The Gilded Wolves (The Gilded Wolves #1)
by Roshani Chokshi
Hitting shelves January 15, 2019
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, Séverin Montagnet-Alarie. But when the all-powerful society, the Order of Babel, seeks him out for help, Séverin is offered a treasure that he never imagined: his true inheritance. To find the ancient artifact the Order seeks, Séverin 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.
Why I’m waiting on The Gilded Wolves:
Paris, 1889 was enough to get me to add this one to my must-read list. I’m such a sucker for historical fiction so I would have picked this one up even if the summary didn’t completely capture my attention. But it did. Everything about this sounds fantastic and January cannot get here soon enough.
