Ten Thousand Skies Above You (Firebird, #2) by Claudia Gray 

This review will contain spoilers so if you haven’t read it, don’t read the review.


4 stars


Goodreads description: 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.


This was pretty good!

As I’ve read this I realized I liked the parallel universes even more than I liked the original universe. They were really fun and different and I so want to see how the stories of people in the universes turned out to be, especially the New York one.

I missed Paul, the normal Paul. All those other Pauls were not a lot different, but they still had something that’s different – I guess that’s what this series is all about.

Why I’m giving this 4 stars instead of one is because it was good but it wasn’t great. I wasn’t mind blown although I liked it a lot.

The thing I kept thinking about is how unethical this is. I mean, even though you are crossing the universes for a good reason, doesn’t mean you should do it. They were taking other people’s lives and I had a huge problem with that.

Imagine if someone did that to you (I guess Marguerite will experience that in the next book lol).

The plot twist at the end was very unexpectable and i can’t wait to read the next book.

Also, I ship Josie and Conley!
