Firebird #3

A Million Worlds with You

Rate this book
A million universes. A million dangers. One destiny.

The fate of the multiverse rests in Marguerite Caine’s hands. Marguerite has been at the center of a cross-dimensional feud since she first traveled to another universe using her parents’ invention, the Firebird. Only now has she learned the true plans of the evil Triad Corporation—and that those plans could spell doom for dozens or hundreds of universes, each facing total annihilation.

Paul Markov has always been at Marguerite’s side, but Triad’s last attack has left him a changed man—angry and shadowed by tragedy. He struggles to overcome the damage done to him, but despite Marguerite’s efforts to help, Paul may never be the same again.

So it’s up to Marguerite alone to stop the destruction of the multiverse. Billions of lives are at stake. The risks have never been higher. And Triad has unleashed its ultimate weapon: another dimension’s Marguerite—wicked, psychologically twisted, and always one step ahead.

In the conclusion to Claudia Gray’s Firebird trilogy, fate and family will be questioned, loves will be won and lost, and the multiverse will be forever changed. It’s a battle of the Marguerites…and only one can win.

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 actually the best reason to do things.

I live in New Orleans. So far, in life, I've been a disc jockey, a lawyer, a journalist and an extremely bad waitress, just to name a few. I especially like to spend time traveling, hiking, reading and listening to music. More than anything else, I enjoy writing.

"Wouldn't you love me if I were scarred, or sad, or hurting?"

If I had to rate the book alone it would be something between 4 and 4.5 rounded down to four, but since this was the last in the series and I loved this series insanely... five stars it is, and with all my heart.

•I am afraid I must once again redirect you to my reviews of the previous installments in the series, A Thousand Pieces of You and Ten Thousand Skies Above You , for what concerns the sciency part -so, mainly, the dimensional travel. I still think there are things that just don't make sense, and although in this finale once or twice Marguerite tries not only to explain, but to actually convince the readers that it does work that way and that it is reasonable, I can't help but think that the scientific side of this story is so leaky it holds but very little water. I'm usually very picky and meticulous when it comes to science, and when I say very, I mean really very (?). Funny and delicious and formidable thing about this series: this time around, I didn't care the littlest bit. Or rather, I cared in book one and, partly, book two, but then I just gave in to love. No point in fighting it anymore.

Another thing I'm normally very fastidious about and that, as I see it, it's fair of me to point out, is that sometimes the rules that govern the dimensional travel feel slightly too elastic. I'm referring in particular to .
Now, one, it sounds waaaaaay too convenient, two, I don't see the logic behind the fact that if it's broken it comes back, if it's intact it stays there, and three, convenient again!
You'd been warned: this random pulling out of ad-hoc rules really, really irks me.
Bu again, Funny and delicious and formidable thing about this series: I didn't care! I was having fun, I was dying to know what would happen next and everyone was happy. Why would I want to complain? Besides, if it felt too much like the rules were being bent, at least it was consistent. The rules are never broken; the author only plays with them, if a little too freely. I can live with that.

•One of my biggest fears for this book concerned Paul and the way he would deal with what happened to him, and they were, sadly, partly justified. The book sees him going through the you're-too-good-for-me stage, a trope that I personally despise a lot. I think I would have enjoyed it even more, had this issue been handled some other way. But Paul is still the cutest and sweetest guy that ever walked the Earth(s), and once again it was utterly impossible for me not to love him to pieces. I melt -melt- inside when, in that splendid chapter 21, he just walks in and tells them apart by sight alone.

"-and you're mine."

It was so perfect I could have died right there, on the spot. My heart did a double take, you know. Like I'd just jumped from a height, or taken off on a plane. Paul Markov is one of the hugest book crushes I've ever had, and I have no regrets. The fact that he's smoking hot certainly helps too.

•Back to chapter 21, not only is it the cutest thing ever, or the most epic thing ever, or the most romantic thing ever; it also is the funniest. (Yes, I'm very much trying to make you curious about what actually happens in it. Me busted.)

"I know, little brother," Theo says with a wry grin, leaning against the wall with his arms crossed. "I had this dream too."

