About Roxanne Bland

Award-winning author Roxanne Bland was born in the shadows of the rubber factory smokestacks in Akron, Ohio but grew up in Washington, D.C. As a child, she spent an inordinate amount of time prowling the museums of the Smithsonian Institution and also spent an inordinate amount of time reading whatever books she could get her hands on, including the dictionary. A self-described “fugitive from reality,” she has always colored outside the lines and in her early years of writing, saw no reason why a story couldn’t be written combining the genres she loved and did so despite being told it wasn’t possible. Today, she writes stories that are mashups of paranormal urban fantasy, romance, and science fiction, as well as other speculative fiction genres. Bland lives in Baltimore, Maryland.

Reviews of The Underground by Roxanne Bland

Rebel Fleur reviewed on March 12, 2021

I really enjoyed how the things on Earth are described by the characters that haven’t seen Earth before. This was really clever and a real credit to the author! I also really enjoyed that we get to see the different characters’ lives running simultaneously until we get to see their stories cross paths. I wasn’t very keen on the sex scenes as I thought they were unncessesary which then made them seem a bit crude. I was completely hooked from the first chapter which shows what a good book this is as it isn’t a genre I would usually pick but once I started I couldn’t put it down! I think the writer’s style absolutely brought the book to life with the way the characters’ stories ran alongside each other until they crossed paths. I didn’t see any issues with the author’s grammar at all and thought the story flowed really well. The story made me feel every emotion possible, even within the same chapter! The main characters’ definitely did grow during the course of the novel and I really enjoyed seeing this throughout the story. This really helped with feeling different emotions throughout the book as it meant you cared for the characters and could really understand their feelings. The story did vaguely remind me of the Vampire Diaries due to the different species within. I believe the intended audience is those who enjoy Sci-Fi books but also those looking for something very different than what they would normally choose. I think the most memorable part of the book was the relationships between the different characters. This is because there were so many complicated relationships within the book that did cross over quite a bit. I think the book did absolutely live up to the blurb but to make it even better I think it could have been written in the third person as if by a few of the different main characters. This would make it more mysterious and hook you in even more! I would definitely read the next book in the series or other novels by the same author. I was given a free copy of this book using the scheme Voracious Readers Only.
