Through Fire & Sea
Release Date: 05/05/15
Entangled Teen

Summary from Goodreads:
Mirror mirror, hear my call…

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 that either bless a civilization or destroy it. But then Leah discovers she's a Caller, gifted with the unique—and dangerous—ability to “call” her Otherselves in mirror worlds. And her father will do anything to use her powers for his own purposes.

In the Water world, Holly nearly drowns when she sees—and interacts with—Leah, a mirror image of herself. She’s rescued by Ryan, a boy from school with a secret he’d die to protect. Little do they know, his Otherself is the son of a powerful volcano god at war in the Fire world…and he’s about to fall.

As Leah and Holly's lives intersect, the Fire and Water worlds descend into darkness. The only way to protect the mirror worlds is to break every rule they've ever known. If they don’t, the evil seeping through the mirrors will destroy everything—and everyone—they love…

My Review
It 's a thrilling fantasy novel with a plot  unique, original and intriguing and likeable characters.
The author is very good at mixing fantasy world with the real world. In this story there are four different worlds and the history of their creation is very beautiful and mythological. Our world is Water, the God who dominates it is Ocean and this is where Holly lives. Then there is  Fire world where Leah belongs and is dominated by the God Vulcan. The different worlds communicate through  mirrors and Holly and Leah discover to be a mirror image of the other and to save their worlds the girls will have to learn to work together and trust no one.
It is very exciting the alternating the point of view of Holly and Leah to tell the story: you switch from one to another constantly and without notice,  therefore attention when reading is at most not to lose the thread.
At the beginning are provided a lot of information to put together and can be a bit tricky empathize with the characters and this complex reality, but after a few chapters, the reading is really addictive and difficult to leave it before the end. The only weak point for me is the little romanticism, there are two beautiful love stories but not "butterflies in the stomach".
It 's the first book in a new series and I can't wait to read the second book of this adventure, there are still two worlds to visit and discover.
I recommend it to anyone who wants to read a fantasy different.

I received the eBook free as a review copy from the publisher Entangled Teen via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review
