Ten Thousand Skies Above You (Firebird) Reviews
Ich fand den zweiten Teil besser als den ersten, am besten fand ich jedoch den dritten Teil. Insgesamt ist die Trilogie schön geschrieben, interessante Handlung, tolle Idee. Die Cover sehen super aus, wirklich tolles Design.
I absolutely loved the first novel in this series, A Thousand Pieces of You, and this book was just as good. The story is woven throughout the multiverse as Marguerite fights to save both Paul and Theo. And like the first book, this one makes you think about life, choices, and their unforeseen ramifications.The events of the first novel changed Marguerite, changed her perspective on life and her beliefs about it. Travelling through the multiverse and seeing the "what if's" has opened her eyes to how different choices can lead to vastly different lives. But those beliefs get tested yet again as she travels through more dimensions and finds unexpected versions of the people she loves. Those versions make her question everything.And much like the first novel, the lines between good and evil are often blurred. Whose intentions are good, causing them to do questionable things? Whose intentions are just plain evil? It is this kind of gray area that makes this such a thought-provoking series. How far would you go to save the ones you love? How far is too far? Is there such a thing as too far? These are just some of the questions that Marguerite has to answer.The dimensions exist during the same period of time, but it is fascinating to see the different ways in which they have evolved. To think about what that means, in terms of multiverse theory, is incredible. The Russiaverse, a throwback in time. The Home Office, a vision of the future. The New York-verse, an alternate reality. Each dimension has different versions of our characters, making them all ever more complex.The story and its premise are, simply put, fascinating! I couldn't recommend this more!
I think I enjoyed this book better than the first! I liked having everything established and it was neat to see these concepts expanded even more. One thing I love about good fantasy/sci-fi writers is when they make the readers think they've gotten all of the reveals and then something totally new is revealed and it's like a whole new world opening up!I'm still not the biggest fan of the romance, but I don't think I will be at this point. It's kind of just there for me and I don't love that it's the main reason why Marguerite is doing what she's doing, but I guess I also like that her guy isn't someone she just met and that it's someone who's been in her life for a long time. There's just something about it that still feels like instalove for some reason, and I think it's the way it was all set up in the first book. I don't have a problem with instalove when it's executed well but I've just never been a fan of this relationship.The further development of the multiverse is fascinating! We get to know the same characters but in different dimensions and how their lives are different, as well as how one dimension may be affecting another. Things dig way deeper in this book and the plot was even more fascinating!I'm still not tooootally in love like I had hoped to be but these books are proving to be very enjoyable and I'm glad I'm reading them back-to-back-to-back so I'm able to soak everything in and not have a year in between each book!
Marguerite Caine is a perfect traveler - able to travel between alternate dimensions using the Firebird while being aware of her real self as well as the self of the Marguerite she is occupying in the dimension she is in. Perfect travelers are rare and powerful and Wyatt Conley will do whatever he can to get Marguerite on his side. His latest attempt involves splintering the soul of the love of Marguerite's life Paul Markov. Marguerite will attempt to save Paul's soul but to do so will hurt not only her parents but her friend Theo Beck. Still Marguerite will do what she can but the cost will be far deeper than she realizes.I devoured “A Thousand Pieces of You”, the first book in Claudia Gray’s Firebird trilogy - I was immediately caught up in the story as Marguerite traveled from dimension to dimension - and was eager to read the sequel “Ten Thousand Skies Above You”. Truthfully, it took me a bit longer to get into this book at first as it felt a bit repetitive. However, halfway through the book - around the time Marguerite began to learn the repercussions of actions she took while in other bodies - I became hooked again and couldn’t stop reading until I got to the end of the book. Each dimension Gray has created is very interesting, at times heartbreaking, and I was left at times wanting to know what happened to the Marguerite, Paul, or Theo left behind in certain dimensions. Speaking of Marguerite, Paul, or Theo - love triangles in books can be a bit frustrating for me but I love the twist Gray puts on the love triangle as each Marguerite, Theo, and Paul are different in each dimension. There are some nice twists here and makes for some interesting thoughts about soulmates. To be sure, the travel between dimensions can be confusing at times (it is best not to think too much about it) but there are a few nifty surprises in this book. Gray ends the book on one heck of a cliffhanger and I can't wait to read the next book to see what happens to Marguerite.“Ten Thousand Skies Above You” is another nicely done young adult novel by Claudia Gray.
#2 in the Firebird trilogy.This one was not as predictable as A Thousand Pieces of you; each universe Marguerite jumped into was a nice surprise. But I also enjoyed this one a little less, because it was fairly heavy on the teenage angst. This wasn't all romance related, centering more on the ethics involved in possessing others' lives. In the first book, the heroine could have been any age, really. But in this one M definitely comes across as younger, even more so than her reputed 18 years; a lot of her emotional learning seemed pretty basic. So I could have done without certain sections, but it was still an easy-flow read.It did end in a cliffhanger, something I despise, but since I'm only now reading the series, at least I don't have to wait for resolution. Starting the third and last book now.Recommended.
