Product Description

Behind the mirror lies your otherself...

There is one True World, and then there are the four Mirror Worlds: Fire, Water, Air, and Stone.

Audrey and Dorotea are “ otherselves”—twin copies of each other who live on different Mirror Worlds.

On Air, Audrey has the ability to communicate with wind spirits. As war looms, she’s torn between loyalty to her country and her feelings for a roguish phantom who may be a dangerous spy.

Blackouts and earthquakes threaten the few remaining humans on Stone, who have been forced to live underground. To save her injured sister, Dorotea breaks taboo and releases an imprisoned gargoyle. Brooding, sensitive Jasper makes her wonder if gargoyles are truly traitors, as she’s always been told.

Unbeknownst to them, they both face the same enemy—an evil sorceress bent on shattering all the Mirror Worlds.

By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

I am a great fan of fantasy and I know that this book was just really made for me! It was definitely a fun fantasy ride! No doubt Amid Wind and Stone deserves a solid 5 stars.

Amid Wind and Stone is the book two of the Otherselves series by Nicole Lukein. Yes BOOK TWO, and I haven’t read the book one yet. It is so annoying reading the book two without reading the book one yet but the good thing here is, this book is a stand alone. The beginning of the book may just leave some questions inside your head but the ending will definitely not leave you hanging.

It is written on third person’s POV.

Dorotea from the Stone World did a terrible mistake that caused danger not only to her life but also to her whole entire world for the sake of saving her little step sister’s life who is in a state of coma. Dorotea is a loving and caring step sister and daughter. She is willing to do and gamble everything just for the sake of her family specially her little step sister Marta. But despite of that, Dorotea has the tendency to be cruel and merciless.

Audrey from the Air World accidentally ruined his brother’s life just because she wanted to help and have a little fun or escapade. Audrey is expected to be prim and proper. But Audrey is boyish and a great craver of adventure which is not quite suitable for a young lady like her especially that her father, The Admiral, strongly disapproves it. Audrey is strong and brave like a man.

The book two of Otherselves series is more focused on the Wind and Air World still with Leah on the Fire and Holly on the Water.
The characters of this book has a strong voice. The changing of worlds and the differentiation of the four main characters are so good. They can be perfectly and easily distinguished from each other. Each is unique and flawlessly written and separated from each other.

”I don’t want money or baubles.” His voice dropped. “I want another kiss.”
”A kiss?” she squeaked.
“Yes. A kiss from you is worth more than a few measly old diamonds.”

I really love the romance in this book. It always makes my heart beats faster. It is just mild and perfect for the young adults. Surely every girl out there will dream of having such a love story like theirs.

Dorotea and Red Jasper, Audrey and The Phantom, both pairs has a unique way of making and telling their own true love stories.

And the way Nicole Lukein created the new worlds was splendid. The building of worlds are so intense. It will really drag you into it. And honestly speaking, I haven’t seen any other fictional worlds yet that is well built and established just like Nicole Lukein did. There is nothing wrong I can see. All I can see is pure perfection and a whole completely different world . It is as if I was being transported into some new, completely strange place.

”All right,” she said faintly. Was this really happening?”

Ugh. WAS THIS REALLY HAPPENING? I really don’t know what to say about how this book has ended. It was so unfair. I love it and hate it at the same time. I love it and I’m happy for both Stone and Air World.

But what about Leah in the Fire World? WHY? Why did Leah have to be there? To be left alone? Sure, the Mirror Worlds are safe. But still..

”Nevertheless, she wrapped herself in a blanket and sat on the bed. She felt closer to Gideon here.”

Why did Leah have to be there alone, longing for his dead soul mate?

Everybody is happy, I know Leah also feels the same way. But deep inside, I also know that she’s not. Being left alone in a dead and burning world will never ever make you truly happy, right?

Everything that happened just made me crave for book three even more.

There is nothing that I hated or disliked about this book but except for one. Dorotea. She is so annoying. Yes, Dorotea loves her family so much and she is so loving and caring but she is also so impulsive. And I really hate the part where she ordered a gargoyle to die which happened to be her only formidable ally at that time. Sometimes, she forgets how to use her brain first. Or sometimes she’s just using her brain without even considering her heart.

