Product Description

There is one True World, and then there are the four mirror worlds: fire, water, air, and stone. And each has a magic of its own...

In the Fire World, seventeen-year-old Leah is the illegitimate daughter of one of the realm's most powerful lords. She's hot-blooded - able to communicate with the tempestuous volcano gods. But she has another gift...the ability to Call her twin "Otherselves" on other worlds.

Holly resides in the Water World - our world. When she's called by Leah from the Fire World, she nearly drowns. Suddenly the world Holly thought she knew is filled with secrets, magic...and deadly peril.

For a malevolent force seeks to destroy the mirror worlds. And as Leah and Holly are swept up in the tides of chaos and danger, they have only one choice to save the mirror worlds - to shatter every rule they've ever known...

HASH(0xa3ff7798) out of 5 stars Really enjoyed this! May 11 2015

Thanks to Entangled Teen for the eARC!

Last year, I read Trial by Fire by Josephine Angelini, the first book I've read about parallel worlds and other-selves. Because I really enjoyed Trial by Fire, I was approached to review Through Fire & Sea. These books definitely had a similar vibe, with other-selves in other-worlds, but they were also very different, and I'm happy to say that I thoroughly enjoyed Through Fire & Sea!

The beginning of Through Fire & Sea throws a lot at the reader right away - there's a lot of otherworldly jargon very quick in the beginning - but once I figured out what was going on, I found it a lot easier to get into the story. In the story, the land where Leah is from is being attacked by a dragon. As a way to get rid of the dragon, the duke sends Leah, his illegitimate daughter, with Qeturah, a sorceress who can send the dragon away. Qeturah teaches Leah that she can call her otherselves from mirror worlds, and from there, Leah and her otherself Holly's lives become intertwined.

One thing I was at first skeptical about but ended up really loving about Through Fire & Sea was the way it combined a totally fantastical world with the world we know and live in. The way Nicole Luiken wove the two worlds together was both fascinating and extremely well executed. It was really cool to see the juxtaposition between the two worlds and their characters.

Similarly to how the two very different worlds mixed together well, I really enjoyed how each character had a double in the other world and seeing how they could act similarly or completely differently. Like I said earlier in the review, even though this aspect was really similar to Trial by Fire, the execution was absolutely different and just as enjoyable. Another great thing about the two different characters was seeing how Leah, who lived in a world that felt like it was from long ago, reacted to Holly's modern world. Both Leah and Holly were strong and independent in their own ways, but it always felt like they were two separate and very different people.

The entire concept behind Through Fire & Sea was so interesting and I really enjoyed the journey. I'm so excited to see where Nicole Luiken goes with the rest of the mirror worlds in the Otherselves series. Book two will not come soon enough! I highly recommend this for fans of fantasy, parallel worlds, and Trial by Fire!

HASH(0xa47f12a0) out of 5 stars This was so much more fun than I expected it to be May 6 2015

I received this ARC from Entangled Teen in exchange for an honest review.

This was so much more fun than I expected it to be! I'm going to try to describe things without using any spoilers!

In this book, there is the True World, and 4 other worlds. The two worlds present here are Fire, which is ruled by volcanoes, and Water, which is our world. Everyone has an otherself in each world. But most people aren't aware of that. It requires magic and mirrors, and knowledge of the other worlds, of course.

This story has 2 perspectives, Leah from Fire world and Holly from the Water world. (The back and forth could have been annoying, but I really enjoyed it.) Through a series of events, Leah becomes aware of the other worlds, and learns that she is a Caller, someone who can communicate with the other worlds. But there is someone trying to use Leah's gift for her own evil deeds.
In these two worlds, we also have the 2 love interests. They are SPECIAL. And totally lovable. But someone is trying to kill them and destroy the worlds they live in, and the girls must learn to communicate and work together to save the ones they love and the place they call home.

Even though they were the same person, they were completely different kinds of people. The author was able to create heroines that I actually really like, and the boys too. I especially loved Holly and Ryan, but felt so much for Leah also. The world that Luiken created was so interesting. The system for using the mirrors and accessing the world was interesting and fun. I absolutely LOVED the fantasy elements used in the book. Everything moved at a great pace, and the end was really exciting.

I knew going into this that it would be a series, as everything is now. I didn't know whether to expect a huge cliffhanger or not. But I was so pleased with how it ended. It wrapped up a lot of things, while still leaving an opening for the next book. I mean, there are still 3 worlds that we haven't even been to yet! While I know that Leah will be a large part of the next book, I hope that we still get some Holly and Ryan time.

I will definitely be looking out for the sequel! Thanks, Entangled!!

**EDIT: I forgot to mention, this book needs some serious editing. But I accepted that as a flaw of an ARC. Hopefully its fixed before it releases!!**

HASH(0xa3ffa45c) out of 5 stars Inventive and exciting! May 5 2015
By The Tale Temptress - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I just finished reading this book last night, so it's fresh on my mind. This was unlike almost anything else I've read in a long time, because it was so very unique. Notice I had a little bit of trouble classifying the genre at the top of the post. It is definitely young adult, but part of the story takes place in a fantastical world, while part of it takes place in the real world, and/or the present day/time/place.

