Ten thousand worlds. Ten thousand enemies. One love.
Marguerite Caine has done the impossible, traveling to alternate dimensions with the Firebird—the brilliant invention of her parents, her boyfriend, Paul, and their friend Theo. But she has also caught the attention of enemies willing to kidnap, blackmail, and even kill to use the Firebird for themselves.
When Paul's soul is splintered into four pieces—pieces that are trapped within Pauls in other dimensions—Marguerite will do anything, and travel anywhere, to save him. But the price of his safe return is steep. If she doesn't sabotage her parents in multiple universes, Paul will be lost forever.
Unwilling to sacrifice her family, Marguerite enlists the brilliant Theo to help. The two forge a plan to save Paul and the Firebird, but succeeding means outsmarting a genius and risking not only their lives but also the lives of their counterparts in every other dimension.
Their mission takes them to the most dangerous universes yet: a war-torn San Francisco, the criminal underworld of New York City, and a glittering Paris where another Marguerite hides a shocking secret. Each leap brings Marguerite closer to saving Paul—but her journey reveals dark truths that lead her to doubt the one constant she's found between the worlds: their love for each other.
Claudia Gray is the pseudonym of New Orleans-based writer Amy Vincent, the author of the New York Times bestselling Evernight series. She has worked as a lawyer, a journalist, a disc jockey, and an extremely poor waitress. Her grandparents´ copy of Mysteries of the Unexplained is probably the genesis of her fascination with most things mysterious and/or inexplicable.

I have absolutely no idea. But I am glad I finally came around to reading it. After Marguerite has successfully found her father and brought him back home in "A Thousand Pieces of You" everything could be just fine. But it isn't. Some people have no scruples in achieving their goals and choose our heroine's boyfriend Paul to be their next victim: His soul is splintered and trapped in four different dimensions. In order to unlock the coordinates to those pieces and rescue him, Marguerite now has to do the enemy's dirty work... Intriguing, fast-paced and at times heart-breaking are some of the words I'd use to describe "Ten Thousand Skies Above You". This sequel is in no way inferior to its predecessor and leaves you wanting for more. I loved reading about all these different worlds and versions of the people I was introduced to in the first book of the series. Furthermore, it's interesting to see how meeting these alternate selves lets Marguerite learn more about herself and the people around her. I absolutely enjoyed reading "Ten Thousand Skies Above You" and recommend this series to everybody who enjoys exciting sci-fi-reads with a lot of heart.