Claudia Gray is a master in storytelling -and you know I don't throw that around that easily. She knows the timing, she knows how to set the pace, she knows how to build a plot so that these three elements merge together in a perfect balance, so as not to make the story too slow nor too fast, too empty nor too packed. The are a couple of moments a little less brilliant that Gray's standard, a couple of useless conversations or episodes that, in my opinion, had to feel more emotional (this I blame on the writing, actually), but they are only a few and aren't very likely to spoil your reading experience. One instance could be .
So, yes, the plot is stunning. One universe after the other, one world after the other -fabulous. I had no breathing space and I didn't want any. So good.

Evil Theo. You actually brought tears to my eyes, man. And, Good Theo, you did too. Too precious for this world. (Good thing you have plenty at your disposal.)

•If I had to point out another flaw, well, probably the villain's characterization was a little weak. Like the evil version of Marguerite's parents, who .

"We're not promised to be together no matter what. But in dimension after dimension, world after world, fate gives us a chance."

➽ There's pretty much all there is to say. Obviously I'm lying, because in a minute my brain will be flooded with things I had to say and should have written in the review (I wouldn't feel comfortable if that didn't happen; with me, it's par for the course) but okay.
What I can add is, this series gave me so much. It came in a moment when I really, really needed a story to obsess over (and a book boyfriend to crush over) and it perfectly fulfilled my expectations. I loved it immensely in spite of all its flaws, and I'm pretty sure someone, once, said that "in spite of" is the building block of love itself. It's easy to love perfection, but imperfection is what makes you you, which is also the message this series tries to convey.
And to me, it got through.

*tiny voice*
But please, book, can you let them be together?

EDIT 17/02/2016: Aaaaand COVER


Good God have mercy on us and on the whole world and on Paul Markov *produces more drool than a snail and a dog combined* *ew what the heck did I just say*

And it's Rome! Italy! That's my country! Is this another good reason to hyperventilate or is this another good reason to hyperventilate?

Full review update! 4.5 maybe? It was really good- but I have a lot of feelings some of them mixed.

The plot was just as wack as the first two which honestly is what makes this series so good. You can literally land anywhere - any universe/dimension/country... LITERALLY anywhere. This book is no exception- you'll get to visit some wild places. It picks up right where book 1 left off, and there are no unanswered questions. The first chapter will seem a bit out of place - but just go with it.

In essence, this in entire story is just plain fun and Claudia Gray is a wild author and I love her for it. I'm interested in checking out her other series now for sure.

-----------Spoilers Below (though the big ones are hidden)------------

Here are some of the major highlights for me...

-Theo. I love Theo. This is no secret, especially if you've read my other reviews. Everything about this guy. Theo is by far the best part of this book, and even in his evil form, he's got a good heart. HE LOVES HER SO MUCH UGH. Even evil Theo does something horrid but kinda redeems himself. Not to mention he has much more personality than Paul and he's just more interesting to read about. Plain and simple.

-The scene with all the Marguerites is THE BEST. Not to mention completely clever and hilarious.

-The grand duchess Marguerite might be my favorite character after Theo.

-The crazy plot twists that make your heart stop beating! Seriously, Claudia... how do you come up with this stuff?

Here's what didn't work for me this time...

Honestly, I understand why people like Paul but I was just not feeling it. Marguerite was in a constant mental battle over him and I got a little tired of her drooling and going on and on about the guy. I don't hate him, but by golly I was over them two. That being said, (again, I really don't hate him..) but he was so completely unstable and I'm just not a fan of staying in unstable relationships. Don't get me wrong- I'm all for the "stick by the one you love" mentality (I've been with my husband for 10 years - married for 4 of those years.) But when you're in the dating arena, hanging around emotionally unstable men in those conditions can be toxic.

I also must add that all the journeys and dimensions got pretty confusing. Claudia did a pretty good job of keeping me on track for all that she threw at me but it was still a lot to take in and I found myself having to take several mental breaks.

Overall Impression...

Even though I'm not 100% happy with the ending, I still really love this series. Plus, I caught Claudia's twitter message when she says "Feel free to ship any of my characters. There are multiple dimensions and anything is possible!" So, I'm taking her advice, and I'm going to live in my little world of denial that there is any universe that Theo and Marguerite aren't together. Hah, seriously though- this is a fantastic series.

