Dance of Thieves
A formidable outlaw family that claims to be the first among nations.
A son destined to lead, thrust suddenly into power.
Three fierce young women of the Rahtan, the queen's premier guard.
A legendary street t ...more
forgettable. that’s it, that’s the review.
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 still not entirely sure where the new country/land is ...more
"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 like to make note that although this is technically a s ...more
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’t name.
I don’t know.
I didn’t want to know.
Let me tast ...more
And 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!
"Get him and get out. That was our task, and that was it. I told them that we also had the bad timing of being plummeted into the middle of a power war ...more
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't think I went into this novel with overly high e ...more

MY GOD HELP ME HOW CAN I MOVE ON FROM THIS?!?!?
i mean, it's possible that i love this book even more than kingdom of ash. and i had just finished that book yesterday! my heart was still full of emotions. now with THIS DAMN BOOK, i was BEYOND CONTENT i could burst into smithereens!!!
i was really looking forward to getting back into this world ever since the remnant chronicles became one of my most favorite series in the whole world ...more
But I...didn’t. Initially.
The story itself starts small, as all good stories should ...more
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 though, I was shipping them so much that I didn't ...more
Kazi and Jase are both flawed as hell but the have a solid moral compass for the ultimate right and wrong and it makes for one hell of a compelling story when they aren’t on the same sides but you want both of ...more
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) the last 200 pages were fast-paced, happening and provoked a certain m...more
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 ...more
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 Lia and Rafe was extra fun.
Plot wise, there is a lot goin ...more
Before I started Dance of Thieves, I decided to re-read ...more
Kazi was a no nonsense, relentless, fierce Rhatan, a member of the queen’s personal and most trusted soldiers.
She was sent on a mission by the queen to capture and bring back a traitor. The journey was full of adventure; she was captured, fell in love, uncovered answers to her riddled past, formed alliances and most importantly completed her mission by capturing the traitor to answer for his crimes.

I pretended I didn’t know what he was talking about. “Who did what?”
“Who made you afraid of an open world? An open sky? Was it Venda? Your parents?”
“No one did anything,” I answered quietly.
“Then hold on to me,” he said. “Let me show you the stars.”
