DANGEROUS GROUND: Tina and Chase’s Story (Under Ground Book 5) by Alice Rachel. It truly doesn’t matter how many of these stories I read they just keep getting better and better and this one was definitely no different. From page one we are taken on a journey that comes alive before your eyes. The author knows how to write characters you really connect to and you can’t help but be drawn into their story. It’s well written and paced nicely never feeling rushed or lacking anything. Please do yourself a favor and read these in order it not only keeps everything clear it raises the enjoyment of the series. Tina and Chase’s story might be my favorite and you definitely don’t want to miss out on it. I’m giving this book a five star review and highly recommend it to everyone.

5 out of 5 stars

The story DANGEROUS GROUND: Tina and Chase’s Story (Under Ground Book 5) by Alice Rachel is a book I truly enjoyed reading. It is a story that hooked me in from the very beginning and I didn’t want to put it down until I had finished the last page. I just had to know how everything works out. The book has times when I was turning pages to find out what happens next in the storyline and to the characters. I loved reading about Chase and Tina. Chase is a man that is part of what is called the lower class and with that comes a lot of difficulties in his life. The biggest one is when the Sterilization Law goes into effect. He is concerned for himself, however, more so for his girlfriend Mariana. Chase is a character that I felt empathy for with the situations that he found himself in. The raw emotions that I felt when reading about him had me either angry or with tears in my eyes. He is someone what you would like to put your arms around and comfort. Tina starts out with one point of view on life and as the story progresses she begins to change and see things differently. The world that Chase and Tina live in is one where there is always prejudice and class stereotypes. I found myself angry at the cruel treatment that some received while others had life easy. Tina and Chase interact with other characters in the story and I enjoyed reading about them. The story does discuss and contain issues that may be triggers for some and the story would be recommended for a mature audience. I found this book to be wonderfully written that includes some amazing characters. Highly recommended.

I love this book! This is part of the Under Ground series. One of my favorite things about this series is how all the characters are connected one way or the other. We get to see them again in their own separate books. My other favorite thing is the characters. They really do make this series flow and there is such a mixture of personalities. This story takes place during a time when status or class is the way of things are. I highly recommend checking out this book!

Shifting Ground: A Short Story Collection by Alice Rachel – Review by Bobbi Wagner

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Shifting Ground: A Short Story Collection by Alice Rachel is a collection of short stories about the characters in her Underground series. Each of the stories are connected in one way or another. I love this because we get to see each character on their own and then they pop back up later in one of the other books. Each of the characters have a struggle of some type that makes them unacceptable to the public. The setting with these characters are such that there is a division of poor and rich. They are all connectable and take me on an emotional roller coaster ride that make me laugh and sometimes make me feel compassion for them. This is a must read book and I would suggest reading the previous books in this series. I highly recommend this book. Find out what happens to each of these 12 characters.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Shifting Ground: A Short Story Collection by Alice Rachel is a book of twelve romance stories that fit into the Under Ground series. I recommend reading the series in order and the author has listed how each of these short stories fit into the series of novels. The stories are great additions to the series and include the main and secondary characters. Everything is well written and even though the setting is dystopian there is hope in the stories. I will be looking for more from Alice Rachel in the future since I enjoy her storytelling and writing.

Shifting Ground, Under Ground Series by Alice Rachel – Review by Jenni Bishop

Shifting Ground: A Short Story CollectionShifting Ground: A Short Story Collection by Alice Rachel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Shifting Ground is the collection of short stories by Alice Rachel from her Under Ground series. The concept allows us a look at the characters from the series and the lives they lead. Alice writes with so much passion as we see the everyday struggles and horrible times.

There are twelve different stories that make up this anthology and the journey is not always happy. Some will pull on your heartstrings and others will make you angry and want to smack someone but there are those that will put smile on your face.

I love the fact that the proceeds of this book go to such a good cause, The Ally Coalition (an LGBT association helping LGBT+ youth in need)

Common Ground: Kayla and Taylor’s Story by Alice Rachel – Review by Jana Teppih

Common Ground: Kayla and Taylor's StoryCommon Ground: Kayla and Taylor’s Story by Alice Rachel
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Common Ground: Kayla and Taylor’s Story by Alice Rachel is part of her Underground series and you should really read them in an order. I know, it might be a bit confusing having had read the main first book and then reading the novella but in some ways it makes total sense! All these novellas/short stories that Alice is gracing us with give deeper insight into her dystopian world and helps you to understand some of the characters’ motivation and background better.
As the title says, this is the story of Kayla and Taylor who we know are leaders of the Resistance from reading the first book. I loved to learn about how they first met and how they built the trust between them and how experience of loss cemented their relationship further. Apart from Kayla and Taylor we learn more also about other characters we have come across the series …
This novella is another amazing example of the chilling world that the writer has created, it leaves us feeling disturbed especially considering the political environment we are living in! I was telling to a stranger today about the-forced-sterilization-of-lower-classes-law and permission-to-kill-the-homosexuals-at-sight law and she was blown away … is that the future awaiting for us? Keep writing Ms Rachel!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Common Ground: Kayla and Taylor’s Story by Alice Rachel is part of her Underground series. This is a series that can be read as a standalone but you will get to see characters from other books in this series in each story. One of the things I love most about this author is that she creates stories that are in different perspectives of the characters. I love how she can pull me into this underground world of different laws and where status makes a difference. Her characters are creative, connectable and true to life. They will take you on a roller coaster ride of various emotions from laughter to anger. In this installment of her Underground series is Kayla and Taylor’s story. Taylor and Kayla are neighbors that never expected to fall for each other. Taylor’s life is all that easy for him. His sister is about to get married. Kayla has not had the best of relationships in the past, she was determined to not fall in love with Taylor. She was done putting up with men’s stuff but when other forces step in will she have more to be concerned about then falling in love? Then you have Karen, Taylor’s sister who doesn’t want to get married to the man her father chose for her. Her problem is that she is more attracted to women then men. What will happen when her fiance is determined to marry her no matter what? There is three stories going on in one with this book. They are all linked together in one or another and each of their lives have other forces that could change them. These are some strong characters, they are feisty and they are not afraid to break rules. They bring attraction, passion and heat to this story. I loved that we get to see what their lives where life before we met them in other books. They will pull at your heart strings but you won’t want to put this story down. I couldn’t put this book down and read from beginning to end in one sitting. I highly recommend this book as I know you will want to see what Taylor and Kayla’s story is. You don’t want to miss this one!
