StoryGraph Saturday is a weekly thing where I randomly choose a book from my To Read pile on StoryGraph and show it off to both remind myself that it’s there and to show it to you, Dear Reader, in case you might find it interesting, too.
The Bronzed Beasts (The Gilded Wolves #3)
by Roshani Chokshi
Expected publication: September 21, 2021
From The StoryGraph:
After Séverin’s seeming betrayal, the crew is fractured. Armed with only a handful of hints, Enrique, Laila, Hypnos and Zofia must find their way through the snarled, haunted waterways of Venice, Italy to locate Séverin.
Meanwhile, Séverin must balance the deranged whims of the Patriarch of the Fallen House and discover the location of a temple beneath a plague island where the Divine Lyre can be played and all that he desires will come to pass.
With only ten days until Laila expires, the crew will face plague pits and deadly masquerades, unearthly songs and the shining steps of a temple whose powers might offer divinity itself…but at a price they may not be willing to pay.
I read the first book in this trilogy, The Gilded Wolves, and was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. I read it in a single sitting on a trans-Atlantic flight, and was anxious to read the second. I managed to get an eARC from the publisher and devoured it, and thanks to a cliff-hanger ending, I’m looking forward to this one. I’m on the hold list for the ebook, but I don’t know how many people requested it before me. So I’ll get it one of these days. Hopefully sooner rather than later.
