Onyx Webb Book 1 by Richard Fenton and Andrea Waltz

Description:

Delectably Creepy. Gripping. Fascinating.

Onyx Webb is a multi-genre mash-up that combines supernatural suspense, crime, horror, romance, and more. So the story... Onyx Webb is a ghost. Billionaire playboy Koda Mulvaney becomes obsessed with a girl he sees inside a mirror. Juniper Cole is on her way to the prom and... well, we don't want to spoil anything - we've probably told you too much already. How all these events are related is part of the mystery that is, Onyx Webb.

The Onyx Webb series follows the unusual life of Onyx Webb along with a central group of characters in various locations and times. The billionaire Mulvaney family, piano prodigy Juniper Cole and her brother Quinn, paranormal show hosts Cryer and Fudge, and a few others make up the core of the series. Written like a book version of a supernatural soap opera (think: American Horror Story) each character’s story moves forward with most every episode.

It may appear that the characters are entirely unrelated and yet episode by episode, the connections will become clearer. Like being an inch away from a spider web, with each book, the web will move further and further away revealing the full story of every character and most importantly, the stunning conclusion for Onyx Webb herself.

First of all, oh my goodness that cover! I was so glad I was reading this on my Kindle instead of actually holding a physical copy because this spidery cover just undoes me!  Luckily the story itself is not full of spiders, at least not yet, though who knows what is in store for us in future episodes!  This books collects the first 3 episodes into 1 book, there are 10 books in all with 32 total episodes.  They are available through Kindle Unlimited currently if you have that, or for around $3.99 each book.

I picked up the first one on hearing how much a friend was enjoying them, and though skeptical (she's much more into horror than I) gave it a try this week, it being the Halloween season and all.  There are many characters, all of them very different and well written, so that even though it is a lot to keep track of, they are all different enough that I didn't get confused.  You quickly get a feel for each scenario.  Add to that the fact they are occurring in different time periods throughout a roughly hundred year time frame, which adds another level of curiosity at how they are related to each other. 

I appreciated the very short, action packed chapters, and the ability of the authors to keep you hooked while doling out the tidbits of story.  As a non-horror fan I can report this was not too much for me, yet, and while murdery and twisty things happen, I was more intrigued than squeamish.  I'm in for the rest of the story because I need to find out how all of these people end up related!

Good find DragonGoddess! Thanks!
