This week I am waiting on
The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi
Publication Date: January 15th, 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.
I’ve read both books in Chokshi’s ‘Star-Touched Queen‘ series. So, if there is one thing I am certain of it’s that the writing in this book will be evocative and dreamlike. There is nothing I love more than following a group of people that seem worlds apart, come together for the sake of a job. Each member has a part to play, and it will be interesting to explore the dynamic between these individual’s as they hunt for this mysterious artifact.
What’s your most anticipated book?
