Meet the Author:
Hannah L. Clark lives with her kinzura and their kynd in Utah. She has always known she would be a storyteller. In 2006 she graduated from Utah Valley University with a bachelor’s degree in English, and immediately began writing Cobbogoth.
Hannah loves running, mythology, laughing, soulful bluegrass music, and growing things. Like Norah, she is slightly inclined to believe that trees have souls.
My Review: Uncovering Cobbogoth by Hannah L. Clark
This is a fantasy adventure. Most of the story takes place in Boston. Their is another world of Cobbogoth that is very detailed. As they reveal little by little about it. and their race of people and talents that are more. There is lots of drama, action, betrayal, romance, sacrifice, and a whole new world. It is a clean YA story.
The characters are revealed little by little. You are never sure who to trust. Or who is on the right side of a major battle of good and destruction.
Norah Lukens is the main character. She has been away to school for her senior year. Her life has changed and is trying to figure out what is going on. She wakes up on a bus with no memory of leaving school. Her hair is a mess, a strange bracelet is on her wrist. When she gets home she finds her Uncle murdered.
James is a firefighter. He lives down the street from Norah and her Uncle. Last year they got close while is gram was dying. He has not called or written Norah since his gram died. He brings Norah to stay with him after her Uncle's murder.
There are a lot of characters, and myths told in this book. There are so many secrets that are revealed a little at a time.
I don't want to ruin the secrets.
Norah has to face a lot of her fears, as she tries to figure out what is going on. She agrees to help finish her Uncle's work even though it will be dangerous.
The pace of the book is fast and action packed. I did not want to put the book down till I had too.
The description of Cobbogoth sounds really special, beautiful. Lots of details to make it seem real. It is a place I would like to see.
This is the first book of a planned 7 book series. I will want to read the next book for sure.
I was given this ebook to read and agreed to give honest review and be part of its book blog tour.
