In and out nor, in and out…
The saying “power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely” (John Dalberg-Acton) reigns true in this story. The story starts out in old Iceland where the Cobbogothians live and rule. War and power break out. In order to protect who they are and their legend, their secrets must go into hiding.
Fast forward many years later we meet Norah Lukens, who wakes up on a bus with no idea how she got there. Norah is a seventeen year old girl, but not your average girl. She memorizes everything she reads once, including her uncles secret coded language. Norah comes homes to some seriously sad news of her uncles murder, in which the story completely spirals. It’s a whirlwind ride, lots of fun, sad, anger, mystery and tears. There’s moments you feel like you hold your breath and moments that make you think “what the heck just happened?” And then there’s James… I won’t give away more of him but trust me, you’ll want to know more! There is not much I can say in this review without giving away the plot. Please go pick it up today and read it.
Reading Cobbogoth reminded me some of “Secret of the Keepers”, by Elizabeth Isaacs, where the heroine (may or may not be) from our realm. The story lines are not similar other than that reference.
I look forward to reading book two when it is available. I recommend this read to everyone!
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
