Description

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, Severin Montagnet-Alarie. But when the all-powerful society, the Order of Babel, seeks him out for help, Severin is offered a treasure that he never imagined: his true inheritance. To find the ancient artifact the Order seeks, Severin 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.

Review quote

"Evocative writing, sumptuous set pieces, and vividly sketched, authentically flawed characters distinguish this immersive tale of found family and star-crossed romance. Kaleidoscopic narration complements the intricate, high-stakes plot and allows Chokshi to showcase numerous aspects of her richly imagined universe all the way to the closing cliff-hanger." - Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

"Leigh Bardugo's Six of Crows and Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code converge in this dazzling new fantasy... An opulent heist adventure that will leave readers voracious for more." - Kirkus, Starred Review

"Chokshi delivers a thrilling, gritty new fantasy set in an alternate nineteenth century Paris... Chokshi shines as a master storyteller in her newest novel; the setting, world building, plot, and conflict are all staggering. However, the elements that perhaps shine the most are the history, riddles, mysteries, and science, woven together in a world brimming with power and magic." - Booklist, Starred Review

"A gorgeously layered story, with characters that make you laugh and ache and cheer." - Ren e Ahdieh, New York Times bestselling author of The Wrath and The Dawn

"A masterpiece of imagination. You will want this book to steal your heart so that you will never have to leave this story." Stephanie Garber, New York Times bestselling author of Caraval

"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 is part political misadventure, part puzzle and thoroughly charming, with a band of rapscallions and a string of surprises!" - Holly Black, New York Times bestselling author of The Cruel Prince

"The Gilded Wolves is the smart, dark adventure YA readers have been waiting for." - Adrienne Young, New York Times bestselling author of Sky In The Deep

"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
