‘The Alchemists of Loom’ (Loom Saga, #1) by Elise Kova

5 stars!

Elise Kova, talented author of the elemental magic series ‘Air Awakens’ introduces us to a new world full of magic, dragons, and political intrigue.  Part steampunk, part action-adventure, ‘The Loom Saga’ takes place in an extremely developed alternate world of Loom and its land-above-the-clouds, Nova.  Kova has seamlessly integrated steampunk inventions with dragons, chimera, and a third new species, called Fenthri, into a clear to follow and fast-paced plot.

‘The Alchemists of Loom’ is narrated, primarily, by three main characters; Arianna (Chimera), Cvareh Xin (dragon), and Florence (Fenthri).  Each is fully developed; their thoughts and motivations easy to understand and agree with, despite some hidden agendas thrown in for good measure.  The different narrations blend together perfectly to provide readers with a more complete picture of the story than each character possesses on their own. 

I recommend this magical adventure to any reader who enjoys dragons, steampunk, and fantasy.  ‘The Alchemists of Loom’ will be available from your favorite bookseller on January 10, 2017.

Thanks to Elise Kova and NetGalley for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
