This is a feature started on Breaking the Spine that puts the spotlight on upcoming books. Again, been awhile since I’ve done one of these but if you know me at all, you know I have a deep love for Elise Kova and her books. I definitely want to be talking about her newest work now that the Air Awakens series is officially over. So this week, I want to share The Alchemists of Loom by Elise Kova!
Title: The Alchemists of Loom (Loom Saga #1)
Authors: Elise Kova
Expected Publication: January 10th, 2017
Synopsis: 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.
First off all, that cover *heart eyes* If that doesn’t make you want to read it then I don’t know what will because it’s amazing! Second of all, it sounds so good and I’d expect nothing less from her. (Ps. if you haven’t read the Air Awakens series yet, get on that!!) And third, Elise is hosting this really cool game right now that has to do with the guilds in The Alchemists of Loom. You can find out what guild you are in (through a Buzzfeed quiz here), earn points and get super awesome rewards. You should definitely check it out here at: The Guild Games!
