“Crystals grew inside rock like arithmetic flowers. They lengthened and spread, added plane to plane in an awed and perfect obedience to an absolute geometry that even stones -- maybe only the stones -- understood.” - Annie Dillard
author Hannah L. Clark's debut novel is an exciting fantasy adventure. filled with magic, mystery, intrigue, secrets and suspense, this book kept me reading well past my bedtime again. it reminded me somehow of Jules Verne's Journey to the Center of the Earth but Cobbogoth's plot is totally different.
the author's worldbuilding and imagery are equally impressive. i also loved how Ms. Clark used and integrated crystals and minerals into the storyline.
there are also beautiful illustrations throughout which marked chapters and pages.
overall, this novel is a remarkable piece of work and it comes highly recommended.
*Cobbogoth is available at Amazon (paperback, Kindle) and Barnes and Noble (paperback, NOOK book). for more information about Hannah L. Clark and her work, please visit her website, blog, the Cobbogoth book site and Facebook page and follow her on Twitter.
