Title: THE DRAGONS OF NOVA (Loom Saga #2)
Author: Elise Kova
Pub. Date: July 11, 2017
Publisher: Keymaster Press
Formats: Hardcover, eBook, audiobook
Cvareh returns home to his sky world of Nova with the genius crafter Arianna as his temperamental guest. The mercurial inventor possesses all the Xin family needs to turn the tides of a centuries-old power struggle, but the secrets she harbors must be earned with trust — hard to come by for Ari, especially when it comes to Dragons. On Nova, Ari finds herself closer to exacting vengeance against the traitor who killed everything — and everyone – she once loved. But before Ari can complete her campaign of revenge, the Crimson Court exposes her shadowed past and reveals something even more dangerous sparking between her and Cvareh.
While Nova is embroiled in blood sport and political games, the rebels on Loom prepare for an all-out assault on their Dragon oppressors. Florence unexpectedly finds herself at the forefront of change, as her unique blend of skills — and quick-shooting accuracy — makes her a force to be reckoned with. For the future of her world, she vows vengeance against the Dragons.
Before the rebellion can rise, though, the Guilds must fall.
Let me first say that I really enjoyed the first book in this series – ALCHEMISTS OF LOOM. The world building and characters were like nothing I’d ever read before — I loved the fierceness of Arianna, the wit of Cvareh, and the endearing nature of Florence. So when that book ended on a virtual cliffhanger — I reached for DRAGONS OF NOVA immediately!
I loved this book even more than the first. The world building intensifies — we get to picture the world of Nova in our minds eye. We are given a whole new host of characters to love or hate (some I loved, like Cain!), and most of all, the relationship between Cvareh and Arianna intensifies and becomes an animal all it’s own. My mind was whirring with the descriptions of the buildings and islands suspended in air! I also loved watching the battle between Petra and Yveun play out between their various points of view. Overall, this book gets 4.5 stars from me and I cannot wait for the final installment : REBELS OF GOLD!
