Waiting On Wednesday #93: GATES OF THREAD AND STONE by Lori M. Lee (YA)

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by  Breaking the Spine. 

This is were we get to 'spotlight' books that we are anxiously waiting to be released! The ones that we are dying to get our hands on and read into the wee hours of the night and, quite possibly, to make our shelves look all pretty too :)

What I'm waiting for...

by Lori M. Lee
Expected release date: August 5th, 2014
Published by: Skyscape
Genre: Young Adult
Format: Hardback, Paperback, eBook, Audiobook 


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 on GATES OF THREAD AND STONE... 

This book has me on edge just from these key words:
Labyrinth, magic, "manipulate threads of time"!!!

A.G. Howard says it's "inventive, romantic and gripping"!!! 

The covering is stunning, and I am getting such a good vibe from it!
I cannot wait to read this book :)
