Congratulations, Sandy for completing Stage 7 & unlocking Stage 8.

For this Stage, settings (by location) are the tasks. It could be geographical (eg. Russia, California, London, etc) or it could be "Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry" (Harry Potter went to this school) or "Enterprise" (one of Star Trek's spaceship name) etc. To be clear, fictional location allowed and please be more specific than not (ie. "on a spaceship" or "somewhere in fairyland" is not allowed)

To qualify, book must be set nearly 100% in that place. Variance allowed should be less than 5% of the whole novel.

If setting is not specified in metadata, please provide supporting evidence etc.

hospital is ok but it has to be specific, ie. Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry as opposed to 'school'
