Ten Thousand Skies Above You (Firebird #2) by Claudia Gray – Review

Ten Thousand Skies Above You (Firebird, #2)Publication Date:

November 3rd, 2015



Goodreads Synopsis:

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.


I don’t even know how to express my feelings about this book especially if I don’t want to spoil the first book to anyone. I loved A Thousand Pieces of You when I read it and I loved all the different dimensions aspect of the book but this one was so much better and with so many shocking moments that I don’t even know what to say about it. I still can’t understand why it took me so long to read Ten Thousand Skies Above You (who am I kidding, it was because of that cliffhanger).

I loved to be back to the universe that Claudia Gray created. I just love all the different universe Marguerite travels to and how different they are from each other. It’s just amazing to see so many different worlds in only one book and this is also something I really loved about A Thousand Pieces of You. I really liked the characters in this book. Sometimes I was a little bit frustrated with Marguerite because of some things she would say but I still love her and I think she’s an amazing character and she did have a great development through this book. Now can we talk about the fact that I’m 99.9% sure that my ship won’t be endgame by the end of next book? I like Paul and I did ship him with Marguerite in the first book but I might have changed my mind in this one because Theo is amazing and I love him and he deserves to be happy. Yeah, I’m totally shipping Marguerite with Theo right now. I loved these two together (this is making me think about a hilarious moment that happened in the beginning of the book. I couldn’t stop laughing about it and if you’ve read this book you know what I’m talking about XD).

I also loved where this book took us. A Thousand Pieces of You was amazing to introduce the story and the world but this one was even better with all the twists and by telling the real story behind the Firebird project. I spent most of the book thinking “Oh sh*t!! WTF did just happen here. I wasn’t expecting this”. Yep, this was my reaction most of the times. And that cliffhanger… can I have A Million Worlds with You now please?? How am I supposed to wait until November after this cliffhanger?? I need to know what happens next.

Overall, this was an amazing book. As I said before it was even better than the first book and I loved everything about it. If you haven’t read this one or haven’t started this series yet you should definitely do it because it’s an amazing series.


4.5 stars