I love reading this book and I really didn’t wish for it to have an end. I just couldn’t say anything bad and wrong about this book. There is nothing I could say. This book literally made me gasping for air like for so many times. I’m so happy that it still had another one.

I really hate reading the first book for the first time after reading the middle book/s in the series but I badly need to read Through Fire and Sea!

This book is just perfect for fantasy readers like me.
HASH(0x9b8027a0) out of 5 stars Amid Wind and Stone is a brilliant continuation of the Otherselves series. March 13 2016
By YA Book Madness Blog - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
***I received this book as a gift in exchange for an honest review

READ THIS BOOK IF:

You like strong female protagonists.
You’re into world building.
Books that span genres excite you.

Amid Wind and Stone is a brilliant continuation of the Otherselves series. At first, I was a little hesitant to dive in because I loved the first two girls in Through Fire and Sea so much but OMG was I surprised. The romance feels as fresh as the quirky storyline and creative as the characters.

PROS:

Audrey. Man that little minx. I love her to pieces. She’s ballsy and a total feminist. She loathes the female expectations and pressures of her upper-class life. Think Victorian/Steampunk. If you’re a Jane Austen fan, forget about it, this girl is PERFECT for you. Audrey is brave, fierce; she doesn’t let anything get in the way of her passions and dreams. She gets in trouble, sneaks around, takes risks, and does what so many are scared to, she lives, fully and vibrantly. She jumps through the air and rides the wind, she dresses up as boys to join the military, I mean, seriously, what is not to love about her? On top of that, she is cheeky, funny, and full of heart.

Phantom. Playful, flirty, forward, and oh-so-swoon-worthy. He’s an invisible knight in shining armor with questionable behavior and secrets. There’s something about him that’s dangerous and thrilling that will make you fall hard. The vulnerable side…is there anything sexier than a guy who opens up and puts his fears and heart on full display?

Phantom and Audrey. Sweet, teasing, addictive flirtation. I wanted whole books on this relationship.

Dorotea’s story is a little different but provocative, pervasive, and so relevant. Dorotea’s story is about indoctrination, the teachings of our parents, and how prejudice is spread without knowing the full story. Dorotea has powerful beliefs but they’re rooted in lies. This makes her mean sometimes and hardheaded. At first, it’s hard to get behind her, she seems needlessly cruel but once you understand her reasoning, it’s easy to see where that’s coming from. Underneath the prejudice is just a girl who loves beyond everything. She grows on you.

Jasper.Holy hotness. Think Beauty and the Beast. The way he burrows through rock and transforms. Give me more of that. Jasper challenges Dorotea, makes her step outside herself and it’s like a revelation. <3

CONS:

The climax was a bit of a letdown. For so long (if you’ve been eagerly anticipating revenge since book 1 like I have) we’ve waited for the reckoning, the moment when Qeturah would have to answer for her devious behavior and horrendous crimes and when it happens, it was abrupt and unsettling but something…I guess the processing by Leah and the others, wasn’t where it could have been to pack that emotional sucker punch.

The feels weren’t as pronounced as in book 1. I didn’t have the same emotional connection to characters.
HASH(0x9b802bd8) out of 5 stars A magical addition to the series! March 9 2016
By Bridget OToole - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Amid Wind & Stone is just as well-written as Through Fire & Sea. The world building continues to be stellar, and the rules continue to be followed. The Wind and Stone worlds really came to life for me–even more so than the Fire and Water worlds. I felt more strongly for Dorotea and Audrey than I did for Leah and Holly in the first book because the stakes are much higher in Amid Wind & Stone. I mean, don’t get me wrong, the stakes are high for Leah and Holly, too–they still haven’t defeated Qeturah, and they can’t let her win. They vow to help their Stone and Wind otherselves protect their soulmates and get rid of Qeturah for good.

