The Alchemists of Loom by Elise Kova
Publisher: Keymaster Press
Expected Date: January 10, 2017
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.
After falling head over heels in love with Elise Kova’s first series, I’m dying to dive into the Loom Saga. Her worldbuilding and writing has grown tremendously and I cannot wait to see where this new story takes me. Ari sounds like such an intriguing character and I love that it’s a steampunk setting. Everything about this book screams, READ ME, and I want to get started on my eARC immediately.
If you’re at all interested in The Alchemists of Loom, Elise is holding the Guild Games to build excitement for the new book, releasing tidbits of info and swag. It’s pretty simple: join one of the five guilds, work together to collect resources, and trade them for rewards. I’ve joined the Rivets Guild but each is equally as exciting as the next.
