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.
Before discovering her uncle’s death, she had been looking forward to coming home from school and to possibly reigniting with James Riley, her neighbor and possibly more than just a friend. But now, she’s a bit confused about his actions. Can she trust him? The bigger question may be, who can she trust?
I’m not accustomed to reading fantasy, but a good author can take you by the hand and lead you dexterously through any genre – character detail and scenes which open your eyes to a whole new world. I believe Ms. Clark has a fair amount of this talent. I could ‘see’ what was taking place without great effort. Norah is sketched as an extremely smart individual, yet she is not obsessed with her mental capabilities. The story does have flashback moments to which the reader needs to adjust and figure where they belong in the big picture. I rated this 3.5 out of 5.
While I did enjoy it, at times I did feel like there was too much world-building (info-dumping). I’ve read a lot of fantasy books and so maybe because of that I wasn’t too surprised by how things unfolded. It was a bit predictable. I also didn’t connect with the romance. Maybe since a lot of the book they are apart and a big part of their time together is from flashbacks. Don’t get me wrong, I thought they had a sweet romance and I was rooting for them, but I would have liked to have seen them together more, I wanted to fall in love with him along the way and instead I felt like I was just supposed to accept that they were in love, but wasn’t really there when it happened. It’s probably just me.
Overall, a fun and entertaining read. I think a lot of people would enjoy this one and I know I’ll be on the lookout for the second book.
I'll spout my usual "the author needs to work on her grammar and the book could use a few more rounds of editing" line (because, as is so often the case, it's true), but really my only issues were: (1) the distracting artwork stamped into the text, and (2) the just-a-bit-too-happy-ending. I'm anxious to read the second book in the series not because I want to know more about the Cobbogothians' rocky ways (though I do), but because I want to see if Clark can expand Norah's character without, well, without the thing that everyone thought was going to happen happening. So often tragedy shapes one's character - I hope Clark finds a way to keep Norah from going stale.
Would I recommend it: Yeah, it's cool. Rocks are cool.