Anyways, during the opening scene, I felt every single emotion that Dorotea was feeling because the situation she found herself in (trapped in a cave in the dark–a cave that is only big enough to crawl through) was described in such great detail. I honestly almost had a panic attack because I felt Dorotea’s claustrophobia and fear–the writing was that good. Also, I thoroughly enjoyed my introduction to Audrey and her family–her family was probably my favorite out of the bunch. Audrey and Dorotea were much more hands on–the flying, the walking through stone, it was all very exciting. Their soulmates were more up my alley in terms of personality that Gideon and Ryan were–they were more rough around the edges and Piers was a seriously cute flirt.

I will admit that I started to form an extreme dislike of Leah in the middle of the book–when she took over Dorotea’s body. I could understand why she did that to Holly in the first book. I could understand that in her grief, she confused Ryan to be the same as Gideon, but I could not understand why she let the same thing happen again with Dorotea. She was letting Jasper fall in love with her when she knew that Jasper was Dorotea’s soulmate–not her. I didn’t want that. It felt wrong some how. I mean, luckily Leah came to her senses and Dorotea and Jasper reconciled their differences and let go of their prejudices. Once that happened, they became my favorite couple.

Also, I feel it’s important to point out that Qeturah doesn’t appear in this book as much as one would expect after reading the first one. She’s still the enemy, but the chaos she creates is behind the scenes if that makes sense. What I mean is that, bad things are happening, and it’s known that Qeturah is the reason, but Qeturah’s physical whereabouts are not known for quite some time. And I found the ending of Qeturah quite shocking. It was a good shock, but also a bit anti-climatic. I expected an epic fight to go down between Leah and Qeturah, but that’s not what happened. Although, I suppose that the epic fight is yet to come. After all, Qeturah was just a puppet. Malachi is the true evil in this fight for freedom. And that surprise tease at the end of book one? Not really addressed yet. I suspect–or at least I seriously hope–that we will take a visit to the True world next, and I suspect that it will be truly epic.

Overall, Amid Wind & Stone is a truly thrilling and magical reads. The complexity of the characters and the world building is fantastic. The adventure is exciting, and I would really love to visit these fascinating worlds again. Definitely recommend for YA Fantasy readers.

By Miss Kris - Published on Amazon.com

I posted a review for Book One in this series: Through Fire & Sea; I enjoyed the magic and drama of 'otherselves' in parallel universes. The magic and drama continue in Book Two: Amid Wind & Stone, this time with another set of girls with a mirrored existence and common enemy. While this story is an installment in a series, it is very much its own adventure. All the layered elements that I enjoyed in the first book are present again, and the storytelling showcases an attention to detail and a quickly paced plot.

The worlds in this book are Air (a fun steampunk environment) and Stone (a dark, primitive, oppressive land). It is incredibly entertaining to have such diverse characters like Audrey and Dorotea be mirrored selves. Due to the magical nature of the realms, they interact much like the worlds of Water and Fire did in the first book. The characters from the other worlds also participate in the action of the new story. The author does a great job explaining everything in case a reader missed the first book, but it would certainly enhance the experience if the books were read in order.

Like the first book, mirrored characters overlap and interact as they battle a singular evil power. I actually enjoyed the second book more: gargoyles, airships, ghosts, and an thrilling action make this a truly epic fantasy adventure.

Here is one that is for the fantasy lover in your reading. This first called to me because of the mention of gargoyles because I am always one to read when they are contained within. Once I began it though I realized I had gotten a pot of gold because it held many other favorites of mine all in one. Elements that will also deal with different worlds that are written in a way that held me captivated once I entered in. The two characters that are what takes you back and forth-Audrey and Dorotea will be the captivators. Once you enter into this story you are whisked away through one event after another but I found it to be quite different then anything I had read in awhile. It is also at a pace that you do not want to let go because you need to see what is going to happen next that this author knows how to spin it. I must confess though I do find I like when I am with Dorotea and her boldness. I do get my craving satisfied with how she brings to life a special gargoyle that starts to fill it. There is a enemy though that must be stopped that she will take you along with it. The quality of this story was such that I forgot all the way until I was finished that it is in the genre of teen because it sure kept me entranced.
