Best-Selling Authors Fenton & Waltz Welcome You to the World of Onyx Webb. This is Book One. (Episodes 1, 2, and 3)  
One reviewer says, "Fabulous. Different. Odd. Crazy. Wonderful. I've never read anything like it. You've created the weirdest, coolest new genre of fiction and I love 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 get 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. And that's just Book One. Designed to read like a supernatural soap opera, Onyx Webb is a paranormal suspense series, with supernatural romance, as well as a dash of historical fiction. 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.

Honestly,  I was a little concerned that this book is the first in a ten-book series. It raises the bar that much higher since it takes something very special to keep my attention for that long. So, does this series deserve such a big commitment? 

I really love this book. It is atmospheric, unique, and super creepy. I could tell right away that a lot of research went into it (from the different locations, to the time periods, to all the historical references). The characters are interesting and multidimensional, which is not always the case in paranormal novels so this was a pleasant surprise. The story captured my attention immediately. It is the kind of book that you want to pick up without knowing too much about the story. The way every point of view intertwines keeps the story fresh and unexpected. I loved that so much. Actually, I pretty loved everything about it, even the incredible design (seriously, the format adds so much to the story). I can't wait to know what happens next!  

If you're looking for a new series that has plenty of heart-pounding fun, definitely check out Onyx Webb
