    I am SO HAPPY to have this chance to return to one of my favorite YA fantasy worlds and get a seriously awesome story. I was worried that maybe I'd have a hard time getting totally into a different plot in the same world (kind of like with Flamecaster after the Seven Realms series) but the author approached it SO well. There are mentions of "the queen" and events from the Remnant Chronicles, but it's held at a distance so you care just as much ab...

    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 mo...

    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...

    I have a soft spot for Mary E. Pearson's books. She's a master at worldbuilding and angst, and her other series sent me over the roof with feels. Naturally, I was eager to get my hands on this new series set in the same world! In short, I loved it, but I will say it was long and took me a while to get my bearing. Since it's been a while since I've read her other books, I had a hard time figuring out where I was in the world. To be honest, I'm sti...

    *I received a copy from the publishing house in exchange for an honest review*4.5And the award for most underrated ya writer goes to ... Mary E. Pearson, again! If there's one thing I don't get about Goodreads and the Book community in general is why everyone is sitting on this amazing author and her series. Seriously, pick these books up!The plot"Get him and get out. That was our task, and that was it. I told them that we also had the bad timing...

    We were alone, we had each other, and we had a whole wilderness ahead of us.Dance of Thieves is about a new set of protagonists, but I'm so pleased because I got the Rafe-and-Lia cameo that I was expecting. This book feels like a standalone, but..hehehe. I shall eagerly await the sequel. :DRTC

    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).Alt...
  • Brooke — brooklynnnnereads
    Without question, this novel was one of my most anticipated reads of this year. I loved the original "Remnant Chronicles" trilogy and was so excited to hear the announcement that the series would be continuing (albeit with different main characters). I wanted more from this world and I wanted more of Mary E. Pearson's writing. I don't think I could be more disappointed to say that I didn't really enjoy this novel and am giving it 2.5 stars. I don...

    *heart eye emojis* I'm SO glad Mary & Macmillan teamed up for more books in the world of the kingdoms of the Remnant! I really enjoyed exploring Tor's Watch & Hell's Mouth and seeing this world through the eyes of new characters, but I was also REALLY glad to see some of my favorite characters from TRC in Dance of Thieves.This book packed an emotional punch from PAGE FREAKING TWO, in which we see the grave of one of my favorite TRC characters and...

    Oh I love Ms Pearson's writing. She has such talent for building worlds with unforgettable characters. The characters are well developed, complex and vulnerable. Just the way I like them. The words are spun so visually reading them is like watching a movie. Thrilling, edge of my seat action, heartbreak, romance, and some fun.This book follows in the world of The Remnant Chronicles, the author's previous series which loved. Some years have passed,...

    This review can also be found here!Thanks to Netgalley for the advanced copy!DNF at 41%I think the first thing you’ll notice is the lack of trigger warnings at the start of this. That’s because, despite getting nearly 50% into this book, I had no clue what was going on and what the importance of it was.Now, I didn’t read Pearson’s Remnant series. I think that bit me in the ass with this one. It felt like I was missing something important....

    2.5 StarsThis series had the same issue for me as her previous - it's too long. I stopped reading multiple times because nothing was happening and I was bored. I finished two other books while still reading this. So why did I round it up to 3 stars?First, the characters. For the most part I really enjoyed the new cast Pearson introduced. Kazi was tough and smart but also still that scared 6 year old who watched her mother being taken away by slav...
  • Milena
    In The Remnant Chronicles Mary E. Pearson created a beautiful, lush but brutal fantasy world that I really enjoyed reading about. Dance of Thieves is a spin-off of that series and is set in the same universe, the story continues few years after the events of The Remnant Chronicles. As much as I enjoyed the Remnant series, I loved Dance of Thieves even more. I loved being back in that world and I really loved the new set of characters we are intro...
  • Ashley
    I loved this so much! The Remnant Chronicles is one of my favorite series of all time and I have been so excited for this book. I love this world, and I loved seeing other parts of this world that weren't in TRC, but I also loved when the TRC characters showed up! I missed them. They didn't take over the story though, this book was definitely about Kazi and Jase. I loved how everything played out. It was a little slow to start, but its also long ...

    Hello, yes, this book MURDERED ME and I’m mad at it but also I’m in love with it so I guess that’s some kind of recommendation.Anyway, Kazi and Jase are just so great, the romance is delicious, the plot is fantastic, all around HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. And if you don’t want to be gutted by a cliffhanger SKIP THE LAST CHAPTER AND SAVE YOURSELF. But also don’t skip it and be absolutely distraught with me please, I need some company.(For the re...

    My god, that ending. I loved literally every moment of this.
  • J.A. Ironside
    ARC provided via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.4.5 stars I am a long time fan of Mary E, Pearson – I loved the Remnant Chronicles. This suffered very slightly from the success of that trilogy for me, as in they were so good it was a difficult act for Dance of Thieves to follow. The book is set in the same world, several years after the great battle in Beauty of Darkness. Dance of Thieves it told in alternating POVs. This time our ...

    You can find this review and others on my blog shades of paper “The ghosts, they never go away. They call to you in unexpected moments, their hands lacing with yours and pulling you down paths that lead nowhere. This way. I had learned to mostly shut them down.” Holy smokes, guys! I honestly don’t know what I was expecting before I started reading this book, but it ended up being absolutely amazing! I cannot thank the publisher enough for...