This review is approximately 3 years late, I wanna apologize but I feel like it’s going to be a lie bc I just keep doing it.


Reasons to Read this Book:
- You’ve made it this far so why not?
- The love triangle finally dies
- Have you SEEN that cover?
- Paul Markov is featured
- Marguerite is less whiny ((tho whininess still remains))
- Paul Markov’s face
- I mean, you’re not a quitter, you’ve been through book 2, so you’ve faced the worst of it
- Eh, it’s pretty short
- Marguerite’s parents are goals

Valid Reasons why you Would NOT want to Read this Book
- The love triangle has lasted two books
- Marguerite is the main character
- Marguerite does dumb things
- Cliché tropes that I cannot mention bc **spoilers**
- Excessive self-doubt from EVERYONE
- Eh, you might as well read it, why the heck not?


This book made up for the tragedy that was book 2 but not enough to compete with book 1. There were some hella cute moments ft. my son, Paul but I was also annoyed at how childish the characters were.

So, it was decent but not amazing.

“But just because something’s been damaged doesn’t mean it’s ruined.”

3.5 stars!!

If you didn’t already know, this series is one that I adore. I have loved Claudia Gray as an author for almost 10 years and this series made me absolutely love her more. I hadn’t reread this book so I thought now was a good time as any to finally dive back into this final book and experience all the feels all over again. It was just as perfect as the first time. I loved it.

Original review:

I was lucky enough to read this masterpiece of a book 5 days before the release date (I preordered it a month ago and somehow the online store ended up getting their stock in 7 days before the release). Because of this I won't give any spoilers away but instead I will tell you that, if you love this series as much as I do, you will NOT be disappointed at all. It was an absolutely amazing conclusion to the trilogy and I am heartbroken that it is over.

I cried 5 times. I laughed out loud every few pages. I fell in love with these characters all over again. My heart was ripped to shreds and then slowly put back together. This was spectacular. The epilogue at the very end was everything I wanted. I cannot put into coherent sentences how I felt. All I can say is that I hope Claudia Gray keeps writing more novels, especially if they are as beautiful as this.

Whenever you get around to reading this, please discuss it with me! I need to tell someone my feels.

Full review to come after the release date!

I was SO worried going into this conclusion because I loved the first two books in the series so much and I thought that nothing could possibly live up to them. I was SO wrong. This series is absolutely phenomenal and deserves WAY more hype than it gets. Such an amazing series through and through. I fully intend to re-read this entire series for years to come. It was just so satisfying. LOVED IT.

I love it! This is so much better than the second book, a fantastic end to the trilogy. I was a bit skeptical about reading this because I was scared the author might not portray Marguerite fighting her other self well, but I was so wrong, it was so well depicted.

The cliffhanger from book two was well handled here, the author did not drag it along but settled the situation in the first few pages. The love triangle finally came to an end, and no stupid jealousy and the like.

The travels to other worlds here was so well portrayed, some were the ones from the first two books but others were new, and I have a new favourite world and its the cloneverse, its like nothing you've seen before in the series, if you think oceanverse was weird, well think again.

The plot in total is amazing, I think this series is my best YA sc-fi so far, interdimensional travel has never looked this cool, there was more of scheming than the love in this and I like that, I hate when the romance is more than the actual plot in anything other than a romance novel.

Lastly, I love the characters in this book, the character development was amazing, Theo is still my favourite of them all, I like Paul, Marguerite, her sister and parents also, like that they were all included in saving the universe or universes in this case.

A beautiful finale to one of the most inventive series I have ever read.

This book was definitely not a let down and met all the standards the previous ones set. The entire book moves quickly, but it got even better after I passed chapter 18. We enter new dimensions but also revisit some of the previous ones, which was great. A Million Worlds With You brings together everything we've learnt so far and ties the story together in an amazing finale.

The book starts of with the Marguerite from the home office taking over our protagonist's body. I especially liked the fact that the above mentioned problem is not dragged out, but rather used as a beginning to a book that moves way past it. Paul, whose soul was recently splintered and put back together, struggles with piecing himself back to what he was.

I loved the structure of the world throughout the trilogy and the plot was framed well. Getting to know the characters in each dimension added a great depth to their character and its potential to change paths. Claudia Gray opens our eyes to the fact that each choice we make, however simple, gives away to various outcomes and reveals a whole new course for our lives.

