Book Review: The Silvered Serpents

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.
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.

I received a digital advanced reader copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Chokshi has done it again! Silver Serpents picked up almost immediately where Gilded Wolves  left off. It felt so fluid and seamless. 

Again, the characters are my favorite part of this series. I love them and I think they just really make everything about this story better. Silver Serpents has a very emotional and heartbreaking ending. So do not read if you don’t want a good cry. 

This story moved at such a fast pace and had such a steady flow. It was a rollercoaster of emotions but it was up and down at all the right times. I did feel like I was left with a lot of unanswered questions. I hope we get another novel to answer them. 

The villains were a tad predictable, but it was still very intriguing. Honestly, I feel like I liked this a lot more than the first book of the series. I love that the plot was more fully formed.

The writing was so descriptive and super vivid. As usual Chokshi does a wonderful job of world building and character creation and development. This book hurt me. I cried so much. I really hope we get some closure! 

Thank you so much to Roshani Chokshi, NetGalley, and St. Martin’s press for allowing me to review this title.
