Ten Thousand Skies Above You
Firebird #2
Author: Claudia Gray
Release Date: November 3rd, 2015
Publisher: HarperTeen
Rating: 5 FIREbirds!

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.

You guys, I can't even with this cover. I mean look at it. It's beautiful. I want to hug the designer.

Okay, sorry I get a little crazy when it comes to awesome covers, let's get on to the review shall we?

The second book is literally a race against the clock. It is, if you can believe it, even more amazing and action-packed than the first book in the series A THOUSAND PIECES OF YOU! I flipped pages like a mad woman and had to force myself not to ship ahead, desperate to know what was next.  It's the kind of book that made me wish I was Dr. Spencer Reid from Criminal Minds, and could read at a lighting fast pace.

We will visit worlds Marguerite has been to before, and ones she has not.  Each one is amazing and I can't help but wonder at the fun Claudia Gray must have had being able to reinvent her story's world over and over with each page written. It's clear that her imagination is infinite not to mention spectacular, as you will see for yourself as Marguerite tumbles through dimensions searching for the broken and scattered pieces of Paul's soul. Yes, you read that correctly – the boy is broken like Voldermort's Horcruxes. Be still my heart, that poor guy. If Marguerite doesn't find them in time, well I don't even want to think about a plane of existence where that happens.

Even though I was so excited to read, and wished to be on the next page every second, I was so upset when I the last page came. Much like you be upset to find out I'm not giving you any more info on the book because it will spoil the whole thing. If you've not yet stared this series, you have to do that – A THOUSAND PIECES of you was my favorite book of last year, and TEN THOUSAND SKIES ABOVE YOU is my most anticipated sequel release of 2015