Just like the story itself, the covers of each book in the trilogy are marvellous and represent the nature of our protagonist and also provide a view of some the dimensions we visit, and they shall remain some of my favorite cover designs ever.

I know I'm in the minority on this one, but I really did not enjoy this series. I kept with it, hoping that the final book would bring some redemption to the story. But sadly it was just more of the same, if not worse.

Things really took a strange turn in this book and it really threw me off! I know it's a fantasy/science fiction story but some things were just TOO weird for me. It's hard to explain without any spoilers, but there's one event that brought things to a really bizarre place and from then on, I totally lost interest and really struggled to finish this book.

And then to top it off instead of becoming more mature, it almost seemed like Marguerite was becoming MORE immature as the story went along. She already drove me nuts as it was but this book succeeded in bringing that annoyance to a whole other level!

This series was definitely a huge letdown for me! I heard so many rave reviews and I'm just so disappointed it didn't live up to them. The concept started out SO promising but the characters totally spoiled it. And then the weirdness of the third book was just too much for me!

I... I'm so sad that this series is over now because I swear, I will never get enough of the infinite worlds and the beauty that Claudia Gray manages to bring to each and every one.

This series will always be a favorite of mine, so fantastically well written and with a cast of characters that's unforgettable.

It will make you contemplate what some of your worst features could possibly be given any sort of other circumstances or what will always remain, well... you.

Reading this one just makes me want to start the series all over again. Without a doubt one of the most creative stories I've had the pleasure of reading.

✅ World-building/Concept
✅ Action
✅ Characters
✅ Plot/plot twists
🆗 Romance

We got to visit many places in this book and it's one of the things that I really enjoyed about this series: the unpredictability. We never know in which universe Marguerite will end up. There are some intense plot twists in this story, it kept me at the edge of my seat both times I read it.

The relationship between Marguerite and Paul was a little weird in that book. I understand where Paul is right now with the splintering, but Marguerite spent so much time thinking everything over and fighting him over their relationship... I get that it is a logical part of the story, but I missed the old Paul and Marguerite at times.

The ending was not as satisfying as I would have wished but I am still happy with this last book and I really enjoyed reading this series (both times)!

4.25 STARS in every multiverse ★★★★✩
This book is for you if… you’re searching for a worthwhile ya series that is action packed and full of twists. This is a fantastic series.

Dead in the middle of this book it struck me that the Firebird books are total
Netflix Series material. It's action packed, diverse and offers a lot of space for the art of filming and interpretation to be unleashed onto this matserpiece.

Looking at the series as a whole and A Million Worlds With You in particular, I still have trouble pinpointing exactly what is missing for my excitement to leap to a full 5 stars. My reading buddy (and as of recently, also my art buddy) Dora adores the entire series and gave them 5 stars and I'd really like to join in on that. No such luck, though. It lacks the certain something for me to do that. Further, the ending was a bit too… [insert intense struggle for words here] … both uneventful and too smooth in my eyes; if the entire plot is action-packed, the ending needs to be almost over the top to fit the general atmosphere of the story

On the plus side, the title finally made sense in this one, something Dora and I both have been criticising from A Thousand Pieces of You on.

I don't want the negative parts to take up too much of this review, so let's just offer a minute of silence to one of my favourite book boyfriends, Paul Markov, the scientist.

He broke my heart multiple times which is why I'll have no other choice but to write to Claudia and demand compensation for all the hurt.

What’s happening.
‘This role doesn’t need an adventurer as much as it needs someone who can... look at each world with fresh eyes. Who can perceive things deeply. Not an adventurer—an artist. You were the one we needed all along.’

(My friend Dora, the most gifted artist, in a nutshell] But also this, sooo....)

Again, Margeruite goes on an adventure, hoping to safe the multiverses. It doesn't take long for her to realise that even more might be at stake than several dimensions, as unbelievable as it might sound..
enemy wears the same face
every new world begins with a near-death situation
the idea of fate is threatened
alliance of the multiverses
knowing yourself so well, you can beat...yourself
Paul effing Markov

“Please, I thought. Don't be fooled. Look inside my eyes and see the difference. It's our only chance.
Please, Paul. Know me.
And he did. He did.”

