Dance of Thieves by Mary E. Pearson is set in the same world as The Remnant Chronicles. I've now caught up with all the books in The Remnant Chronicles. Although Dance of Thieves started a little slow, when it kicked in, I couldn't put it down.
A YA fantasy with romance and adventure, likable characters, and secret missions. The relationship between Kazi and Jase begins with anger and suspicion and quickly proceeds to secret attraction and respect, but there are suspicions even as they learn to trust each other. Dance of Thieves is a YA novel with a certain innocent charm.
The pacing varies, and there are a few sections that could have been more concisely rendered, but truthfully, I didn't mind much as it was a world I became committed to and didn't want to end.
The plot is completed in one sense, but the last chapter is a kind of brief "preview" of what will provide the complication in the next book.
Read in June; blog review scheduled for July 26.
