We loved this The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi. Set in golden age of Paris, this buddy heist theme novel stars Severine, the bastard son of the Vanth House. Enrique, historian extraordinaire. Zofia, mathemation and explosion expert. Tristan, younger adoptive brother of Severine and forger of all things plant life. Laila, chief, dancer, and holder of a secret that may literally end up tearing her apart. Totting a strong plot, lots of backstory, easy to follow dialogue, and a likeable cast of characters, it was an enjoyable ride from beginning to end! Our favorite element was the forged animals and Laila’s backstory.
