There is a lot in this urban fantasy for fans looking for an exciting and delightful read. What pulled me in was the compelling cast of characters. From the very beginning, the reader already gets the feeling that the characters are well imagined. I also enjoyed the originality in the plot and the setting is a place readers would really want a peek at--beautifully constructed, and rendered vivid with detailed descriptions. Roxanne Bland has a way of holding the reader's attention by weaving scenes that are emotionally charged and action-packed, focusing on a plot-driven conflict that is irresistible. The Underground features the finest writing, punctuated by lovely, insightful passages and descriptions. The novel is well-structured to have the reader turning pages. There are many instances where a reader expects a denouement, but the author introduces yet another twist that invites them to turn to the next page. This book was exciting and immensely enjoyable.
For an amazing blend of urban dark fantasy, paranormal romance and science fiction with a healthy dose of the erotic thrown in, The Underground by Roxanne Bland is the perfect book. Characters are wonderfully depicted in all their differences, and the action keeps you turning the pages, anxious to see what can possibly happen next. Bland uses her tremendous imagination to take what could be a run of the mill paranormal story to a whole different level with delightful results. Great story! I loved every page and hope to see more of this group that seems to rival The Guardians of the Galaxy for a strange combination of do-gooders! This is definitely a must-read!
