GATES OF THREAD AND STONE comes out August 5, 2014!

Author: Lori M. Lee
Release Date: Aug. 5, 2014
Publisher: Skyscrape



The cover is so pretty, isn't it? It makes you sit up and take notice! I've had this one on my TBR wishlist for over a month since first hearing about it, and I've since had other people tell me to look forward to it. So now I'm telling you to look forward to it this summer!

It sounds like such a great fantasy, and the idea of being the only one able to manipulate threads reminds me of CREWEL by Gennifer Albin. Plus, it mentions a Labyrinth, and that is intriguing in and of itself, even if there's no Greek mythology involved!

This one sounds and looks fantastic. Is it August yet???


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.

What are you anxiously waiting for this Wednesday?
