It’s time. The Bronzed Beasts is the third and final novel in Roshani Chokshi’s The Gilded Wolves series. I’ve loved every moment of this series and will be sad to let it go. Yet, I’m far too curious to see how it all ends. Aren’t you?

Last we saw, Severin had seemingly betrayed his friends, all in the hopes of setting them up for success, of course. But that would require Laila, Enrique, Hypnos, and Zofia to see through the ruse he’s put in play. It would require them to, once again, trust him. Will they?

They’re closer than ever to getting control over the Divine Lyre and the gifts that it promises. While the rest are concerned about the costs, Severin is lost in a world of possibility. He’s lost to the danger. How will this last adventure play out?

“I don’t think you’re lost. You’re just searching for the thing that fills you with light.”

Wow. I can’t believe it’s here. I can’t believe it’s over. The Gilded Wolves have been a part of my life these past few years, and they’ve been an enchanting presence. To say goodbye was rough. Yet that ending…it made it worth it.

The Bronzed Beasts is a whirlwind read, and I do mean it. Once again, every character gets their chance to have a say via the swapping perspectives. Yet there’s so much going on; it’s almost difficult to take it all in.

There were perspectives and moments I loved more than others. For example, Zofia is such a gem, so naturally, I loved every chapter that focused on her and her ventures. However, I’ll admit that what Severin’s doing had some of the biggest impact on the main plot (obviously).

On that note – holy cow! I knew that the odds were good that the ante would be upped before it was all said and done…but I was not expecting this! The pace picks up, as does the threat level. All while Chokshi’s writing style continues to paint pictures for the readers.

It’s so much to process, and yet it’s also impossible to look away from. It was interesting to see what choices the characters made, especially right towards the end. Speaking of – I know we were all curious to see how their choices would play out. Some decisions may have been more surprising than others. But honestly? It all felt so right. That’s what matters the most, at least to me.
