Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray
Cross dimensional travel isn’t without price – even if it’s your parents who created the Firebird. Marguerite has captured the interest of people who are set on achieving the complete dominance of the multi-universe. Until now, she has successfully managed to avoid them but everything changes when they attack her boyfriend, Paul, and scatters his soul into alternate dimensions. The race to piece his splintered consciousness back together sends Marguerite into a war-torn of San Francisco, the dirty New York City underground and the glittering city of lights and love, Paris. Her enemies are everywhere and stand ready, waiting for her arrival. Will Marguerite be able to bring Paul back without losing herself or will she crumble under the pressure of the trials?
Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray is the sequel of A Thousand Pieces of You and the second novel in the Firebird trilogy. Right away you are thrown back into a riveting plot. The multi-dimension universe is fantastically and intelligently crafted. The characters are dynamic and intriguing as they are constantly changing from one reality to another. But most importantly, the novel hooks you in right from the beginning, keeps you on the edge of your seat with all the plot twists and leaves you wondering as it ends on a cliff-hanger. The final installment of this trilogy is called A Million Worlds With You.
I give Ten Thousand Skies Above You a 4 out of 5 stars and would recommend this novel to readers interested in a truly unique read. The idea of parallel universe in YA fiction has never truly been explored the way Gray has done so (at least to my knowledge) and is worth the time. Plus, it has a gorgeous cover! You can’t contest me on that. This novel is recommended for readers ages 13 and up.
