Review: Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray

Title: Ten Thousand Skies Above You
Author: Claudia Gray
Series: Book Two in the Firebird Series
Published By: Harper Teen (November 3, 2015)
Source: ARC Copy Provided by the Publisher (in exchange for an honest review)
Genre: YA Fantasy/Time Travel
My Rating: 4 Stars!


Book 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.




Like a moth to the flame so goes me with books about time traveling, or in this case, dimension hoping. I am inexplicably drawn to them but unlike the moth, I seldom get burned from them. 

And after loving A Thousand Pieces Of You I jumped right into Ten Thousand Skies without hesitation and once again was completely caught up in the world that Gray created. 

With a slightly unique take on time travel, this once again, was a fun filled ride wrought with danger and surprises around every corner and new world. 

I really enjoyed this second installment and with the cliffhanger ending, I'm eagerly awaiting book three.

  4. I'm really happy to see this sequel was just as good as the first book for you, Ali! I had major issues with the first book, so I don't think I'll be picking this one up.
    But OMG. The cliffhangers! Hope you can survive it! ;)

  7. I'm so sad that I didn't get to try this series yet. I like Claudia Gray - I've got Stargazer, Hourglass, Evernight, and Afterlife in hardcover editions, for Heaven's sake :D I'm glad that this one keeps going strong. Hope to get to it soon...

    1. Not the Highlander ones but I have her Fever series and really liked it!

    2. The highlanders are so good. They're my favorite time travel. There are bits that years later still make me snort over them.

    3. I'll see if I can find them then, ;)

  23. I’m very intrigued with the idea of time traveling and alternate dimensions. I’ve seen this series around, but I have a hard time with cliffhangers, so I’ll wait until the series would be released.

  24. Definitely one of those people who tend to shy away from time traveling books. But hey, this might be something different, eh?

  25. I've read about a gazillion time travel books in my time and only one dimension jumping one-at least that I can think of anyway. Sounds like it was a good read for you. Thanks for sharing :)

  26. Sad as this may be, I don't do well with time travel, I blame it on my black and white mindset; thus it's difficult for me to grasp the time travelling elements.

    I've read mixed reviews about this series too, although, I am extremely glad you've found great pleasure in them :D

    ReplyDelete
  27. Not actually the biggest fan of time travel, and I haven't been in a hurry to pick the first book up - but the second book really appeals to me! I wanna know about this secret this other Marguerite in Paris holds.:D

    ReplyDelete
  28. Sounds like a great second installment to this series. I'll have to check it out.

  29. I had some issues with the first book but it was okay for me. I heard the audio for book one last year and may check out the audio for this one too.

  30. I'm with you, I love the whole time travel and dimension hopping thing. I still haven't read the first book, but I might wait now to read them all together. Especially since this one has a cliffhanger! Thanks for the warning. I'm glad you enjoyed it!
