Onyx Webb: Book Six: Episodes 16, 17 & 18
Authors: Richard Fenton, Andrea Waltz
Publisher: Lust for Living
ISBN-13: 978-0990751861
Genre: paranormal, mystery
Series: Onyx Webb

My Review:

I have received this book for a fair review, and this will not affect my judgement of the book.

A new update! I love Koda <3 and glad that the story is finally progressing more to the Mulvaneys, I cannot be happier that my wish had come true (somewhat). Book Six sadly is a little bit slower than the other books, the pace is still the same, but it seems like no one is going anywhere far this time, the three episodes are building a stage for the next few events.

Welcome a new member to the Onyx Webb series, Newt is certainly an interesting character I think I will enjoy following. He is young but a savant, and despite things working against him, he is making progress fast in his dream job, I think? Newt is like a catalyst for events to come, and it will be such a journey with him along. Aside from Newt, Olivia is fast gaining ground towards her break in life, I just hope she gets it.

Our lovable characters are struggling to move on, Onyx tries to balance the darkness within her with something positive; but things are looking grim. It feels like this is going to be a party sooner or later, I really want to know the answer to a lot of things, Hopefully the authors start throwing cake crumbs soon, I’m going crazy waiting. 

Like the author’s warning, Onyx Webb is truly a series you have to read from book one, much like you have to watch episode one of Breaking Bad to hook you in, because it is that kind of story. Once you start, you might become a follower, like me.

Onyx Webb: Book Six: Episodes 16, 17 & 18


Welcome Back to the World of Onyx Webb! This is Book Six. (Episodes 16, 17 & 18)

Haven’t Gotten Entangled Yet? Please Start with Book One.

More questions get answered in Book Six and NEW characters are introduced, several others return.

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.

In Book Six:

  1. The serial killer has taken his ultimate prize.
  2. In 2010, Koda attempts to find the girl in the mirror by crossing over to the other side.
  3. Onyx Webb finally has a new person in her life but like most things, it does not last.

EXCERPT
 
“Are you stalking me now? I’m seriously not in the mood,” she hissed as soon as I reached her table. She looked up at me through hooded eyes and, as if to make a point, took her fork and stabbed a cherry tomato with it until its juices bled all over her plastic plate. 
My bottom lip twitched with amusement. “Not stalking actually, just a coincidence I saw you here.” 
“So staring at me earlier wasn’t enough? You have to bother me now too?” 
Yikes! This girl seemed like a grade A level bitch. Usually, I would have shot her some deuces and left her alone, but for some reason I found the whole encounter humorous. 
“I saw you earlier during our cypher. You looked like you smelled a skunk or something,” I commented nonchalantly. 
Blood rushed up her face, causing her cheeks to turn a soft shade of pink. Something about the sight caused my dick to twitch as if it were trying to wave hello to her. God, had it really been two months since I last got laid? 
The girl sighed and rolled her eyes before dropping her gaze back down at her gross looking salad. “You know what? I don’t have the time or the patience to deal with this. Not today.” 
“What do you mean?” With a smirk on my lips, I sat down on the empty chair across from her. Her eyes immediately lifted, blazing furiously. 
“Did I invite you to sit down?” 
“We’re having a conversation. A bit rude for me to stay standing up only to talk down at you, eh?” 
“You—” She shut her eyes and took a few deep breaths, rolling her neck to the side. A horrible sounding POP soon followed, leaving me to wonder how her head was still attached to the rest of her body. After a few silent moments, which really seemed as if she were plotting my death, she spoke again. “I had a rough day. My roommate is batshit crazy and I don’t even want to go to this school to begin with. Please leave me alone so I can sulk in peace.” 
I reached out and grabbed the smashed tomato from her plate, popping it into my mouth. “Funny, I don’t want to be here either. Guess we have that in common.” 
“Are you always this annoying?” she snapped. 
“Are you always this hospitable?” I shot back with a wink. 
Placing her elbows on the table, she rested her head in her hands, rubbing at her temples. “What do you want, dude? Like I said, I’m not in the mood for this, so either speak your piece or leave. Better yet, why don’t you just leave?” 
“Why did you look like you hated what you saw?” 
She raised her head in surprise, taking her time to eye me from head to toe. I smirked knowingly as her eyes traveled from my biceps to my defined pecs. 
She stammered. “I-I have no idea what you’re even talking about.” 
Yup, she was definitely checking me out.

