  • Candace Robinson
    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...

    "This was more than an unexpected turn. It was an unchecked slide into hell." 4.5 stars!!! As always, I think that it’s important to point out that Mary E. Pearson is the most underrated author in YA fantasy. And for the life of me, I can’t understand why that is! Her world-building, character development, and plot progression abilities are superb! This was supposed to be a buddy read with Diana, but she went POOF, so...\_(ツ)_/I’d also l...

    We were alone, we had each other, and we had a whole wilderness ahead of us.Dance of Thieves was a wish come true. I absolutely loved The Remnant Chronicles, so I was more than happy to read a novel set in the same universe. You can call it capitalism, but I'll read anything that has something to do with my beloved Lia and Rafe. Their special cameo was so satisfying that it almost made me forget about the one and only problem that I had with this...

    *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...
  • Cinda
    This is everything I love in a fantasy--stellar world building, flawed characters who leap from the page, and high stakes treachery. Also steamy romance. Highly recommended.
  • Tricia Levenseller
    Loved this book! Mary writes such rich worlds and swoony romances. The characters were so easy to relate to, and the plot was fantastic. An all-around great read that I highly recommend!

    “What is this, Kazi?I knew what he meant. This. What was this between us? Just what game were we playing?I had wondered too. Because now our kisses were filled with pauses, our gazes filled with more questions instead of fewer.I don’t know, Jase.What do you feel?Your lips, your hands, your heartbeat.No, Kazi, in here, what do you feel in here?His finger stroked a line down the center of my chest.I felt an ache pressing within. A need I couldn...

  • Katrin D
    I have to admit that my expectations for this book were quite high. I remember that I wasn’t the biggest fan of “The Kiss of Deception” the first time I read it, but completely adored the other two books in the series, which prompted me to reread the first book (spoiler: I loved it the second time around). Which is all why I was truly expecting to adore every single page between the covers of “Dance of Thieves”. But I...didn’t. Initia...
  • 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...
  • Lisa
    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...
  • Sara Saif
    There’s a special word I reserve for books such as this. And that is: Bakwaas. It’s Urdu for ‘rubbish’ or ‘garbage’ only ten times sassier and meaner. If the last 200 pages (of this 700 page book) hadn’t been as redeeming as they were, I would have said this with considerably more venom and rage. As it is, I’m only feeling irritated at the moment.Let me get the good out first because it’s short. A)The writing was great and B) th...
  • Christy (TheReaderBee)
    Dance of Thieves is the first book in a brand new duology by Mary E. Pearson, and is also a spin-off of The Remnant Chronicles trilogy, which happens to be one of my most favorite series ever! Dance of Thieves was one of my most anticipated reads for 2018, and I was SO very excited to finally read this book. Having finally read it, I definitely was not disappointed, and I think it’s a perfect start to what should be a really awesome duology!Bef...

    It started off slow but then it definitely got better.Dance of Thieves was one of those books that I've been dying to dive into. I mean, that list is probably super long.. but at least I'm knocking some out. I absolutely loved Kazi and Jase in this book. However, I did feel like they started off rather fast. Like slow ya hormonal rolls down guys. Calm your tits please. Let's take it nice and slow. Maybe get to know each other. Throughout the book...
  • Stacee
    I was all over this book when I heard Mary talk about it. I loved her other series in this world and couldn’t wait to get back to it. And here we are months later and I’m finally getting to it. Love loved loved Kazi and Jase. They’re both loyal and they don’t trust people easily and I absolutely adored how they clicked so quickly. Their chemistry was fantastic. I also loved her fellow soldiers and his family. And of course getting to see ...

    3.5 StarsI am so thrilled to be back in this world! I’m happy that it’s a whole new story but still has brief mention and appearances of all the characters I loved from the Remnant Chronicles. Ok... The two main characters have quickly become some of my favorites! They are perfectly imperfect! The angst and contempt but utter passion they hold for one another is fantastic!In true Mary E. Pearson fashion, there are betrayals and twists and tur...

    So much girl power here 🌼I'm really surprised for how much I enjoyed this book. Kazi is soft and badass. 💕 Jase's family is cute. Must protect at all costs 🌻
  • Rachel (APCB Reviews)
    Mary E. Pearson is one of my favorite authors because she crafts such beautiful plots with a unique flair. I enjoyed The Kiss of Deception series and was excited when I heard that Dance of Thieves would be a spin-off duology taking place six years after the end of The Beauty of Darkness and following fresh characters.Kazi is an elite guard for the Queen of Venda, tasked with a covert mission that involves exploring the northern reaches of the con...

    Fantasy - Young Adult - Romance Dance of Thieves helped me crawl from my reading slump.This book made me want to put off all responsibilities and read everything else Mary E. Pearson has ever written.When I found out that Dance of Thieves is a spin-off of a previously written series by Mary E. Pearson, I became even more excited! I am currently on a book buying ban as I save for my wedding and future home, but as soon as its over you know what I...
