Blog Tour ARC Review+Giveaway: "The Alchemists of Loom" (The Loom Saga #1) by Elise Kova


The Alchemists of Loom
Elise Kova
(Loom Saga #1)
Publication date: January 10th 2017
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult
Her vengeance. His vision.
Ari lost everything she once loved when the Five Guilds’ resistance fell to the Dragon King. Now, she uses her unparalleled gift for clockwork machinery in tandem with notoriously unscrupulous morals to contribute to a thriving underground organ market. There isn’t a place on Loom that is secure from the engineer turned thief, and her magical talents are sold to the highest bidder as long as the job defies their Dragon oppressors.
Cvareh would do anything to see his sister usurp the Dragon King and sit on the throne. His family’s house has endured the shame of being the lowest rung in the Dragons’ society for far too long. The Alchemist Guild, down on Loom, may just hold the key to putting his kin in power, if Cvareh can get to them before the Dragon King’s assassins.
When Ari stumbles upon a wounded Cvareh, she sees an opportunity to slaughter an enemy and make a profit off his corpse. But the Dragon sees an opportunity to navigate Loom with the best person to get him where he wants to go.
He offers her the one thing Ari can’t refuse: A wish of her greatest desire, if she brings him to the Alchemists of Loom.



REVIEW

I received an e-ARC in exchange for an honest review. 

Elise Kova has proved herself as a fantasy author who know how to make her readers love and cry over her characters. Her debut series "Air Awakens" could only be comapred to the Throne of Glass books at least for me.

The Alchemists of Loom is her new series which takes place in a world where the Dragons rule and everyone live in faction which work in order to produce everything the Dragons need. Ari lives as a thief but her encounter with Cvareh will make her change her life and embark in an adventure through all of Loom.

Told through four POVs, this book has Japanese elements as also pretty awesome steampunk details which make the world-building even more fascinating! Arin, Cvareh and Florence are amazing characters with flaws and wonderful dialogue and through their eyes we get a glimpse of how their world was and how it became after the Dragons conquered Loom.

There is also a hint of romance which is delivered masterfully, though I hope it'll be more developed in the sequel. If you like steampunk and fantasy then you really don't want to miss this book!



Author Bio:
Elise Kova has always had a profound love of fantastical worlds. Somehow, she managed to focus on the real world long enough to graduate with a Master’s in Business Administration before crawling back under her favorite writing blanket to conceptualize her next magic system. She currently lives in St. Petersburg, Florida, and when she is not writing can be found playing video games, watching anime, or talking with readers on social media. She is the USA Today bestselling author of the Air Awakens Series as well as the upcoming Loom Saga (Keymaster, 2017).
