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.
Rating 3.8/5 stars
Tragically this has second book syndrome it was more cliche, the love triangle more prominent and just not as unique and good as the first book. The first chapters kept recapping the events of the first book I had just read it I didn’t need the reminders so it was a little annoying, and made it longer to get immersed in the story. My big issue was Margaret’s inability to realize that her and Paul aren’t destined to be together in every dimension. There’s a dimension for every possibility so it makes total sense that there would be multiple dimensions where they weren’t together as the daughter of the inventors of the firebird she should have understood that.
There was a lot of common YA sequel tropes the characters getting separated, the main character having doubts about her relationship more angst. I did find most of the normal YA topees more interesting and the reasons for them made more sense then normal. It was hard to keep up with all the different versions of the characters and there was a few other miner quibbles. We were given a lot of answers but it still left me with a lot of questions there was a lot of reveals that made the last one hundred pages really good. Hopefully the third and last book gives me a satisfying conclusion so far I’ve really enjoyed this trilogy it’s very romantic, Paul is one of the best YA boyfriends ever. And it’s been fun to read about all the different dimensions.
