Kurzbeschreibung

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.

Lori M. Lee makes her debut with this captivating YA fantasy.

Von Merle am 31. August 2015
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Diese Dystopie spielt 200 Jahre nach einer verheerenden Katastrophe, ausgelöst durch den Missbrauch magischer Kräfte. Die Überlebenden fristen ihr Dasein in einer riesigen Stadt, eingeschlossen durch eine hohe Mauer, bedroht durch genveränderte, menschenfressende Gargoyles.

Die 17-jährige Kai Adahnur wird seit ihrem achten Lebensjahr vom acht Jahre älteren Reev in äusserst ärmlichen Verhältnissen aufgezogen und beschützt. An die Zeit vorher kann sie sich nicht erinnern und Reev beantwortet ihre Fragen danach nicht. Ihre einzigartige Fähigkeit, die Zeit anzuhalten, darf sie nicht zeigen, Magie ist verboten. Als Reev eines Tages urplötzlich verschwindet, macht sie sich auf die gefährliche Suche nach ihm. Begleitet wird sie von ihrem Jugendfreund Avan.

Die Geschichte fängt sehr spannend an, wird langsam aufgerollt und ist gut. Die Charaktere werden langsam enthüllt, die Angst, Eifersucht, Unsicherheit, romantischen Gefühle, und man fühlt mit ihnen. Leider ist der Endteil des Buches nicht stimmig mit dem vorher Geschriebenen, er wirkt gehetzt, alles wird zu plötzlich erzählt und geht in Wohlgefallen auf. Ich hatte das Gefühl, in einem anderen Buch zu stecken. Schade.

Awesome! This story was, though set in a dystopian world, for all intends and purposes, very real. The characters are very well rounded and you really get to know them as to me is a characteristic of a good book. I like how complicated this story gets, especially towards the end. because that again, makes it more real. Nothing is ever easy in life either.

The protagonist and her particular "superpower" has so much potential, (though could also backfire) and I'm really looking forward to where the author decides to take book two. I'll definitely be reading it.

What I think some people may consider a downside to this story is the speed with which you go from a small scale story to epic, infinite beings. Though considering her ability infinite beings are handy to have around to create plots. Maybe. I might have preferred a more gradual ascension and recognition of the protagonist, but this'll do.

At least it was not that bad, that I even did not finish the book, so the 2 Stars, but th
The basic idea behind the setting was promissing, and the first chapters looked good. Unfortunately the further the story went it got more
and more boring.
Seems like the author tried to mix some magic into something similar to the "hunger games" she was not able to get it interesting or consistent.
Some points I did not like:
- The charakters do not gain any depth during the developing story
- the love story is repeated over and over again and stays rather flat nevertheless
- The setting stays steril
- how the magic is working stays completly in the dark except that you become a magician by inheriting the talent.
- try staying on a quadruped at over 200mph with no shielding against the wind and feel free to open a water canteen: I hope physics does not catch up to you
- And then there come the allmighty imortals, which also do not gain any depth and have a rather fuzzy motivation to be in this story at all
- and at the end the dead hero returns - this realy anoid me

The 0.99€ was in my opinion no bargain for this book.

HASH(0x93f2366c) von 5 Sternen Best YA Fantasy I read in 2014 2. Januar 2015
Von Darci Cole - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I loved this book.

If I'm being completely honest, it was a little slow to start, but I knew why. The learning curve for information was s lot to process, so I kept putting it down in order to wrap my mind around things. Not s bad thing, it just is.

These characters were so genuine I feel like they're my best friends. I laughed, I lived, and I found myself saying the dialogue out loud and making the expressions of the characters. (That's how I know I'm invested, when I catch myself doing that.)

My heart broke, and wasn't entirely healed, but I'm looking forward to the sequel in 2015!!!

This book starts with the best opening line I have read in years - 'Death lived in a glass tower at the center of the White Court.'

The rest of it doesn't disappoint. It's been years since I properly delved into the world of YA, and I'm glad that this book was my reintroduction.

The main character is possessed of genuine personality, humor, and conviction. She forgives, but not too easily, and she trusts, but not too blindly. I adore her for it. As for the rest, the book's world-building is layered, its mythology convincing, its depiction of poverty well-informed, and its frank inclusion of sexuality refreshing (while never nearing inappropriate).

Very happy this was recommended to me.

I started reading this book yesterday and I barely put it down before I finished at 2am this morning. (I did have to pause to watch Outlander.) I loved this book! Fascinating world-building (I wish I had my own "Gray"), and I loved the characters, especially Kai. (And the love interests were yummy.) When I brushed the last tear from my eye and finally set down my kindle in the middle of the night, my first thought was "Drek! Now I have to wait for the sequel."

