Ten Thousand Skies Above You
Series: Firebird #2
Author: Claudia Gray
Published November 3rd 2015 by Harper Teen

Goodreads Summary
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.

When Paul’s soul is splintered into four pieces—pieces that are trapped within Pauls in other dimensions—Marguerite will do anything, and travel anywhere, to save him. But the price of his safe return is steep. If she doesn’t sabotage her parents in multiple universes, Paul will be lost forever.

Unwilling to sacrifice her family, Marguerite enlists the brilliant Theo to help. The two forge a plan to save Paul and the Firebird, but succeeding means outsmarting a genius and risking not only their lives but also the lives of their counterparts in every other dimension.

Their mission takes them to the most dangerous universes yet: a war-torn San Francisco, the criminal underworld of New York City, and a glittering Paris where another Marguerite hides a shocking secret. Each leap brings Marguerite closer to saving Paul—but her journey reveals dark truths that lead her to doubt the one constant she’s found between the worlds: their love for each other.

Why I'm waiting:
  • I fell in love with the different worlds we discovered in A Thousand Pieces of You, and just knowing there will be different ones here is amazing.
  • I want to explore the relationship between Marguerite and Paul further, as well as their relationships with Theo, as he wasn't shown positively in book 1.
    • I was lucky enough to receive a review copy of this book, and let me tell you that it definitely lived up to my expectations, and even exceeded them. I can't stress enough that this series is one to pick up!
