Add to Goodreads

What they say: Ever since she used the Firebird, her parents' invention, to cross into alternate dimensions, Marguerite has caught the attention of enemies who will do anything to force her into helping them dominate the multiverse—even hurting the people she loves. She resists until her boyfriend, Paul, is attacked and his consciousness scattered across multiple dimensions. 

Marguerite has no choice but to search for each splinter of Paul’s soul. The hunt sends her racing through a war-torn San Francisco, the criminal underworld of New York City, and a glittering Paris where another Marguerite hides a shocking secret. Each world brings Marguerite one step closer to rescuing Paul. But with each trial she faces, she begins to question the destiny she thought they shared. 

The second book in the Firebird trilogy, Ten Thousand Skies Above You features Claudia Gray’s lush, romantic language and smart, exciting action, and will have readers clamoring for the next book.

What I say: I've been really looking forward to reading Ten Thousand Skies Above You and I wasn't disappointed. The plot is concise, exciting and sometimes kinda crazy but it kept me guessing right to the end.

The plot picks up after A Thousand Pieces of You and Marguerite finds herself on a mission to save Paul and help Theo. As with the first book we get to see the characters travel across dimensions, plus we even get to revisit some of our old favs (don't worry I'm not going to spoil anything by telling you who).

This book is more friendship focused than the previous story and I liked seeing a different side to Theo. Oh Paul!!! The fun aspect of a multiverse story is getting to meet different versions of the same character - you can never have too many Pauls!

There is lots of action and drama, but also some sweet romantic and happy moments. The science is interesting and not too complicated, or at least, it's simplified for readers and Marguerite to understand. I really like the Firebird series, roll on book 3!

4 Stars in my Sky!
