Cvareh returns home to his sky world of Nova with the genius crafter Arianna as his temperamental guest. The mercurial inventor possesses all the Xin family needs to turn the tides of a centuries-old power struggle, but the secrets she harbors must be earned with trust — hard to come by for Ari, especially when it comes to Dragons. On Nova, Ari finds herself closer to exacting vengeance against the traitor who killed everything — and everyone – she once loved. But before Ari can complete her campaign of revenge, the Crimson Court exposes her shadowed past and reveals something even more dangerous sparking between her and Cvareh.

While Nova is embroiled in blood sport and political games, the rebels on Loom prepare for an all-out assault on their Dragon oppressors. Florence unexpectedly finds herself at the forefront of change, as her unique blend of skills — and quick-shooting accuracy — makes her a force to be reckoned with. For the future of her world, she vows vengeance against the Dragons.

Before the rebellion can rise, though, the Guilds must fall.

Ohhh Dragons of Nova! I wish I had written my review before I read the last few chapters of the book because now I can’t unread what I read.

The world in these books is vast and becomes even more so now that we spend our time on Nova. I loved reading about Ruana. It was interesting to see the Dragon world and it gives you a different view of Loom as well.

So the characters. Very strong woman in this series and it’s crazy how there are characters that I hate but love at the same time. Just because the way they are written.

My favorite characters are probably Petra and Florence. They are fierce figures who are thinking of the great purpose. It would probably be more beneficial for them to team up. They are not fueled by so much revenge and blind hate. They are more calculating and think about their actions. Florence really steps up in this book and it made me happy to see that. We also get more insight on the workings of Petra.

Arianna is a jerk. I just can’t make myself fully like her. I understand that she is a broken person and that Cvareh can see this. He gives her everything and she always seems to take. I hope that he can help her in the end. Her blind rage and arrogance cost Cvareh more than he deserves. I do love him though. He is so dedicated to his house, his family and his love. He’s willing to see things that he might not have understood before. He is open as much as Ari is closed off.

I also love Cain.

The Dono and his wife are a crazy scary couple that’s for sure. I love to hate them though. They are so scary ruthless. It makes them interesting. I of course do not want them to win, when all is set and done.

I think we learn more of the politics as well. Especially with the way that Loom and the Dragons work together. Of course the current rule is oppressive but there is also potential mixed in there as well. I like that it’s shown that Loom was not perfect before and they have learned things along the way as well.

Ahh so much. SO MUCH HAPPENS! I can’t even sum it up and I wouldn’t want to spoil anything anyway. I think I did like this book more than the first and I can’t wait to see what happens next. I need to know what’s going to happen next.

If you enjoy fantasy that is descriptive and sprawling in its world. I recommend this for you. It also has characters that are like prisms, full of many colors and depth.

Just as a side note. I really enjoy these books as audiobooks. I combined my reading in both ways. I think the audio does well to give you a stronger grasp of the world. I’m not sure why but that’s just how it works for me.
