{Excerpt+G!veaway} Cobbogoth by Hannah Clark

For my tour stop, I have an excerpt from Hannah Clark’s book Cobbogoth. I think it looks awesome! Let me know what you think.  Cobbogoth By Hannah L Clark Genre: YA Fantasy romance To seventeen-year-old Norah Lukens, the Cobbogothians were just a myth. But after her archeologist uncle’s brutal murder, and being asked to translate one of his old research journals for evidence, she begins a journey to discover the truth for herself. Chasing the myth her uncle was obsessed with, Norah learns that his murder was a cover up for something far more sinister. If she hopes to save others from suffering the same fate he did–including the peculiarly magnetic James Riley–she must head to Iceland in order to find out the truth once and for all. If she succeeds, she’ll gain the one thing she’s always longed for. But if she fails, not even the gods can help her. Chapter one:  1 MEMORY LAPSE Standing before me was a woman with tangled hip-length hair—hair the color of blood…. Read more »

I was laughing so hard I couldn’t play the right notes but it didn’t matter since he followed me when I stumbled and made every mistake beautiful. The dream shifted until I played in the moonlight… Read more »
