Alchemists of Loom by Elise Kova review

From the creator of Air Awakens series, comes another unique world, a Kick-ass heroine, and a thrilling quest.

Alchemists of Loom. The book started really slow for me. Maybe it is because we are being introduced to another new world that I found it difficult to get sucked into the book, but the first chapters were a bit confusing and rough. Since I was reading on the kindle version, the introductions on the class system they had in this world was not on the first few pages of the copy. So I had no idea what I was getting into, no ‘legend’ to base on what these characters were talking about, how the names of the Dragons should have been said, or what kind of people they are. It was hard to relate to the story those first few parts of the book. (Later, I found these things at the last part of the book – and since I don’t really skip to the last parts when I read, I wished it still placed on the first few pages of the book. I suggest you look into that before starting this one to help you get into the story.)

Further into the book though, I had the hang of it. Though still barely grasping this new world, you will get the gist of the quest and will get fond of our new heroes.

A Dragon King’s reign, a dragon’s dream world, and a woman’s vengeance. This book has a lot of twists and surprises. Don’t forget the author’s penchant for cliffhangers because she will really make you curious for what comes next.

I must say Elise Kova has a knack of creating new worlds. Definitely a world young adult and fantasy seekers out there should venture into.