I don't really want to tell you anything more than that because you really just need to experience this one for yourself. I'm afraid I would ruin it for readers if I went into explaining the concepts of the mirrors and the Otherselves too much more than what the summary has already done. So let's talk characters.

I loved these characters. They were so well-crafted. Even though Holly/Leah and Ryan/His Otherself, are mirror images of each other from Fire and Water worlds, they are each completely unique. These are not carbon copies when it comes to personality. I love how the author was able to make them so different while they looked and sounded so similar, and even shared some traits. Leah was smart, strong, and brave, while Holly was smart, world-savvy, but a little more shy. Ryan is sweet, but determined and self-sacrificing, while his otherself is dark, brooding, but nevertheless brave and honorable.

I don't read a lot of fantasy-type stories... so typically, the very things about this book that made it so "different" and "fantasy-like", might not have captured me quite so much if not for the characters. The characters made me care about them. They are what pulled me in and made me want to know what was going on, and to really invest myself into these differing worlds.

The author did an amazing job in her world-building, in crafting such a unique setting and story concept. This story seemed to have it all. There is a fantasy world, magic, divergent settings, romances to die for, and an amazing villain. The writing was simple when it needed to be, poignant at other times, and tight and fast at others. It sucked me in so quickly and kept my attention riveted. The pacing was spot on, and before I knew it, I looked up and I was done with the book. I will definitely be looking for the second installment in this series. This was an amazing, spellbinding start that swept me away completely.

2.5/5 Stars

I wanted to love this book so much. It had such a unique plot. It was intense, complicated, extremely interesting, and fast-paced. Unfortunately, it failed in its execution. There were so many fantastical details that I was in awe of as I was reading but the writing didn't evoke the right emotions out of me to be hooked. The book is so fast-paced that it seems like the authors uses this as her reason as to why the relationships and characters are under-developed but it didn't work. The one thing that will always knock a book down a couple stars for me is instalove, and unfortunately, this book has a lot of it. I definitely didn't hate it and the ending piqued my interest about the sequel. I guess we'll see what the future holds.

HASH(0xa410678c) out of 5 stars A YA fantasy I can get behind! March 9 2016
By Bridget OToole - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Through Fire & Sea primarily focuses on Leah, an inhabitant of Fire world and a magical Caller. But Holly, Leah’s otherself and an inhabitant of Water world, also becomes a major part of this story. The idea of a Leah and a Holly–the idea of mirror worlds and otherselves–is an idea that I find very intriguing. Especially because Water world is described to be much the same as earth, and the idea that earth, the planet we live on, is simply a mirror world is quite mind-blowing. Nicole Luiken did a fabulous job in creating two distinctively different worlds–worlds that appear to not only represent different elements, but also different eras. Leah’s father is a duke where Holly’s father is a famous Hollywood director. I think that the combination of fantasy and contemporary is why I liked Through Fire & Sea so much. The fact that two completely contrasting heroines are working together to defeat a common enemy–Qeturah–is great.

Qeturah is an extremely horrid individual and the perfect enemy for Leah and Holly to take on. She’s power hungry and uses her magical ability as a Caller to disrupt and disturb the mirror worlds in an effort to destroy them so that the True world–the world that the mirror worlds are mere reflections of–is the only world left standing. You see, Qeturah was exiled from the True world, and her exile was the biggest instigator in terms of her wanting to shatter the mirror worlds. No matter that to do so she has to kill her innocent otherselves and their sons. She’s truly wicked and doesn’t hesitate to reek havoc.

Anyways, enough about Qeturah for now. I must discuss Leah and Gideon and Holly and Ryan. The idea behind these two pairings is that Leah and Gideon are soulmates, which in turn means that Leah’s otherselves and Gideon’s otherselves are soulmates, too. So, the rules of these worlds are very clear. In this book, I favored Gideon and Leah over Ryan and Holly because I felt so in tune with the characters feelings, which means that when Holly was mad at Ryan, I was mad at Ryan. I could empathize with her insecurity over Ryan’s career choice as a hot shot actor. Because of the whole “soulmate” factor, fate, destiny–all that jazz–I could forgive how fast these couples came to be in love. Also, Gideon and Ryan aren’t entirely human and their uniqueness and the situation surrounding it contribute to the whole insta-love thing because trust in another wasn’t something they had before.

I realize I’m being super vague while also being wordy, but I don’t want to give any of the surprises away! Like the somewhat cliffhanger ending of Through Fire & Sea. I definitely don’t want to give that away, but just know, that last sentence made me crazy–but in an excited way.

Review originally posted at Bridget's Book Bungalow and written in conjunction with a review of the second book in the series, Amid Wind & Stone.
