Dance of Thieves

By Mary E. Pearson

A formidable outlaw family that claims to be the first among nations.

A son destined to lead, thrust suddenly into power.

Three fierce young women of the Rahtan, the queen’s premier guard.

A legendary street thief leading a mission, determined to prove herself.

A dark secret that is a threat to the entire continent.

When outlaw leader meets reformed thief, a cat-and-mouse game of false moves ensues, bringing them intimately together in a battle that may cost them their lives―and their hearts.

Blog discussion:  When Kazi discovers Ballenger family is harboring the captain who betrayed the crown, she makes choices that will alter her relationship with Jase forever.

  1. One word. Wow.

    -This book has astonished my mind completely. Dance of Thieves has got be one of the most adventurous book I’ve ever read. The relationship between Kazi and Jase shook me to the core. I just love their chemistry! All the action and voyage these two discover on the way, while trying to save themselves, just brings me edging for more!
    -Not gonna lie, the beginning got me very confused. However, as more chapters goes on, more background knowledge gets revealed and connections start to form.
    -You know who Kazi reminds me of? The main character for “Daughter of the Pirate King”. Their personalities are similar and their character- oh yes. I just love how they both are mysterious tricksters, always full of sas and sarcasm , and ready to show girl power! Woman like them are the best to read, not trying to offend anyone.
    It may seem boring at first, but throughout the book, it becomes better and exciting.

    Give this book a try! I recommend 🙂

  2. I’m going to be completely honest.

    When I first picked up this book, it was because I liked the cover and it reminded me of one of my own books. When I got to the point where Jase and Kazimyrah were lost in the woods, I didn’t know what I was getting into. But wow, am I glad I kept reading. All the of the fun, witty characters (especially Synové!), the phenomenal world-building, and the clever plot points kept me reading nonstop until the end! I was beaming when I read that last page of the book, and I can’t wait to get the sequel!

    As for the discussion, I believe Kazi handled the situation well for her training. I believe Jase will forgive her, and so will the rest of the Ballengers. There was no way to know that the drugs had been replaced, and believe me, I was surprised. I think that she took the best plan of action, and it would have gone fine if Jase hadn’t ruined it. However, I am glad that he did.

  3. At the beginning of the story I felt a little confused about what was going on and the whole setting, but as I kept reading, chapter after chapter, it just kept becoming more captivated, and I ended up really enjoying this book!
    For the blog discussion, I feel that Kazi could have taken a different route to her plan if she would have realized that Jase seemed more lenient and optimistic, if she would have just simply tried to talk with him more about the things she had seen and heard. From being able to read both sides of the story, many situations and injuries could have been avoided if the two had communicated better and weren’t so withholding of their thoughts, ideas, and plans.
