Meet The Gilded Wolves!!
 
 

From New York Times bestselling author Roshani Chokshi comes a novel set in Paris during a time of extraordinary change--one that is full of mystery, decadence, and dangerous desires...No one believes in them. But soon no one will forget them.

It's 1889. The city is on the cusp of industry and power, and the Exposition Universelle has breathed new life into the streets and dredged up ancient secrets. Here, no one keeps tabs on dark truths better than treasure-hunter and wealthy hotelier Séverin Montagnet-Alarie. When the elite, ever-powerful Order of Babel coerces him to help them on a mission, Séverin is offered a treasure that he never imagined: his true inheritance.

To hunt down the ancient artifact the Order seeks, Séverin calls upon a band of unlikely experts: An engineer with a debt to pay. A historian banished from his home. A dancer with a sinister past. And a brother in arms if not blood.

Together, they will join Séverin as he explores the dark, glittering heart of Paris. What they find might change the course of history--but only if they can stay alive.

 YABC:  Thinking way back to the beginning, what’s the most important thing you've learned as a writer from then to now?

For me, the most important thing I’ve learned has been how to keep going. We often think about books as these definitive commentaries on our style as artists, the future of our careers, the print we will leave in the collective imaginations of readers. I don’t think that’s true anymore. Each book I write defines a part of me, but it doesn’t encompass the whole of me. I have more stories to offer the world, and if I’m stuck or trapped believing that I will never reach higher or never fall lower than this, I’m doing a disservice to my imagination. 

 

 YABC:  What do you like most about the cover of the book?

I love how lush and sinister it feels. Kerri Resnick did an amazing job at bringing the atmosphere of the book to life on the cover.

 

 

 YABC:  What new release book are you looking most forward to in 2019?

THE WICKED SAINTS by Emily Duncan. I had the chance to read it early, and it’s just a wonderful, treacherous dream of a read.

 

 YABC:  What’s up next for you?

Up next, I’m working on Book 3 of the PANDAVA series, which follows Aru and her sisters on their next adventures ☺I’m also working on my first round of revisions for THE GILDED WOLVES sequel. There’s a secret, passion project I’ve been sneaking some words on hither and thither, but for now, there’s not much to say about it.

 YABC:  Which was the most difficult or emotional scene to narrate?

The end. You’ll see.

 

 

 YABC:  Which character gave you the most trouble when writing your latest book?

Zofia. She digests the world around her in a vastly different way from me, so I relied on the wisdom of sensitivity readers on the autism spectrum, and also did a lot of research on how she might react to certain sensory stimuli; jokes; touch, etc. She was the hardest to write, but certainly the most rewarding.

 

 

 YABC:  Which part of the writing process do you enjoy more: Drafting or Revising?

Revising!

 

 

 YABC:  What would you say is your superpower?

I’d like to think my superpower is the ability to find good at the heart of things. In reality, I think my superpower is always guessing the expiration date of a gallon of milk.
