Set in a darkly glamorous world 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 that 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.

This book took me a long time to finish, but I'm glad I did. 3⭐ mostly from the plot being confusing- I liked the characters though! And the cover is a work of art

I haven't been posting much on here, but I have been reading a lot!! 😊😁📚

Took some "me days" from work this week to recharge myself. Going to get some cleaning done later but for now, all I want is to chill with a book and some TV.

Today my boyfriend and I went and got a library card for his local library since I‘ve moved up with him for the summer and I got these two books, the one below is tagged, and I can‘t wait to start them! I‘ve heard lots of good things about The Bride Test on here!

I was excited about this one, but ended up not really feeling it. I never got invested in the characters and all their (way too many) quirks. Most likely will not continue with this trilogy unless desperate for reading material.

I told myself I‘d buy one, I ended up with six. 👀 Wellll, let‘s not go there. 😂 Currently reading “The Gilded Wolves” - its magic realism seems enchanting at the moment but I read only thirty pages while on the tube. So we‘ll see. 🤓

Story wise this book had me semi interested, but the characters are what kept me reading. I found each one fascinating and I fell in love with Severin and Tristan (oh Tristan you poor baby boy you) it wasn‘t the best thing I have ever read but I enjoyed the witty dialog. Now to take a much needed break from YA books as they haven‘t been all that great lately for me.

Starting this one now, (well technically picking it back up, I started it two weeks ago) but hopefully this can redeem my day of reading. I was told this is a YA book that has a MALE lead character and I have been searching for a YA book that has just that. I have to admit I really prefer reading stories centered around male leads, this isn‘t a shot at female leads they just bore more than anything. For me, Male characters get better stories.

GripLitGrl Thanks for entering & good luck! ☺🍀 I enjoyed it. I haven't gotten to write my review yet but the author created a unique fantasy world that really played off the dust jacket & book cover brilliantly. I loved the bit of geek factor & diversity in the charecters as well. 3mo

For a book chosen solely for the cover, this was an unexpected treat. I enjoyed the diverse group of characters in a YA alternate steampunk history. I‘ll be continuing this series for sure.

Tagged book has A Male Mc for YA and I‘m excited to read it. But I have a question regarding #YAbooks & I‘m hoping my #litsy family can help answer.

Are there other #YAFantasy books that follow a MALE MC? Every single one I have ever picked up follows a female & tbh I am not a fan of YA, but I am trying to expand, but I‘m getting burnt out on all the same female MC tropes. The only other one I know is King of Scars, which I have.

Shley9225 Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo has 4. And if you find more let me know! I‘ve been annoyed by this problem recently as well 3mo
Sweetkokoro @Shley9225 I will check that one out. Also I‘m glad I‘m not the only one annoyed by this. I just don‘t understand why YAfantasy is like this, It needs more variety. (plus I personally prefer male MCs haha. ) 3mo

A group of misfits in a magical version of Paris before1889 world exhibition. I liked the magic and I liked the characters. The heist parts were the least strong for me, which is strange because I love a good heist story.

Sylvilel I think it‘s because Chokshi was out on her depth with the action parts. They were messily written and hard to follow. The more domestic, day-to-day-like scenes felt a lot more authentic, possibly because Chokshi is more comfortable with that kind of writing. 3mo

Bit of a mix between The Parasol Protectorate and Firefly; you have the crew of competent, diverse characters, all with their own agendas; the dangerous heists to aquire certain artefacts; the archeological aspects; the magitech; the starcrossed lovers; the dandy benefactor with a partialty towards beautiful men - and of course the balls, the chandeliers, the wine, the food and the deadly underground order out to kill all in it‘s way.

Well, this was kind of a hot mess. I really liked it in the beginning but it quickly became difficult to figure out what was going on. The terminology is confusing, and the story is too rich with over descriptive history. I think the plot itself would be entertaining if the execution were to be cleaner.
I'm generously giving it 2 stars because of the unique plot line.

Sylvilel I agree. It could have been really, really good if only it was pieced better together. 3mo

Can‘t tell u the basics of the plot b/c it was so confusing & vague that my brain is like WAT. Somehow there was a lot of explanation yet NOTHING WAS EXPLAINED, not well at least. Was so lost thru the whole thing. I liked the characters (mostly) & appreciate the setting & imagery, but she needed to peel back a few layers of this book-onion b/c it was too convoluted to enjoy. & u don‘t need to use every mythology ever. Mostly a letdown. 2/5 ⭐️

I‘ve never needed to escape into a book more than I do right now, even though it probably won‘t really work for even a minute. But it‘s better than sitting here staring into space and falling apart. I‘m going through some really horrible shit and it‘s not going to get better any time soon, so please think a good thought or say a prayer for me, if that‘s your thing. It won‘t make things any easier but I guess it can‘t hurt, either. 😞 #nowreading

CaliforniaCay I hope you feel better soon. When I was recently having hard time, I found I couldn't escape into a regular book - couldn't concentrate. But I found a couple of comic like books really helped get my mind off of things. Kind of coping and Adulthood is a Myth were both quick easy reads that were funny and relatable. 4mo

So, that book I was willing to move heaven and Earth to read? I'm thinking that I shouldn't have bothered. A little dull, and unevenly written. Not bad enough to quit reading, but I'm thinking not good enough to continue with the series unless things pick up dramatically.

I do recognize that this is a rhetorical question in this group, but did you ever read the blurb of a book and think, "I will move heaven and Earth to read this as soon as possible."? That's how I felt when I read about this book. Fantasy, secret society, Belle Epoque France, all my candy in one place. I'm going to begin it tonight when I go to bed.

Any book that gets tons of hype and praise always makes me a teensy bit apprehensive but this first in a planned trilogy is fantastic. Set in a magical 1889 Paris and following a cohort of teenagers out to save or change the world, depending on who you ask, The Gilded Wolves is well-paced, doesn‘t spend too much time world-building and leaves lots of questions about this alternate world and our own.
