Welcome to this week’s edition of Wishlist Wednesday! Today I am featuring Dance of Thieves by Mary E. Pearson. This new fantasy series sounds incredible, and I am so excited that it is set in The Remnant Chronicles world.
Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about and have yet to read. It is a spin-off of the original meme, Waiting on Wednesday that was formerly hosted by Breaking the Spine.
THIS WEEK’S BOOK:Title: Dance of Thieves
Author: Mary E. Pearson
Publisher: Henry Holt and Co.
Publication Date: August 7, 2018
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.
I have only read the first book in The Remnant Chronicles series, The Kiss of Deception. I read it during the Summer TBR Wipeout last year, and I really enjoyed it. Hopefully I am able to read the other instalments soon. I had better get on it before Dance of Thieves comes out!
