Vetter herself says, “With all the events that are so polarizing in the news today, I wanted to do something that reminded us of the things that do draw us together.”
Now let’s talk about my giveaway contribution for #BooksBindUs!
I’ve decided on the first two books of Elise Kova’s Loom Saga: The Alchemists of Loom and The Dragons of Nova. Personally, I have a huge love for both the science fiction and fantasy genres! I think these two books portray the perfect fusion of steampunk sci-fi and fantastical magic. Best of both worlds, if you will.
To give you an idea of what the story is actually about, here’s the synopsis for The Alchemists of Loom:
Her vengeance. His vision.
Ari lost everything she once loved when the Five Guilds’ resistance fell to the Dragon King. Now, she uses her unparalleled gift for clockwork machinery in tandem with notoriously unscrupulous morals to contribute to a thriving underground organ market. There isn’t a place on Loom that is secure from the engineer turned thief, and her magical talents are sold to the highest bidder as long as the job defies their Dragon oppressors.
Cvareh would do anything to see his sister usurp the Dragon King and sit on the throne. His family’s house has endured the shame of being the lowest rung in the Dragons’ society for far too long. The Alchemist Guild, down on Loom, may just hold the key to putting his kin in power, if Cvareh can get to them before the Dragon King’s assassins.
When Ari stumbles upon a wounded Cvareh, she sees an opportunity to slaughter an enemy and make a profit off his corpse. But the Dragon sees an opportunity to navigate Loom with the best person to get him where he wants to go.
He offers her the one thing Ari can’t refuse: A wish of her greatest desire, if she brings him to the Alchemists of Loom.
