Waiting on Wednesday (50): Gates of Thread and Stone

Gates of Thread and Stone by Lori M. Lee
Series: Gates of Thread and Stone #1
Publication Date: August 5, 2014
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.
I'm really excited about this one and I wish that August could come faster just so I can read it! So many of my favorite authors have said nothing but great things about the world building and the characters, so I hope I feel the same when I read it! Also, I have a thing for all things time ever since finished Bioshock Infinite, so if these threads are anything like tears then I'm already in love with this book haha!

What are you waiting on? Comment below so I can wait with you!
