THE INFINITE Book summary:

The 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.


4 Out of 5 Stars
Fallon's Review:

Kai finds that not everything is great after the aftermath of getting everything she thought she wanted. Reev and her have grown distant, Avan is not the boy she remembers, and she is living in a city she is unaccustomed to. Avan can not remember the past and is not sure he wants to. Kai can not blame him because when she was faced with that decision she choose the same. However, Kai can not live with him not knowing the things that mattered to them both.

Soon an outsider shows up in the city and they learn there is another city and even bigger predators then the Gargoyles they have feared. Chimera's are killing their people and trying to take over their lands. They have come to seek help. Kai soon finds herself excited to head off on a new adventure and find purpose. She has become the Kahl's liason.



The Infinite was a new adventure full of vivid a vivid new world to discover. I wanted to like Avan a little more even though his distance was understandable. He was just my favorite character in the first book. However Lori has an impeccable imagination and her writing draws you in and takes you along for the journey. I can not wait to read book 3. This is such a stunning book that is a must read. I am giving The Infinite 4 Out of 5 Stars.

Gates of Thread and Stone (Gates of Thread and Stone #1) by 


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.

Fallon's Review:

Kai is a messenger who lives in the Labyrinth of the city. This is the poor side of town where people do whatever it takes to get by. Reev her brother has always tried to protect Kai from that fact. Kai has the ability to bend time but has to hide that fact from everyone.


Kai and Reev have a system down to lt each other know they are alright. They carve there initial into a post each day that they pass until one day Reev does not come home and Kai goes looking for him and notices he never carved his initials. Out to find out what happened to her brother, Kai learns he has been taken and needs to venture outside the wall to find the Black Rider who comes and takes people fromt he city that are never seen again.


Avan is Kai's friend who refuses to let her make this journey on her own. Avan is equipped with a Gray a mechanical animal to out run the creatures that hunt outside the wall. They soon take off and find some rumors to be true and many to be false. Will Kai ever find her brother? She will soon discover that sacrifices will have to be made.




Gates of Thread and Stone was a beautifully complex world that captivated me. The world Lori built was inspired and fresh. Things happen to Kai on this journey that open her eyes and her self discovery was endearing. Avan for me was the character that enchanted me. I loved every second of this book and would read it over and over again. I am giving this book 5 out of 5 stars. This is a must read!

Praise for Gates of Thread and Stone:


“Lori M. Lee excels in building a world of intrigue, oppression, and magic amidst a Labyrinth setting as twisted and winding as the secrets hidden inside her characters’ hearts. Fans of strong heroines who don’t need a boy to hold their hands, action-packed fighting scenes, and whispers of steampunk and mythology, will find themselves wishing they, too, could manipulate the threads of time, if only to stay inside the story a little longer.”
A.G. Howard, New York Times bestselling author of the SPLINTERED series

“A fast-paced, heart-wrenching whirl of a story full of magic, immortals, and a romance that will leave readers gasping for more. I adored the tough, scrappy narrator and fell in love with the boy chasing after her heart. Lori M. Lee introduces us to a fantasy world unlike any other and gives us the first taste of an epic love story in the making. I can’t wait for more!”
Mindee Arnett, THE NIGHTMARE AFFAIR series and AVALON series

“Inventive, romantic, and gripping. I was hooked from the first page!”
Amy Tintera, REBOOT and REBEL

“A thrilling adventure in a vivid world, GATES OF THREAD AND STONE is the kind of book you want to read both fast and slow: fast to find out what happens next and slow to savor the journey. I couldn’t put it down.”
Sarah Beth Durst

“Lee has woven a captivating fantasy that will thread its way into your heart and pull you into a world of magic and intrigue.”
Christina Farley, GILDED and SILVERN
