My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Summary from GoodReads

In love they breathed. In destiny they believed. In the end, will divinity be their demise?

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.

Returning to the dark and glamorous 19th century world of her New York Times instant bestseller, The Gilded Wolves, Roshani Chokshi dazzles us with the final riveting tale as full of mystery and danger as ever.



I received an e-ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. 

I did not know what to expect when I dove into this book! I was ecstatic to receive an e-ARC of the last book as this series has something that tugs in your heartstrings and leaves you thinking of the story and the characters long after you are done reading.

The story picks up right from when we were left, in that horrible cliffhanger of book 2 where Severin has betrayed everyone in order to find the Lost Temple and become a god along with the leader of the Fallen House. Enrique, Laila, Hypnos and Zofia shook by the turn of events try to find a way to help Laila whose time is running out, and also beat Severin to the Temple's location

Action, humor, lots of feels, and a healthy dose of mystery, mythology, and lost relics added a hearty dose to the story making you wonder how all will turn out or how the story will unfold. On every page, I read there was something that made me carve to read more and wanting this not to end! I adored Enrique and Zofia and Hypnos too, as part of this trio (which in my opinion probably became a thourple though nothing like that is mentioned or hinted in the book-so do not make assumptions it's just my thought). Laila and Severin? God this was a romance I loved to read and it broke my heart, especially by the time I reached the epilogue. I did not expect THAT to happen and by the end of the book I was in tears.

Roshani Chokshi finished in the best way possible this series and I will eagerly wait for her next books! Totally recommended!

And don't miss the resat books of the series!
