About the Author
Elise Kova has always had a profound love of fantastical worlds. Somehow, she managed to focus on the real world long enough to graduate with a Master's in Business Administration before crawling back under her favorite writing blanket to conceptualize her next magic system. She currently lives in St. Petersburg, Florida, and when she is not writing can be found playing video games, watching anime, or talking with readers on social media.

A new rebellion is rising on Loom. They no longer will stand for the dragons oppression and seek their freedom from tyranny. While on Nova, many dragons are also fighting their own battle against the current political situation. With both fighting the same enemy, teaming up is the best solution to get everyone what they want. New leaders rise as the final battle is on.
I have loved this series since the first audiobook. I fell into this unique world filled to the brim with magic, interesting characters, and action. Yveun Dono is straight up vicious and a tyrant who wants to rule and be loved. He wants the little fenthri under his boot where he feels they belong, feeling he saved them from themselves. He is not only ruthless to the fenthri but to the dragons that are out of favor as well. He is not a good leader by any means and as we learned sometimes it’s the woman behind the man that is calling the shots and not just his rider leader Leona. Arianna was last seen falling hard from Nova and her run in with him, worse yet an old customer of hers finds her and knows instantly what and who she is and he is always one to spot a deal to be made. Meanwhile Cvareh is still on Nova unaware that his sister, and leader of their house was murdered. And Florence may be young but she is fighting with everything in her to rebuild a better Loom. I love how Florence has really come into her own and become stronger with each book.
This story is full of so many different aspects. The rebellion first and foremost yes but this is a multi-stage process. Getting everyone working together and fighting for the same purpose is a battle in its own right and this goes for both Fenthri and Dragon. Then there is the matter of the perfect chimera and what that would mean for Loom and Nova. Many things will change in the world both good and bad. Alliances are built and broken just as relationships between worlds and characters. I loved how as everything moved forward at a fast pace it also left us room to develop the characters and really lead them into the ending. This world is so full of information and wonder it is hard to leave. The guilds, the houses of Nova, and the magic systems. Serious work has went into this and it shows as everything comes across as so vivid.
I really loved the different POVs and how they gave different perspectives and attitudes to things. Ari is more methodical and rational where as Cvareh may lead with his heart a bit more than her. Flor sees everything with different eyes and has a different take on things with great hope. I also really loved how in each book you got to see a piece from House Rok and each time it moves a bit and you think you know who the real evil is there but each time you learn there is always more to be learned. That was really interesting to me how that continued to play out. I was so excited as everything started to come to a head and I had so many different thoughts about how it might play out and hoping for a happy ending, or at least as happy an ending as one can get with all out war. In the end the story really did leave me with this feeling of contentment. Yes I want more, I’m greedy like that. But I also totally get the ending and it seems like the fit that was meant for the story from the start. It isn’t perfect but it’s perfect for the characters we have and the story that has been told. I loved it and highly recommend this series!
With this being the final book I had lots of expectations of it and I'd say mos of them were met. The characters were still greatly written and you could see how they've changed from how they started, and there's no better example of this than Florence, who is now really making her own decisions and is pretty badass on Rebels. Ari is as strong and fierce as always and I still love Cvareh, although I was a bit sad that there aren't many chapters from his POV, while I love other characters, reading from his perspective was always a joy for me so I missed that. Would have loved a bit more of romance as well and for Ari's treatment of him to have changed some more.
I liked the resolution, but I would have like a bit more of action or more intensity through the book. Not saying the pacing was slow, I truly enjoyed it but, it felt a bit like it ended too quickly because it's only until the last part that the final battle begins, and everything before that was planning.
Still like I said, Rebels of Gold was a great read. Elise's writing is still captivating and her world building is incredible.
It had been wonderful to know the world of Loom, Nova and its characters!
I love this trilogy so much! I'm so very happy with this ending! All of the people I loved the most had to fight for their lives and the lives of others.
I really wish this would be an ongoing series but I am fine enough with this trilogy! The characters are amazing, even the bad people, but we don't care too much for them! And yes, some deaths were sad and that is the nature of fantasy books.
The ending was good enough for me though ♥
With the moon watching, the Wraith and the Dragon stepped into the night together.
