Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted at Breaking The Spine that spotlights those can't-wait-to-get-my-hands-on-them books that we are eagerly awaiting!
What book am I hoping-it-get-here-already-cause-I-can't-wait this week? Gates of Thread And Stone by Lori M Lee!!
"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 am I eagerly awaiting Gates of Thread And Stone? Well, I had been following Lori on Twitter for a while once she announced that she was going to publish her book and when I read the summary I was hooked! A girl that can manipulate the threads of time? A city that is a Labyrinth? A girl that doesn't know about her past?? I cannot wait to read all about it! And I've been so much in the mood for fantasy as of late!
What are you all (im)patiently awaiting this week?