GILT: Sin Never Sleeps

 

Sin Never Sleeps (Gilt Book 2)
Author: Geneva Lee
Genre: adult romance, thriller
Supplied by: Inkslinger

My GILT 2 review

I would like to thank Inkslinger and author Geneva Lee for providing me with both GILT: By Invitation Only and GILT: Sin Never Sleeps so I can have a clearer picture. I have received books in exchange for a fair review, and this will not affect my judgement. 

Weeks after By Invitation Only, Emma Southerly is in Palm Springs, hiding; but not for long. Emma finds herself in trouble again as Jameson West breaks bail to track her down. She should have known that things that happens in Vegas does not always stay there, particularly when you are a murder suspect. The chemistry between the two might be electric, but if that electricity does not kill them, something else would.

With the appearance of “The Dealer”, Emma realize that the stakes are higher with someone stalking people in the Belle Mere community, why is this happening? These people, hidden in the shadows have an agenda, and Emma seems to be like a fly stuck in a web. I really hope the spider is not hungry, things are starting to look interesting.

Sin never sleeps they say, and in GILT, it does not appear so either. As Emma and Jameson tries to track down the culprit, things are never more heated and dangerous. If  GILT: By Invitation Only does not entice you, hopefully GILT 2 will. The book has the makings of a thrilling TV series, I agree with a lot of people that it has everything it needs: sex, lies and murder. 

Being such a fast paced book, luckily you can actually slow down and rewind if you think you have missed something. Emma’s life is chaotic, and GILT will make you be thankful that your lives are peaceful and boring, sometimes.

Sin Never Sleeps (Gilt Book 2)


On the heels of a brutal attack, Emma Southerly finds herself swept away to Palm Springs, but she can’t run from trouble, especially when it has a habit of chasing her down. A mysterious stranger is posting incriminating photos of the less-than-upstanding citizens of Belle Mère, but is it a friendly game or something more sinister?

When Jameson West breaks his bail and tracks her down, he delivers more bad news. Emma’s landed on the suspect list. No one knows who killed Nathaniel West, but now there are two suspects, two investigations, and two people with every reason to turn on one another. Someone in Belle Mère is a murderer—someone closer to both of them than they could ever imagine—and unless they stick together, they might find themselves falling into a trap instead of falling in love.

Because when the cards are dealt, everyone might lose.

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil

Amazon Affliate Image


Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil, 5.1 Ounce

Amazon Product Description: An advanced multi-purpose skin perfection product that can be used all over the body, including face. Cetesomate-e complex helps improve the skin penetration and absorption characteristics of the formula into the epidermal layer of the skin. Cetesomate-e complex along with our exclusive blend of key ingredients helps improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, dry, damaged skin, uneven skin tone, aging skin and fine lines and wrinkles.

I got this on a special from the pharmacy last two weeks ago, as my Roger & Gallet Dry Oil was running out, by special I meant a free 60mL bottle for the price of the big one.

20160709_070641.jpg

Palmer’s Skin Therapy is not a new product, but this is the first time I am using their cocoa butter skin therapy oil, mainly it is to stop my stretch marks from getting worse, or at least prevent more stretch marks with my second pregnancy. This cocoa butter is definitely boasting a lot of function, so I was keen to try it out at least during this cold, harsh and really dry winter season. The wind just bites, and Prince Brat’s face is getting all red and dry from all that cold wind.

