Elise Kova breathes new life into the steampunk genre.
I've always adored steampunk. It's the perfect mix of technology ingenuity and magic, setting fire to our imaginations and testing reality's boundaries.
But after reading books from the genre for such a long time, one starts to develop a 'sixth sense' - an irksome feeling that you know all there is to know about a genre. You're no longer wowed by dirigibles or by goggles with cogs. You find patterns in use, authors borrowing from other authors. Nothing seems original anymore.
Elise Kova's steampunk world - Loom, Dragons, Guilds and all their magic - is such a refreshing change of pace. It's vivid, new, and filled with inventions and concepts that will have your mind whirring with possibilities. And it's latest addition, The Dragons of Nova, is just as utterly spellbinding as its predecessor.
A big thank you to Keymaster Press and Elise Kova for the chance to review this incredible book.
Read on for my thoughts on The Dragons of Nova (as well as my favourite quote from te book!).
