  • The Water and the Wild is one of my favourite middle grade novels, so I'm really glad K.E. Ormsbee put out a sequel. Eliot becomes a more central character, Lottie is more resourceful than ever, and their adventures never let up on the excitement. :)


  • Noooo! Not a cliffhanger?!!The torture. The agony of waiting for the next book.Yeah, I love it."A red apple tree grows in the heart of Wandlebury Wood. It is a burst of color in a land of silver grass and white-barked yew trees, and out from its trunk step two travelers. The girl takes a small bird from her pocket. The boy takes a deep breath."The Doorway and the Deep picks up pretty much right where The Water and the Wild left off. (view spoiler)[Lottie heals Eliot; they go off to Limn together [...]


  • In “Doorway and the Deep,” K.E. Ormsbee redeems the sins of “The Water and the Wild,” capitalizing on all the promise that lay dormant there. Though her foreshadowing is still a little heavy-handed for my taste, all the other flaws of the first installment are absent, replaced by characters, plot developments, and prose that make for a truly relatable, middle grade page-turner with more than a hint of feminism.Here are a few of my favorite quotes:“You can’t trust anyone, not on the r [...]


  • This review (and others) can be seen in all its properly formatted glory on my blog Beauty and the BookshelfAfter reading and loving The Water and the Wild last year, I was eager to get my hands on the sequel. The Water and the Wild featured a Wonderlandish, Neverlandesque fantasmical world and had a quirky, fun cast of characters I utterly adore, plus some very promising prose. When an ARC fell into my hands (possibly from a magical, portal-like apple tree), I was excited to return to Limn and [...]


  • I love Kathryn, but I hate Kathryn. So much happened in the next book in the series, and it also left me with so many questions. I need answers, I need more. It was a joy to join Lottie on her adventures once again.


  • Loved this sequel so much. Lyrical and magical and imaginative, Ormsbee sucked me back into the world of Limn from the first page. I adore these characters and I was so happy to be back with them and this book only developed them more and cemented them into my heart. And that ending. Hoo boy, that ending.


  • Not a stand alone, still fun and filled with adventure. Surprise twists? There were a few. Interesting characters in unusual locations using magic to avert war. I'm sure you'll enjoy this story, as long as you don't mind cliffhangers


  • It started slowly then picked back up. You really need to read the first book to get backstory and characters, but I remembered as I went along. And Fife! <3!


  • The Doorway and the Deep, sequel to K. E. Ormsbee’s The Water and the Wild, starts off with Lottie and her friends living in Wisp territory, where Lottie is taking lessons to sharpen her ability to heal others. She knows her friend Elliot will need her skills one day, and she wants to be ready.But when the head of the Wisps makes a deal that sends her to the North, she once again sets out on a journey with her friends. There are dangers to be sure, and Lottie goes against her will, yet she’s [...]


  • Since Lottie's return from New Albion, Eliot has had the best prognosis. Eliot's father has sold his business and moved. Their previous adventures lead Lottie into the discovery about her talent. Yet, now was the time for Lottie to return to New Albion in a quest to "sharpen" her "keen." With the understanding and approval of Eliot's father, they both re-enter the world beyond the apple tree and are created by their friends in Wisp Territory. Knowing what your "keen" is and being trained in its [...]


  • Disclaimer: I won this as an ARC from the publisher and am finally doing the review.The adventure goes deeper and a bit darker as the reader learns more about Sprites and about New Albion and keens and Lottie Fiske and her heritage. I had the hardest time ever forcing myself to stop reading this and come back to real life and do grown-up-y sort of stuff. I really enjoyed reading about the group and how their relationships changed and developed. Oooohhh!The author must believe in torturing reader [...]


  • It had been a while since I had read the first book in this series and it took me a while to remember all of the characters. However, once I got back into the flow of things, this was a satisfying continuation of The Water and the Wild. The beings and places were a solid continuation of Ormbee's skillful worldbuilding. In many way, the journey of a group of assorted characters reminded me of The Hobbit--only for younger children. I only wish this series had more readers. This would be 4 stars fo [...]


  • I am thoroughly enjoying this series. This is the 2nd book. I am very anxious for the next book to be released because I really need to know what happens next. I think she has great characters and I like the world she has built. I'm an adult so I would have to talk to a kid to see what they think but I think kids would like it. It may be scary for a very sensitive kid and you might want to wait until the next book comes out before you read this one.


