【國際名家好評】

真可惜,這不是一本我寫得出來的書,我就是缺少了內行人的知識和技能,無法處理印度神話當中氣勢磅礡、無與倫比的神奇世界,更別說是還要讓故事風趣,讓讀者覺得容易親近。還好,我們很幸運,洛希妮•查克西就具備有這樣的能力。 ──【波西傑克森】系列作者  雷克‧萊爾頓(Rick Riordan)

 

一顆新星誕生了。《般度戰士:時間的盡頭》令人感到傑出且驚奇。極富原創性又引人入勝,故事中閃耀著機智與魅力,充滿了不可多得的幻想樂趣。──【阿提米斯】系列作者  歐因‧科弗(Eoin Colfer)

 

警告!這本書包含了令人印象深刻的神話、可怕的惡魔,以及那些對你來說更猛的冒險。喔,還有那個走到大象嘴裡的最粗魯女英雄。這我很愛,我想你也是。──【巨靈三部曲】系列作者  喬納森‧史特勞(Jonathan Stroud)

*AN INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER*

"[P. J. Ochlan and Laurie Catherine Winkel] animate a large cast of well-rounded characters, a complicated plot, and rich descriptions...Their strong characterizations as well as their use of accents and judicious timing suggest an exciting new series ahead." — AudioFile Magazine

This program includes a bonus interview with the author.

From New York Times bestselling author Roshani Chokshi comes an audiobook set in Paris during a time of extraordinary change--one that is full of mystery, decadence, and dangerous desires...

It's 1889. The city is on the cusp of industry and power, and the Exposition Universelle has breathed new life into the streets and dredged up ancient secrets. Here, no one keeps tabs on dark truths better than treasure-hunter and wealthy hotelier Séverin Montagnet-Alarie. When the elite, ever-powerful Order of Babel coerces him to help them on a mission, Séverin is offered a treasure that he never imagined: his true inheritance.

To hunt down the ancient artifact the Order seeks, Séverin calls upon a band of unlikely experts: An engineer with a debt to pay. A historian banished from his home. A dancer with a sinister past. And a brother in arms if not blood.

Together, they will join Séverin as he explores the dark, glittering heart of Paris. What they find might change the course of history--but only if they can stay alive.

Praise for The Gilded Wolves:

"Leigh Bardugo's Six of Crows and Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code converge in this dazzling new fantasy... An opulent heist adventure that will leave readers voracious for more.” -- Kirkus, starred review
