Swoony Boys Podcast Episode 71: Author Talk featuring Mary E. Pearson

Vow of Thieves

We’re so excited to be participating in the Vow of Thieves tour today with an extra-special Author Talk episode featuring author Mary E. Pearson! She’s the author of The Remnant Chronicles, Jenna Fox Chronicles, and our favorite Jase-filled The Dance of Thieves duology. Of course, it wouldn’t be as fun if we didn’t have our favorite twinnies, Erin and Jaime, from Fiction Fare with us. You’re in for a treat today, pretties, so go grab a snack and have a listen. Don’t forget to let us know what you think in the comments below.

About Mary E. Pearson

Mary E Pearson

Mary E. Pearson is the NYT bestselling and award-winning author of eleven YA novels and one novella. Her works include the completed trilogy, The Remnant Chronicles, which in a starred review, Publisher’s Weekly called “masterfully crafted.” Her favorite activities as a child were climbing tall trees imagining she was a hero in some fantastical world, or running along fence tops and roofs pretending she was a spy with a bagful of amazing gadgets. She was rarely herself. Amazingly, she never broke a bone until she caught a basketball in gym class. Catching real balls was not her forte. These days she continues to live in make-believe worlds she creates in her books. Her latest 2-book series, Dance of Thieves, allows her do all kinds of dangerous things without breaking any bones. So far.

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 the two of them will meet all challenges side by side, together at last.

But an ominous warning mars their journey back, and in their rush to return to Tor's Watch, just outside the fortress walls, they are violently attacked and torn apart―and each is thrust into their own new hell.

Unsure whether the other is alive or dead, Kazi and Jase must keep their wits among their greatest enemies and unlikeliest allies. And all the while, Death watches and waits.