For Prince Brat, less than a pump, or a tiny drop on the face after shower and before bed.
Verdict: the redness and dryness took about 2 days to go back to normal, or at least not angry red like he had been slapped. I am happy to see that the result was so obvious on his case. 
Baby friendly, absorbs well and quickly with no residue. I would just likely pat on his cheeks and off he goes.

For Me:
I did not have a break using body oils all the way. Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Skin Therapy definitely is oilier than Roger & Gallet’s Dry Oil, but in terms of absorption, it is quick with a massage. I am happy with the smell, the cocoa buttery smell, which is not overpowering or annoying. I guess I do like chocolate, and this smells of one.
Verdict: Unsure, applying on my face was okay, but I had to reduce the amount because it was oilier than I am used to with Rosehip oil, but it does not give you the oily feeling after that.

For the price, I guess it is pretty fair and reasonable, and I am happy with the purchase. But I am sure it will not be on my summer beauty regimen.

I Wish My Teacher Knew: How One Question Can Change Everything for Our Kids
Author: Kyle Schwartz
Genre: non- fiction, education
Publisher: Da Capo Lifelong Books
ISBN-13: 978-0738219141
Book received from: Publisher via Netgalley

I have received the book in exchange for an honest opinion, this will not change my viewpoint regarding the book.

I wish my teacher new was an assignment thought up by third grade teacher and author Kyle Schwartz, the answers were not all published, except tear- jerking ones. But the revelation from the assignment should spark a new fear for our future generations, I am not talking about just American school system, even though the book is written based on U. S. statistics. The truth is, a lot of countries are having the same problem, a lot of developed countries, First World countries where these problems should not exist. 

First of all, the author discusses poverty, unstable environment and lack of teacher support and its impact on student life. We talked about it, how being hungry makes it hard to concentrate, kids from lower socioeconomic classes tend to do badly in studies etc, but the author takes it one step closer: suggesting how to make a change to help. From a welcome pack to acknowledge a new student to a food closet where kids could take food without being judged, a gesture that means a lot to young souls.

When you read those notes, you would realize how badly we are failing, or have failed our future. This is not just a simple assignment: to find out what students what the adults to know. You can attack the thought of asking the student to fill in the blanks. Honestly, he was just trying to understand his charge better. Knowing that your student is homeless, starving or is being abused is no laughing matter, but what are you doing to do about it?

I Wish My Teacher Knew is a book everyone who care about our future should read, it highlights a lot of sore points in the education system. Worse of all, it highlights society’s hidden problem, and we should work to solve it quickly. These children are the pillars of our future, and if we screw up their education, what will become of the future?

I Wish My Teacher Knew: How One Question Can Change Everything for Our Kids


One day, third-grade teacher Kyle Schwartz asked her students to fill–in–the–blank in this sentence: ?I wish my teacher
knew _____.” The results astounded her. Some answers were humorous, others were heartbreaking–all were profoundly moving and enlightening. The results opened her eyes to the need for educators to understand the unique realities their students face in order to create an open, safe and supportive place in the classroom. When Schwartz shared her experience online, #IWishMyTeacherKnew became an immediate worldwide viral phenomenon. Schwartz’s book tells the story of #IWishMyTeacherKnew, including many students’ emotional and insightful responses, and ultimately provides an invaluable guide for teachers, parents, and communities.

Melody’s Key

Melody’s Key
Author: Dallas Coryell
Genre: Young adult, romance

I was given this book in exchange for a fair review, it will not affect my honest opinion.

Tegan Lockwood and her family are trying to struggle through a tough time, running a bed and breakfast type holiday house that serves many people during the holidays. From the beginning, there is no trouble understanding the tough times, and Tegan is happy to sacrifice herself for her family.

