5 of 5 stars

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

Just like my experience with Through Fire & Sea, Amid Wind & Stone was a well-written YA Fantasy that kept me reading late into the night and wanting to pick up where I left off immediately upon waking. It is an ambitious series that details the goings on in four different mirror worlds (Fire, Water, Air, and Stone) and one True World with parallel characters and stories that, nevertheless, offers surprises to readers even if they are already familiar with the world.

I just couldn't care for this book in the same way I couldn't care for the first one, even though I have to say this one was a bit better, but not enough to keep me hooked or interested on the characters.
After the great battle against the fire dragon that resulted to be the alternate form of Gideon, the boy Leah loves, controlled by Qeturah; we find Leah trying to keep the rest of Gideon's other forms alive. So in this book we follow the adventures of the stone world (with gargoyles -Gideon elem

"I think that the only thing that makes war inevitable is both sides’ belief that peace is impossible.” - Audrey

Why have I not discovered this series before? The dual storylines of Dorotea and Audrey kept me reading...up to 2am. A highly imaginative and clever take on paranormal romance filled with non-stop action, character struggles and adventure. The story runs through two parallel time lines/alternate universes of Audrey and Dorotea who are each other's "Otherselves" in their mirror worlds.

STEAMPUNK and GARGOYLES and WORLD MIRRORS, OH MY!

No, but in all seriousness, this book was a stunning read. Being my first foray into a NetGalley blind pick read (meaning that I chose it based off of description and cover alone), it turned out to be a pretty AWESOME choice. One caveat though, I did not realize when I picked it that it was the second book in a series and so I have not yet read the first in the Otherselves series. That being said, I didn't feel AT ALL like I had missed out on valu

description
The second novel in the Otherselves series, Amid Wind and Stone introduces two new universes and worlds to the series. The steam punk world of Wind and the post apocalyptic world of Stone are each unique and interesting to read about. In these new worlds Audrey and Dorotea are faced with the challenges of saving their worlds from an evil sorceress that wants to kill their soulmates and shatter their universes.
I loved this novel. It's rich and deep characters were perfectly complimented by the

Thanks to NetGalley and Entangled Publishing for the opportunity to read and review Amid Wind & Stone by Nicole Luiken. This is book two of the Otherselves series, which brings two more worlds into the story along with all of the characters, relationships and politics of each world- air and stone, on top of the same information from the fire and water worlds. The author's creative imagination is astounding because of the complexity of each wor

Actual rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Characters:
Dorotea didn't initially impress me, making choices that seemed really stupid, but she grew on me, primarily because she accepted her mistakes. Audrey was more fun and my new favourite. The romance in this instalment felt better crafted and I loved how the Otherselves of Gideon also have different personalities, same as Leah. The supporting cast on the Air World were great, but those of the Stone World were a little underwhelming to me.

The sequel to Through Fire and Sea, Amis Wind and Stone introduced two new worlds that kept me wanting to read more. I was reading into the night and loving every minute of this book. Throughout this book, I felt the transitions between all of the mirror worlds was much more clear than in the first book.

In the sequel, we are introduced to two more of Leah's other selves, Aud

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.

This is the second novel in the enthralling “Otherselves” series. The series concerns five versions of worlds, one is the True World and the other four are Fire, Water, Air and Stone. On each world there are some special people who are mirrored on the alternative worlds. The first novel concerned the Fire and Water Worlds and was entitled ‘Through Fire and Sea’. I read and thoroughly enjoyed that so was very happy to discover this, its sequel. This time the focus is on Air and Rock, though mirro ...more

(I received a free copy of this book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.)

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.

Gah, this series is so frustrating. The concept is brilliant but it gets lost in the presentation.

Having saved Water, Leah turns to both Air and Stone to stop Qeturah from shattering their worlds. We also meet two more of Leah's otherselves and each of their soulmates. I don't know. It just seemed more of the same of the first. Leah travels to another mirror world, Leah falls in love with one of her otherselves soulmates, Leah contemplates whether she wants to go back to Fire. I get it, Leah is

I really enjoyed learning more about the Air and Stone worlds. Each has their own particular weaknesses and strengths. And each Otherself is the same in so many ways, but also shaped by their unique environment into a unique person. The battle to save the Mirror Worlds is heating up, with Qeturah trying to sabotage the worlds for her own gain.

Air and Stone world really stood out to me. The fun steam-punk feeling of air with their dirigibles and technology, with the very almost sci-fi/fantasy fee

Guys. guys. GUYS. I’ve discovered that I’m more than just a contemporary girl. After reading Through Fire & Sea and Amid Wind & Stone by Nicole Luiken, I now consider myself a fantasy reader, too (as long as it has some romance in it because a leopard can’t completely change its spots)!

This is the second book in the Otherselves series and I received this novel in exchange for an honest review.

In the first book, Leah lost her soul mate Gideon and fought together with her otherself Holly to protect Gideon’s otherself from the same fate. They managed to save Ryan on water world and now the time has come to the two other mirror worlds, air and stone.

Here we are introduced to Dorotea from Stone and Audrey from Air. War is coming to Audrey’s city and an angry Goddess in threatenin

"Amid Wind & Stone" is a marvelous continuation of the Otherselves series. In this one, we flip between the air and stone mirror worlds. Leah still interjects at parts (I wouldn't have minded dropping her from the story), but she does help her otherselves to learn about the truth and Qeturah to protect their worlds. Holly also has a minor role in this story and we hear the barest amount about the true world self, Belinda.

Audrey is in the air mirror world, which exists in a time that women are un

I found this story to be very different than anything I have read before, but very enjoyable! I did not have the chance to read the first book in the series, but now I want to go back and read it to catch up a little. I was not lost starting the series with book 2 but I think that I would have had a better understanding of who and where some of the characters that appear in this story come from if I had read the first book.

Nicole Luiken does an awesome job of creating these separate worlds that

This sort of picked up where the first book left off, with Leah seeking revenge for Gideon's murder and wanting to stop Qeturah from destroying the other worlds.

This time around it's the last 2 worlds of Stone and Air (obsidian and glass). It was interesting to read it in the point of views of Dorotea (Stone) and Audrey (Air) because their worlds were unique as Fire and Water were.

In Stone World, it read more like a post-apocalyptic dystopian book, one where some event happened that caused the

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 qu ...more

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.
