Kirkus Reviews
Kazi and Jase's trials continue in the sequel to Dance of Thieves (2018).Elite soldier (and skilled thief) Kazi and Jase Ballenger, new head of his dynastic family, are madly in love and arriving back at Jase's home of Tor's Watch after a productive meeting with the Queen of Venda. They have good news for Jase's people and are eager to share it, but a reunion with his family is not to be: A power-hungry schemer has taken over Tor's Watch. He has years of simmering resentment fueling his rage, not to mention a band of mercenaries at his command. And now he has Kazi. Jase must rally his allies to bring down a truly vile and cunning villain, but don't count Kazi out. She has a few tricks up her sleeve, although an old enemy lurks in the shadows. Readers unfamiliar with the first volume might get a bit lost, but those who like their fantasy dark, dark, dark will be thrilled, because there will be blood-buckets of it. Kazi and Jase's every victory is hard won and their loyalty to each other, their family, and the people who depend on them never wavers. Pearson throws in lots of crowd-pleasing twists along with brutal, unflinching battle scenes and oodles of intrigue. Most main characters assume a white default.A smashing, satisfying adventure. (Fantasy. 14-18)
Starred Review ALA Booklist
*Starred Review* This breathtaking sequel to Dance of Thieves (2018) delivers on the ominous promise made in its predecessor's final pages. Having reached happy arrangements both politically and romantically, soldier-thief Kazi of Brightmist and outlaw leader Jase Ballenger return to the Ballengers' independent kingdom of Tor's Watch only to find it under siege. Within moments, Jase is shot and Kazi captured, and their bright hopes for the future have slipped away. Separated, each not knowing the fate of the other, Kazi and Jase find themselves navigating two very different, treacherous worlds and facing down an enemy they never saw coming. Like Dance of Thieves, this sequel delivers layers of political intrigue and twist after twist; while Jase and Kazi spend much of the book apart and readers may miss their banter, this second volume improves upon its predecessor when it comes to pacing, and both its stakes and its villain are even more ominous. The two volumes work most effectively as a pair e seeds for this book were planted skillfully throughout the first, but it is here that they take glorious root. Fans of Pearson's Remnant Chronicles will be tuning in, but by now, Kazi and Jase will have surely won hearts of their own.

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.
