Review for The Grove:

 The Grove

Series: The Grove Issue #1

Author: co-written by Robert Rumery & Matt Nelson

Genre:  comic book

Length: 20 pages

Publisher:  What The Flux comics Publishing

Blurb:   Governments across the world engaged in illicit human and animal genetic manipulation that was less then scrupulous, and as a result global riots occurred. Using the riots as a smokescreen for their own agenda, terrorists partnered up with social activists unknowingly. Realizing their window of opportunity would be small, the terrorists blamed these illicit activities upon the United States, and a nuclear bomb was smuggled in and detonated upon American soil; Florida. The affects were immediate as several other bombs were detonated across the globe, laying waste to much of the global population. Those that managed to survive were mutated either into monstrosities beyond normal reckoning, or mutated into a hybrid animalistic humanoid. In the shadows of this event, several of the hybrids came together to pave their own way in this new world that was pushed beyond the brink of madness.

The current year is 2042, and the struggle continues…

The Grove Issue #1

Reviewer:  Ellie Mack

Review:  When I was a kid, I used to sneak into my brothers room to read their comic books.  They had all the greats – Captain America, the Fantastic four, The Hulk, etc.  I remember getting caught, comic in hand with the Silver Surfer.  They were furious that I was in their room and looking at their comics.

My parents bought me Archie, and Josie and the Pussycats – but I wanted The Avengers. Eventually I managed to buy some of my own.

With a long time love of comic books – The Grove was a delight to read.  It gave me a sense of nostalgia while at the same time a whole new experience. I loved the soft tones of the illustrations against the harsh world the characters are trying to survive.  This isn’t like the comic books of my youth, nor is it like the graphic novels I enjoy reading.  My only complaint??  I want more!  Laced with suspense and intrigue – I’ve got to know more! You can’t leave me hanging like this.  NOOOOOOOOOO!

Soul Redemption by Miranda Shanklin

4.0 out of 5 stars The story picks up where the first book left off …, March 29, 2016
This review is from: Soul Redemption (Soul Series Book 2) (Volume 2) (Paperback)
The story picks up where the first book left off and continues with exciting trials.
The main characters are a tight group, battling a world that they were recently introduced to where it seems everyone is against them. Following them on their journey is at times a roller coaster ride of thrills and chills. The author has a refreshing, clear voice that allows you to see right into the character’s world. There were times I cheered for the main characters and times that I wanted to wring their necks. BRAVO for the second in series keeping your attention!

4.0 out of 5 stars An Unforgettable Love story, March 29, 2016
This review is from: An Unforgivable Love Story (Kindle Edition)
B.L. Berry kept my attention to the end of the story. Not your typical love story or romance, but certainly interesting. Ms Berry draws you in with her great characters and the feels . . oh my the feels. I was a little disappointed in the twist but still a gripping story.
Well done MS. Berry.

Living Forward: A Proven Plan to Stop Drifting and Get the Life Yo Want
by Michael Hyatt & Daniel Harkavy
on March 29, 2016
This was just what I needed!
After losing my way in life, and putting myself on the back burner, this was a guiding compass to find my way out of an ocean of unfulfillment. Asking pointed questions that force you to examine why you are where you are. Thank you Mr. Hyatt and Mr. Harvaky!

  1. Heya are using WordPress for your site platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create my own. Do you need any html coding knowledge to make your own blog? Any help would be really appreciated!

    • Hello! Yes I am using WordPress; they have an excellent tutorial system. It’s easy to learn and much easier than blogger. I don’t have one bit of html coding knowledge – most of the things are already coded via the wordpress blog system. It’s really a great system. My site is free – eventually I will change it over to my author page but until then I will use the free one.
