Waiting on Wednesday: The Dance of Thieves

 "Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, what's really got my pages in a twist is...

Dance of Thieves
(Dance of Thieves #1)
Publication Date: August 7, 2018
Hardcover, 384 pages, Henry Holt
Genres: YA, Fantasy

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 Thoughts

I’m wary about this new spinoff series. While the original Remnant Chronicles trilogy was one of my favorites, I don’t know about this one. I kind of don’t even want to read the description, for fear of putting myself off. I recently grabbed an ARC of this one at work, so I’m thinking I’ll just go into it blind, with little to no expectations. That should help, right?

What book are you waiting for this Wednesday?
