Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
This week I’m bringing spot-light to a book that I have been waiting for quite a while and it’s my second most anticipated book of this year – Dance of Thieves (Dance of Thieves #1) by Mary E. Pearson. This series will be in the same universe as The Remnant Chronicles, which is one of my all time favourite series, so of course, I can’t wait to be back in this mystical and intriguing world.
Expected publication is August 7th, 2018 and here is the synopsis from Goodreads:
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.
The synopsis sounds amazing and I’m expecting this to be one of the best books of the year, so I hope that my high expectations and hopes won’t be crashed as it so often can happen with so highly anticipated books 🙂 If you haven’t read The Remnant Chronicles yet, then now is your chance to do so. Afterwards, just remember to pick up this book as well 😉
