This batch of goodies weren't as good as the second books goodies and I got the same card I got from the first books goodies. But at least there are goodies =D

OMG! It was so good! I knew it would be!

I'm so happy with that ending!

I mean there were people that died from both sides. People I was happy to see die and not so happy but that's the way it goes.

I love, love, love, Arianna, Florence and Cvareh. There are more but those are the main ones. They are bad @ssed and just plain awesome! And

This might be my favorite book of the entire series.

Characters, or more so my reactions to them throughout the book:
Ari: I love this girl she’s always trying to see the bigger picture and getting herself out of sticky situations.
Cverah: He's just doing the best he can. Poor guy lost his sister and had to assume a role he never wanted. Sidebar - The plan to announce that Finnyr defeated Petra, who the fuck in the Xin House actually believed that pathetic, disloyal Finnyr defeated a boss ass que

The Rebels of Gold is a great end to a great series.

4 Stars

I’m finding this review harder to write than the previous two because I liked all the same things! The dragons and their magic system were super interesting. The worlds (both Loom and Nova) were unique and so different from the type of society I live in and am used to reading about. The characters were intriguing. The plot continued along really well.

I also had the same dislike though, which was that I still didn’t love all the POVs. I just never really warmed up to Florence. I als

Originally I was basically 100% going to go to the first signing on Dec 05, for it was within walking distance to where I live. Unfortunately, my finals week had always been the week after that event, with the fact that neither my swag nor my pre-ordered book arrived before the said event, it was impossible for me to enjoy the full duration of what the event was meant for. =/ For people who'd still gone, hope you had fun!

Satisfying ending to Elise Kova's steampunk trilogy. I enjoyed this book about the same amount as the previous two instalments. This series is constant in that way, which means that if you liked the first book, you're going to like all three of them, or the other way around. I stil 100% prefer Air Awakens series to this, even though Loom Saga is definitely written in a superior way in comparison to Kova's first series. It's just something about this world buidling and pacing and characters (even ...more

Down on Loom the guilds may have been almost destroyed but those who remain haven't given up on their rebellion, in fact they're now even more determined to get their revenge. Ari and Florence are in the thick of things trying to create a new weapon that will be strong enough to defeat the dragons but they're battling a powerful enemy and they've already seen first hand the price of failure.

Meanwhile, back on Nova Cvareh is trying to hold his family together after the death of his sister, he nev

This book is hard for me to review. I enjoyed reading this, but I was not as invested in the story as I was during the first two books of the series. I am not sure what put a damper on my fulfillment this time around. I really can't fathom it because the book was overall satisfying and I cannot pinpoint any specific thing that I necessarily disliked.

The world building in this book was equally as vivid as the previous two books. Kova really

The Rebels of Gold was a great conclusion to the Loom Saga, a series that I think is vastly underrated.

I'm particularly sad to see this series end, and would love to see a spin-off series set on Loom or Nova. Elise Kova's fantasy world that she's built is so expansive, and has a lot to offer story-telling wise. One of my favorite things about this book was getting to know more about Loom, the ground-world, steampunk-esque society divided into five guilds.

I can't say what this book is about for

So...I wasn't sure what to expect with this book but I went in with really high expectations, because this is Elise Kova of course. Needless to say, I think a lot of them were met. However, this is the first time I'm giving one of her books four stars instead of five.

I love the characters. I love Arianna, even more than Vhalla. This ended in such a way though that I didn't feel completely satisfied. There was so much build up and it was very drawn out, but then it ended so quickly. There was a c

This book ended up being a huge disappointment for me, and my hopes weren’t even that high to begin with.

The issues I have with this book (and what I remember of the other books as well) is that it needed more editing, on every level. From how the story progressed to the development of the characters, individual scenes, repeated ideas within paragraphs of each other, repeated words, and to an entire sentence lacking spaces. This book was a bit of a mess and read more like an early draft than a

My first impressions of The Rebels of Gold were "oh my goodness I can't believe the series is over what am I going to do with my life" in a very stream-of-consciousness manner. But I waited to write my review until I had a chance to think about it a bit more post-read, once all those emotions died down and it went so far as to changed my rating.

The Dragons of Nova rocked all of Loom and left a revolution in the making down below while above the clouds in Nova, the scheming of a few individua

the second book was so strong and then this one just didnt hold my attention :( i thought Flo's storyline really fell flat for me especially the romance that took place completely off screen. give me the same level of angst that Cvareh + Arianna have. AGH.

Out of all three books I would say this is my least favorite but it was still satisfying. I just personally didn't like how the story itself and how it progressed. It just felt, i don't know off. I think my biggest issue with this book is that yes we follow the three main characters of Ari, Cvareh, and Flo but in each book there were new POVs some that make big appearances throughout and some that fell to the way side, if any of that makes sense. I don't want to say to much for spoiler reasons.

GA! :D

Florence is such a bad ass lady! I love how much we got to see her and how we got to continuously compare her and Florence with them being in the same place. I absolutely LOVED getting to see Florence with a romance! She took the plunge opening up to someone who could've betrayed her--but more impressively it was a move that Arianna would've advocated against. FLORENCE IS ALL GROWN UP! *tear with smile*

I loved how this book wrapped up. It was bloody

The Rebels of Gold is the third and final installment in the Loom Saga by author Elise Kova. The author alternate's her story through four main characters; Arianna, Florence, Cvareh, and Coletta. I am pretty sure the cover is supposed to reflect Florence as we have already had Ari, and Cvareh in the previous two installments. I have a whole lot of mixed feelings about this story and the way it finally wraps up. The most interesting part of thi

The last book has always had the power to make me LOVE a series that had a bumpy journey or HATE a book that was good at the beginning. This book would’ve got a full five stars if we didn’t have this constant squabble and meaningless fights with the side characters (who are in no place to judge the actions of the MC who literally was leading the previous rebellion)
Also, there is a way to reduce toxic masculinity without rendering every male character useless. I had a hunch while reading the firs

The Rebels of Gold is the third and final installment of Elise Kova's Loom Saga. Tim Campbell and Erin Moon return for the audiobook version to give us the voices of our main protagonists. I definitely like these two together!

I really loved this series because it is such a unique concept. Also no humans in a fantasy world! That is so interesting to me. I do think maybe this book was a bit too long, there were parts where I wa

I put this off for so long that I was scared I wasn't going to be attached to the characters as much as I was before but.... I had nothing to fear! I was immediately sucked back into the Loom obsessed soul I was from the first page and I couldn't have asked for a better conclusion to this fantastic and magical series. I listened to the audiobook so it was a brand new experience for me and let's just say that the voice for my handsome husband, Cva, was just as sexy as Cva himself. It made me shiv ...more

This was a nice solid conclusion to the series, wrapping up most of the loose threads in a rewarding way.
when you can skip whole chapters and not really miss crucial plot, it’s not great, bob.
