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.


My Review: Oh boy.....

After trying out this book, I think I'm not going to continue with this author. Sadly, none of her books I've tried were more than 2 stars...

This is probably the first book, in which I gave up right at the start. The sound of the book was amazing, the history, location, etc. It all hit the mark on things I liked and finally thought this would be it...but nope. I gave up after the 3rd chapter. I just couldnt get over at how boring the characters were. The details lacked in some areas and then there was too much detail where there shouldn't have been. There were many POV that I just couldnt get into.

Sadly, this just wasn't what I had hoped it to be.
