Underground Series Books 1-3 Review

Underground Serial
by Cassandra Carr
Genre: Black Ops/Military, Action, Suspense

Off the Grid, Underground 1- The seemingly impossible has happened. The unthinkable. Those I trusted most have betrayed me. I’m a hockey player, and gave control of my finances to my parents so I could concentrate on my game. Big mistake. They stole from me, bankrupted me, in fact. And then someone come looking for money I don’t have and I made a terrible mistake; one that will haunt me forever.
But now someone has found me and offered a new start. I would no longer be a hockey player, I wouldn’t even be an actual person, totally off the grid. I’d be a shadow, fighting crime for an organization that’s underground, literally. Do I want that life?
If I go back, what kind of life would I have? Probably one in prison orange. The choice to join Underground is painful, but necessary. As my hockey coach always said, though, pain is weakness leaving the body. I will not be powerless ever again.

This feels like it's the start of a fantastic new series.
Ethan, Mr. Superstar Hockey Player, finds out his parents lost all of his money, and then it goes downhill from there. The cast of characters you meet here are phenomenal. You can tell the author really did their research on the information they used in here. It's a well written intro story that is going to bring about an amazing action series.

Creating Slapshot:
I’ve left my old life behind and officially joined Underground. It appears no one knows where I am or even if I’m still alive. I don’t know how I feel about that. My friends thinking I’m dead leaves a hole in my heart, but I’ll drive myself crazy if I obsess about it. So rather than allowing myself to wallow in self-pity or anger about what’s happened, I’m throwing all my energy into training. You would think that whole “elite athlete” thing would make everything easier, but all these new techniques I need to master—hand-to-hand combat, weapons training, surveillance procedures—are kicking my ass.
For my whole life, I’ve only had one identity. Ethan, hockey player. Now that sense of self is gone forever, slowly being replaced by my new identity, Slapshot. Surreal doesn’t even begin to describe this transformation. But the more I find out about the world around me, the problems I ignored for the most part as I played a game for an obscene amount of money, the more I want to make a difference. This is not a game. It’s real life, and I have the chance to be a hero. It’s going to take everything I have—or have left, to do it.

*I received this book free in exchange for an honest review*
As the story progresses, we see Ethan struggle with his new life, his old life and everything he has to learn. This story has so many details and well thought out info, you can see the time that was put into this story.
"Look, Ethan, you only have one opponent right now, and that's yourself."
This is a great fun series, short reads, they are not stand alone, but so worth reading!

The more I get into this story, the more excited I get. The characters are fun and the story is interesting. This installment is where the action starts getting good! We've created Slapshot and now we're putting him to use!

"Frank is really ticklish. I'd be careful where you tested that theory, but watching him jump around before he surrenders and turtles on the floor is hilarious." Every character, even the side ones, are fun and interesting and I can't wait to find out more about all of them.
