Initial thoughts: I don't think I've ever read a book with such a culturally diverse cast! My heart was leaping. We've got main characters who are French-Algerian, a Jewish, and also Indian. Enrique's even Spanish-Filipino, making him the first main character of mixed Filipino descent I've ever read in YA Fantasy. That is momentous and must be celebrated! (FYI: I'm of Filipino descent myself, thanks to my mum.)

Anyway, beyond identities, I had a lot of fun reading The Gilded Wolves. Lots of puzzles to solve, twists to overcome, and trust issues to address. I actually burst out laughing when I read the last page because I saw that coming during the first half of the book. The build-up towards that moment was good though, so I'm excited for the sequel.
