A ruthless murder and a stolen shipment of gold.

At school, sixteen-year-old Nikaia Wales endures the taunts of bullies who call her a “half-breed.” At home, she worries about how her family will react if she reveals her growing feelings for the quiet boy next door.

Those are soon the least of her troubles. Nikaia discovers a hidden cache of gold, and when police find a corpse nearby, her father becomes a suspect. Worse, Elias Doyle is circling, hungry to avenge his brother’s death.

Nikaia desperately searches for clues to save her father. In her quest to find the killer, she learns about the power of family, friendship, and young love....

Buy the butterfly....Just my completely unbiased opinion  ::) Really...trust me, not biased at all.  ;D

If you like the Butterfly one that much, it seems that is the best "value";

get what makes your heart sing!

After a few days, you're going to forget what you spent on it, but you're going to be looking at that cover for a long time;

Regarding the Velcro vs. straps, I prefer the straps; I have the new thinner straps and mine aren't in the way of any buttons on my K2.
But as everyone is saying, it is a matter of personal preference;

I think, though, as far as resale, it's a bit easier to sell if you have the straps, if that is a consideration for you.

I had a really bad experience with the amazon black cover today.... BAD... but knowing an Oberon is on its way makes everything better.

I think you made a great choice!   :)

Thanks everyone.. i'm really excited.

One question if anyone can help me out.. I am desperate to know if the Oberon case has those malicious hooks to secure it into the Kindle (like my evil Amazon cover had)

Thanks!

No hooks, just straps; very easy and very secure.
I'm so excited for you, and glad you got the one you love;
Please post pics when you get it.

I was having a stressful workday, and then I received an email saying my Oberon had shipped!!

It made allll the difference...

will definitely post a pic of the skin/cover combo...I'm counting the days. It might take a while to get here because I went with cheapo shipping.

If you chose USPS, you're actually in good shape. UPS has taken everyone longer to arrive. So you should get it soon!  ;D

It will arrive soon, I'm sure! I can sympathize with your eagerness to receive it, though. :)

I was so excited when my Oberon arrived. After waiting all that time, it arrived so silently that I didn't know until I opened the door to check (which I was doing about once an hour, lol!). I thought that UPS would have knocked, or that I would have heard the truck, but no.

lol.. you DO sound like you can sympathize!!

Today was the worst... I pick up my mail at a communal box thing, and in my mailbox was the key to the BIG mail box for packages... I held my breath excitedly as I opened the big box... and inside was an iron that I forgot I had ordered. AN IRON.

Needless to say, it was a bit of a let down...but I'm still excited and looking forward to it!!  :)

Ha ha!  How aggravating! I guess while you are waiting for your Oberon, you can pass the time by ironing.  ;D  I am sure it will be there soon. It's hard to know how much longer it would take for an international delivery than it took for US delivery. I hope it arrives soon, though. By the way, my Oberon cover was worth all the anticipation - - it is prettier than I had ever imagined. :)
