Everything You Need to Know About "The Gilded Wolves" by Roshani Chokshi

The Gilded Wolves is one of my most anticipated releases of 2019 and I can't believe it's almost upon us! I've heard nothing but amazing things from fellow bloggers who've had the chance to read this book early and it has only raised my excitement to an entire new level. Today, I thought I would share some amazing things about this upcoming book to hopefully get you as excited as I am!

About the Author

The Gilded Wolves is the first novel in a new series by New York Times Bestselling Author Roshani Chokshi. Previous published works by Roshani include Aru Shah and the End of Time, The Star Touched Queen, Crown of Wishes, Star Touched Stories, and an inclusion in the anthology A Thousand Endings and Beginnings. In addition to the upcoming The Gilded Wolves, Roshani is also working on the Aru Shah sequel, Aru Shah and the Song of Death.

From the author's website: "Her work has been nominated for the Locus and Nebula awards, and her books have appeared on Barnes and Nobles Best New Books of the Year and Buzzfeed Best Books of the Year lists. Chokshi lives in Georgia, but doesn’t have much of a Southern accent. Alas."


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.

Release Date: January 15, 2019

Character Reveals

There have been numerous character portraits revealed lately and I'm thrilled to share them all with you right now! Each of these beautiful character portraits were illustrated by Nicole Deal, who has done some amazing freelance illustrations. You can find her website here! But for right now, here are the characters (captions from Roshani's Twitter). 

Left: "Heeeeere's Enrique, my nerdy Spanish-Filipino historian whose decision making is v food-centric." 

Right: "Tristan is a gardener extraordinaire & also that little brother who says "LOOK WHAT I FOUND" and thrusts a bunch of writhing insects in your face while cooing at them. *shudders*. Gotta love the fuzzy tarantula, Goliath, just chilling by his feet."

Left: "Meet Hypnos, Patriarch of House Nyx. Not sure what to say about this ultraglam goof. I love him? But he's terrible? Don't let him near your boyfriend."

Right: "If you’re looking for a best friend obsessed with fire, numbers, fire, perfect circle sugar cookies, and more just might love Zofia."

Left: "You know that Mom Friend who feeds you all the time & remembers your birthday & probably loves you more than your own parents? Laila is THAT. But also really, really, ridiculously good looking. And with a dark secret...."

Right: "And laaaast....Nicholas Cage in National Treasure but make him sexy...the dude Lara Croft who could leave you on Read for 2 days & it’s fine...Séverin Montagnet-Alarie 😈"

All of these characters look so amazing and the illustrations are completely on point! I can't wait to look back on these when I'm reading!
