    Our protagonist, Kazi, has been sent by

    (still one of the best ya protagonists out there) to find General Illarium, who we already know (he's the one who betrayed Lia's family and caused the death of her father and brother). Rumor has it he's in Hell's mouth, a city that's supposed to be under Venda's jurisdiction, but that's actually under the control of the Ballenger family.

    The Ballengers have been fighting for eyes to be recognised as the first kingdom (because they actually are) but they've never been able to and now is a particularly bad time because the last

    (the ruler) has just died. Jase, our second protagonist, has just become the new

    .

    A few chapters in, Kazi and Jase find themselves shackled (literally) at the ankles, lol.

    she's my favorite. She's a Vendan orphan (now 17) who's had a really tough childhood where she became an incredibly skilled thief. She lived during the Komizar's rule, when thief lost fingers when they were caught. Kazi earned the nickname

    because she still had all of them. Lia found her and made her part of her personal guard, the

    . She's sassy and strong but also sweet and silly and I loved her friendship with her fellow Rathvas Wren and Synové.

    I definitely prefer Kazi but he's good, too. He's 19 and he's the new

    , his family means everything to him and even if the Ballegers are a people of thieves that don't follow the other kingdoms's laws, he's a decent person who can clearly see the difference between good and bad.

    I'm gonna be honest, this is a romance-heavy book. That's not a problem for me because I love romance, but some people may find it a bit too much sometimes.

    And I also know that many are going to say it's instalove-y. I personally don't think so, tho. It's true, there's some immediate attraction but they are in an impossible situation (literally shackled together) so they have to cooperate to survive and not go completely crazy. I found their relationship believable and sweet, the book isn't about the

    , it's about them knowing they have feeling for each other but not trusting the other, and slowly trying to right that lack of trust.

    I swear all was going perfectly and then the last two page happened. Mary E. Pearson is evil and I need book 2 now.

    I absolutely love Mary's writing. Just like with the Kiss of Deception, Dance of Thieves sucked me right in from the get go! Also if you read the last trilogy, there is a glimpse of a few of the people from it! So I was fangirling about that!!

    My favorite aspect of this book was the bond between Kazi and Jase—they were a bucket full of cuteness. Or course being on opposite sides of things caused disagreement and secrets, but it made the story more addicting. Kazi made me frustrated at times, but

    My favorite aspect of this book was the bond between Kazi and Jase—they were a bucket full of cuteness. Or course being on opposite sides of things caused disagreement and secrets, but it made the story more addicting. Kazi made me frustrated at times, but I understood how she worked because of the way she grew up. However, I also loved her for how she was. Although, Jase was my favorite!

    The side characters were great and the world building was excellent. I seriously can't wait to read the next book and see what happens. I can already tell some serious stuff is going to go down!!

    Easily one of my top reads of this year. Full review to come!

    I couldn't put this book down, which is basically one of the biggest compliments I can give lately. Pearson knows how to write romance, ya'll. It wasn't easy or simple, and it got me right in the heartstrings.

    If you haven't read the Remnant Chronicles, no worries. This book uses some of the same characters in a minor way, but you can go into this without knowing anything and be totally fine. The only thing I wished for was a book map (always).

    Although this book is considered fantasy, I will note

    Although this book is considered fantasy, I will note that any magic/mystical elements were very subtle and not a main focus of the book at all.

    What you'll get with this story is schemes, battles, conflicting loyalties, strength of character and some swoonworthy moments.

    The fantasy of the year to beat so far!

    I can’t even begin to explain how much I’ve missed this world and our old characters. I think it might be time for a reread soon!

    Although The Remnant Chronicles has a special place in my heart and will probably never be replaced as my favorite Mary Pearson series, Dance of Thieves did not disappoint. It was great to see more of this world beyond just Morrighan, Dalbreck, and Venda.

    Every character in this spin-off has already captured my heart. Kazi, Wren, and Synové? BAD ASS FEMALE CHARACTERS. P

    Although The Remnant Chronicles has a special place in my heart and will probably never be replaced as my favorite Mary Pearson series, Dance of Thieves did not disappoint. It was great to see more of this world beyond just Morrighan, Dalbreck, and Venda.

    Every character in this spin-off has already captured my heart. Kazi, Wren, and Synové? BAD ASS FEMALE CHARACTERS. Period. I want to be them. That is all. Jase and the Ballengers? PRECIOUS. All of them. Protect them at all costs.

    And the romance? Mary Pearson knows how to write good romance, no doubt about it, and I ship literally everyone in this book. I really enjoyed the cat-and-mouse game between Kazi and Jase to a certain extent. I did get annoyed at some points where I just wish they’d stop lying to each other. But I’m used to it by now since lack of communication always seems to be an issue with the characters of the Remnant Chronicles universe considering how I’ve had this same problem before with Lia, Rafe, and the rest of the gang. 😅

    There were some parts where I did feel the story drag on and I had to put the book aside for a bit but I don’t think I was ever bored. There was always something new to learn about in this world and I was absolutely fascinated by the Ballenger history and how their “kingdom” began.

    And of course, it was a pleasure seeing and reading about the familiar faces of The Remnant Chronicles. It was great to see how Lia’s reign as Queen was going and how the rest of our favorites were faring. I desperately wanted to know how my ship was doing after the events of The Beauty of Darkness since we didn’t get too much of an epilogue. But there was definitely some closure after reading this book.

    Dance of Thieves really lives up to its name along with the Remnant Chronicles hype. If you loved the Kiss of Deception books, I don’t think you will be disappointed. I was feeling super nostalgic the whole time reading this book and I’m so grateful to Mary Pearson for bringing us back! I already can’t wait for the next book especially with that ENDING. 😰

    EXCUSE ME WHILE I HYPERVENTILATE FOR A SECOND

  • Joshua Gabriel (조수아)

    I absolutely love

    , so please don't judge me if I wanna preemptively give this book 5 stars. And oh man, I hope that we get to see a Lia-and-Rafe cameo! <3 Time to start praying for an ARC. #GiveItToMeNow
