Soooo not what I was expecting. In a good way! ( )

3.5 Stars

First off, the cover is gorgeous and the main reason I chose to read Gates of Thread and Stone. Kai is some girl living in the bad part of a city with a secret, she can hold and adjust the threads of time. While she and her brother just want to get on with their lives, it's clear that will become impossible (otherwise, no one would write a book about it).

This book actually worked quite well for me. I've been reading a number of Dystopians lately, and many disappointed me in several ways, but I enjoyed this one. There is a lot going on, especially in the beginning, but I liked Kai's story and that made it okay. I was not such a big fan of the romance that was weaved through the story, but since it was still an enjoyable read, it didn't bother me too much. I'm curious to see where the story is going from here.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review! ( )

Another book with a gorgeous cover that fails to deliver with the words inside. GATES OF THREAD AND STONE is entirely unmemorable and slow-moving. Recommended only for die-hard fantasy fans only. ( )

Diese und weitere Rezensionen findet ihr auf meinem Blog Anima Libri - Buchseele

Liest man sich die Inhaltsangabe zu „Die Fäden der Zeit“ von Lori M. Lee durch, bekommt man den Eindruck – oder zumindest habe ich den Eindruck bekommen -, dass einen ein actionreiches Fantasyabenteuer erwartet, voller Magie, getrieben von Geschwisterliebe und mit dunklen Geheimnissen gespickt. Tja… Ich bin mir sicher, all das steckte auch irgendwo in dieser Geschichte, die ich gelesen habe, nur war es halt wirklich sehr, sehr tief versteckt.

Denn die Geschichte ist vor allem eins: Langsam. Ja, „Die Fäden der Zeit“ ist der Auftakt zu einer Serie, zu – oh Wunder – einer Trilogie und Hauptelement der Handlung ist eine Suche, die sind nun einmal von Natur aus nicht unbedingt schnellgängig, aber leider ist Lori M. Lees Roman so langsam, dass er langweilig wird und das sogar relativ schnell. Das liegt auch daran, dass sich die Ereignisse in einer Art Dauerschleife befinden, denn Protagonistin Kai trifft massenweise Charaktere, immer und immer wieder, nur um diese nur Seiten später wieder zu verwerfen.

Leider konnte mich auch der Weltaufbau nicht überzeugen, denn für meinen Geschmack gab es hier eindeutig zu viele Lücken, zu viel das – wie in der Handlung selbst – relativ lieblos zusammen gepflückt zu sein scheint, vieles das erstmal keinen rechten Sinn ergeben will und bis sich schließlich ein Gesamtbild offenbart, ist man doch leider schon so gelangweilt, dass es einem relativ egal ist. Es gibt einfach nichts – keinen Ort, keine Figur -, das als Anker dient, zumindest wenn man die Protagonistin und ihren besten Freund/Schwarm nicht als solchen sehen kann, wie es bei mir der Fall war.

Alles in allem hat „Die Fäden der Zeit“ von Lori M. Lee definitiv Potential, richtig viel sogar, aber so wie man quasi nichts von der eigentlich so beeindruckenden Fähigkeit der Protagonistin zu sehen bekommt, so bleibt auch das restliche Potential der Geschichte weitestgehend ungenutzt. Zum Ende hin zeigt die Autorin allerdings doch noch, was in dieser Geschichte steckt und das macht mich, trotz des ansonsten eher enttäuschenden Leseerlebnis, dann doch auch wieder neugierig auf die Fortsetzung.

This review is going to be tough because I finished the book right before going on a 3 week vacation, and now I don't remember it enough to give it a thorough review. I remember that I liked it but didn't love it. I remember that the main character used the word drek as a cuss word, so there were not many of our cuss words. I remember that the romance was sweet but took a back seat to the main character finding her brother (although there were times when the main character was in the middle of intense things and her thoughts would wander to her companion's good looks..... really?).

I also remember that there were a lot of times where I was a little clueless as to what was really going on. I think the world building was pretty good, but there were some things that I had a really hard time picturing. I thought the main character's "power" was kind of cool, but was a litte confused as to why she didn't use it more to help herself.

Do I think middle schooler's will like it? If they stick with it I think they will, but it is slow in some places and some things are hard to understand and visualize. However, there are a lot of superior books available in this genre. ( )
