Engrossingly Magical | Review: The Silvered Serpents by Roshani Chokshi

The highly anticipated sequel to The Gilded Wolves is months away, but I promise the wait is worth it. The Silvered Serpents is thoroughly captivating and imaginative.

The Silvered Serpents 
by Roshani Chokshi 

They are each other’s fiercest love, greatest danger, and only hope.

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 rumoured to grant its possessor the power of God.

Their hunt lures them far from Paris, and into 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.

As hidden secrets come to the light and the ghosts of the past catch up to them, the crew will discover new dimensions of themselves. But what they find out may lead them down paths they never imagined.

A tale of love and betrayal as the crew risks their lives for one last job.

As always, a copy of this book was provided by the authors in exchange for my honest review. This does not effect my opinion in any way.  

The Silvered Serpents is pure magic and a worthy follow up to The Gilded Wolves. After finishing book one last year, readers were treated to a magical ride and the kindling of a new obsession. The ending to The Gilded Wolves proved to us how perfectly executed storytelling should progress and left us dangling on the edges of for the next chapter.

Don't let the ethereal quality of the novel's cover fool you--The Silvered Serpents is sharper, faster and a little darker than you might expect.

Theoretically speaking, there's a big part of me that preferred the way that The Gilded Wolves made me feel. There's something undeniably engrossing about both installments, but, there's no doubt in my mind, that The Silvered Serpents--in terms of world building, and imaginative writing--is all the more enthralling and will appeal to a broader spectrum than, perhaps, The Gilded Wolves did.

(Although, obviously, it appealed to many and is very beloved.)

With this new installment comes magically fused, new plot-twists and an ever-changing landscape. As we pick up nearly immediately after The Gilded Wolves ended, The Silvered Serpents wastes no time in thrusting readers into the thick of it. Not only are we engulfed in the vividness that is the novel's prose and world-building, we're treated to an array of plotlines that even I didn't always see coming.

Roshani Chokshi truly outdid herself with The Silvered Serpents.
