Review: Dance of Thieves by Mary E Pearson

I read the Remnant chronicles back in 2016, and oh my god, they were so good! I loved Lia and Rafe and this world so much, so I was so excited to revisit it in Dance of Thieves!

Dance of Theives 4 star 4/5 Stars

Summary from Goodreads: A new novel in the New York Times–bestselling Remnant Chronicles universe, in which a reformed thief and the young leader of an outlaw dynasty lock wits in a battle that may cost them their lives—and their hearts.
When the patriarch of the Ballenger empire dies, his son, Jase, becomes its new leader. Even nearby kingdoms bow to the strength of this outlaw family, who have always governed by their own rules. But a new era looms on the horizon, set in motion by a young queen, which makes her the target of the dynasty’s resentment and anger.
At the same time, Kazi, a legendary former street thief, is sent by the queen to investigate transgressions against the new settlements. When Kazi arrives in the forbidding land of the Ballengers, she learns that there is more to Jase than she thought. As unexpected events spiral out of their control, bringing them intimately together, they continue to play a cat and mouse game of false moves and motives in order to fulfill their own secret missions.

Overall, I loved Dance of Thieves! It was a reallllyyyy long book though, so the first 50 pages went a little slowly, but as soon as I got past the set up at the beginning, I was so hooked! Kazi and Jase are such great main characters and the Ballenger Empire had such a rich history. I feel like the world building within an already build world was so much better than I’ve seen in most spin off series. I would definitely recommend this book!
