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.
Ten Thousand Skies Above You is the second book in the Firebird series by the amazing Claudia Gray. The moment I finished A Thousand Pieces of You, I knew Ten Thousand Skies Above You would be one of my most anticipated reads for 2015. I absolutely couldn't wait to get started on this book and get back into this awesome world that Gray created. To be honest, I didn't know what to expect once I started reading the book, and I worried that it wouldn't compare to the first book that I loved so very much. Thankfully, I worried for nothing. This book was great!!

In Ten Thousand Skies Above You, we follow Marguerite as she jumps through the multiverse trying to save Paul, whose soul has been 'splintered' and scattered throughout multiple dimensions. Marguerite is willing to do anything to save Paul, even when it means being forced to do things that she really doesn't want to do for the enemy that she hates. And with every jump into a new dimension, Marguerite starts to question everything she thought was right in her world.

I love so many characters in this series. Marguerite is such a very strong character, willing to take all the risks and do whatever she needs to do for the ones she loves. Paul, who I have loved since the first book, is almost perfection, and it was interesting to see him so differently, yet so much the same, in all the different dimensions that Marguerite visited. We also get to see different versions of Marguerite's parents, sister, and Theo, all of who I loved in the first book. It was interesting to see how completely different they were, yet still so much the same as well, in each dimension.

Can I just take a moment here to say how completely perfect Marguerite and Paul are together? Seriously, they are definitely one of my most favorite couples of all time, and I'm so totally in love with Paul. Just had to get that out there, in case you couldn't tell from my random gushing. Wink.

The storyline for the book follows along nicely with its predecessor, and kept me on the edge of my seat in anticipation throughout most of the story. I loved the setting for the story, with all of the different alternate dimensions and how completely different they were from each other. I also enjoyed reading the flashback parts that were included in the story as well, especially when one character I love the most was sadly absent throughout most of the story. This allowed him to still be included in the story, and I loved that. The book ends with a pretty big cliffhanger ending, one that has me in much anticipation for the third book in the series to see what in the world is going to happen next!!

Overall; Ten Thousand Skies Above you was definitely worth the wait, and now that I've read the book, it's definitely one of my favorites of 2015! I cannot wait to get my hands on the third book and final book in the series, which currently has no release date, but will hopefully be next year! I must know what will happen next for Marguerite. If you've not yet checked out this series, PLEASE DO SO!

  1. Niiiice! Glad to hear this was awesome and didn't suffer from Second Book Syndrome! I adored ATPOY as well last year and was super excited for this one! Yet, it seems like it might be awhile until I can read it! Authors really need to take a teeny tiny break from writing so many awesome books! I need to get caught up still! LOL! Great review!


Thanks for stopping by! :)
