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

Dec 5, 2017 Updates:

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

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

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

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.

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

has outdone herself. This is the final installment in the Loom Saga and it was a complete rollercoaster ride from the beginning until the end. Right from the first page you are thrown right back into the action where the second book left off. All our three main characters have their own battles to fight in the hope to restore balance to Loom and Nova.

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

Okay, I've got mixed bag of feelings about this book. It was a good finale to this trilogy but it really wasn't a mind blowing one. I expected this finale to be fully action packed but the story moved in a slow pace which was a bit disappointing and the main action is found at the end of the book. Although I had issue with the pacing, the story never failed to hold my interest.  The characters were pretty good. Besides

I have pushed off writing this review for a couple of days, I really don't want to do this. In fact, I don't really like thinking back on this book and my reading experience. But since my goal is to review every book that I read this year on Goodreads I have to do this... So here we go.

Had you asked me a year ago if I would ever give an Elise Kova book less than 5 stars I would have said a very firm no. Then I read The Dragons of Nova and I gave that book 4 stars because of some issues that I ha

3.5 stars rounded up.

I liked it well enough. There was a bit of purple prose here and there, and the romantic end seemed a bit melodramatic, but overall it was a good fantasy story.

can i get an uuuuuuhhhhhhhhh i didn’t love this and i’m not sure how to feel about that!!!!!!!!!

i did like it, i just didn’t love it?? this was a ~solid~ conclusion. i say ~solid~ because everything was wrapped up super nicely by the end of the book but it kind of left me feeling a little unsatisfied. truth be told, i feel like victory was obtained way too easily—considering the stakes the characters were up against, the nature of the villains, and the dangerous world they live in,
The journey itself was lovely, but I was sorely disappointed by Ari's lack of growth as a character. Until the very end, never admitting what she felt, after being asked multiple times. Disappearing from someone who meant so much to her. Wanting from life but not actively choosing a place to belong. Someone who was key to the revolution on both Loom and Nova, having what in my view was no real aim or purpose. Just, GAH. Florence turned out nicely though.

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

It has been almost 5 months since I've read the Dragons of Nova, & I had no trouble jumping right back into this world. What I expected was a wild ride. What I expected was alliances formed to gain an upper hand, deception for the same reason, to be left heartbroken and emotionally invested in every single word written. What I didn't expect was for all that to happen within the first few chapters.

The writing in this series just keeps getting better and better. Visually Elise puts you right t

I kind of feel the fight scenes were somewhat anticlimactic. It was still very good though, but the characters were still as ruthless and cutthroat as ever. I enjoyed this one alot more than I did Dragons of Nova though ❤.

I'm definitely going to miss the characters. The character development was fantastic, and seeing them come into their own is so satisfying.
