Sequel to: Gilded wolves.
Séverin and his team members might have successfully thwarted the Fallen House, but victory came at a terrible cost - one that still haunts all of them. Desperate to make amends, Séverin pursues a dangerous lead to find a long lost artifact rumored to grant its possessor the power of God. Their hunt lures them far from Paris, and into the icy heart of Russia where crystalline ice animals stalk forgotten mansions, broken goddesses carry deadly secrets, and a string of unsolved murders makes the crew question whether an ancient myth is a myth after all.

*Starred Review* Chokshi's lavish sequel to The Gilded Wolves (2019) is as stunning as its predecessor. Picking right up with Séverin and his criminal crew's victory over the Fallen House, these characters are nonetheless reeling from the heavy price of their triumph. The death that struck the team in The Gilded Wolves has sent its members down dark personal paths as they struggle to come to grips with the loss. Needing to make amends, Séverin leads them in a hunt for an ancient relic rumored to grant its owner the power of God. This last job is deadly, but the crew are determined to see it through, even as it takes them across Europe and entangles them in a string of unsolved murders. However, the true danger lies within the relic's allure and potential to transform Chokshi's beloved characters into the darkest versions of themselves. From ice castles, to tragic goddesses, to worldwide hunts, Chokshi takes readers on a whirlwind adventure that will steal their breath. As always, Chokshi's prose is mesmerizing and haunting, but the story's magic emanates from a poignant but tortured romance. The Silvered Serpents will hold its readers (willingly) hostage until the explosive cliffhanger ending, after which they'll be demanding the next installment.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The publisher has an initial 100,000-copy print run slated for this book, which seems destined to be a best seller.
