I'm waiting for:
(Gates of Thread and Stone, #1)
By: Lori M. Lee
Release Date: August 5th, 2014
Genres: YA Fantasy
In the Labyrinth, we had a saying: keep silent, keep still, keep safe.
In a city of walls and secrets, where only one man is supposed to possess magic, seventeen-year-old Kai struggles to keep hidden her own secret—she can manipulate the threads of time. When Kai was eight, she was found by Reev on the riverbank, and her “brother” has taken care of her ever since. Kai doesn’t know where her ability comes from—or where she came from. All that matters is that she and Reev stay together, and maybe one day move out of the freight container they call home, away from the metal walls of the Labyrinth. Kai’s only friend is Avan, the shopkeeper’s son with the scandalous reputation that both frightens and intrigues her.
Then Reev disappears. When keeping silent and safe means losing him forever, Kai vows to do whatever it takes to find him. She will leave the only home she’s ever known and risk getting caught up in a revolution centuries in the making. But to save Reev, Kai must unravel the threads of her past and face shocking truths about her brother, her friendship with Avan, and her unique power.
Why I'm waiting:
Gates of Thread and Stone sounds AMAZING. It just does. The cover is beautiful, the title is luring and I want and need to have it within my grasp. Time travel stories never fail to jump out at me ever since I became an obsessive Doctor Who fan. When written right they sing to my very soul. The idea of changing events or having any power to do with time is worth mine. It's also fantasy so that is a big draw. Gates of Thread and Stone has a fascinating premise so I'm going to be waiting and hoping it does not let me down—I don't think that it will!
