  • Indulge in this amazing book!

    This is my first read from Roshani Chokshi and I must say that I’m pretty impressed with her writing. It’s very artistic and beautiful. The characters are very diverse and they are all well-represented. Roshani’s way of writing these characters is really well-done, too. It’s really entertaining to know each character’s background story while also knowing their present thoughts and feelings. As a Filipino, I’m glad that he’s well-represented — how he’s attached to his family, and his jolly and sweet personality; and how he’s judged by the color of his skin, as he’s a mestizo. I also loved how Laila’s Indian culture was shown in this book and we even got to hear Laila’s thoughts on how other people, especially foreigners during the 18th-19th century, are not respectful of her culture. Then Laila would think to herself the ways they appreciate and respect their culture way back in India. I wouldn’t go through each character but I want you all to know that they all have notable personalities and they were all shown exquisitely by Chokshi. Another thing that really amazed me is the extensive and deep research that Chokshi did. Her research on history, science, mathematics, and culture all helped a lot in making the story as engaging and interesting as it is. I immediately became a fan of Chokshi as I saw her wit, creativity, compassion and humor through the characters that she created. Just a little warning though that you won’t be able to stop reading this book. I swear, you’ll indulge this dangerously amazing and beautiful book!

  • Great story

    Séverin Montagnet-Alarie is a treasure Hunter and maybe more. When he is asked by the Order of Babel to find an artifact, he hopes to find something very important to him, his inheritance. He has recruited people with certain skills to help him. Each is as different as the other, but each special. Laila is important to Séverin in more than one way. Is she too different to love? This book is a treasure in it's own right. I loved it . Twisted is the first word that came to my mind, but in a good way. Can't wait to see what happens in the next book. I received this book from Net Galley and St. Martin's Press for a honest review. I voluntarily read this book.

  • Fast-Paced Adeventure

    This is a fast-paced book. You get sucked right into the story and don't want to stop reading. I like how we switch people telling the story throughout the book. It is at times to hard to remember that all the people in this story are under the age of 20 because they act and talk well beyond their years. This story takes place in Paris near the turn of the century but with magic. I'm not really sure how to describe Forge but to call it magic. This is a fun adventure that had a lot intellectual writing and I'm really looking forward to the next book. *I received a free copy of this book via NetGalley and am voluntarily leaving a review.*

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Can't Wait for Book 2!!!

    Ever since I heard about The Gilded Wolves, it became one of my most anticipated releases of 2019. Not only do I adore Roshani Chokshi’s writing, but I also love books with an ensemble cast of characters (especially when said characters are going on a heist!!!). First, I’ll talk about what makes this story great. I think the highlight of the entire story is the characters. Each individual felt unique, but also like a puzzle piece or part of a whole. They each have such colorful backstories that allow readers to easily grow attached, but when they are placed alongside one another, the characters automatically seem to fit and come together as a single unit. I never once doubted their love or loyalty to one another. It was as evident and tangible as the book I held in my hands. Their pure belief in one another marked this story’s characters as ones easily loved and remembered. It’s so hard to choose which character is my favorite, because I love them all, but if I was forced to choose, it would have to be a tie between Zofia and Enrique. Not only did I love their individual personalities, but I also loved their personalities in tandem with one another. When they work or even joke alongside one another, they’re an undeniable duo. I’m really interested in seeing how their relationship will develop in the future, an aspect that will likely haunt me until I’m able to get my hands on book 2. Another great aspect of the story is the setting. Though this story takes place around an actual historical event in history, the fantasy element makes it distinctive. It felt like something that could’ve easily been overdone or underdone, but Chokshi found the perfect balance. It felt like the characters were simultaneously in Paris and in a fantasy world yet to be discovered. Overall, a job well done. Now, to briefly mention what made this story a four-star read instead of five… I hate to say it, but the beginning of this book was slow and confusing. I mean, I was invested, but I had to re-read almost everything several times in order to understand completely. It was only until I was half-way through the story that I felt myself being sucked into the plot. Don’t get me wrong, the story is amazing and the backstory is a necessary matter to draw out and explain in detail. However, the fact that it stalled the level of my interest initially, because of how much effort it took to organize the characters and plot, definitely didn’t work in its favor. This book is definitely one to check out. I am stocked for a sequel!
