forgettable. that’s it, that’s the review.
this is just one of those stories that really gets everything right. the plot is super engaging, i would die for any of the characters, and the writing feels like breathing.
i wasnt the biggest fan of the remnant chronicles, but i will say i am glad i read them because it just added so much more to the background context and history of the story. i love how this series expands and builds upon the original series, but is such a strong standalone story in its own right.
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

I'm sorry I couldnt help myslef! Okay now onto the review
“Choose your words carefully, even the words you think, because they become seeds, and seeds become history.”
OH MY GOD!!! MY FAV READ AS FAR AS 2021. I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS BOOK!
Ballenger family is feared nad respected for the power they hold. In a family of problemakers and outlaws Jase is no exception. Taking on the role of the Hier and the ruler, he mus ...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
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
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

Review in a Nutshell: Dance of Thieves surprised me. I knew I would enjoy it, but I never expected to become completely obsessed with it. This book is so fun, and full of so many of the best possible tropes.

“Hear the language that isn’t spoken, for everyone can hear spoken words, but only a few can hear the heart that beats behind it.”
Enemies-to-lovers, forced proximity, knife-to-throat trope, this book had everything I wanted to read!
Both Kazi and Jase are such unique and well-written main characters. Kazi’s backstory and Jase’s history were so intriguing and emotional. They were beautiful together, but I wouldn’t exactly say this is the typical enemies-to-lovers where they absolu ...more
Romance, betrayal, secrets, lies, great families, friendships, rich history, great characters, I had a blast listening to this addictive story! The Ballingers were awesome, and I loved Kazi even more than ...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
it was utter perfection and the TENSION between Jase and Kazi was so thick, you could cut it with a knife. i would say that the beginning was a little slow paced, but after the first 100 pages or so, it starts to pick up speed and trust me when i say it was worth it. this book truly does take you through a journey of character growth and development fo ...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

According to the dictionary, the word Obsess means preoccupy or fill the mind of someone continually and to a troubling extent
That was me reading this. I don't think i stopped reading this once i started, except for sleeping and eating!
To be honest, i didn't really know what to expect from this but i'm glad I decided to read it.
Dance of Thieves is about two characters who both have their POV. One is a girl called Kazi, who was sent by the queen to hunt down a dangerous fugitive ...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

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.”
