The Dragons of Nova (Loom Saga #2)
by Elise Kova
Publication Date: July 11, 2017
Publisher: Keymaster Press
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.
This is book two in the Loom Saga which starts out with The Dragons of Loom which is an amazing read in of it self but this is book two we are discussing today and I loved loved it. Elise really ramps up the romance in this book i really felt the room getting hot and steamy which was a great aspect of getting to know the white wraith. This book does an amazing job of explaining exactly who she is and how she has become what she is.
Elise also does an amazing job of drawing you into this world with her descriptions of the dragon world versus the World of Loom and how the guild function as an intricate part of this world.
An example of this is when Cvareh takes Arianna to see the Flower of Agendi-
“It starting – What is? Arianna looked as well, but her answer didn’t come from Cvareh. As the moon reached its apex, the whispering reeds, they’d walked through to the temple slowly straightened. Their egg-shaped ends peeled away, unfurling long petals of red, lined in gold, from within. Their wavy edges tapered to points that curved opposite their center.
A fine mist, like the afterglow of neon, clouded the air above them as the plants’ superfine pollen was released into the wind. The rock before her was awash in light and magic. It sooth her wariness from the day; it gave her strength. She felt as though she could live forever if she laid among them.
Elise waves a magic spell with her descriptions and world building if you love steampunk, dragons and a high fantasy world building this series is for you.