  • The Doorway and the Deep is about a girl named Lottie and her friends going to the Northerly Court where Rebel Gem lives (she is the ruler of the Northerly Court). Lottie's keen (a keen is basically a superpower inside you) is healing, but Lottie doesn't know she can hurt people to.I would recommend this book to everyone I know especially to people who like magic and action in their books.



  • 4.5 out of 5 stars.The Doorway and the Deep is the second installment in The Water and the Wild series by K.E. Ormsbee. It's a fantastic sequel to The Water and the Wild and even ends on a cliff-hanger to leave you wanting for more! I really enjoyed it!As we return to the land of Limn, we find that Lottie, Eliot, Adelaide, Oliver, their father, and Fife residing in the land of the will-o-wisps. The land of the will-o-wisps is such a fabulous, imaginative place! It's one of my favorite locales in [...]


  • I love it!!! I think it had more action in this book. Come on now who didn't like Dorian? There was one thing that was bothering me in first book and it was solved in this book. That is the our main characters ages(Adelaide,Fife,Lottie,Oliver,Eliot) I am at the same age as them and in first book, I think they acted more mature for their age. In second book, I could more understand their thinking style, emotions and it did pointed out more that they were children for my opinion.And the kissI was [...]


  • Firstly, read The Water and the Wild. This is the second book in the series and it doesn't do any hand-holding exposition. There are plenty of plot reminders and characters are re-established, it's just subtle and takes a few chapters. Seriously, read the first one (which is awesome), it will be easier that way.This series feels so classic and The Doorway and the Deep really digs into the high fantasy genre. The heroic quest, the mismatched band of adventurers, the burden of unsought power, magi [...]


  • I won a copy of this book in a giveaway.This is a wonderful book to give to your middle schooler. It has an imaginative plot that moves quickly and easily. The characters are well written and engaging. Lottie is especially attractive but the other characters are also interesting. The dialogue seems authentic and witty. The ending provides a real 'cliff-hanger'. My only problem was that I had not read the previous book in this series and I had some trouble getting up to speed with the plot. Howe [...]


  • Once again, Ormsbee delights with a truly magical book. It was so exciting and comforting to start this book and once again join in on Lottie's adventures and hear the clever conversations between Oliver and Eliot, the bickering between Fife and Adelaide, and the stubbornness of the inner workings of the mind of Lottie Fiske. This book is magical from beginning to end. I never cease to be in awe of Ormsbee's command of the writing craft and I truly lose myself in every one of her books. I never [...]


  • A little slower than the first, but it was still really sweet and cute and awwwww at all the friendship. The world-building is excellent, but as I am not a fan of cliffhanger endings, I'm a little irritated at the way this one concluded. That said, I am in for the long haul.Oh, and as cute as the new cover is, I am PISSSSSEEEDDDD at the cover change on this series. It hat the most unique cover ever for the first book. Chronicle, WHAT are you doing?


  • This is a wonderful sequel to The Water and the Wild. The scenery is vivid and the emotional angst between characters is heightened as one twist after another in their journey occurs. Spoiler alert: there is definitely a cliff hanger (literally!) ending to this book. I hope Ormsbee concludes Lottie's story in a final book.


  • This children's book is awesome. I actually love it even more than the first book - The Water and the Wild. Very interesting and exciting story. Likeable characters. I truly enjoyed reading this. Highly recommend.I received a free ARC from Chronicle Books through the Goodread First Reads program. Thanks for sending me this book!


  • Such a great adventure. I love this story; the characters, the writing, the story. This is why I read middle grade lit. I'm so anxious for the third book, there has to be a third book, and I can't find anything about how long I must wait. If anybody has seen anything about the next book please let me know.


  • Really enjoyed this sequel in the Water and the Wild series. Lottie is learning how to use her "keen" all while trying to save the Northerly's and Southerly's from destroying each other. The author did a great job of leaving me hanging for the the next book!


  • Facing new problems Lottie is off on another adventure. She faces new challenges in this tale. War is coming to the magical world she has come to love and now she faces heading to the place where answers are and the truth behind her ability. A must read.



  • Copy from publisher. I do like the new covers better than the original, but I'll pass this along to another school. Not quite the right flavor of fantasy for my crowd.
