Onyx Webb: Book 5: Episodes 13, 14 & 15
Onyx Webb is a complex 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 your favorite tv series (think: supernatural soap opera like 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.

My Review: Oh, my! Time is passing and getting closer to present day in Book 5. So much is happening, and the web is getting tighter...such a great phrase! ;)
We pick up with Koda's accident, and we see Mika get nastier and nastier. She also has been hiding something, and it seems she needs to use a five-fingered discount to keep up the life she's so used to. But at who's cost? She's the devil with woman parts! Ugh, I cannot stand her. But, I can't wait to see her get what's coming to her. And I hope it's a doozy!
Stan Lee has been given a means to get around, and it's not his wheelchair. This gives him a bit of new found freedom and let's him explore new ways of possibly getting close to Bruce and Delcan...but will it pay off? It just might, in the end. He's also getting more confident in the fact that he hasn't been caught yet, and meets one reporter who inadvertently puts him in his place, saying that one day the killer will mess up. Well, he does mess up but he cleans up his mess, so to speak. Stan Lee's a head case for someone, that's for sure! I can't wait to see what happens to him, either.
Delcan is really starting to feel more human to me in this book, as well as Bruce. We also see how Bruce met his wife, Nisa, Koda's mother. With Koda in the hospital the two men have to deal with the emotions of seeing their son and grandson laying there, not sure when, or even if he'll wake up. But, all the while Delcan is looking out for his family. With Tank gone he needs to replace the security for his family, and there's just one person that he can think of that's been there for him.
We see Onyx a few years down the road still holding on to her lighthouse. It's getting hard for her to keep up the means to pay for it, and Bruce Mulvaney has just the person to take it out from under her...not that he wants a beautiful old lighthouse. Nope. He just wants the oceanfront property it is sitting on. I mean, what a great investment that would return money, right?! We also get to see a reunion of Onyx and Sister Katherine! Katherine comes clean about some things, and Onyx does as well. But when Katherine confesses to Onyx that God gave her a message to do his dirty work here on earth, things get a little awkward. Katherine knows there's one person who's been haunting her dreams, and she has got to get out there and find him and take care of that loose-end. So Katherine ends up leaving, and as we see, it would have been in her best interest to have stayed put! If only characters could hear you when you tell them something... ;)
The web tangles even more in this book and as with the others, leaves you hanging and wanting to know what happens next! I love how Fenton and Waltz give us a sneak peek into the next book. It's just enough to whet your appetite, but at the same time makes you crave the rest!! I cannot wait for Book 6! And the sooner it's out, the better. :))) These authors have done such an amazing job not only with the characters, but in how they tell the story that makes us readers appreciative for the anticipation of what's waiting on the next page...and the next book.
