Blog Tour Review + Giveaway - The Dragons of Nova (Loom Saga #2) byElise Lova

Publisher: Keymaster Press
Pub. Date:July 11,2017
Genre: Fantasy
Source: Print ARC
Rating: 3.5 Stars

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.

I'm not even going to lie, the first book was hellacious for me to get through. I almost gave up like a hundred times. But I pushed on because I know the author is damn talented. I think I was expecting something a little more on the lines of her Air Awakens series which was high the romance and angst. Alas, Kova has proved she can write more than just a love story. (Not that Air Awakens wasn't more. It just had everything I love in spades!)

Now onto the second book. Where does this leave me since I didn't exactly love the first book? Well, I must say, Dragons of Loom was so much more interesting to me. I felt like something was definitely off about the first book, but in the second story, I feel like I connected more to the characters and to the story as a whole. Ari is still as bad ass as ever and Cvareh is such a worthy hero. Am I ready for the next book? You betcha. The story has everything a reader can want in order to keep them engaged.
