Review of Dance of Kings and Thieves by LJ Andrews

Synopsis:
Dreams will become nightmares…

To take her place as rightful queen, Malin Strom stands by the side of the Nightrender and his guild of thieves in the fight to take a throne she never wanted. Now, as warriors from distant kingdoms answer their call, a new battle begins.

But when dark fae side with the Black Palace, Malin and Kase are forced to take drastic measures if they are to have a hope for victory: forge an unwilling alliance with a cruel sea fae, draw out a cursed beast they thought long dead, even risk the lives of everyone they love by twisting the memories of fate itself.

For Kase and Malin, this fight could be their hard-fought salvation…or a vicious end to everything they love.

Welcome to the final stand in the Eastern Kingdom. Where the stakes are higher, the battles are darker, and the romance is spicier. A wicked spin on Cinderella comes to a head in the final battle of thieves and kings.

Review:
This book had everything! Adventures, risks, stakes! Seeing all of the characters relationships develop and deepen was amazing; the characterization and depth thereof is one of Andrews strong suits for sure. Getting to see more of the characters we know and love from our first three books as well as how they become very tightly knit with Malin and Kase was brilliant and super sweet. I absolutely loved seeing Lumpy’s friend once again. The writing in this was absolutely superb. Even when you thought you knew everything and all the marks, there was still a couple of chapters where everything appears turned about and it really threw me for a lark in the best possible way.

I cannot wait for this series to continue and as I got towards the end I thought, if it didn’t continue with a story for Ari I’d be quite upset so I’m super excited to get to hear more about our former rebel king and current Northern ambassador; I’m only sad I must wait until February to read more!
