Time to add another flawless addition to my collection!!! Everything in this book was to die for, and I can’t wait to read the next one. I don’t even know where to start since I loved it all, so this is going to be in a very random order. Oh, first off loved the maps every book should include maps if it’s a fantasy world(especially if it’s beautifully done and detailed like this one). But the map was a small fry compared to the amazingness of Jase and Kazi. They were amazing separate but even better together. That’s because they are the perfect example of a couple that challenges each other, which in turn makes them both better people. This book is also another remarkable example of how I prefer to consume romance books. That way is that all the other intrigue, action, and plot twist make the romance seem like a happy prize at the end and not the only focus. I just like it better when a book’s only focus isn’t just romance and Dance of Thieves excelled at the perfectly.
I even had an almost sadomasochistic relationship with the pain of not knowing if Jase and Kazi would end up together. It was soooooo fucking stressful, hoping against all hope that everything will work out but not seeing how it possibly could. At one point, it was so bad that I did something I try to never do, I skimmed the last page just to see if they were talking nicely together. I know I’m terrible, but even when I had that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow to look out for it was still stressful. And I loved every painful second of it! (Although I do hope I never have to go through that again in the next book.)
There are even more minor details that I was extremely fond of, such as the riddles, the repetition of certain thoughts, and of course the tattoos. I am a humongous sucker for characters with tattoos, especially huge cool-ass tattoos. Basically, I couldn’t get enough of this book and think it 100% gets a 10 out of 10.
