[Book Blitz] Excerpt & Giveaway: The Infinite (Gates of Thread and Stone #2) by Lori M. Lee


Date: 03/10/15

from Goodreads:
walls of Ninurta keep its citizens safe.

Kai always believed the only danger to the city came from within. Now, with a
rebel force threatening the fragile government, the walls have become more of a
prison than ever.

To make matters worse, as Avan explores his new identity as an Infinite, Kai
struggles to remind him what it means to be human. And she fears her brother,
Reev, is involved with the rebels. With the two people she cares about most on
opposite sides of a brewing war, Kai will do whatever it takes to bring peace.
But she’s lost her power to manipulate the threads of time, and she learns that
a civil war might be the beginning of something far worse that will crumble not
only Ninurta’s walls but also the entire city.

In this thrilling sequel to Gates of Thread and Stone, Kai must
decide how much of her humanity she’s willing to lose to protect the only
family she’s ever known. 

Before all of this, I used to enjoy studying the way the threads of time connected everything. There had been wonder in pressing my hand against the continuous flow and watching the world catch and slow around me. Meeting the Infinite had changed everything, and I would sooner give up my powers than join them.

The thing is, I may have gotten my wish. I hadn’t touched the threads since Ninu died. In the months afterward, I’d ignored the shimmery fibers, denying their existence—until one day, they began to fade and disappear.

I could no longer see, much less manipulate, the threads of time.