When Mason Keane turns up at their doorstep, Tegan’s life is turned upside down. Mason Keane, famous rock-star, Tegan expects to find a jerk full of hot air, while Mason thinks everyone is out to get a piece of him. The distrust is obvious, and entertaining. In small town of Lymington, there is not many places you can run when you want to hide. 

In between the interactions of characters, there are letters from the past, a snippet of romance that would warm your heart. Tegan finds some letters from her ancestors and discover some interesting facts, while trying to move forward in life as it goes on. As she and Mason communicates more, they find solace in each other’s company, turning it to a romance worth having.

Written by Dallas Coryell, a musician as well as an author, the book has parts that I can only imagine hearing. Both characters are musically talented, and the lyrics are lovely to read, almost like a poem you can sing to, I do wish to hear it one day. Melody’s Key is titled so for a reason, you would have to read it to find out why, it certainly is a suitable name.

A nice young adult romance story, a reminder to chase your dreams and do not be afraid to make mistakes. We are all young once, and life is about learning new things, even if they hurt. 

 Here is one of the songs in the story, probably my favorite on the list 😛

Melody’s Key


“His eyes settled on her…piercing green embers of flame that revealed the ferocity of his pain and passion, yet still shrouded him under veils of ever deepening mystery that made every ounce of her ache to unravel him.” Tegan Lockwood’s dreams were dead, sacrificed on the noble altar of duty before they ever had a chance to live. Her entire existence was disappearing into the abyss of apathy as she labored her days away keeping her family’s struggling business alive. There would be no emotion, no color, no beauty in her life. That is, until a mysterious visitor begins to draw her out of the darkness of her past towards something that will challenge the boundaries of her world, and unlock the most deeply held secrets of her heart.

The Summoned King

The Summoned King: Book One of The Kalymbrian Chronicles
Author: Dave Neuendorf
Series: Kalymbrian Chronicles #1
B01BKYMI3Q
Genre: Young adult, Fantasy

I was gifted The Summoned King in exchange for a fair review.

Indiana high school senior James Young is a promising young man who seems to be on track to a good successful life. A nap in the library had turned into the greatest adventure for James, when he was transported to Kalymbria. Ever the cool head, James quickly adapts into his new environment, becoming the Summoned King of Kalymbria.

It is a place where magic exists, and Kings are summoned to help pass laws or do puppet king duties. King James is quickly married to Julia Roper, a commoner chosen to be his queen. Things get interesting quickly, because James is full of ideologies about equality and fairness, and starts to challenge the Council.

Yes, the book has a few characters, but only a handful who makes it to the main cast, Maynard the wizard is one that I find annoying, while Julia’s a girl who seems to appeal to me with her sharp mind. James’ adventure is fraught with danger, and his determination only gets stronger as powerful people sought to end his rule before it begins.

The book is aimed at young adults who likes to imagine themselves in James’ shoes, changing the world with courage, and not be afraid to try new things. The Summoned King is a good start to the Kalymbrian chronicles, and will be a good story to start. It will be interesting to see the direction the new King takes Kalymbrian people to, hopefully it does not end with sadness and war.

Discussion topics with young adults after reading:
1. the law and equality
2. What would you have done differently
3. Why are people resistant to his new rules?

 

The Summoned King: Book One of The Kalymbrian Chronicles


Indiana high school senior James Madison Young might best be described as a Renaissance man: intelligent, of good character, well educated, and full of passionate interests in everything from Krav Maga to robotics. One evening he falls asleep while studying at the library. He wakes to find himself in another world, filled with magic, danger, and romance. He has been summoned by court wizard Maynard to be the king of Kalymbria. Forced into marriage with the beautiful and magically powerful yet untrained Julia Roper for his queen, he must restore the lapsed Constitution in the face of opposition from a hostile Council of Advisors, and defend his new country from the evil machinations of the wizard Ruinga and her allied kingdom of Venicka. Rediscovering the lost art of enchantment may provide him with a powerful edge in his quest, if he can survive the assassins and conspiracies arrayed against him.
