Ten thousand worlds. Ten thousand enemies. One love.

Marguerite Caine has done the impossible, traveling to alternate dimensions with the Firebird—the brilliant invention of her parents, her boyfriend, Paul, and their friend Theo. But she has also caught the attention of enemies willing to kidnap, blackmail, and even kill to use the Firebird for themselves.

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

Good gravy, this series.

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


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 he i

I am literally so in love with this series!!! Like!!! Claudia Gray, give my heart a break. I'm fragile.

This book was just like the first one. Full of action, twists, and drama!

PRE-READING: Not surprisingly, I didn't resist and began it right after finishing the first. Never said I was good at resisting books.
But please, can I have more sciency craziness this time? (Thank you Nina for the wonderful expression).

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:
2) Someone destroy this dumb love triangle bc I can’t take it anymore

So, in this book, Conely the Devil™, has forced
This second book was everything I needed it to be.

After the first book I wasn't sure where Gray would take the series next but I think she did a fabulous job.

And that ending

***5 fantastic stars***

Would you be able to betray your loved ones from multiple different universes in order to save your loved ones from your own universe?

My first reaction after reading this: WOAHMAZING. Like its predecessor, this book is one heck of a ride! Claudia Gray has continued the spectacular world of Marguerite and the Firebird in this second installment.

The plot: Ten Thousand Skies Above You jumps right into action with our MC Marguerite traveling to a new dimension, willing to do

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

“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.”

HOLY CRAP. I LOVED THIS SO MUCH. This was even better than the first book! I mean, literally amazing! A Thousand Pieces of You was undeniably great, but this one totally destroyed me. Everything was ... intense. Her journeys to all those dimensions were so much more awesome than in the first book. We got to see those other different selves of Marguerite that

This book is for you if… you enjoyed the prequel. You’ll devour this, it's got the only kind of love-triangle I can actually endure and offers more science to the whole multiverse-topic. The series in general is worthwhile. Warning: cliffhanger ahead.

Did I pick up the first book because I really liked the cover-design of the whole series?

The only hope I had for this book that wasn't fulfilled is page time for a moment where the title of these
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
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

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

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! ...more

When bought A Thousand Pieces of You I did so because of the beautiful cover. When I bought Ten Thousand Skies above You it was because I had just finished book one and was desperate for more, which is always a good place to start with a book! On a side note, the cover for this book is just as beautiful as the first one but it wasn’t a driving factor for me this time.

The story picks up with an intriguing first chapter which shows the reader where this novel is going to go to and then jumps right

Oh, holy shit. Holy fucking shit. Excuse my French, but that was even better than the first one. I just... Wow.

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.

Theo is my baby!! I love him so much.
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 can this not be nerve-wrecking and adrenaline-pumping! Woahhh the various plot twists I didn't see coming and that freaking ending - its mind-blowing to say the lea ...more

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
