Waiting on WednesdayWaiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming book releases that we're especially looking forward to!
Here's what I'm waiting on this week:
Gates of Thread and Stone by Lori M. LeeGuys...the MC can 'manipulate the threads of time'. Eeeeeek!! I like the twist that she's not supposed to have any magic at all, because there's only one all-powerful man who has ALL the power O.O so you just know there's going to be trouble here. Then one of the first words in the blurb is 'labyrinth' and you all know how much I love mazes and labyrinths!! *squee* Oh, this just sounds absolutely amazing and that cover seriously makes me drool just looking at it - it's SO pretty!! I'm super excited about this one: time-travel, fantasy and magic are a winning combination for me any day of the week!
Gates of Thread and Stone #1
Expected Publication: August 5th 2014 by Skyscape
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.
