Onyx Webb: Book Nine: Episodes 25, 26, 27 & 28
Book Nine is the most cataclysmic book in the series yet and what we have been building to for so long. The web is almost entirely formed now. But questions remain: what happens to everyone now that it is?
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.
In Book Nine:
The Mulvaney's host the Solstice Eclipse Ball for the Restoring Savannah Foundation and Gerylyn's prediction comes to pass.
Stan Lee gets his revenge and Juniper battles a dark evil at the mansion.
Onyx Webb spends her days at the lighthouse alone again without Noah Ashley but Noah may have other plans.
My Review: Holy Smokes!!!! Mostly the book is about the Solstice and the events leading up to it, and the events after as well. There's so much that goes on in this one book it almost makes your head spin, and you might want to reread it just to make sure you got it all! I know I am! :) Or maybe that's just an excuse since I love this series so much.
Koda is busy getting things all squared away and perfect before the guests arrive, but there is one guest, or should I say "staff member" that he doesn't know will be there. And she wants to keep it that way if at all possible. But fate has other plans.
Declan finally comes clean, in a way, with Koda about his sickness and they have a special moment. But the night's events will have a way of leaving you with your jaw hanging open.
We don't really see Onyx much in this book, and that's okay! But when we do visit her we see that she's having to deal with an unwelcome visitor at night. But don't worry about Onyx, she's tough and I'm more scared for who shows up uninvited because they clearly don't know what they're walking in to. But, the last time we see Onyx in this book, it's totally worth it! It's a cliffhanger and leaves us turning the page, or swiping left for us iPad users, in hopes of more of the story. Richard and Andrea know what they're doing. Come on Book 10!
As for Mika. Mika, Mika, Mika. Let me just say I was glad.
Stan Lee suits up one more time as the Southern Gentleman to MC the Mulvaney's Restoring Savannah Foundation event. He does a stellar job getting the crowds attention, and his dialogue seems to go over well with everyone. The night is going wonderfully, he even got a hot date, even though she only used him to get in to the party. Does that sound like anyone we know...and hate? Hmmmm..... Well, as I said, all seems to be going well until Kara shows up. When she hops on the scene all reasoning (what little Stan Lee actually has) goes away. Let's just say Stan doesn't get what's coming to him (yet), but Newt has figured out who the Leg Collector is and he and Maggie are on the way! But will they get there in time?
Wyatt, bless his heart, is on death row and has been moved to a room where he will spend his last night on Earth. Quinn just so happens to be sitting with the Governor of Georgia at the party in Charleston, and will do his best to convince the Governor that Wyatt is innocent. But will that mean he has to come clean about Juniper being a ghost? Maybe. Maybe not. Again, the way the night unfolds will just leave you stunned in some ways.
In fact, this whole book is nothing like any of the others, at least to me. There was a lot of revealing, some deaths of main characters (some we love, some we don't), and it really moved the story in a direction I didn't expect.
It's just brilliant!
Book 10 is set to arrive on the scene soon, I hope. I'm itching to see how this all comes together and how it will end. But at the same time I will miss this series so much. I've become so invested in these characters that I want it to continue on in some fashion. Maybe there will be a sequel to Onyx??
But I do hope it's a happy ending for Koda and Robyn. As well as Wyatt. And most of all Onyx.
