Gates of Thread and Stone by Lori M Lee
In the Labyrinth, we had a saying: keep silent, keep still, keep safe.
Life in the Labyrinth isn’t easy. Everyone is afraid of being noticed, standing out, being taken by the gargoyles or by the King’s spies, who always seem to be on top of anyone who doesn’t do as they’re supposed to. And Kai has to be doubly cautious because she has a secret. She can control time. How she has the ability is unknown, as well as where she comes from. Reev found her when she was 8 and took her in as his sister. Since then, she’s been trying hard to earn credits to help get both of them out of the Labyrinth. Until one day when Reev leaves and doesn’t return. She looks for help from Avan, the shopkeeper’s son, who offers to go with her to seek out Reev and find out what happened to him.
This story had a great pace and was easy to follow, even being introduced to villains, beings, and a world unlike our own. Ms Lee writes with a great way of showing us this new and different world without getting hung up on over complicating it. I really enjoyed this book and I was happy to find out it’s the first in a series. The Infinite is the second book and is already been published. I would recommend this book wholeheartedly!
