Ten Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray
Release Date: November 3rd 2015
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 Youfeatures Claudia Gray’s lush, romantic language and smart, exciting action, and will have readers clamoring for the next book.
Why Ten Thousand Skies Above You?
A Thousand Pieces of You was amazing. Time-traveler obsessed chick over here! I know the Firebird series isn't time travel, more like dimensional travel, but that's still really cool. And Claudia Gray creates such artsy, unique worlds - I can't wait to see all the new dimensions she's jumping to. Plus, a scattered consciousness? This is like a video game now.
Now if this was a real thing, it makes me wonder how each Raisa would differ from the next. Maybe I'd be in the Philippines instead... Or maybe New Jersey? All the possibilities, if only one thing was changed. Ah I can't wait until next month!