Honestly, I'm so torn between three and four stars with this final instalment!
This book was without doubt the best from the series (weakest one was first book for me) and I had far less problems with it - one of the big improvements was the fact that the story was less centered on romance. The heroine finally had some priorities, considering she was facing Triad and big threat to all of the realities. Marguerite and Paul's relationship took some serious blows after book two and I could finally connect to them more. Suddenly, I found their relationship far more intriguing then before, mainly for its imperfections.

“But just because something’s been damaged doesn’t mean it’s ruined.”

As a heroine, Marguerite finally grew up a little, got tougher and realized that it's not all about fate, but the choices we make - and the fact that only we are resposible for the consequences of our actions. I was totally proud of her and so glad that, while she had her love obsession moments - she fucking prioritized! Bravo, girl!

“Fate doesn’t guarantee us a happy ending. We’re not promised to be together no matter what. But in dimension after dimension, world after world, fate gives us a chance. Our destiny isn’t some kind of mystical prophecy. Our destiny is what we do with that chance.”

Theo and Paul were overall great character as well. Not quite remarkable, in a way that I know I won't really remember them after a while, but nonetheless likeable.

“Because I want you to be happy. With or without me, whatever it takes.” Theo sighs. “That’s the difference between wanting someone and loving them.”

A Million Worlds with You was also the most action-packed book from this series! I was constantly hooked - there were no boring parts like it was in book one. It was entertaining - there was a few chapters which really reminded me of Orphan Black even - suspenseful and filled with tons of intriguing worlds from start to finish. I did have some problems with it but I immensely enjoyed this story nonetheless!

“Songs and movies tell us that when you meet the one you love, the planet stops spinning, the clouds open up, and your heart begins to sing. Reality is messier than that. The truth is, we meet new people all the time, but we can never tell exactly what they might mean to us. You never know who you’ll forget, or who you’ll need forever.”

WOW🤩 I don't even know how to describe what I'm feeling. I have never read anything like this series, I loved the world-building, the characters, and all the events. You know it was good when after finishing I want to go find anything I can set in this world, a short story, novella, or literally anything! Ah now I'm definitely checking out more Claudia Gray books, I can't believe I never heard of her before. This is not coherent at all but basically I'm saying it's SOOOO GOOD GO READ IT OMG!😱🤯

This was a satisfactory conclusion to the trilogy. It was certainly action packed and the story was good. There were a few very clever twists and turns in there that I did not expect and we got our happy ending.
Marguerite was a pain right through to the end though. Three books of feeling herself responsible for every bad thing that happened yet never once considering that she could maybe change her ways. I got used to her after a while and skimmed her endless self examinations.
Overall this was an entertaining trilogy based on a clever premise which became quite mind boggling by book three. I stopped trying to understand and just enjoyed the story!

“Fate doesn’t guarantee us a happy ending. We’re not promised to be together no matter what. But in dimension after dimension, world after world, fate gives us a chance. Our destiny isn’t some kind of mystical prophecy. Our destiny is what we do with that chance".

Hay muy pocas veces en las que el libro final de una saga o trilogía me deja completamente satisfecha, pero A Million Worlds With You fue absolutamente fenomenal. Aquí todo empieza con la Marguerite Malvada tomando el cuerpo y el control de la Marguerite original para intentar que todos los planes de la megacorporación para la que trabaja salgan bien... y se destruyan unos cuantos universos. Además, por otro lado tenemos a Paul, que acaba de sobrevivir a que su alma se haya fragmentado y aún está intentando entender y asimilar los diferentes pensamientos y personalidades de sus otros "yo".

En esta última entrega los protagonistas siguen viajando por nuevos universos (y revisitando otros) para buscar a aliados que los ayuden a combatir el plan malévolo de algunos de sus otros "yo", que pretenden destruir universos enteros sólo para poder revivir a una persona. Me encantó ver cómo las diferentes Marguerites y sus padres se unían a esta coalición para defender sus universos, a las personas que aman y todo lo que han construido en sus vidas.

