Dance of Thieves (Dance of Thieves #1) by Mary E. Pearson
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.
Have any of you read the Remnant Chronicles? I fell in love with that series so of course I was so excited to see this new off shoot series. The story has characters from the previous series and is set in the same place (ish) so things feel familiar, yet different.
Woosha, Kazi and Jase are two explosive people! Determined, stubborn, fierce, loyal, dangerous. They are the kind of people you want to have on your side. As they play this cat and mouse game of control and secrets, they move closer together, then farther apart, then back together again. It's quite the dance which makes the title of this book perfect.
This story is full of intrigue, action, a little romance and always danger. I loved that the story started out with a great forward momentum that didn't ever let up. It was exciting and I loved it. I cannot wait for the next book!!
