My 56

“They’ll probably be from the extraterrestrial equivalent of Holllywood, so by nature they’ll be aggressive.” He laughed.

Book Beginnings

“Are we almost there?” Lauren asked excitedly as the Porsche shifted gears to negotiate the increasing steepness of the mountain road. The highway they were on was one of the old two-laners, and together with dazzling mountain scenery and the verdant walls of tamaracks and pines that surrounded them, it seemed like a scene right out of a picture postcard.

Review – Onyx Webb by Richard Fenton & Andrea Waltz @OnyxWebb

Onyx Webb by Richard Fenton & Andrea Waltz is a combination of genres that’s filled with hours of captivating reading, and plenty of thrills and chills.

I LOVE this fabulous cover that makes me shiver and cringe in anticipation of the horrors between the pages.

Onyx Webb: Book Four: Episodes 10, 11, 12Amazon  /  Goodreads

MY REVIEW

Onxy Webb is filled with death, murder, horror, ghosts, and lots of suspense and evil…

So beware. Check your Karma and see if you dare to enter, because your actions can have repercussions far beyond your wildest imagination.

Onyx Webb is a fabulous, mystical character that keeps surprising those around her and rightly so in my book. She is complex and misunderstood, and so not deserving of what is happening. I love that she takes her ‘life’ into her own hands, not leaving her fate up to others to decide.

Many of the characters are good ‘people’. Sometimes it was hard to know who was human and who was a ghost and I loved the surprise of learning who was who, or what.

I try to be alert, waiting for the next shoe to drop, the next accident to happen, the next person to die.

The tension and suspense is stretched, keeping me waiting, anticipating, fearing for my favorite characters.

Be careful how much of your heart you give to these characters, because some may not survive. I love when the author is not afraid to kill someone off, regardless of whether I like it or not.

What’s going to happen next and who is responsible? Many lives are tainted by the evil that touches them. Of course, there are those whose misfortunes I revel in as they get their just desserts.

Onyx Webb keeps pulling on me, drawing me in deeper and deeper as I struggle to accept the tragedies heaped on the characters. There is so much going on, so many characters and so much action, that the story calls to me, demanding I read on, read more, and more.

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of Onyx Webb:  Book IV by Richard Fenton & Andrea Waltz.

Animated Animals. Pictures, Images and Photos 4 Stars

GOODREADS BLURB

A multi-genre mash-up that combines elements of supernatural suspense, crime, horror, romance, and more.

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, 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.

About Andrea Waltz and Richard FentonOnyx Webb Book Three by Andrea Waltz and Richard Fenton

Richard Fenton & Andrea Waltz are a married writing team. Most well known for their business fables, they’re professional speakers who teach audiences on how to overcome fear of failure and rejection.  The Onyx Webb Series is their first serious dive into fiction.

Richard and Andrea have been in love with creating stories together since they met almost twenty years ago and even spent some time in Hollywood writing screenplays, being represented by the producer of Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Their favorite genres are suspense, thriller, crime and anything of a paranormal nature which is how Onyx Webb turned into a mash-up of all their favorites!

He’s Very, Very Hungry – Carnivore by Leigh Clark #LeighClark

I borrowed Carnivore by Leigh Clark from my sister, Laura, at fuonlyknew.

We both love creature features and will drop everything to read one.

Here’s a tease for you:

“This isn’t going to work out the way you think!”

Carnivore

Amazon  /  Goodreads

MY ONE SENTENCE REVIEW

As the death count rises, with body parts, and blood and guts flying, this creature feature shows no mercy to anyone for their arrogance and overstepping their bounds with this TRex.

Animated Animals. Pictures, Images and Photos  4 Stars

GOODREADS BLURB

In an Antarctic research outpost, a group of scientists made a discovery. For the first time, modern man would come face-to-face with the ruler of the prehistoric world, the king of the dinosaurs–the Tyrannosaurus Rex. Blinded by scientific zeal, the researchers thought only of the importance of their find, the contribution to science. But soon they are forced to open their eyes to an inescapable fact–once revived, the specimen would need to feed.

MY TEASE

(56% on Kindle)

GOODREADS BLURB:  A hair-raising thriller from an Amazon bestselling author! …A must read for mystery lovers.

But soon, another teenager disappears in the middle of the night and Emma suddenly finds herself leading a desperate manhunt to track down the killer before he strikes again.

-RUN, RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN is a spine-chilling mystery. It is the third book in Willow Rose’s bestselling Emma Frost series.

One Sentence Review – Tweedledum and Tweedledee by Willow Rose @willowredrose

I am a loyal follower of Willow Rose, so I was able to pick up Tweedledum and Tweedledee on a free day.

She writes some of the most amazing, frightening, original horror novels I have ever read.

If you are not familiar with her…I highly recommend you correct that…NOW!

The fabulous cover was designed by Jan Sigetty Boeje, her husband.

The photo of the Siamese Twin Creepy Doll was done by Jodi Carr at Tatteredrags.
