Dangerous Ground is part of the Under Ground series. It is the fifth book and should be read after books one through four. This book goes a little deeper into Tina and Chase’s story. The way Alice Rachel writes reminds me of a music composer. She starts with an introduction which is the same for all the books so far. The read is slow and steady, and comforting because it is familiar to the series. The main body is an “allegro” or a brisk walk. Tina and Chase’s story is like the allegro because Tina grew up in an affluent house. There was not a need for anything. Whereas Chase did not, he grew up in the poor community. When Tina and Chase get together they are going at the “allegro” pace. This means that the story is moving at a good pace and I could not wait to turn the page. All of the nitty gritty takes place here. This where the trigger points may happen: depression, suicidal thoughts, and alcoholism are talk about so if you are sensitive to these triggers you are aware that it is here where those take place. Then the “andante” or slow walking pace movement takes us to the end of the story. This is where the action slows down but still at a nice pace and you can see where Alice Rachel is going with this installment of the Under Ground Series.
Dangerous Ground: Tina And Chase’s Story by Alice Rachel, Underground Series
This was a tragic, romantic, realistic novel. I could not put this book down. I do recommend that the reader read the other books in the series since it can be confusing at times. So much happened in this novel with both Chase and Tina. At times I was cringing while reading because of the violence taking place but I could not put it down. The scenarios in this novel seem so realistic and I could see things like this possibly trying to happen. I loved both the main characters personalities. I found both to be strong and courageous in their own ways. Chase’s character was my favorite. I couldn’t believe how much heartache he went through at the start of the book. It would have broken me but somehow, he managed to just barely hang on. I look forward to reading more from this author.
Dangerous Ground is Book 5 in the Under Ground Series that should be read a part of the series for the full effect of this brilliant series. It’s Incredible fast paced, action packed captivating read from the first page. This author Alice Rachel continues to stun me by how incredible and more amazing these books continue to get. I didn’t think she could top the last ones but boy oh boy she did! It feels very real and has a depth to it that really makes you stop to think what life would be like if this ever happened.
This book is fast paced, action packed, but you never get lost within the story. The characters that are created and brought to us in this read are truly captivating, utterly brilliant, real and compelling. I absolutely loved reading Chase & Tina’s story you will be utterly consumed and compelled to read this book, and will love every single part of it!
Do not miss this highly recommend read, you will not be disappointed!

This is by far my favourite story from this series! I have enjoyed the other ones but I was completely absorbed and captivated by Chase and Tina’s story. I think it is really important that you take the authors advice because this book definitely is not a standalone so much has gone on in this series that builds up to this book and I think it is needed to fully understand what is going on. There is so much going on in this story that is very frightening feeling like reality. The author has done an amazing job with this story. She created a storyline I was consumed by and characters I absolutely adored! If you have read any of the books in this series previously then you will not be disappointed in this one. Dangerous Ground is a fantastic story that I HIGHLY recommend!
Dangerous Ground :Tina and Chase’s Story ( Under Ground Book 5) By Alice Rachel is the fifth in the Under Ground Series,let me just say I highly recommend reading this entire series!This author has done an amazing job drawing you in from the beginning and she keeps you on your toes till the end. I had to know what happens next, I had a hard time putting it down. This is Chase and Tina’s story.Chase is a part of the lower class and because of this it comes with difficulties in his life.When the sterilization Law goes into effect he’s not just concerned about himself but also his girlfriend Mariana. Chase had my emotions all over the place and at times I just felt bad for him..I truly enjoyed reading about both of these characters as well as the others. I highly recommend reading this book especially if you want to know what happens next? I can’t wait to read more from this Author.
Dangerous Ground: Tina and Chase’s Story by Alice Rachel, these stories of full imagination that you think when reading them that actually this could be reality someday.
Dangerous ground follows Tina and Chase’s story of the struggles they have in this world of segregation and rules. This is the kind of story has thought provoking parallels to the real world you live in and what would happen to society if just some of the rules applied, it would be horrendous but these characters live through these and seem to find happiness in the smallest places.
This series is well written and as the author said with in the blurb I would recommending reading these books in order, although the story its self can be read as a stand alone their are elements in each book which draws you deeper into this terrifying world and opens up each character to reveal more about themselves the more you read through series.
I really enjoy the writing and the depth of realism that these stories create, the true thought provoking topics have you questioning the reasons and laws that have been introduced. I recommend this series to anyone who love a well written story with a twist of the what ifs.

Dangerous Ground: Tina and Chase’s story by Alice Rachel is the fifth book in the Under Ground series. This series really must be in read in order to understand the story line.
As I have come to expect from this author this book hooked me in right from the start. I always live delving back into this world as the characters as interesting, the story line is interesting and each book just seems to get better and better. With each book I feel even more as if I am part of the world. The writing style just makes you feel like you are there with the characters experiencing that they do.
The story was just as good riveting as the rest of the series. I cannot wait to read the next book.

DANGEROUS GROUND: Tina and Chase’s Story (Under Ground Book 5) by Alice Rachel is a set in the future in a Dystopian society. This book should not be read without having read the series. I have read the series and this would have had me completely lost without having read the other books and novellas. I did like that the author put a quick chart at the beginning to help me get re-orientated with characters. The focuses on Tina, who is part of the upper class. She is great because as she learns more about her society she starts to act to help those who are being harmed. Chase is part of the lower class and trying to fight to help his girlfriend and others who are dealing with the struggles and acts being done to them. The characters are amazing. I just kept flipping through wanting to know what would happen next. There are some parts that are really tough to read because of the subject matter but was worth it to stay in the story. This is definitely not for an immature person but someone who can filter and process the story.
I have enjoyed this series and like that the characters are all part of each book but that each book focuses on certain characters who have a big part at that time. This gives lots of different perspectives. Pick up the series you won’t be disappointed.

Dangerous Ground is a part of the Underground Series written by Alice Rachel and should be read before Breaking Ground. This is Tina and Chases story. There is a trigger warning at the beginning of the story warning those who may not be able to handle certain situations. With that being said I thought it was a great story with intense emotions and characters. There are a few pages to help you get reacquainted with characters, places, etc. Dangerous Grounds story is told like all the others in the series with strong characters, strong emotions and strong storylines.

I know that the author clearly states in the blurb to not read this book as a standalone, but I know that some people don’t read those warnings seriously sometimes. So with the risk of sounding like a broken record, DO NOT READ THIS BOOK WITHOUT READING THE OTHER BOOKS IN THE SERIES IN THE RECCOMENDED READING ORDER! I can 100% promise you that you will be lost as all get out, and this is not one you want to miss. If you like the Handmaids Tale, dystopian novels, or movies that are scarily close to the reality that we are currently living in, this is the series for you to pick up now. Go one-click right now the whole thing because I can promise you that once you start you won’t be able to stop and will want to devour this entire series as fast as you can.
Alice Rachel really has the gift when it comes to writing with feeling. I always find myself thinking, often aloud, and feeling the characters feelings as if they were my own. Unfortunately, this series happens to touch very close to home. Underground is set in a society that is one we just don’t want to see for ourselves. Separated races, social classes, genders, and so much more. Laws and regulations that affect our bodies as women etc. Sounds a bit close to home doesn’t it though? Kind of like the current political atmosphere we are living in. Really makes you think. Dangerous Ground is the story of Tina and Chase and the way they deal with the difficulties they face every day. I am always more blown away with each book than I was with the last, a hard task to accomplish so I can’t wait to get my hands on the next in the series! Thanks for another great read Alice Rachel!
