About The Infinite
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.
My Rating: 5 stars
The sequel to Gates of Thread and Stone did not disappoint! Kai's story continues in this vividly imagined world. She is struggling to come to terms with the events of book 1. Wracked with guilt and insecurity, she still manages to be an admirable heroine who is brave, loyal, and strong. There are romantic moments in this booth that are both sweet and poignant, but romance does not define who she is. What I like most about Kai is how she can navigate through her darker emotions to hang on to that thread of optimism. She will never give up on those she loves.
I am fascinated by the Infinite, the primeval gods of this broken world. They truly embody the elements they represent, but they display enough humanity to make them interesting and relatable. This also makes it hard to tell the good guys from the bad ones. This is not a world of black and white, but many, many shades of gray.
I assume that there will be another book coming in Kai's story, and I certainly anticipate it. This is a book that will keep you turning the pages and leave you wanting more in the best way possible.
Reading is Power
Before I was an author, I was an avid reader. I absolutely adore books and getting lost in the worlds that other people create. I love to discuss books, too. Feel free to leave comments. :-)
