1)Elementalists (People who can channel and manipulate the elements): But only if I could be one of them.
2)Rodãors: these are rocks that open doorways to expandable pockets of space—it’s like a portable hotel room/house you can open and enter anywhere. I think it would be seriously cool to be able to carry your house around with you wherever you went.
3)A giant crystal city under a volcano in Iceland: I don’t think that needs an explanation. ☺
4) (Norah’s mentor): I always pictured Gerard Butler when I was writing Lylend’s character, and honestly, who wouldn’t want that to be real? Lylend is also my favorite character from Cobbogoth.
5)Healing stones: that would definitely cut down on the health care crisis.
6)Basili: I’ve always liked the idea of centaurs, and a half man, half lion with wings is way cooler than a centaur.
7)A portal into another world: need I say more?
8)Myth-chasers: Norah’s Uncle Jack is a world famous myth-chaser—someone who tracks down evidence that ancient myths and legends are based in some sort of truth. I love thinking about the possible in the impossible—like Atlantis or the Hyperborean.
9)Hoptioning: in Cobbogoth Lylend pulls Norah with him through inter-dimensional wormholes called “hoption holes” as a form of travel. We’d all save a ton of time, money, and the environment would be so much better off.
10)Lyf and Roogle: This is the Cobbogothian’s version of bread and jam. I just imagine the lyf, or the Cobbogothian’s jam being very tasty, like a mixture of lemon curd and Nutella, but with some heat. Maybe someday I’ll come up with the recipe. ☺
Thanks for stopping by Hannah!
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.
