THE GILDED WOLVES by Roshani Chokshi
Ages 12 to 18
Available January 15, 2019 from Wednesday Books
It’s 1889 Paris, and the city is abuzz. The World’s Fair is coming and a new, glimmering tower at the edge of the Siene is under construction. Séverin Montagnet-Alarie owns the L’Eden Hotel, but he was born to hunt treasures. Which is why the all-powerful society, the Order of Babel, chooses him to track down a mysterious ancient artifact. To do so Séverin needs the help of his friends—an eccentric group of experts, each with their own unique speciality.
There’s Leila, a cabaret dancer with secrets of her own;
Enrique, the beautiful historian with a flirty side;
Zofia, the awkward and nerdy engineer extraordinaire;
Tristan, the little brother of the group who annoys the others with his pet tarantula, Goliath;
And Hypnos, the charming outsider whose trustworthiness is more than a little questionable.
This misfit crew is truly a family—they love, fight, laugh, and annoy each other. The ensemble group shines—each with their own motivation and unique perspective, but their stories intertwine beautifully. And OH, THE BANTER. Truly irresistible.
The setting of Gilded Age Paris is lush and glamorous, with magical twists and tricks around every corner. It’s the perfect environment for Séverin and his team to execute their many hijinks. This immersive and incredibly diverse tale is perfect for readers who enjoy action-packed historical fantasies, filled to the brim with magical adventures and flirty tension.
