Overview

Vow of Thieves is the thrilling sequel to Dance of Thieves, set in the same world as Mary E. Pearson's New York Times-bestselling Remnant Chronicles.

Kazi and Jase have survived, stronger and more in love than ever. Their new life now lies before them—the Ballengers will be outlaws no longer, Tor's Watch will be a kingdom, and Kazi and Jase will meet all challenges side by side, together at last.

But an ominous warning mars their journey back, and they soon find themselves captured in a tangled web of deceit woven by their greatest enemies and unlikeliest allies, a place where betrayals run deeper and more deadly than either had thought possible, and where timeless ambitions threaten to destroy them both.

I was not emotionally prepared for this book at all. I cried, I laughed and like Kazi I was devastated when her and Jase were separated. I devoured Dance of Thieves a week before the release of Vow of Thieves. It was everything I needed after The Remnant Chronicles. I'm always a bit weary of companion novels, but I honestly might think this duology topped the original series for me. Don't get me wrong, Kiss of Deception will always have a special place in my heart, but the writing, plot and character development were just amazing in this book.

VOW OF THIEVES is a thrilling end to a wonderful spin-off YA fantasy. Although a spin-off series from the Remnant Chronicles, this duology has a different feel and certainly stands on its own rights. We are also introduced to different parts of this world that give their own flavor to the book. In the first book, we were introduced to Kazimyrah (Kazi), a very talented thief who is also called Ten because she has never been caught and so has all ten fingers. She now works for the Vendan Queen and was sent on an assignment that forever changed her life in the first book. Now, she is on her way back to Tor’s Watch in this sequel. Jase is the other main character, and we get his and Kazi’s points-of-view in alternating chapter. Jase is the Patrei of Tor’s watch, beloved by the people, he oversees the town and the popular trading market there. In the first book, we watched Kazi and Jase fall in love, while also surviving being captured in human trafficking. As they return to Tor’s Watch together, Kazi’s biggest fear is that Jase’s family who are very important to him, the Ballengers, will not accept her as his significant other. Everything is about to head into further chaos and danger when they are attacked upon arrival. Separated, they must face separate battles for survival, not sure if the other has even survived but hoping against hope to be reunited. What I loved: This book leaves off a lot of the world building from the first and so moves very quickly. With plotting, adventures/action, and intense battle sequences, this book will keep the reader turning pages until the satisfying ending. I still absolutely adore the romance in this duology, and while it takes a backseat in this sequel, it is strongly present. With fascinating riddles (Kazi is quite clever at creating these) and historical texts also appearing throughout, this book is fully developed and unbelievably engaging. Kazi is everything you could want in a heroine and then some, and Jase compliments her character perfectly. Even for readers who did not love the Remnant Chronicles, I would highly recommend trying this spin-off series- it has a different flavor, satisfying for people who loved the original series and different enough for fans of other types of fantasies. Final verdict: Intense, thrilling, and clever, VOW OF THIEVES is a can’t miss book for fans of YA fantasy. I highly recommend reading this duology if you love slow-building romances, action/adventure, and clever plotting. Pearson does not disappoint with these incredible characters and fascinating world! Please note that I received an ARC from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

4.5/5 Stars. After Dance of Thieves, I couldn't wait to see how Mary E. Pearson would wrap up the story of Jase and Kazi. I have to say that Vow of Thieves delivered an experience I won't soon forget! Full of deception and political intrigue, the story begins with Jase and Kazi going to Tor's Watch, only...the unexpected happens, and then the nail-biting begins. Torn apart, each character must face demons real and imagined, fight for survival, and try to find their way back into the other's arms...but can they? It's nice to read a story about characters that are strong together, yet also strong apart, unique individuals who have their own strengths, yet also drawn to each other. I really appreciate that the story is told from separate points-of-view, and this duality is also reinforced by this story being a duology. I really enjoyed the pace of the book, the character development, the magical elements found in the book and the way the story wrapped up. This is one of those duologies that were so well written there was no need for it to be made into a trilogy. I loved it and it is one I will be revisiting many times in the future.

