrors come from the same place They come from greed and hubris In the end the details don t really matter It s the lives that matter, the people who fought against everything to survive Lucy and her friends fight hard in THE LOOP You are definitely going to want to read their story It s timely, and soul crushing, and full of food for thought In our current situation, Lucy and Bucket and Brewer seem evenreal and important than any other fictional characters This is a story I needed right now Johnson has definitely touched a nerve You know, if I didn t have to sleep, eat, or tend to the family during this stay at home order, I would have sat and read this one straight through This book is everything Review to come Mother Horror Blurb Cue some strange intro music like the eerie riffs from X

this binge worthy, genre mashup Best known for his bizarro horror style flavor, Jeremy R Johnson is an unexpected hero for the coming of age conspiracy thriller genre Wait, is that a genre, or did JRJ just invent it In any event, this book covers a lot of ground and offers something for everyone A strong, female protagonist named Lucy, witty hilarious sidekick besties, Brewer and Bucket, and a rocket fueled storyline about a biologically engineered virus leaked from a lab wreaking havoc in a rural, small town in the Pacific Northwest But wait That s not all Johnson showcases his talent for breathing authenticity into his characters through realistic dialog and meaningful relationships a caustic creation capable of melting even the hardest hearts I dare you not to feel your feelings This is a favorite book of 2020 for sure My thanks to Gallery Saga Press, Netgalley, and especially the author Jeremy Robert Johnson.I loved this book I had heard that this was going to be made into a

ignore everything around you and forget your name for a few hours IT S THAT GOOD.In the small town of Turner Falls, Oregon, we follow our main protagonist Lucy, who is a badass high school student, along with her friends Bucket and Brewer When a classmate suddenly goes crazy and attacks a teacher and then is subsequently killed, it shakes Lucy up and turns this quiet town on its head I don t want to sayabout the plot trust me it s better to go in blind.Several characters play a role, but Lucy is at the heart of the story She s a standout character and what makes this book so unique My favorite characters tend to be complicated, the perfect blend of delicate and strong, fierce and heartfelt, flawed but moral Lucy, Bucket, and Brewer, who are considered outsiders, are thick as thieves, and who take refuge in the local caves meet this description.Johnson is a gifted writer with a limitless imagination THE LOOP is the second book I ve read from him, and I continue to be blown away by his talent THE LOOP takes place in one night, which adds to that compulsive, grab the book by both hands and don t let go feeling I enjoyed every bit of the viscerally immersive chaos, carnage, and mayhem So if all of the above sounds like your brand of horror, then you know what to do A group of teens trying to survive in a town where a local biotech firm s science experiments have

muchgoing on than a Stranger Things and World War Z mashup Using that comparison does not do it justice with how great this book is I do see the connection small town, younger teens, conspiracies, and a government that effed up.The book has so many great things a strong protagonist, witty dialogue, a creepy mystery to be solved if you don t die, government conspiracies, life and death, tons of action, and a podcaster on the search for truth and justice Oh, and I basically gasped multiple times and cried Not only does Johnson serve you a gilded book on a platter, but he uses that book to break your heart in the best way possible, of course, because that is totally a thing I read this in two sittings only because I had to stop and go to sleep Before I knew it I was finished with the book and I just had to stare at the wall and gather my feelings and heart from the bottom of the floor This book was a JOURNEY and it was one I am so thankful for taking 5 stars ALL THE FIVE STARS Thank you Saga Press and Jeremy Robert Johnson for this ARC The Night Worms had a great time with this book party NightWormsInTheLoop Shit, dudeYou always look good to me She d never said anything like that before, but it was true, and he had to know that their mutual low key crush was part of what sustained their friendship And they were probably going to die soon anyway, so she figured she might as well put it out there Now give me your f king shirt Thanks to NetGalley and Gallery Books for sending me an ARC of The Loop in exchange for an honest review.This book bills itself as a heart

an ARC of The Loop in exchange for an honest review.This book bills itself as a heart racing conspiracy thriller as a lonely young woman teams up with a group of fellow outcasts to survive the night in a town overcome by a science experiment gone wrong That is a spot on plot description.This book also bills itself as Stranger Things meets World War Z There, I must respectfully disagree The Loop and Stranger Things both involve teens dealing with something otherworldly, but there is little similarity in tone And the oral history, reserved storytelling style of World War Z bears no resemblance to this tale.The writing here is raw, and a little bit over the top The pace is frenetic There s horror and gore, but there are also threads of raunchiness, even elements of a teen sex comedy It has a clever opening that sets the mood and allows for a quick data dump of backstory The main character, Lucy Henderson, is well developed, farso than any of the other characters And the book has a really strong ending.Rather than Stranger Things or World War Z, The Loop reminded me of the books of Scott Sigler and the cult classic movie Return of the Living Dead Both are compliments A fun, fast read Rating 8.5 10Thanks to the publisher and author for an advance reading copy of The Loop for review consideration This did not influence my thoughts or opinions on the novel.The Loop is a white

for review consideration This did not influence my thoughts or opinions on the novel.The Loop is a white knuckle, face bashing thrill ride from the mind behind Skullcrack City and Entropy in Bloom This is weird conspiracy thriller fiction to the max, and I m all in This was an absolute blast from beginning to end.I ve been kicking myself for a while now because I ve had Skullcrack City on my to do list but just haven t overcome the towering bookstack to crack it open When I saw JRJ had a new novel coming out this year, I made it a priority to refresh both NetGalley and Edelweiss on the daily until I saw The Loop come across When I received an approval notification within a day or so of requesting, I decided to jump right in and see what all the fuss was about.Needless to say, Johnson has the chops to write a story that is as engaging at the end as it is as at the beginning Even with work, COVID anxieties, etc., I plowed through this book rather quickly, mostly due to the fact that I had an insanely tight grip on my Kindle throughout.What begins as a podcast conspiracy rolls into a bloody massacre that leaves not a soul in Turner Falls to the wayside Lucy is the focal point of the story, so everything is seen through her eyes, but we are introduced to an array of characters throughout the seemingly short timeline from beginning to end Each of these additional characters plays a small but important role in helping Lucy crack the code, so to speak She is a very likeable character who has had a rough go of it in her short life, but she shows off a heck of a lotgrit as the story progresses than you would figure in the early onset.I feel like Stranger Things is becoming the new Game of Thrones comparison when drawing in the crowd, but I can definitely see a resemblance with the young cast, the overarching conspiracy, and the small town feel.While the plot itself gave me some vibes of Stephen King s Cell, Dean Koontz s Demon Seed, and George A Romero s The Crazies, Johnson has written a wholly original, albeit bat crazy, novel that I think will appeal to fans of the former mentioned and those who enjoy a good zombie body snatcher romp.All in all, if you haven t read any JRJ and like a bit of weird thriller fiction in your life, this is a pretty awesome starting point If you are already a fan of JRJ, pick this up with 0 hesitation
