Ten Thousand Skies Above You (Firebird #2) by Claudia Gray
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.
Wow….. just wow. I still can’t get over the amazing worlds that Claudia has created in the Firebird series, how she has a plot that is so nicely woven and how she takes her characters shakes them up and turn them in different people yet still themselves. I could see the differences in Paul in the other worlds but I could also see our Paul (original Paul) and that’s amazing to me.
Also I was not expecting the shit that went down in this book and I was totally unprepared for the last chapter, with the cliffhanger ending that has pissed me the hell-off and the movements that lead up to that. I mean why Claudia, whyyyyy!
Marguerite is truly one of the braves characters. She doesn’t get all the science that goes on in this book, besides the art she’s a slightly above average person, not a genius like the others but when need she jumps into a situation without hesitation. She tries to do her best most of the time and when she messes up she stands and faces it head-on. She is trying her best to save everyone and she is not calling it quits when it looks like things are going to the crapper.
Besides the love she has for Paul is amazing, love the two of them together and they are going to break my heart. Paul has been scattered and now Marguerite has to find a different version of him in every world and she learns something about Paul, herself and them together along the way.
Things are pretty dark in this book and the more you learn (which there are some shockers) the darker this book get. Things aren’t black and white and the people Marguerite thinks she knows she might not know them all that much. I so excited to get my hands on the last book in this trilogy. I have know if our Marguerite can stop the Triad, will she be able to save everyone and herself and if she does save everyone, how will her world turn out? The big bad is here and it’s time is running out.
