Goodreads Summary:

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.

My Review:

I absolutely love Mary’s writing. Just like with the Kiss of Deception, Dance of Thieves sucked me right in from the get go! Also if you read the last trilogy, there is a glimpse of a few of the people from it! So I was fangirling about that!!

My favorite aspect of this book was the bond between Kazi and Jase—they were a bucket full of cuteness. Or course being on opposite sides of things caused disagreement and secrets, but it made the story more addicting. Kazi made me frustrated at times, but I understood how she worked because of the way she grew up. However, I also loved her for how she was. Although, Jase was my favorite!

The side characters were great and the world building was excellent. I seriously can’t wait to read the next book and see what happens. I can already tell some serious stuff is going to go down!

How does this book sound to you?

Review: The Beauty of Darkness

Title: The Beauty of Darkness (The Remnant Chronicles #3)

Author: Mary E. Pearson

Date of Publication: August 2nd, 2016

Beauty of Darkness

Goodreads Summary:

Lia and Rafe have escaped Venda and the path before them is winding and dangerous – what will happen now? This third and final book in The Remnant Chronicles is not to be missed.

Bestselling author Mary E. Pearson’s combination of intrigue, suspense, romance and action make this a riveting page turner for teens.

My Review:

This book picks up right where book two left off. Lia is fighting for her life after being shot by two arrows and then falling in the icy water. Rafe is still with her and trying to get her help, and his men are finally able to find them. The Komizar is believed to be dead, but is he really?

This book oh this book I am still so emotional after reading it. All 679 pages of it. It was a slow and lovely burn, and now I do not know what to do with myself. There wasn’t as much romance in it, but the parts that were were so perfect.  I loved Rafe and Lia even though I believe they will always have this stubborn but perfect relationship, but that is what makes them work.

Caden was back, and I loved reading his POV and learning even more about him, and to me I never saw him and Lia as needing a romantic relationship. They are better as friends and having each other’s backs.

Rafe did frustrate me a lot because I just wanted him to leave his kingdom and go to Lia! I understand that is not how things always work.  Lia becomes a stronger character in each one of these books, and I really was proud of who she has become.

There is a lot of heartbreak in this book because as in all these types of books someone has to die.  The action especially towards the end was spot on, and the betrayal throughout was intriguing to see played out.

I just loved all the side characters along with the main characters, and I am just so sad to let them go. I really want an epilogue!!!
