Listened to this as an audiobook and thoroughly enjoyed the narration. The tumultuous relationship of Kazi and Jase as well as the intrigue of who is plotting to bring down whom make this a very entertaining listen. ( )

It took me a little while to catch on but once I did and truly started figuring out the characters, I couldn’t stop reading! Mary Pearson is a great writer and I could imagine the world she created. I’m looking forward to reading the next book to see where Jase and Kazi end up and to find out more about that cliffhanger!! ( )

I have to admit I have never read "The Remnant Chronicles", so I had no idea what to expect, but many year ago I read "The Adoration of Jenna Fox", by the same author, and loved it. So I started "Dance of Thieves" on a hopeful note and I thoroughly enjoyed the novel. It was full of action and suspense, the world building was excellent and the characters were all well-developed and interesting, especially Kazi, the main protagonist. She was such a strong character and was intelligent, ruthless, determined, brave, devious, loyal and kind. I also loved Jase and his large, boisterous family (especially Lydia and Nash) and Wren and Synove, Kazi's fellow Rhatan soldiers. Each of them was flawed and had secrets, but they also had depth and heart. I adored them all.

The romance between Jase and Kazi developed perfectly. Neither trusted the other completely yet they had to rely on each other to escape slave hunters and survive the wilderness, all the while hiding their true motives. The banter between the two of them was a highlight of the novel and kept the plot flowing. I was cheering for them from the start, and I thought the dual narrative was very well done.

Overall, "Dance of Thieves" was a very entertaining read with lots of twists and turns, lies and betrayals. However, it finished happily, but with a cliffhanger, and I am looking forward to reading the sequel. ( )

I absolutely loved this! It was my first book by Mary E. Pearson, and I had no idea it was tied to another trilogy (The Remnant Chronicles) that's set in the same world. Other reviewers have mentioned familiar characters, and a familiarity with the world, so I'm looking forward to reading it soon! However, I had no trouble reading this one without any prior knowledge of the world. Everything made total sense.

First of all, the narration for this was amazing! I requested a review copy of Vow of Thieves, but I honesty want to wait for the audiobook. It was that good! It really added another layer to the characters and the overall story.

Speaking of the characters, they're all beautifully complex and interesting. I was uncertain about Jase at the beginning, because he seemed like a bully, but we quickly learn what motivates him, and why his family is determined to present a united front. Their idea of territory is a little tricky, which does cause them some problems (if they can see it, it's theirs), but I enjoyed watching the Ballenger's compromise with Kazi and her friends.

The world they live in has a very rich history, and it was fun learning about new places. It's a vast world with very unique concepts, and despite being fictional, felt completely real.

Additionally, I loved the riddles Kazi was always sharing with Jase! They were clever and fun to figure out. Also, his stories about the Ballenger's and their origins, were equally fascinating. I think Jase and Kazi really complimented each other, and not just romantically. They challenged one another, and were both very dedicated to their roles in life.

Kazi had an interesting backstory, and I'm curious if we'll learn more about it in the next book. Kazi's life changed drastically after a sudden loss, but an unexpected kindness sent Kazi down a different path that altered her world forever. Both instances shaped the person she is today, and made her really good at what she does. Wren and Synove, the Ballenger siblings, and even the random people on the street were all wonderful. It's clear the author put a lot of thought and love into creating memorable characters. There were a few that I loved to hate, others I felt indifferent about, and those that left me feeling like there was more to their respective stories. I have a feeling not everyone is who they say they are.

There were a lot of twists that I didn't see coming, although the characters were equally surprised. I liked learning new information with them, instead of determining what would happen in advance. Their reactions felt like my reactions, and really intensified the entire experience.

I really, really recommend this one! It doesn't matter if you've read the other trilogy, because Dance of Thieves can easily stand on its own. The characters are fleshed-out, the story was captivating and engaging, and the history made me believe I was somewhere else. The story was detailed, but there was no wasted information. Everything the author said, we needed to know. We might not have known we needed it at the time, but things had a way of reappearing when I least expected them to.

Also, I just want to say that Synove's revenge was perfect.

The ending wasn't what I was expecting, but in the best possible way. I'm also really looking forward to the next book, because even though the first book had resolution, the author made sure to dangle something juicy at the very end. Is it August yet? I need Vow of Thieves in my life!

I've got to be completely honest, the first time I started this book I didn't like it. I thought it was boring and a bit trite BUT I wanted to give it a fair shot so after a short hiatus I plunged right back in. The second time around it felt like I picked up a completely different book. I'm not sure if it was just the headspace I was in or if the story just needed a little more time to come together BUT whatever the reason, the change was dramatic. So, if you are stalled in the beginning and are questioning its worthiness then I am here to advise you to dig in and keep going because it is SO worth it!!

I absolutely LOVED this book!! Is there a yummy romance? Yes! Is it an insta-love? Heck no and thank the literary gods for that because it was a hate --> love slow burn, just the way it should be. Did it manhandle and overtake the entire plot you might ask? I'm happy to report that it was just the right amount of Amore. Though there were no sexy-time scenes the rapport was sweet yet palpable.

Did I mention the writing? WELL the writing turned out to be far from trite. It was compelling and sonorous though not so cutesy as to be nauseatingly saccharine. I also loved the riddles, especially the last one, they were well worded and helped move the plot in a fun way. I have to admit that I have not read the Remnant Chronicles (yet) but after having been gifted and then devouring this book I will definitely be checking out the previous series which happens to be set in the same world AND what a world it is!! There are assassins and cowboys and dirty captains/magistrates/cousins/kings(?!?) et al. There is Love and betrayal and devious machinations abound AND did you say you like your characters armed and dangerous? If you're in the market for some kickass female characters then this book is for you! The world building is lush and the characters are expertly crafted. I loved SO many of them I won't give a list BUT I will give honorable mention to our two MCs, our dueling POV voices, swoon worthy Jase and our uncommon thief Kazi...they were both beatific/ relatable/damaged/imperfectly human and their trials (as well as their budding affection for one another) felt torturous...in a good way.

Overall, this was such a happy surprise that I am both kicking myself for not reading it sooner and glowing because I got to savor it longer. I dreaded reaching the end and MAN what an ending it was! Warning: there is a cliffhanger so if you are not into stewing in a batch of What-if(s) for a while then maybe you should wait until the next book is out before starting this one...BUT definitely start this at some point, you won't be disappointed!! Personally I'm going to sit in a corner and stew until August 2019 when book #2, Vow of Thieves, comes out.

~Enjoy
