The Silvered Serpents
Séverin and his team members might have successfully thwarted the Fallen House, but victory came at a terrible cost one that still haunts all of them. Desperate to make amends, Séverin pursues a dangerous lead to find a long lost artifact rumored to grant its possessor the power of God.
Their hunt lures ...more
When it came out a year ago, The Gilded Wolves was a fresh, welcome addition to the YA Fantasy yarn. I pleasurably devoured it, and was really looking forward to reading the sequel and folding myself once again between the characters and their tragedy, lose myself in the beauty of their voicesand have many of my questions answered. Unfortunately, the burst of excitement that flamed in my heart when I picked up this book was quickly swallowed up by ...more
I cannot believe how much I loved this book, I gave four stars to the first one and but when I compare two of them, its only fair to give this one ten gazillion stars because this is so so so so sooooooooo much better. Can you hear I still slap my forehead for waiting too much to get this into my hands? BANG BANG BANG(Yes, my skull is too thick! Made by more woods than flesh!)
it builds so effortlessly upon the first book and in a way that feels more developed, better paced, and has me falling in love with the characters all over again.
because thats honestly what i loved most about this - the characters. yes, there is a lot of historical mystery and secretive adventure and fast plots, but wow. these characters are something else. i feel so invested in each and every one of them, which rarely happens for me when theres a large ...more
Yes, it's a tale inspired by the swept over parts of history, but it's also a tale of coming to ...more
I wish my love was more beautiful.
Sometimes you read books for page turner, grand action and fast paced, epic twists and turns, yes, but sometimes you read them for carefully plotted brilliance and mystical mysteries, sometimes you pick them up for delicate ...more
I didnt love this quite as much as The Gilded Wolves but it still came very close. This is ANGSTY! We learn so much more about some of the other characters and Im so attached to all of them. Some of the villain stuff in this one felt a bit predictable, but that was the only flaw. Im definitely looking forward to the finale.
Review and discussion to come on my channel. ...more
After reading The Gilded Wolves last year and adoring it, I discovered a new favorite series to follow obsessively. When I turned the final page, I ...more
I loved this book and hated it. I really enjoyed the Gilded Wolves and Tristan was my favorite character. I just loved how he was quiet and seemed to be the one that grounded Séverin. I enjoyed how Séverin kept thinking back on his and Tristans times with the seven different foster fathers they had. It gave a lot of insight into both of their characters and how their psyches were formed.
Tristan definitely had the most comical scenes, since he had Goliath as a pet. I mean how can a ...more
Looks like I'll just have to wait until the book hits our stores. *sighs*
The new year barely started but for me September can't come soon enough!!
How am I supposed to survive this long wait?!!
Alright, I'll just continue to live in denial!
The ending of "The Gilded Wolves" never happened!
Everything is going to be fine!
*takes a deep breath*
*takes another deep breath*
THIS BOOK WAS ABSOLUTELY MENTAL AND I LOVED EVERY SECOND OF IT. It wasnt as confusing as the first instalment. The plot was faster with even higher stakes, leaving me so very worried for my precious babies. I was left an absolute mess and know Ill have a torturous wait for the third book to release. *cries*
This was a sequel DONE RIGHT.
This is a story of grief. Severin locks his sorrow inside and hardens his face. Laila distances herself from her friends. Enrique throws himself into his work. Zofia leaves L'Eden and its tainted halls. Hypnos tries to fill a role never meant for him.
The Silvered Serpents is a recovery story. The crew comes together for one last job, but nothing is the same. It's a weak imitation of the camaraderie of before, and they all know it. ...more
Me: DEVOURS IT
Roshani Chokshi: Oh, BTW's, the next one comes out in a year
Me: *Drinks water *SPITS IT OUT
Roshani Chokshi: Not a problem, right?
Me: Figuring out if my grades would be okay if I went into a coma until 2020
After those last two chapters, I can't. THAT ENDING. THE TENSION. THE CLIFFHANGER.
The Gilded Wolves (#1) ★★★★★
The Silvered Serpents (#2) ★★★★☆
August 16, 2020: I have finished reading it. While I was hoping to get a happiness-filled epilogue where all of them would be making a cake in the kitchen, what I did get was jam. The third book is needed! Full review to come.
August 8, 2020: Starting this and I'm here for the Winter Conclave, for Zofia & Enrique to make me feel dumb, for Hypnos to basically be me, and for Laila to explain the meaning of majnun to Severin while I ...more
anyways, buddy read with a little bean
also thanks to netgalley for coming through with this arc copy xoxo
it didn't HIT like the gilded wolves but I still love this so much I love my babies so much review to come
Just take my heart, rip it out, grind it up, and burn it. This sequel was spectacular but it ripped me to shreds. What a beautiful, terrible, heartrending piece of fiction. Everyone should read it.
Character development: ★★★★ 1/2
This book is a sequel, and so my review will have SPOILERS for the first book in the series. Please don't read if you don't want SPOILERS for The Gilded Wolves. You can read my review of ...more
A small part of him hesitated, but he steeled himself. He was doing this for them. For his friends. The more he cared about their feelings, the harder his task became. And so he endeavored to feel nothing at all.
Everything has been building to this book.
We have heists.
We have travel.
We have stakes that are higher than they ever were before.
Thank you Netgalley and the publisher for an eARC in exchange for an honest review
Also can I just give a shout out to Roshani who knows how to craft ...more
This book doesn't release until September 2020, but I just finished reading The Gilded Wolves and I had to know what was next for Séverin and his team! I'm new to Chokshi's work, but this series has me HOOKED!! This author's words are inspired, reverent and relevant. I love history, especially mythological or religious history, and the way she filled this story with so much color, I was enthralled.
✳ A huge part of ...more
I present to you my first favorite read of the year! Its still early to say but I know that this one will be on the list. I dont think I have enough words to describe how much I loved this book aside from the fact that I did a lot of screaming, and I might have sobbed (might have). Roshani Chokshi has managed to squeeze my heart throughout this story, and I still feel the squeeze when this book comes to my mind ...more
The most important thing to know is that it is 100% inarguably better than the Gilded Wolves. I honestly didn't love that book as it was overdone with prose and long scientific ramblings. Chokshi speeds it up in this followup - Holly Black apparently offered advice on spicing things up a bit and it definitely worked.
There is still some chattering about puzzles and math, then ...more
★★★★★ 5 stars!
I know you dream what I dream, a world where people like us are not kept under foot, but restored to a place of equality
I have been waiting for this ever since I read The Gilded Wolves and I loved The Silvered Serpents even more! It is much darker than The Gilded Wolves, and also even more enthralling, and I absolutely couldnt put this down!
Chokshi has crafted a dark, magical, ...more

Actual rating: 3.5 stars
You cant finish a book like that and expect me to wait for a whole year to read the next part!
For the millionth time, I want to praise Roshani Chokshi's talent! She has this special way with words that just goes to my bloodstream and spreads through my veins straight to my heart. She is a Goddess of Words, I swear!
The Silvered Serpents is more mature and intense than its predecessor.
I am once again asking you to read a book that destroyed me emotionally. Seriously what did I just read. I think need to go lie down in a dark room for a few hours to contemplate it in its entirety. Maybe by then I will have processed the five stages of grief and have accepted everything that happened from start to finish.
The Silvered Serpents is the captivating follow up to first book in the series, The Gilded Wolves. In it, Roshani Chokshi builds off of the concluding events from the ...more
