Dangerous Ground: Tina and Chase’s Story by Alice Rachel – Review by Michelle Austin

Dangerous Ground: Tina and Chase's StoryDangerous Ground: Tina and Chase’s Story by Alice Rachel
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Dangerous ground was a thrilling and emotional rollercoaster of a 5 star read. This is Tina and Chase’s story and I loved it. Once I started I didn’t want to stop.

When the sterilization law goes in effect things start to take a twist.
Chase and his family is what society deems as low class. There were some scenes that just broke my heart for Chase. Who are these people that think they can make these kind of choices for people no matter what class they are?

Tina witnesses some things that happen to Chase and is determined to make changes.
There is so much going on in this read, your head will be spinning. There is quite a bit of darkness also.

Alice Rachel does a great job with her writing you feel everything the characters do. My emotions were all over the place with the laws and regulations. I have to admit that some things were difficult for me to read because of some of the issues. Beware that there may be some scenes that can cause triggers for some. All of the secondary characters added a great element to the story. I had some I didn’t care for and others I loved.The ending has left me wanting more. You will be done before you know it. If you’re looking for a great series, I suggest 1-clicking and get reading.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Dangerous Ground by Alice Rachel a five-star read you need to devour. This is Tina and Chase’s story, the fifth story in the Under Ground series and what a story they have, and what a series, do yourself a favour and read them all as they build on each other and you get little details that will make it a much deeper read. The whole series has been great but this one just tugged that much harder on my heart strings. The whole set us of the class systems, the food shortage and way of life just seemed that much realer in this one, I just seemed to absorb this book so much better.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

DANGEROUS GROUND: Tina and Chase’s Story (Under Ground Book 5) by Alice Rachel is a heartbreaking and sad read. There is so much pain and tragedy, hopelessness and despair in this story that will have your emotions running wild and lots and lots of heart sobbing tears. Even though it is a heavy hearted story, there are small moments where there is love and hope. Some characters you will love, others not so much, I would even go as far as saying I hated them and what they stood for. It is a well written story and all I can say is, what an emotional journey it was to go through and get caught up in, everything our main characters, Chase and Tina go through.

By: Alice Rachel
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.

Under Ground (Under Ground #1) by Alice Rachel -Review by Sheri Schrader

Under Ground (Under Ground #1)Under Ground by Alice Rachel
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Under Ground by Alice Rachel is the first book in the Under Ground series. This is a cool dystopian book. The story is about Thia, a seventeen-year-old girl, promised in marriage to William. He is a cold and self-centered young man. Society is very social class based and controlled by men. Everything in life is controlled. Families are told how many children they can have, food is rationed as well as supplies. Marriage is a bargaining to hopefully improve the lives of the bride’s family.

The characters are interesting and well written. I really enjoyed the storyline and its development. I felt so bad for Thia and the decisions she is having to make. The situation of people is sad but relatable. When Chi is introduced to her life and she learns more about the world she lives in I was saddened by how sheltered people are in this society. As with many novels of this type, there are similarities to our current world that make the story more believable. I am going to be looking for more in this series and recommend it to anyone who likes an alt-reality story.

Terrence: A Short Story (UNDER GROUND #0.9) by Alice Rachel – Review by Jenni Bishop

Terrence: A Short Story (UNDER GROUND #0.9)Terrence: A Short Story by Alice Rachel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Terrence: A Short Story is a story that is part of the Under Ground Series by Alice Rachel. Alice touches on a subject that is still taboo in a lot of places but is becoming more accepted. We can live in hope that it will one day be fully accepted.

Terrence Young has always known he is gay. He has constantly lived in fear for what he has no choice over. He has always been treated like a second class citizen by his father and his sister because they believe that he chose to be gay and is only doing it just to make their life more difficult. The government has passed an act called the Deviance Act which means anyone found to be gay could be put to death. When Terrence meets Chase Martinez the attraction is instantaneous and he decides he is sick of living in fear.

It is a sad story and I hate seeing that anyone has to live in fear for who they are and to read about Terrence and how he has had to live and what he has suffered in his life makes me so angry. Alice has done a good job with this subject and this sad story.

Under Ground (Under Ground #1) by Alice Rachel – Review by Jana Teppih

Under Ground (Under Ground #1)Under Ground by Alice Rachel
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When the darkness meets the light, in fear it shall flee.
Not all is what is seems, open your eyes and you will see.
When the chains break apart, the enslaved shall be free.
When the world has changed, a new dawn it will be.
Under Ground is the first book in Alice Rachel’s dystopian series called ‘Under Ground’. It is meant for Young Adults but I don’t see anything wrong with also more mature audience reading it (I am no longer a spring chicken myself). I love dystopian genre and especially when they are complex and the storyline can go off in tangents. Alice Rachel’s series will join Suzanne Collins and Veronica Roth and Alan Moore and James Dashner on my Kindle!
I think that her book is very relevant in the world we are living in right now, considering what changes are happening around us – Alice Rachel’s world is a total patriarchal society where women have no rights, they outnumber the men so the men that the right to accept and reject women. The status is all that matters! Obviously, as in the real world, there is a counter power/movement to it all, it is called Under Ground and they are a group of rebels looking for starting a revolution!
The rules and regulations of the world seem too real at times; you question at times if it really is fiction that you are reading … I loved how the writer was able to combine action with steamy romance and heart breaking family moments. I am looking forward to continue my journey towards equality and freedom with Thia and Chi while the juggle their personal relationship. I am also looking forward to finding out more about the other characters I met in this first book!