Creo que una de las cosas más interesantes de esta trilogía es que, de una manera súper trepidante y divertida, Claudia Gray nos plantea todo lo que podría llegar a suceder si ciertos tipos de tecnología cayeran en manos ambiciosas y hambrientas de poder. ¿Tener la capacidad de viajar entre universos te da el derecho a modificar la vida de tus otros "yo"? ¿Qué tan abusivo es que esos otros "yo" tengan que albergarte en su propio cuerpo sin poder decir nada al respecto? En fin, me gustaban mucho estos planteamientos éticos sobre la tecnología que siempre están súper presentes en las novelas de ciencia ficción.

¿Y qué decirles del triángulo amoroso que tanto amé con el pasar de las páginas? Para mí siempre estuvo clarísimo que Marguerite y Paul tenían que estar juntos, pero a medida que visitaban universos y se daban cuentan de que no siempre terminaban juntos y que Theo era muchísimas veces una constante en la vida de ella... bueno, las cosas se pusieron más interesantes. ¡Y todo era tremendo! Paul es un chico ideal y, desde hace años, cuando leí el primer libro y lo conocí como el Teniente Markov de Rusia lo adoré. Pero, claro, luego está Theo y todas las aventuras que vive con Marguerite en los diferentes universos, los sentimientos que están ahí en la superficie, pero a la vez fuera del alcance de los dos... y sufría. Sufría mucho porque Theo se merecía ser absolutamente feliz. Ay, dioses, me hago un lío, pero lo que quiero decir es que este no es un triángulo amoroso estúpido, sino uno muy bien construido y que, cuando se resuelve, te deja con el corazón hecho trizas, a pesar de que puedes estar feliz con la conclusión.

Creo que A Million Worlds With You terminó de una forma increíble, sobre todo porque, para mí, leer que Marguerite tuviera que sobrevivir a tantísimos intentos de su yo maligna por matarla, por acabar universos enteros con ella dentro era tremendamente emocionante. Eso, sumado a la trama romántica me mantuvo absolutamente enganchada hasta el último momento. ¡Me encantó todo!

My love for this series is overwhelming and even though AMWWY was my top needed book of the year, I couldn't bring myself to start it because it would be over.

As always, I love this cast of characters, the intricacies of the worlds, and how the science and tech isn't too science-y or tech-y. This installment is quite the roller coaster. There were several scenes I didn't even know I wanted and some I could have done without.

Regardless, it's one hell of an ending.

3 stars? 4 stars? I’m not sure. So I’m settling on 3.5 for now.

I obviously didn't love this one as much as I loved books 1 and 2. I felt like the plot was a bit all over the place and I sometimes found myself having a hard time keeping track and/or understanding what was really going on. I just wasn't invested as much as I hoped I would be. At first, I had trouble remembering events of the past 2 books but Gray did a good job giving a concise summary so it was alright.

However, I still adore Paul Markov and Theo Beck. They're two precious babies and I'll die for them.

4.5 stars - great finale to a creative and romantic series! I love this series and I'm so happy to see how it all wraps up. This is a highly underrated YA series and I recommend 100%! Marguerite, Paul, Theo, just everything. I love every dimension and all the jumping between worlds. If you want a new twist on science fiction, check this one out!

A good ending to the series, blessedly heartwarming, with some decent twists. I just wish it had been a little more...shocking. The ending was a little pedestrian for my tastes. I guess I expected something a bit more mind-blowing, but maybe this is for the best.

3.5/5 stars

A solid finish to the series, but I do feel like as a novel, it dragged on, seemed repetitive and really made me dislike the love/romance arc. What I would LOVE to see is this series brought to television. Give it 2-3 seasons. I think it could be very Doctor Who meets Timeless. This third book, in particular, stands out to me as something that would thrive as a television show.

What did you guys think of this series overall?

