Ladies and gentlemen we have a big winner!!!! I proudly declare that I finished one of the best books of 2020 right now!

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!)

me: *looking through some fancy opera glasses* well hello there you beautiful gorgeous twisty sequel 👀

Update: After 3 weeks of waiting my request on NetGalley has been declined and I'm devastated! T_T
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!

I received this complimentary ARC from the publisher, in exchange for an honest review.

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.

Everything has been building to this book.

We have travel.
We have stakes that are higher than they ever were before.

Hmmm... Review? Not so much. Rants and illogical thoughts? Most definitely.

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.

Thank you Wednesday Books for gifting me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review!

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

Thank you so much to Wednesday Books for the eARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review! It hurts me that the publication date is so far away now, and I don't know why the date got pushed back. I also don't know why I was convinced that this was only going to be a duology?

Anyway, let's talk about the book. 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

Please tell me there is going to be another book?? I absolutely devoured The Silvered Serpents! From beginning to the very end, I was hooked. Completely freaking hooked. I was even surprised by some crap because holy shit.. I didn't think this gang would go through so much. Or even become more likable and level up in bad-ass-ness.

Again, it was amazing. I loved each chapter and all the characters reuniting again. I still

A continuation of the Gilded Wolves novel (picking up right about where the first one left off) with deep dives into the character's emotional lives and the repercussions of the notable death at the end of the first book. I won't mention who dies in Gilded Wolves, but I really enjoyed that Silvered Serpents didn't act like it never happened. It happened, and it changed everyone, mostly for the worst. Lovely language, emotional resonance, and a rich Belle Epoque-style setting make this YA fantasy ...more

Okay, so it's taken me several days to get my thoughts together enough to write a review 😀. Thank you firstly to NetGalley and Wednesday Books for the eARC, which was actually the first ARC I was lucky enough to receive and which I've sat on for months, until I got around to reading The Gilded Wolves first. Which was just amazing. And I was so happy that I was able to immediately pick up where that left off, and start on The Silvered Serpents.

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. The stakes

I was lucky enough to be able to start The Silvered Serpents right after finished The Gilded Wolves and I can't image the pain of having to wait a year after the conclusion of the first book in this series. All I will say is this, I thought the pain at the end of The Gilded Wolves was bad. Just wait friends. That was nothing compared to the pain that this book

Excuses to tell you that youre a poison Ive come to crave. Excuses to tell you that you terrify me out of my senses, and how Im fairly certain youll be the death of me, Laila, and yet I cant bring myself to mind.

Want to know the ONLY bad thing about reading this book? The fact that itll be another year and a half before Ill have the third book in my hands.

Oh how I missed my friends Séverin, Laila, Zofia and Enrique. I loved how we got to see how they all were coping with the loss of Tristan.

I want to start my review by stating if you absolutely loved the first book you will probably love this installment.
I really enjoyed the world building in the first book, but was not fully invested in the cast of characters and their relationships. I had high hopes, and was anticipating a deeper dive into the characters' development. However, the characters are all really depressed over the events of the last

This was a hauntingly gorgeous book filled with wonder, pain, adventure, and so much more.
I LOVED the first book so imagine my surprise when Roshani-the-goddess-herself-Chokshi whipped this beauty up. I read this in less than 24 hours and I'm regretting it now because well.......I miss the characters already.

I don't want to spoil anything for this book because well, its not out yet. Let me

“See how the symbols stretch across all three shields? They represent a god."
Hypnos frowned. "There's a God of lions and knives and wineglasses? That seems incredibly specific."
"This god is Shezmu," said Enrique, rolling his eyes. "He's seldom depicted, perhaps because he's at such odds with himself. On the other hand, he's the lord of perfumes and gracious oils, often considered something of a celebration deity."
"My kind of god," said Hypnos.
"He is also the god of slaughter, blood and dismemberment."
"I amend my original statement," said Hypnos.”
"You see that, my Zosia?" he had asked. "That is the devil. When a man cannot see a person as a person, then the devil has slipped into him and is peering out of his eyes." 1 likes
