Source: I received an eARC of this book from the publisher via Netgalley for the blog tour in exchange for an honest review.
This book was enjoyable but not as much as I wanted it to. Although the action and the adventure were quite something which kept my steady attention to this book.
After the dragons seized over Arianna’s lands, she lost everything. Now she finally has a new hope to usurp the Dragons with the help of a dragon himself, Cvareh who has a motive of his own. Both of them want the same thing but can two mortal enemies trust each other to reach their destiny?
I enjoyed the plot of this book. Although the starting was pretty slow and confusing, everything started to weave together as the chapters proceeded. Ari is one of the most feared personas in the Loom, but only two of the people know her identity as the White Wraith. I liked how everything was executed. I enjoyed the worldbuilding and learning about all the different races and the magic.
All the characters were pretty interesting but it felt difficult to connect with them, especially Ari. Nonetheless, she was skilled in her art and her perseverance was noteworthy. I loved Florence, she was a mixture of a lot of qualities that I really enjoyed. And then we have Cvareh, he was quite an interesting character that I want to know more of. Lastly, the plot twist was quite epic! I definitely liked it and I sooo want to know what happens after this.
Overall, The Alchemists of Loom was an enjoyable read. I liked the plot and the characters though I would have liked it more if everything was a bit more explained at the beginning. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the action part of this book very much. The writing was smooth and the pace was even throughout the book. I definitely look forward to reading the next book in this series.
Elise Kova has always had a profound love of fantastical worlds. Somehow, she managed to focus on the real world long enough to graduate with a Master’s in Business Administration before crawling back under her favorite writing blanket to conceptualize her next magic system. 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).