I received an ARC of this book from Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Wow. Just wow. Mary Pearson has just become one of my favorite authors after reading this book. It really puts the perfect punctuation on the end of a thrilling universe. Person truly has a gift for story-telling. She kept me guessing at every turn, and is especially masterful at withholding bits of important information until the right moment. Her writing style makes you continue to yearn for more. I simply couldn't put it down! As far as characters go, Kazi is a beautifully developed character. The reader feels fully immersed in her thoughts, feelings, and actions by the end of the book. Jase is an extremely lovable character as well. On the flip side, Montegue is truly someone to hate, and Pearson expertly cultivates a sense of loathing within the reader to make the reader feel as if they are part of the story. I was easily able to picture everything that was happening as if it was happening right in front of me. I appreciate that everything is not sunshine and rainbows with Pearson. She always manages to weave in some heartbreak to her stories. All in all, I applaud Pearson on another successful and captivating read. I would recommend this to any and all avid readers.

Love, loyalty, bravery and perseverance! Thanks to NetGalley, Edelweiss and Delacorte Press for the opportunity to read and review Vow of Thieves by Mary E. Pearson! Kazi and Jase are heading to his home when they receive a cryptic message that they’re not sure they can trust. The message says that Samuel is dead. They’re devastated and Jase takes off towards his home, with Kazi close behind. They’re attacked and the last thing she knows about Jase is that he’s been shot with several arrows and one of those arrows was embedded in his chest. Someone grabs Jase. Later, Kazi sees a severed hand with his ring on it. She continues staying in Jase’s kingdom even though it’s been overrun with attacks and most of his family fled and is in hiding. Kazi stays to help Lydia and Nash, Jase’s young siblings. Kazi isn’t sure if she can trust anyone and the danger spirals around her. I can't say much more without giving some of the story away! An intriguing story of love, loyalty, bravery and perseverance, 5 stars! * I received a complimentary copy of this book for voluntary review consideration and all opinions and thoughts are my own.

A worthy sequel to Dance of Thieves. Kazi and Jase ride into unimaginable danger as they return to Tor's Watch. Evil has erupted, invaded, conquered. It is up to Kazi and Jase to make things right. A story you can't put down.

After reading and devouring Dance of Thieves, I started Vow as soon as I got it in my greedy hands. I love love love Kazi and Jase. I love how they’re strong on their own, but even better and stronger together. I love their banter and sweet swoons and basically everything between them. Plot wise, man...I wasn’t ready at all. This is a roller coaster of kissing and fighting and stabbing and explosions and treachery. Throw in a couple of surprising reveals and character appearances and I didn’t know what to do with myself. Overall, it was a phenomenal story that was equal parts maddening and satisfying. Huge thanks to Mary for these amazing books. **Huge thanks to Henry Holt for providing the arc free of charge**

*** 4.5 out of 5 starts *** You sigh; you gasp; your breathless through it all. It's a story that clinches at your young heart as Kazi and Jase fight through for love. It's the embodiment of what young love and adventure is. The anticipation and allure of the world-building, just adds to the twists and harrowing turns that you get from this plot. Beautifully written and emotionally complex characters will leave you crying for more. *** I received a free copy of this book via NetGalley and am voluntarily leaving a review.***

I love this series more and more with each book. While Vow of Thieves is a duology, there is a trilogy before which is just as good. The story is visceral and emotional and filled with adventure. I am captured from the beginning and the action never stops down to the satisfying last page. Alternating POV between Kazi and Jace works well as even when they are separated they cross paths without even realizing which only enhances the story. Characters from previous books reappear and the story is so thoroughly brought together, she may have had this whole series thought through from the very beginning. We can only hope there is another spin off!

I received an eARC from Netgalley. Thanks to them and the publisher. All opinions are my own. I absolutely LOVED Dance of Thieves and was really worrying that the conclusion would not compare. Well, turns out I didn’t need to worry at all. I thoroughly enjoyed this one too. I found myself reading this any chance I could get, it’s very captivating and fast paced. I still adore Kazi and Jase and their relationship. It’s definitely couple goals for sure. There were a lot of things happening in this book, lots of action and twists. I loved the ending which really got the feelings going. Overall, this was a great duology and I think it really enriches the world and adds a lot to the first trilogy.

