The Gilded Wolves Summary
An instant New York Times best seller.
This program includes a bonus interview with the author.
Set in a darkly glamorous world, New York Times best-selling author Roshani Chokshi's 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 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.
Praise for The Gilded Wolves:
"What’s better than Paris? Nothing. Except, that is, for Roshani Chokshi’s magical Belle Epoque Paris, where a crew of brilliant, tricksy, dispossessed young people are fighting personal demons and powerful foes to carve out their place in the world. This is a book to swan dive into, swim around in, luxuriate in.” (Laini Taylor, New York Times best-selling author of Strange the Dreamer)
"A masterpiece of imagination. Dazzling, sharp, and as dangerous as a freshly polished sword, The Gilded Wolves is a brilliant kaleidoscope of decadent world building, seductive magic, and utterly immersive storytelling." (Stephanie Garber, New York Times best-selling author of Caraval)
