Losing Ground: A Stephen Richards Novella 1 (Under Ground #1.5) by Alice Rachel is the second story in the Under Ground series. This story is a continuation of Under Ground but in this story it is told by Stephen and his point of view of things that happened before we meet him in Under Ground. This story will help you understand Stephen’s character and why he feels the way he does. You will love how the author has given his point of view that will pull at your heart strings and make you feel what he is feeling. This story will make you feel a variety of things from anger, to sadness to compassion. Find out Stephen’s side of things!
Stephen Richards is the twin brother of Chi. Because Chi was not suppose to live, he has been hidden. Not only has he been hidden from the world but also the truth of what their parents really are, monsters. Stephen is determined to hide the truth about his family from his brother. He is afraid if he found out it would destroy him. He can’t stand his brother, he is weak, naive and just too gentle. Find out what happens when decisions are made about their future.
This is my second story by Alice Rachel and I know it won’t be the last, I can’t wait to see what will happen to Stephen and Chi. Alice loves spending time with her husband and guinea pigs. When she is not writing, she teaches French, reading and drawing. I love that this author has the proceeds from this book going to a great cause, anti-sexual violence association. This is a one sitting read that will leave you wanting more. This story will take you on a roller coaster ride of emotions that will leave you feeling what the heck and other times feeling the love of the characters. I highly recommend this story as I know you will find it to be a fast page turner like I did and you will lose yourself in this story.
