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.

i have so many new series that i want to start, but i made myself swear an oath that i would finish old ones first. especially if i already own them. the struggle is real, my friends.

but luckily i didnt have to struggle too much with this one. this was just as exciting as the first book. however, this strongly fell under what i consider to be a filler book. not much really happens plot-wise. all the information that furthers the storyline easily fits into a single chapter, and it happens towards

*Full Review Update*
Good gravy, this series.

If you thought the first one was a wild ride full of twists and turns and EMOTIONS, just wait.

*SPOILERS FOR BOOK 1 & MILD SPOILERS FOR BOOK 2*

We jump right back in with Marguerite and the aftermath of the first book- everyone coming to terms with what really happened and all the new revelations.... and the consequences. Theo is now suffering the physical repercussions from the drug that *evil* Theo put in his body. Paul, being the kind soul that

The first 50% of this book suffered a very strong case of what I call, Second Book Syndrome™.

//It’s basically when book 2 flops bc it can’t compare to book 1 and is kinda just a filler to bridge book 1 to book 3//

But wait, could it actually have redeemed itself in the second half?!??!!??
Yes, yes it did.

We just need to establish something off the bat:

1) A message to Marguerite:

This is such a creative story -- it's like part sci-fi, part historical romance, part contemporary, part war/mafia stuff, and... just this awesome fantasy book that never gets dull. I'll admit it took me a bit to get through the first 50+ pages when it kept summarizing the previous book. But the story as a whole really does avoid any second book syndrome. The multiple dimensions definitely keep things moving and constantly new!

I liked how there are multiple versions of everyone and they're all t

I am having a HEART ATTACK
Just like the last book, this one was incredibly fast paced and I loved it. Claudia Gray introduces the background of the story in the blurb itself and jumps right into the story. I loved the plot, the characters, and most importantly that heart attack-inducing ending.

The story continues with Paul's conscience being splintered by none other than Conley. Marguerite, the perfect traveler, travels into different dimensions to retrieve each piece of Paul's conscience. But

I received an Advance Reader Copy from the publisher. This in no way impacted on my view.

This book was one I was not expecting to be able to read before publication. One day, I was browsing Twitter and noticed the Harper 360 account. Being the cheeky person I am, I asked if there was any way to receive a review copy; imagine my surprise when one comes in the post a few days later. I've been wanting to read this book since I got it in July, but my TBR hasn't let me. Even so, I devoured this 400+

EUGH. I was originally going to give this two stars because despite everything, the concept is still quite clever and interesting. But you know what? Fuck this book. The first book wasn't great but I still really enjoyed it. I was excited to start the second book but things just went downhill from there and here is why...

The short version is that this book turned into a clusterfuck of YA tropes and it was just so so annoying. The long version might be a bit of a rant so brace yourselves (obvious

“Ten thousand skies, and a million worlds,and it still wouldn’t be enough for me to share with you. Nothing less than forever will do.”

Ten Thousand Skies Above You is the sequel in the Firebird trilogy and is as equally, if not more, adventurous and exciting than the first as Marguerite travels through alternate universes to save the man she loves!

Essentially, Ten Thousand Skies Above You is consistent with the storyline of the first book, but now they are just trav

This book is the sequel to A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Grey.

It shows the next step in the battle against Triad and Wyatt Conley and reveals some much needed answers. Marguerite once again is travelling through dimensions, this time though she is travelling to save 2 people very dear to her. I don't want to spoil anything, but let's just say, she isn't travelling alone.

In this book Marguerite realizes that Paul and her aren't together in every dimension and that in some dimensions, the v

Okay well when I finished book 1 I said in my review that I would probably not read book 2. So I have anyway and it turned out to be an improvement!
There was a lot more happening in this book, more universes visited, more action for our heroes and a whole lot of twists and turns. I am still not convinced by the science behind the Firebirds which seems to change according to the needs of the plot. However I am always ready to disregard facts and enjoy the fiction when the story is good enough and

I hate cliffhanger, and this is the worst ever. The whole book is one hell of a ride. Lots of new locations, which is one of the things I love most about this book. Despite my love for this book I have some issues with it

-The internal monologue was so cringy.
-The unnecessary repititions of things that happened in the previous book and some that happened earlier in the book, it really made reading it a bit frustrating for me.
-The overly done love triangle, the biggest problem I have with love tri

Ten Thousand Skies Above You gave the "darker" aspects in dimension-traveling. The 1st book had problems, sure, but everything felt new and exciting there (and the romance scenes were everrrrrything). I loved the 1st book, so reading this book was a bit of a shock. The dimensions they visited in this book were so far from ideal - one being in war, one with a Mafia Paul, and (view spoiler), etc. etc.. It made sense to see these darker dimensions - but all ...more

That ending! I think there might have been a hint of an even bigger bombshell within the storyline, wonder if anyone else picked up on it.

Ten Thousand Skies Above You picks up shortly where it's predecessor left off, with Marguerite now back in her own dimension and Theo suffering from the effects of Nightthief, a drug supplied by Wyatt to keep Theo's other self from being discovered in Marguerite's dimension. Paul is

This book had what I was looking for. I am so happy the world-building was stronger and I got a better sense of how the Firebird technology worked. I missed Russia but I was happy to see our new dimensions! Some crazyyyy stuff went down and I liked the new aspects of each of our characters we saw. I wasn't the biggest fan of the direction the romance went in but I think it'll all work out in the end. I'd give this one 4.5 stars overall!

Okay. So Marguerite really just had a whole lot to deal with in this one and I can only imagine how hard that whole thing must have been for her, but damn.

I LOVED the different universes they traveled to in this book, each seemingly more intricate and more horrifying, yet not. I just... Ughhh this book was absolutely incredible.

A spectacular sequel! Never would I've imagine that things can become so much more thrilling! The plot definitely expanded a great deal and I am impressed. Travelling between alternate worlds with not the slightest clue what to expect, doing whatever it takes to save lives, uncovering shocking revelations, ties and conspiracies...how can this not be nerve-wrecking and adrenaline-pumping!

A great cover, with great characters, with a great plot! Nothing is more satisfying than these three combined and I thank Claudia Gray for it! It's so compelling and intensely written that it will break your heart, shatter it into pieces, then mend it, only to break it once more (Those who have already read the book, you know what I'm saying) So, if you haven't read it, ADD IT TO YOUR TBR FOR GOODNESS' SAKE!!

FAST FORWARD TO NOVEMBER 1 FOR THIS PLEASE!!! WHO'S WITH ME?!

Really enjoyed this - I think even more than the first installment. This book looks at exactly what bothered me in the first -- the idea of a romance between two people in multiple different dimensions in which they're quite different people every time. The book uses an interesting blend of science (the multiverse) and more fanciful concepts like destiny (the idea that even with a multiverse, certain people are drawn to one another.)

What I really enjoyed about this book was the way it used the w

Claudia Gray is not my real name. I didn't choose a pseudonym because my real name is unpleasant (it isn't), because I'd always dreamed of calling myself this (I haven't) or even because I'm hiding from the remnants of that international diamond-smuggling cartel I smashed in 2003 (Interpol has taken care of them). In short, I took a pseudonym for no real reason whatsoever. Sometimes this is actual ...more