A Million Worlds with You is absolutely INSANEEE. I honestly was nervous because I had NO IDEA how this was going to end. You are going to get angry at the situation, annoyed at the characters, feel a little teary-eyed at some beautiful, yet sad moments, and touched to see characters with such strong connections. It was an emotional rollercoaster, and I’m still recovering~

For the first about 60% of the book, I was not feeling it. Everything was going downhill – I didn’t like where it was going, didn’t like how shit kept on happening. I was also still mind-boggled and to be honest, a little bit pissed, that all of this mess started because two scientists became so curious about other dimensions that their discoveries led to a whole lot of destruction. I mean, sure, dimension-traveling sounded cool conceptually, in a lofty, far-away idea. However, after seeing these characters fucking up other people’s lives in other dimensions, and other people fucking up their dimension – I was like, “Ughh. This shouldn’t be happening at all.” Curiosity literally killed the cat in this case. (mini rant here)

Anyway, I wanted to see some butt-kicking because everything felt so angst-filled and devastating. Fortunately, after a little more than halfway in, things started picking up. Plans were made. People were getting their shit together, and finally, finally – they were moving forward and putting plans into action that would make the protagonist not so helpless and passive anymore. The plot in the 2nd half of the book was simply much better – more entertaining, and I was truly invested in what was going to happen, who was going to die, and most importantly (because I’m a sucker for romance), would Marguerite and Paul finally be together?

There were definitely some really good moments. I had a few tears in my eyes in heart-wrenching scenes. And my heart felt so warm and happy when I saw cute, romance scenes between Marguerite and Paul. This book was quite simply an emotional rollercoaster My heart literally could not take all of the plot twists, and I was scared out of my mind to see who was going to survive this mess. I have to give props to Claudia Gray for writing such a crazzzzzy (albeit frustrating at times) plot, in which I could not predict what would happen at all. I need to some seriously fluffy, no-stress books after reading this one.

The characters were as strong as the plot, I think (maybe even stronger). Marguerite was very annoying in the 2nd book… and she was kinda annoying in the 3rd, but as the story progressed, I was proud that she began to take initiative in the plan to save all of the dimensions, and she also properly felt remorse for how she changed (and messed up) the lives in other dimensions. It was a good introspection moment here. In addition, I admired her thought process when she realized that you could be a hero or villain in any dimension based on your circumstances. It was wise of her, instead of judging, to see look deeper and see what made people act the way they do. She saw that she herself could be capable of monstrous acts, along with everyone else. Thus, I felt proud of how she was more careful and mature by the end of the book.

I love Paul. That’s literally the 1st thing I can think of when I think of Paul. However, he did get frustrating at times in this book. He had more “screen-time” than the other books, fortunately, but after the events of the last book, he became more guarded and angry. I still loved Paul, no matter what though, in any dimension, because aghhh he cared about Marguerite so much. His character’s loyalty and earnestness were some of the best things about this whole trilogy. I literally livedddd to see romance scenes between him and Marguerite (there were only a few – but they were really good ones).

Theo. I am surprised by how much I adore Theo. I was whatever about him in the 1st book, and I was skeptical but still liked him in he 2nd book. In this book, I just loved him. He was a good friend and a funny, lovable guy. He grew up since the 1st book, and I loved how his character developed (as well as the other dimensions’ Theo). Also, YAY because there was officially no love triangle in this book, and so I was glad to see Theo just being Theo.

The parents. I loved the parents, but again, I was bitter about their curiosity. Of course it’s not alllll their fault and their intentions aren’t bad. However, this dimension-traveling thing was such a headache, it needed to stop. I did love how much they loved and cared for Marguerite, Paul, and Theo. They were great parents and such a cute, funny, and weird couple. My favorite part about them was how they showed support throughout the book.

Final Thoughts
I’m giving this 3 stars. That may sound like a “lower” rating, but I’m actually pleased by it. It’s a solid 3. The plot was slow, but it did get way, way better in the 2nd half of the book. I was completely invested in the characters, the romance, and what the heck was going to happen. The plot and characters were memorable in my opinion. Even though I officially despise the idea of dimension-traveling, in real life and in books, because they were too much of a headache, I did appreciate how much thought was put into crafting the plot. I’m not a fan of angst, and this surely had a lot of that, so that may had taken away part of my enjoyment, though. Overall, a good trilogy – a super creative plot, with endearing characters and good character developments.

“I’ve been so shaken by finding my one worst self that I never considered how much it might change our fates by finding someone else’s best self. Travel through enough dimensions and maybe you’d find the hero and the villain in everyone.”

I AM SO NERVOUS FOR THIS. I loved the 1st book, didn't like the 2nd, and this 3rd.. will pretty much determine it all.
