Follow this 10-part serial throughout 2015 featuring Ethan, aka Slapshot, a hockey player whose life is ruined, forcing him to disappear forever. Ethan joins Underground, a black ops organization and is trained as a deadly operative. There, he meets Ciana, a woman with a dark past of her own. As Ethan and his Underground colleagues embark on dangerous missions worldwide, he finds a new purpose in life. But will his former problems come back to haunt him?
Off the Grid:
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 came looking for money I don’t have and I did something terrible that will haunt me forever. After that, I took off with no thought about where I’d go or what I’d do.
But a secret organization found me and offered a new start, a salvation. I would no longer be a hockey player, I wouldn’t even be an actual person. Doing this would require me to go totally off the grid. I’d be a shadow, fighting crime with a group that’s underground, literally. Do I want that life?
If I went 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.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Off the Grid (Underground #1) by Cassandra Carr Ethan is the perfect hero for this story. I love that he is selfless and upset that he lets his team down by abandoning them. Not that any of it is his fault. He seems to be a great fit for the Under Ground. I have always appreciated my parents, but let me tell you after reading this story I value them even more. Ethan’s parents are pretty selfish. Off the Grid is an excellent foundation for the rest of the series. Carr does an exceptional job explaining everything. Her attention to detail is noteworthy. Off the Grid has a different feel then Cassandra Carr‘s other novels. I’ve enjoyed everything I have read by her, from what I’ve read so far this series is looking to be my new favorite by her.
