Dark Passage

SYNOPSIS: Jen takes refuge in a rundown mansion when her life falls apart. To escape reality she finds herself choosing between the world of the living and the dead. She begins having vivid experiences with a beautiful male entity who longs to be her soulmate.

Her childhood friend, 19 year old Ivy, has come from a rough past and has always been different. She learns she has the ability to communicate with the
dead and as time passes other supernatural gifts emerge. Ivy will stand against
the evil that would separate a love that transcends time and her true destiny
emerges.

Jen & Ivy are drawn into the compelling world of the dark side and propelled on
the most important journeys of their lives.


“With one final glance behind her, Jen urged her horse forward, and toward the safety of the mountains. Her heart was heavy and she immediately thought of the other realm. Her hope was that they were aware of what had happened and would help. Chaos was already breaking out; and the world was in danger of slipping back to a time of great darkness, reminiscent of the Middle Ages."

THOUGHTS:
This book in a nutshell:  Not your average paranormal story
I'd like to start off with a big thank you to M.L. Woolley for letting me read this book. It has been a pleasure reading it.

I would have given this book 5 stars, but I chose to give it 4 stars instead because I was a bit confused at the beginning. I was too much of a goldfish to realize that the POV constantly changes between the characters. It was strange at first, but when i settled into it, I was immediately drawn into the story.

Dark Passage is well written and unique, with haunting characters with so much depth, you feel like you've known them all your life. It tells of the struggles of trying to find out who you really are and where you belong in this world. I began to like how the author uses different POVs. It was easier to get into each character's head, and it made me fall in love with them even more.

A tale of tragedy, loss, and dark creatures, Dark Passage  is an edge of your seat kind of tale filled with romance and mystery. Filled with a lot of twists and turns, this is definitely not your average "good vs. evil" story. You'll want to read this book over and over again.

With all honesty, this book was better than most of the published books out there. M.L. Woolley is an indie author that will go places!   


THE NUB AND GIST:
A spectacular read! I'm definitely looking forward to the other books in the series.


Read this if:
you're looking for a page-turning, stay-up-til-midnight-to-finish-this, one-more-chapter-please book.
you're looking for stories with strong messages about believing in yourself
