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.… (more)

I really enjoyed the characters, the worldbuilding, the backstory. It was super well-written and I think I'll attempt to finish the series.

I think ultimately heist-style plots aren't really for me, and this book is definitely that. ( )

I overall really did enjoy the world building of this story. I also really did like all the characters and felt super connected to them all. I enjoyed. I really did like how this world was mix of both historical fiction and also some magic elements. The pacing and plot of this book was just not as strong as I wanted and i got super lost in the details of this read. I always give first books in a series a bit of leeway and I found this book struggle to follow the plot at points. But I am def still intrigued to read more books in this series! ( )
