Review

**New York Times Bestseller**

**Indie Next Pick for the Winter 2018-2019 Kid’ List!**

“Reading Chokshi’s prose is like sinking deeply into the overstuffed arms of a plush, purple velvet sofa. Her lavish descriptions of extravagant dinner parties, furtive meetings and daring escapes wrap you in sumptuous sensory detail...this ingenious take on colonialism and cultural appropriation is wildly inventive and wildly representative.” -
The New York Times Book 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

“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

“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

“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

“In this delicious first entry in a new series from a veteran YA author, readers will find sumptuous visuals, deep characters and a maddening eleventh-hour twist.”
― BOOKPAGE, Starred Review

5.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't step away from this story, even when I was away from the book.
Reviewed in Canada 🇨🇦 on January 23, 2019
Content Warnings: Physical and Emotional Abuse, Racism (addressed), Colourism (addressed), Sexism (addressed).

The Gilded Wolves is one of the best books I've ever read. It's so meticulously crafted that, reading it feels like watching a painter carefully create a masterpiece on a once blank canvas. It's a gem of a book, and I am so glad I had the chance to read it.

There wasn't a moment I was bored while reading this. I was on the edge of my seat, always hungry for more details, desperate to know what would happen next. It left me speechless with its twists and turns, and how it brought together every thread of its plot by the end.

At the end, there was a feeling of sadness and happiness wrapped together. I was sad to read the last lines, to close the book of characters that had made a home so deep in my heart for themselves. But I was happy, too. I was happy I got to read a book so well written. I was happy that I was so easily whisked away on a path of words sewn together to transport me. I felt refreshed after reading The Gilded Wolves. It was an odd sort of feeling, but one I liked nonetheless.

There is #Ownvoices rep for Indian, Filipino, and Biracial rep. I don't know if there's #Ownvoices rep for any of the characters' sexuality or mental health.

In The Gilded Wolves, with Laila, I can't speak to her South Indian rep since I am Central/North Indian. I can only say that I found the rep of Laila as an Indian and an Immigrant to be very accurate to my experience as an Indian and an Immigrant. Laila is the Mum™ of the squad and makes sure everyone eats on time while also kicking ass and being an all around Rani (Queen). Reading her character is like watching a star come alive.

Séverin is Algerian-French, the smartest cookie who just needs to tell people how he feels. Zofia is Autistic, has anxiety and is Jewish-Polish, and an absolute freaking Bean™ who I would sacrifice anything for. I adore her to bits. Hypnos is Haitian and Queer, and stole my heart from the minute we were introduced to him. Which, of course he did. He's Hypnos. Enrique is Spanish-Filipino, and a Historian who will always have a special place in my heart because this boy deserves the world. Tristan is my little baby boy who I just want to protect with my entire life and hold so he doesn't feel alone. The Most Innocent and Soft Bean™ ever.

I don't want to go into spoilers yet because it has been out for less than a week, and it's just unfair to do that, but I can tell you that if you read The Gilded Wolves, you won't regret it.

I received an ARC from Wednesday Books in exchange for an honest review.

Format: Audiobook 🎧

I ended up enjoying this way more than I thought I would (not that I thought I would hate it lol) and it turned out to be an emotional roller-coaster which I always love. If a book can make me laugh and cry, it's always a good one!

So I've seen this described as Six of Crows crossed with The Da Vinci Code and that is 100% accurate. But I believe it still stands on its own. We have a cast of loveable characters, whose banter had me laughing out loud at times, a beautiful Paris setting, and the interesting introduction to the concept of Forging, which is a sort of magic/small science type thing that some people are born with, allowing them to manipulate objects or people.

Severin (please excuse my spelling, I listened to the audiobooks, and the names are not English), is the Kaz character, the leader of the pack and ideas man, trying to win back his stolen Inheritance of a place in the Order of Babel who govern the world and history of Forging. Together with his foster brother Tristan, courtesan Laila, engineer Zofia, and historian Enrique, they embark on a heist to claim a powerful Babel fragment before anyone else can find it, using a mix of cunning and problem-solving skills.

I think this book will appeal to almost any YA fantasy lover, especially those who like clever and funny stories. I'm looking forward to continuing the series after a cracker of an ending in this one.
