ahhh! she's done it again!

such a great book in the Remnant universe! Mary has hooked me again and I can't wait for her next book. Although not critical, I suggest you read her first series in this Universe, The Kiss of Deception. it's so fun to hear a little about those characters I fell in love with. thanks Mary! Also, great narration!

Fantasy, Adventure and Romance!

My thoughts jumped, my own words taunting me, The thing about a mark is they’ve created lies in their head, a story they’ve invented that they desperately want to believe, a fantasy that merely needs to be fed.


Kazi grew up on the harsh streets, becoming a thief to survive- a dang good one, at that. But now, she was chosen by the Queen to be one her elite guards, but an impulsive move may coast her that. Kazi has the opportunity to redeem herself by going on a mission of importance for the Queen, the person who has so much undeserving faith in her. Jase has just lost his father and now became the ruler of his people, spending his first night as ruler wallowing in his grief and alcohol. When the two have an altercation in streets, they never anticipated being kidnapped by slavers. Banding together (both emotionally and literally by shackles- even though they are enemies- Kazi and Jase have to find their way home and to the truth of their people's conflict.

The world building was amazing and layered, with all the regions and wars as well as histories and people so lovingly craftes. I really wanted a map so I could place all the locations mentioned in the story physically since I am a visual person. This is a book that I would love a map for! And yes, this is a spin-off, but it was such a complete world, plot and characters that there was no need for previous books (but you should read the Remnant Chronicles because they are fantastic!). This was such the perfect blend of court politics and intrigue, betrayal, lies. adventure and feels!

Oh my gosh, Dance of Thieves ended up being so romantic! Seriously, I had no idea what this story was going to be like, but I knew I was going to read this new spin-off series because I enjoyed the Remnant Chronicles so much. Gah, it was so freaking romantic and hug worthy at times, I felt like I needed to swoon- or at least force Kazi to (so not her style though but appropriate for the situation, I think).

“I love you. I love you with every breath, with every thought that’s inside me . I’ve loved you from the first time I kissed you on that ledge. Even before that.”

I shook my head trying to pull away. “Jase, no—”

But he pulled me closer and didn’t stop. “When I asked, What is this? I already knew. I knew what I felt, what I was certain you felt, too, but I was afraid to say it, because it was all new to me. It seemed too soon, too impossible. But everything about us didn’t just feel right, it felt like something rare, something delicate that I was afraid of breaking. Something that only comes along once in a lifetime.”

I loved Kazi, but let's be honest- she may be a kleptomaniac. The girl did have an interesting habit of collecting the most random of trinkets of all varieties. Sure, she is a product of her upbringing, and you do what you need to to survive, but really she is a master thief. She has the most prickly of shells, but inside she was a lonely sad little girl. I loved her riddles, people maneuvering skills and her loyalty. The banter and love between Kazi and her 2 sisters in arms was perfect, you could see the love and bond between the girls and that they would gladly go into battle for each other, no questions asked.

Jase had such a strong moral compass that always pointed true- even though the morals of his people did not always line up with what other thought was right. I did really enjoy the dynamic between Jase and his family, you could see the love as well as the ruler boundaries that were probably hard to hold at times. He was just given a new, terrible and great responsibility yet he held up like a champ (for the most part). He was so caring towards Kazi, even though their purposes were at odds. (sniff sniff)

Ps I loved seeing "the Queen", who I know as Lia be her insightful, protective, queenly self. I will admit after the ending of The Beauty of Darkness, I was hoping for at least a little mention of a romantic connection with a certain wonderful guy, so the ending made my heart ever so happy...

“Do you suppose,” he finally whispered, “that this could be part of making … the best of it?”
...
I was as loyal to her as he was to his family, and I would betray him when the time came. I would bring his family and dynasty to their knees. His world was about to end.
The best of it.
We were only making the best of it.
For now.

The story felt magical and epic and I never wanted it to end. But as per all of Mary's books, the heartbreak and betrayal was strong too. There were moments where I thought my heart was ripped out of my chest, all I hoped for was a HEA...that may not be how this story ends. That last chapter though! I seriously do not know how such a beautiful and real moment could fall apart into such utter heart-wrenching chaos. Sorry for all the words, but I feel like I have a lot to say when it comes to my love of this book, this author and this world. I am so tied in knots, wanting to know where the story will go next. There is no doubt that I will be picking up the next leg of the adventure in this duology as soon as possible.

Loved this!

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 so that was okay. A lot happened in this one book and I would do anything to have the sequel right now. Kazi and Jase were awesome, I loved them both.

You can read this without reading TRC first, but it will spoil something for you about TRC that is really fun in that series. You should read TRC anyway if you haven't yet, because its amazing.

Mary E Pearson is one of my favorite authors, I will read as many books in this world as she puts out and I will love them all.

This audio was really great, I loved the performance.

Great Story!

I loved this audio book. the story was great. Kazy is an interesting and complicated character, bound by loyalty to the Queen. She had a difficult childhood, stealing and pickpocketing after her mother's disappearance. I loved her voice actor. Jace was a great character as well, though I was not fond of the actor's inflections at times.

Gripping and intriguing

Betrayal and truth can be a fine line. Love, money, romance, finance or just survival are things that drive thieves. Great story, loved it all.

Dramatic

This story didn't really catch my interest. I believe I expected something else based on the description. I was very melodramatic and a bit political in the world the author created. I expected something faster paced and not so beat around d the bush-like. It picked up near the end but a little too late for me. If it had that twisting and energy through out, I would have liked it more.

Unexpected

The twists and turns keep you on your toes and the guessing is half the fun. The characters are multifaceted and well developed with personalities strong and relatable. Overall a phenomenal book with a solid reading.

Disappointing

I struggled to finish this book for several reasons.
One was the narrators. Karissa Vacker's parts were fantastic, but the others were over dramatic and difficult to take seriously.
Two was the romance aspect. While there were other great sources of conflict in the story that could have been exploited, too much focus was given to the romance. I found myself getting increasingly frustrated, wanting to read something other than the same repetitive romantic tension. If I'd been reading the physical book, I would have skipped chapters.
Three - cheese and tropes. Also to do with the romance aspect. They were predictable and tired.
This being said, the broader story and world was interesting. It has a fantasy-realm low-key Peaky Blinders feel that was new and intriguing. Mary's writing was easy to read/listen to and she had some fantastic descriptions, though a fair portion of dialogue was cheesy and clunky.
In the end, I'm undecided whether or not to read the sequel. I'm drawn to it for the world, not the characters.

Überragend

Ich bin ein sehr grosser Fan von Pearson. Ihr Schreibstill ist genau nach meinem Geschmack und die Liebesgeschichte erst. Auch dieses Buch habe ich wie die anderen Remnant Chronicles verschlungen und ich bin jetzt richtig traurig, dass es zu Ende ist. Am besten fange ich gleich nochmal damit an. Ich freue mich auch wenn es auf deutsch raus kommt, dann werde ich es auch hören. Hatte nebenbei bei Kindle das eBook und zusätzlich das Hören. Kann es jeden empfehlen, der schon Kuss der Lüge gerne gelesen hat und bereit ist den Weg durch die Cam Leutex erneut zu gehen mit neuen wundervollen Charaktere. Für mich auch wieder eines meiner Lieblings Bücher:))))

Lesevergnügen

Wem die übrigen Remnant-Chroniken gefallen, der wird auch hier nicht enttäuscht, mir gefallen die Dialoge der Charaktere und das von Pearson weiter ausgestaltete Universum.
