Stars for THE GILDED WOLVES!

We’re thrilled that Roshani Chokshi’s newest YA fantasy, THE GILDED WOLVES, has received four starred reviews!

A thrilling, gritty new fantasy set in an alternate nineteenth-century Paris, where old secrets and even older magic reside . . . Chokshi shines as a master storyteller in her newest novel; the setting, world building, plot, and conflict are all staggering.”
Booklist, starred review

“Chokshi has created an inclusive and authentic cast with obvious chemistry and affection for one another and infuses the tale with witty banter and twists . . . A delectably intriguing adventure for all teen shelves.” —School Library Journal, starred review

“Leigh Bardugo’s SIX OF CROWS and Dan Brown’s THE DA VINCI CODE converge in this dazzling new fantasy . . . Chokshi creatively reimagines history, weaving fantastical elements with symbology and broadening the scope of her narrative by integrating multiethnic worldviews. An opulent heist adventure that will leave readers voracious for more.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

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
