Ten Tousand Skies Above You

Author: Claudia Gray
Goodreads Rating: 4.39
Format: Finished Copy from Publisher
My Rating: 5 Crowns!

 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.


Besides having some of the best covers in the world. This series is tantalizing and impressive in ways that I'm not sure I can do justice in this little review. Not only has Claudia Gray created one amazing world that, but a multiverse within that world with layers on layers on layers. I can't help but love the way that each verse is different and yet the same. she has the same family and the same friends across the worlds.

One of my favorite worlds that Marguerite visits is the one where the Russian Tsar's never fell. Each universe is like a giant "What if" question posed to history. I can't help but imagine how many other worlds there are and how they all differ.

This book was just as engaging as the first book, when reading a trilogy or series you always run the risk of the middle book being just a filler, but this book did not have that problem. I was just ad absorbed with Theo and Marguerite and Paul as I was in the first book. Marguerite faced so many problems, not only ethical, but ones of the heart as she questioned her love for Paul.

This book left me with a yearning for the next book that I haven't felt from a book in a long time. All I know is that waiting a year for the next book is going to be torture, but at least I'll have the title and cover reveals to hold me over until then.
