More About the Author

Hannah L. Clark lives with her husband and their son in the Rocky Mountains. 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 her first novel.

In 2011, Clark started her own indie-publishing company, KinStone Publishing and published her first YA Fantasy called Cobbogoth. In the fall of 2013, after mild success, Cobbogoth was picked up by Cedar Fort Publishing. The manuscript was heavily revised and re-released on May 13, 2014 under the new title of Uncovering Cobbogoth.

Uncovering Cobbogoth is the first book in a seven book series based on Clark's mythological brain-child, The Legend of the Cobbogothians.

Clark loves her family, running, mythology, laughing, soulful bluegrass music, road-trips, herbal tea, reading, studying alternative medicine, retro hairdos, and growing things. Like her heroine Norah, she also kind of believes trees have souls, but must clarify (for her parents' sakes) that she was not raised by hippies. ;-)

I have to admit that when I first read the synopsis up there; I thought to myself that this would be one of those books that I would put on the back burner and will eventually get to hopefully, but when Teen Book Scene decided to put together a tour and asked if I wanted on it; I said yes. When I received the book I just set it off to the side and looked at it every now and then. I really didn't know how to approach it, but sure enough it kept calling to me and I eventually opened it up. And then I was sucked in with no chance of coming back. Once I got my first taste; I caught myself wanting it more and more. It became like a little addition.

This book, by far, tops my top 10 books list! Following Norah through her story why she was trying to discover who she really was and who her uncle was. She really took my emotions on a roller-coaster ride. I even cried at times {this is so not like me}. She is just a typical 17 year old girl, until her uncle's murder. He leaves her a journal of one of his earliest "digs" and she decipher it and tries to find his murderer along with what it is he wants her to know. She encounters some horrendous creatures along the way, goes through some intense moments, finds love just to lose it, and to truly learn who she is and where she belongs.

This is a fun and exciting read, with a lot of unpredictable twists and turns. I would recommend this book to any and everyone that I meet. If you have not read this book already, then what are you waiting go and get it NOW!

"You can't really be courageous without fear, kyndie, for courage is when you act in spite of fear." - Lylend

Most definitely one of the best book's that I've read in 2012!

I downloaded this for my Kindle when it was on a freebie list a few weeks ago. The synopsis sounded good, and for free I thought why not. It took awhile, but I finally got around to reading this novel, and once I started I didn't put it down until the last sentence was read in the wee hours of the morning. It's been some time since I've come across a book that is worth losing sleep for, and this one certainly was.

This isn't a typical YA fantasy/scifi/para story like the multitude of vampire or witch or werewolf or mermaid themes that fill bookshelves in stores currently. When after a couple of chapters it became apparent that this wasn't yet another entry into the aforementioned themes, I was downright giddy. And then to find out there wasn't a standard issue love triangle? I wanted to find the author and buy her dinner.

Cobbogoth is a smoothly paced story that takes the time to flesh out the main characters and give readers enough background information so we know the impetus behind the plot line. The main character Norah was quite likable and balanced - not über over confident nor someone who needed to be saved from the bad guys (and herself) every other page. The relationship she had with James was one of the most organic I've read about in a long time. No insta-love here. I enjoyed very much the author's use of Icelandic culture and geology. Definitely not something you read about very often in fiction novels, and a wonderful way to put hooks into the reader's interest. Sorry for being cheap with the details, but this novel is, well, novel, and deserves a chance to be read without someone spoiling the fun.

There were a couple editing errors and misspelled words, but nothing that would throw your mind completely out of the story.

This story was so much more than I expected. Norah ended up being one special girl and much stronger than she thought she was

Hooked, I say! Hannah has crafted a very intriguing and entertaining story. I enjoyed the Icelandic elements and the unique magic/technology. My favorite aspect of the story is that she perfectly nailed the point of view. Told from Norah Lukens' POV, she doesn't always understand what's going on, but the details she picks up are enticing and the emotions deep and real. Like Suzanne Collins in her Hunger Games trilogy, and Brent Meske's Super Nobody, Hannah masterfully uses the first-person perspective. Norah's struggle with having everything she knew about the world is now wrong, actually adds to the mystery.

Rebekah Shakespear's cover and interior design are gorgeous! Beautifully done.

I am seriously looking forward to Uncovering Cobbogoth!

The characters carried this story. Nor and James were quite the pair and while the revelations were easy to predict the story succeeded. The only flaw was the pseudoscience it felt superfluous.

This book was pretty good. It kept me up half the night reading it. I hope there is going to be another book to continue the story.

A friend of mine recommended this book written by her cousin so I checked it out and I was so pleased! I love this book. I can't wait to read the next one coming in December and I am encouraging my daughter to read it as well. If you like fantasy with a little mix of science this book is perfect. I had such a hard time putting this book down just so I could deal with real life and working on promoting my own book. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of this book.