HASH(0x93f28e10) von 5 Sternen I love things that have to do with Time 6. August 2014
Von Jen S - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
First off I have an obsession with time. I even love the word Kronos, so when I see a book about someone with awesome time bending abilities. I’m totally sold. Gates of Thread and Stone was right up my alley and I love the way Lori M. Lee represented time as in threads and a river. I thought it was a really cool visual that was created in my head.

As far as world building is concerned, this is actually only small little piece of the planet but it felt so vast, when Lori was explaining the White Court, the Districts, The Void and the Outlands. I could vividly see it all come together in my head. Especially the Labyrinth for some reason. I thought the idea of it was pretty interesting.. There is also a map provided which I like because it gives me the outline then the author fills in the color.

I like books that have a journey aspect to them. Kai and Avan set off on their mission to find Reev and I liked their travels of first finding their way into the outlands, then setting off through it. Little hidden mysteries that are along the way that stuck in my brain and when other things were revealed at the end those pieces fell into place. The author doesn’t blatantly point it out to you, you just think back and go ahhhh I see now why that happened. Of course. Which I like. You can lead me to the water but I don’t always need to be told to drink.

Kai is interesting character and I think there is something important about the way she develops. It really ties in to the end of the book. Kai is flawed and I think the way she is most is her emotions and attachments. When she cares about someone she is fierce in her loyalty and dedication. Even to the point of blindness. She is the kind of person that would rather have a few very close friends then be surrounded by a million acquaintances. As far as her relationship with Avan, I don’t think she didn’t necessarily see it, she was really focused on other things. It was almost like she didn’t want to allow herself to have it.

I really loved Avan. He was just amazing all around and super easy to crush on. I also liked his views on love and sexuality. He is just so down to Earth and awesome.

I loved the Infinite and the idea behind them. I liked how it seemed to be mixing our world with one with tangible magic. However as great as the world building was, I didn’t think this aspect of the book was flushed out enough. Sometimes I was a little confused by how it all came together. The biggies maybe like Death or even Kronos but I kind of wanted to know how many there are and their task. Maybe that was explained and I just didn’t get it.

I also wasn’t sure how I felt about the Tournament. I was actually expecting there to be more to it being that there was a good part dedicated to training for it.

Overall though I really enjoyed the book. It has an awesome cover of course. I kept picturing the threads of time that way. A couple things bothered me slightly but I don’t think it ruined the book for me. I will continue on to the second one being that I’m really curious what it’s about. I’m hoping that it go into a little more detail of the mythology.

HASH(0x93f28fa8) von 5 Sternen Felt Incomplete in Several Places 8. Februar 2015
Von Alicia @ A Kernel of Nonsense - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
**I received a copy of this book through NetGalley**

Kai lives in the East Quarter of Ninurta, known for its meandering streets and poor population. Kai’s brother, Reev, is the only family she’s ever known, having found her abandoned by a river when she was young. Kai has no clues to her past, only a strange ability to slow time, an ability her brother has warned her about using. When Reev suddenly disappears, Kai fears the worst. Ninurtans have been disappearing for years and there are whispers that the mysterious Black Rider is responsible. Determined to find her brother, Kai sets off beyond the city, into the Outlands, with her friend Avan, to seek out the enigmatic Black Rider.

Lori M. Lee’s Gates of Thread and Stone was not as enjoyable as I’d hoped. As far as characterization goes, Kai had a number of flaws as well as strengths, which is just how I like my protagonists. Her love for her brother drove her forward, but I never understood whether her naivety was on purpose or not. She sets off on her own with the intention of finding her brother with no actual plan in place besides confronting an unsavory character. Without her friend Avan and the help of a nameless woman, I don’t think she would have known what to do. She also tended to idolized her brother Reev and her friend Avan. Reev is Kai’s safe place, a self-sacrificing hero in her eyes. Avan is protective of Kai, willing to do anything to help her, and she predictably spends an awful lot of time dwelling on how attractive he is. Unfortunately for both of these characters, Kai’s blind adoration never allowed either to be more than one-dimensional, even with their colorful pasts.

For a story that boasts of a protagonist who can manipulate time, there isn’t much manipulation. Kai’s powers are never really explored and this is really unfortunate as I found this part of the book to be the most interesting. Much of the story’s lore was confusing and because the protagonist herself was ignorant, many of the story’s revelations lacked the proper build-up. While I was reading Gates of Thread and Stone, it occurred to me that the book was never going to earn more than two stars from me and unfortunately, the more I read, the more flaws I began to notice. The anti-climatic ending was patched up hastily and key characters just materialize out of nowhere.
