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.
The Otherselves series is best enjoyed in order.
Book one: Through Fire & Sea
Book two: Amid Wind & Stone
Book three: In Truth & Ashes
"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." - Young Adult Book Madness

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 d... ...more

Actual rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars
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... ...more

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 D... ...more

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,... ...more
"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... ...more
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 ha... ...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 o... ...more
