Release Day + Review +Tour Details: DANCE OF THIEVES by Mary E. Pearson

We are so excited about the start of Mary E. Pearson's new duet, set after the final events of her Remnant Chronicles. You can read our review below! 


A new novel in the New York Times–bestselling Remnant Chronicles universe, in which a reformed thief and the young leader of an outlaw dynasty lock wits in a battle that may cost them their lives—and their hearts.

When the patriarch of the Ballenger empire dies, his son, Jase, becomes its new leader. Even nearby kingdoms bow to the strength of this outlaw family, who have always governed by their own rules. But a new era looms on the horizon, set in motion by a young queen, which makes her the target of the dynasty's resentment and anger.

At the same time, Kazi, a legendary former street thief, is sent by the queen to investigate transgressions against the new settlements. When Kazi arrives in the forbidding land of the Ballengers, she learns that there is more to Jase than she thought. As unexpected events spiral out of their control, bringing them intimately together, they continue to play a cat and mouse game of false moves and motives in order to fulfill their own secret missions.

“...even events unplanned can whisk us down paths that we never expected to travel, changing our destinies and what defines us.” 

I've been a long time fan of Mary's books. THE KISS OF DECEPTIONcontinues to hold the spot as one of my favorite fantasy books ever and I was so sad to say goodbye to the series. So when I saw that she was writing a new series set in the same world, I knew I had to read it. DANCE OF THIEVES was one of my most anticipated reads this year and I'm here to say that it did not disappoint.

Was it possible to live two lives side-by-side? To serve two goals that were destined to collide? To weave lies with one hand and unravel them with the other? 

DANCE OF THIEVES is a new duology set in the same world as The Remnant Chronicles, a few years after the events at the end of, The Beauty of Darkness. Kazi was sent to investigate the Ballengers and instead has to work with their newly appointed leader. Kazi and Jase, an unlikely duo are forced to work together against labor hunters. Kazi, a previous street rat tuned elite guard to the Queen of Venda. Her years of thieving to survive taught her things that may just save their lives. Jase, raised to rule his dynasty, yet new to his role as Patrei, is still learning to be a leader and discovering what his father left in his wake. Both harbor secrets that could tare them apart.

Laughter reveals in the same way a sigh or a glance does. It’s an unintentional language. Worry, fear, deceit—they hide in the things unsaid. 

The book started off full of action and I was immediately taken back to everything I loved about the previous series and Mary's writing. There was a little while where my momentum slowed but I can't say that was the books fault or my own. I adore Mary's storytelling and how she weaves in so many intricate details. The ending of this book had me looking around my empty living room saying (to myself) "Did you just read that? OMG! WHAT JUST HAPPENED!!!" Overall I loved this book and I'm already dying for the sequel. Well done!

Mary E. Pearson is the NYT bestselling and award-winning author of eleven YA novels and one novella. Her works include the completed trilogy, The Remnant Chronicles, which in a starred review, Publisher’s Weekly called “masterfully crafted.” Her favorite activities as a child were climbing tall trees imagining she was a hero in some fantastical world, or running along fence tops and roofs pretending she was a spy with a bagful of amazing gadgets. She was rarely herself. Amazingly, she never broke a bone until she caught a basketball in gym class. Catching real balls was not her forte. These days she continues to live in make-believe worlds she creates in her books. Her latest 2-book series, Dance of Thieves, allows her do all kinds of dangerous things without breaking any bones. So far.
