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.
Elise Kova nails it out of the park with a strong start to her second series. The story starts off with an intense opening scene where Ari is living up to her reputation of the "White Wraith". This intense opener grabbed me and I loved it.
I want to talk about using multiple points of view in books. Now this story has a few and they're all unique to the character we're reading from. They bring out the individuals personalities that make them stand out. We have moments of snark, lust and longing. The problems of not remembering what happens when isn't a problem, as their stories are continuously woven together.
One thing that makes Elise's novels stand out is the scenery. The crispness of the color, the buildings and character descriptions are one of the things that make me keep wanting more. This with well rounded characters that have a rich, deep personalities encompasses the beautiful novel.
Many times when we hear steampunk technology being used, we picture the Victorian Era of history. Well, there's no history involved and the technology is magical, literally too. Magic in entwined into the rich story and world.
The world isn't ready for what Ari is going to do to their bookshelves, but it's safe to say, that it'll blow your mind.
Ari, Florence, Cvareh and Leona are waiting for you.

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).