Thank you to NetGalley and Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group and Henry Holt and Co. (BYR) for the Advance Reader Copy Vow of Thieves (Dance of Thieves #2) by Mary E. Pearson (writer extraordinaire!!!) in exchange for an honest review. I am so thankful to have received the first book in this duology, Dance of Thieves and NOW I am honored to have read this second awesome romance/fantasy! Teens will LOVE this series (I also recommend they read The Remnant Chronicles series too) there is so much moving this story forward, Jase and Kazi are strong protagonists; they complement each other, love each other deeply, and are their best selves when they are together. From page one the plot moves quickly; excitement thrilled this reader as I rooted for Kazi to outwit the overwhelming evil forces that have imprisoned her. She must constantly call up her “thief” mentality to battle King Montegue and his henchmen to valiantly to save Jase’s family. The settings were stark and also beautiful with Jase and Kazi’s journey to Tor’s Watch holding so much hope (for Jase) and fear (for Kazi). All of the characters (both good and evil) are strong under Pearson’s talented hands; we can hate them one minute but they also redeem themselves too. There was so much political backstabbing and family drama but there was always loyalty and history propelling the Ballenger family to never give up hope. I loved this book; did not want it to end; but oh what an ending! Highly recommended!

This book was received as an ARC from Macmillan Children's Publishing Group-Henry Holt and Co. in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own. I was spellbinded by the conflict and drama that both Kazi and Jase underwent when they were living the lives of outlaws. Now, that they are very much in love and together, they can put that life behind them, so they thought. Just when you thought everyone was living happily ever after, a new twist happens that haunts their past and then they jump right into being outlaws again. Former enemies become allies and frenemies and their worst enemies are now after them more than ever before. Each page had to have at least one shock factor and the description and language used throughout the book transported you into their world as if you were on the voyage with them. We will consider adding this title to our YFantasy collection at our library. That is why we give this book 5 stars.

Thank you to Henry Holt & Co and NetGalley for giving me the opportunity to read this eArc. This book wrecked me but in a good way! I had anxiety, heart palpitations and I even cried a few times! Was I expecting any of that? NO. Vow of Thieves continues right after the last chapter and harrowing cliff-hanger from Dance of Thieves. Kazi and Jase return to Tor’s Watch and what greets them is unexpected. From then on, it was non-stop worrying and praying on my part. The world-building is lush as usual and the story is written so well I was wondering if Kazi would get out of this alive. After all she had been through, Kazi needed to make it out alive, she deserved some happiness. At each turn something thwarted Kazi, but this girl has a brain on her like no other. And her fighting skills are just so good, she’s my hero. I love her heart, her penchant for riddles, her skill for thievery, the survival instincts she’s honed because of her past and her will to not die when it seems like hope is lost, “die tomorrow“. Kazi inspires me. Jase and Kazi together are a dream team. Their love is deep but not so consuming that they can’t do things without one another. They weren’t even together in a good chunk of the book, but in spirit, they were pushing one another to keep going. It was all the things I love in a romance between two characters. They are strong together as a couple, but strong also even torn apart. I was swooning all over their relationship, their teasing and banter. I love them. Speaking of this duo – the book once again is told in dual POV. The story flows so well between the two characters and builds up tension where it should. Then there is the supporting cast who is always outstanding. The villain was unpredictable, devious, obsessive, and cunning. Some of my favorite characters reappear in this book, Kazi’s best friends Wren and Synové. These three young ladies make a fierce trio. We also see cameos from characters in Mary E. Pearson other series, The Remnant Chronicles which made me want to reread the series again! I could go on and on about this book, but I don’t want to spoil anything. It is perfection in my eyes. I’ve read very few duologies, but I notice that it’s becoming the trend and personally I’m starting to love it more than trilogies. It keeps the story-telling tight, whereas a trilogy sometimes is one book too long, with a weak finish. If duologies are written like this Dance of Thieves series, then sign me up for more of them! I fell in love with Kazi, her friends, Jase and his crazy, loving family. It ended beautifully. I hope this isn’t the last story in the Remnant world. I want more adventures set in this world or any world that Mary E. Pearson creates. Vow of Thieves is the perfect sequel to an epic series.
