First, I have to point out this cover. It is absolutely stunning!! I got lucky and happened to see that Wednesday Books tweeted out about “read now” ARC’s for the day. I saw this one and instantly downloaded it! Thank you so much, Wednesday Books! More publishers should do this.. just saying..

I remember liking The Gilded Wolves but found a lot of issues with it. One of my biggest problems was that it was just info overload and I found a lot of things really confusing. Luckily, I did not have that problem at all with this one. I felt she did an amazing job expanding on book two. In addition, I loved her details. I found myself being able to picture what they were describing and it sounded so beautiful, just like the cover.

I found myself a lot more attached to all the characters in this book too. I love how they all have their own insecurities and own reasons for being on this mission. I didn’t like all the secrets though! I do know it has it’s reasons but ahh, if they would just communicate! I do think that they all really grew as a group and I cannot wait to see what happens in the next book.

This book has taken a bit of a dark path. I don’t want to talk about anything spoiler-y but keep in mind that it’s dark. Some of the things that happen can be triggering.

The tension is so intense in this book. We have it coming from all places! I mentioned secrets, they all have them. There’s tension in relationships, love, and mission. I found myself having to calm my heart rate a few times because I was so tense. I don’t bite my nails but if I did, this would be a nail biter! I found that because of this, the story just flew. I couldn’t put this down and really found it fast-paced. It was a huge difference from book one, in my opinion.

I did figure out some of the twists early on but that ending was a complete surprise! I loved it and I cannot wait for the next book. I’m so sad that I have to wait so long because this book has really made me fall in love with this series. There are some high stakes and I expect the next one to be just as intense!

Overall, this book is just leaps and bounds better than book 1. It’s fast paced, exciting, intense, and a crazy ride. It’s so well done and I highly recommend it. If you were on the fence after book 1, give this one a shot because it’s on a different level.

Thank you, Netgalley & Wednesday Books, for providing me with an e-ARC of this book. It has in no way influenced my opinions!

  1. I had the same thoughts! Silvered Serpents was better for me than Gilded Wolves for all the same reasons. Plus, we had more from Zofia and Enrique who I adore – so that made it way more fun. I hope the next book is more in line with this one because I adored it. I’m glad you liked it!

    • Yes, I really loved more Zofia and Enrique too!! I really hope that she does continue with this flow and type of story telling because it was so much better. If so, I think the next book will be great!! I can’t wait… such a long wait! haha
