Have you been following the Onyx Webb series?
Synopsis of Book One in case you haven't started it.
"It’s June, 1980 and piano prodigy, Juniper Cole is on the way to her senior prom.
- It’s January 2010, and Koda Mulvaney has blown through his 20 million dollar trust fund and is told by his father to return home and go to work.
- It’s August, 1904 and little Onyx Webb is on her way to the famous World’s Fair in St. Louis with her father, Catfish.
Two of the three will see a ghost, one will become a ghost and everyone will learn that life is hard to let go of even when you’re dead. A paranormal suspense, supernatural romance, with a dash of historical fiction, Onyx Webb is what author Richard Fenton and Andrea Waltz have called creep-spiration. The stories may haunt you, the darkness may disturb you, but ultimately you’ll be reminded to treasure every moment of your life because… If you think life is precious now? Just wait until you’re dead."
In Book Five, we learn more about the Mulvaney's and their history, Stan Lee and his history, more about what makes them tick along with Mika and Onyx. The web continues to be woven a little tighter with each book. This is one of those books that you have that feeling of not wanting to read the last few pages, because then it is done and now what? We have to wait until July for Book Six. These are really quick reads. I could easily read one in a day.
Here is the new cover. Now the series isn't horror so if you don't like that sort of thing, don't worry. Think Twilight, Dark Shadows ...
FYI: Onyx Webb: Book One was a finalist (in the Cross Genre category) in the National Indie Excellence Awards. http://www.indieexcellence.com/indie-results-10th-finalists.htm
The authors have made being a fan of the series, interactive. It's pretty fun. They have a great Face Book page and you can become a fan and receive newsletters that are pretty cool. They a bit about their inspirations for different parts and settings of the story, how they go about writing such a complex series and "fun facts" about other things. For instance did you know the reason there is all the hoopla about Friday the 13th? This was on the FB site last week.
"Why is Friday the 13th considered bad luck? Historically: The # 13 represents Judas, the 13th to arrive at The Last Supper. Friday by itself is unlucky because it was the day of Christ's Crucifixion. Years ago, the British set out to disprove the superstition. They named a new vessel HMS Friday, laid her to keel on a Friday, and then set her to sea on a Friday that fell on the 13th. Neither ship not crew was ever heard from again. Then of course, there's Apollo 13. - Source The Little Book of Answers by Doug Lennox"
