I cant believe that we are nearing the end of the summer! The months have flown past and fall is right around the corner- I have been busy with work and all of the other things that occupy my life- I have been working on part two and also have started a new series- I love to write and put ideas to paper. It can be a consuming passion and after a few months off I simply must get back at it- I hope you have had a wonderful summer and took time to enjoy yourself!

Ivy, as she clearly states, is a 19 year-old free spirit. What she is to discover is that she is so much more, that she has so much to give to save others. She is Chosen, with special gifts, that at times can be terrifying. Imagine having to face demons from your past, demons from the underworld, stand up to them to save not only yourself, but those you love! Where does she find the strength?

This book is dark and has an almost mystical quality to it. The evil is intense, overwhelming, but the Li

I wish to thank the author, M.L. Woolley, for gifting me with a copy of her latest book in the Dark Passage series.

Ivy discovers that she is Chosen after she discovers the Book Of Prophesy. She travels through the Veil to the Underworld on a journey to find the hidden Tree of Life. This Tree holds the secret to releasing the evil that has fallen over the world. In the process of locating the Tree she discover the terrible secrets of the underworld. Nothing is as it seems, and she has to find ans

I want to first thank author M.L. Woolley for gifting me a copy of Underwolrd - the second book in the Dark Passage series.

I was blown away by the first book in this series, Dark Passage, and this author gave us another excellent adventure to experience.

Following the skillful storytelling by M.L. Woolley, it was eerie and scary to take this journey with heroine Ivy as she battles evil forces to save her friends. Being a "super hero" didn't mean that Ivy's battle would be easy though she has the
Epic video game, Dante's Inferno, Pilgrim's Progress meet 19 year old girl. She rocks! As the main character goes into Hell to rescue friends she meets many horrid obstacles along the way. This is non-stop excitement. Minor romance but not as bad or as angsty as most YA's. This girl is on a mission. Her will and self-worth are on the line the whole way. I have got to wonder if the author had nightmares many a night as she wrote this. Oh, and there's a horse!

There are places I found the tenses go

This is a book that I won in a Goodreads giveaway. The author even sent a message to me herself letting me know that I was getting a copy, how nice!

I have not read the first book in this Dark Passage series, although I hope to soon. I think reading Chosen (book #1) would have helped me understand and sympathize with some of the lesser characters in Underworld (and maybe I would have a better grasp on why the characters had retreated where they are currently living). My recommendation is to read

Underworld (Dark Passage) M L Woolley

Underworld is part 2 of the Dark Passage Series and is set for general release in January 2013. I was supplied with a copy by the author in return for an honest review. I found this book incredibly intense, and as I hadn't read part one it took some time to work out what was happening and who the characters were and how they related to the story. Ivy, a 19 year old girl is a Chosen and needs to go into a sort of parallel realm called the Underworld to save he

M.L Woolley has done it once again. Underworld book 2 in the Dark Passage Series is an amazing read that readers will have a hard time putting down. Underworld is a darkly written book, but M.L. Woolley uses her talent to add a mystical quality to her words. There is plenty of evil from beginning to end, sometimes that evil is pretty intense and readers will feel as if all has failed. With the hint of a promise the light is there, just waiting to come out and be victorious. The landscape and wor ...more

I really liked the story idea of both the books by M.L. Woolley I have read so far (Chosen and Underworld), but did have some trouble getting through them. Like others have commented, it was hard to tell who was in the story telling it from their perspective, in the first book there's an area where Ivy is getting on a horse, but then Jen's name is tossed in and confuses the whole issue until I realized it was a typo. The books feel to me like they were all the notes and ideas just tossed togethe ...more

#2 Dark Passage series

Having read Chosen, I was happy to jump into Underworld to see where the story was leading, and wasn’t disappointed. The details and writing style draws you in and you’ll soon be completely immersed in the underworld as Ivy fights to save people that have been taken there. A dark read, this isn’t your typical YA story, but so much more. Well written, incredibly descriptive and with vivid scenes, you’ll soon let your imagination take you away.

Underworld is building towards something. I'm not entirely sure what yet, but I hope the next book will start pulling things all together. This book felt like a big teaser of what's to come, and it worked. I'm anxious to find out more!

Starts out strong then gets lost in repetition. Facts can change in the same paragraph with little follow through but with a little polish and some much needed proofreading I see an upcoming author to watch.
