Hope you enjoy!
Marguerite Caine’s physicist parents are known for their groundbreaking achievements. Their most astonishing invention, called the Firebird, allows users to jump into multiple universes—and promises to revolutionize science forever. But then Marguerite’s father is murdered, and the killer—her parent’s handsome, enigmatic assistant Paul— escapes into another dimension before the law can touch him.
Marguerite refuses to let the man who destroyed her family go free. So she races after Paul through different universes, always leaping into another version of herself. But she also meets alternate versions of the people she knows—including Paul, whose life entangles with hers in increasingly familiar ways. Before long she begins to question Paul’s guilt—as well as her own heart. And soon she discovers the truth behind her father’s death is far more sinister than she expected.
📚 BOOK REVIEW 📚
As part of the PopSugar Reading Challenge 2016
A sci-fi novel; ‘A Thousand Pieces of You’ by Claudia Gray
“Every form of art is another way of seeing the world. Another perspective, another window. And science—that’s the most spectacular window of all. You can see the entire universe from there.”
I have to be honest – going into this book, I was expecting another ‘Divergent’ or ‘Hunger Games’ where our leading lady is madly in love and therefore cannot think straight. This kind of has that element, except the main focus of love is her father.
Marguerite is the daughter of two genius physicists who have created a dimension hopping device called the ‘Firebird’. When there is an accident involving her father; Henry, Marguerite then starts a journey through new dimensions in order to find those responsible.
Yes, there is a romantic aspect. And yes, because it’s YA fiction, there are two men (who of course are gorgeous) who are madly in love with our lead. Surprise! Thankfully it’s not written Twilight-esque where nothing else matters in the world except loving these two. She has her head screwed on and fights for what is right.
With all this said – I certainly enjoyed this book. Already getting started in the follow up ‘Ten Thousand Skies Above You’…there are definitely unanswered questions from the first offering which I’m hoping will follow into the second.
