Description of this Book

Set in a darkly glamorous world The Gilded Wolves is full of mystery, decadence and dangerous but thrilling adventure. Paris, 1889: The world is on the cusp of industry and power, and the Exposition Universelle has breathed new life into the streets and dredged up ancient secrets. In this city, no one keeps tabs on secrets better than treasure-hunter and wealthy hotelier, S verin Montagnet-Alarie. But when the all-powerful society, the Order of Babel, seeks him out for help, S verin is offered a treasure that he never imagined: his true inheritance. To find the ancient artifact the Order seeks, S verin will need help from a band of experts: An engineer with a debt to pay. A historian who can't yet go home. A dancer with a sinister past. And a brother in all but blood, who might care too much. Together, they'll have to use their wits and knowledge to hunt the artifact through the dark and glittering heart of Paris. What they find might change the world, but only if they can stay alive.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review With The Gilded Wolves, Roshani Chokshi has given readers a gorgeously layered story, with characters that make you laugh and ache and cheer. The world-building is astounding, filled with the kind of wonderful imagery I look for in my favorite kinds of fantasies. But even more than that, this is a wholly transportive read, dynamic until the very end. I adored this book. - Renee Ahdieh, New York Times bestselling author of The Wrath and The Dawn What's better than Paris? Nothing. Except, that is, for Roshani Chokshi's magical Belle Epoque Paris, where a crew of brilliant, tricksy, dispossessed young people are fighting personal demons and powerful foes to carve out their place in the world. This is a book to swan dive into, swim around in, luxuriate in. Trust me, you won't want to come out - Laini Taylor, New York Times bestselling author of Strange The Dreamer The Gilded Wolves has it all: magical Belle poque Paris, dark and glittering prose, a cast of characters that will steal your heart inside their other heists. This is a book I wish I'd written. - Ryan Graudin, award-winning author of Wolf By Wolf
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 2 stars (out of 5)
