A Thousand Pieces Of You (Firebird #1)
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.
A Thousand Pieces of You explores an amazingly intricate multi-universe where fate is unavoidable, the truth elusive, and love the greatest mystery of all.
Seriously, how beautiful is this cover!!! This was a total cover buy for me, I didn’t even read the back to know what it was about. When I did discover what the book was about I was a little skeptical as this isn’t usually my type of story and I was expecting something very science fictiony.
I ended up absolutely adoring this book, I loved everything about it. The world that Claudia Gray created was just incredible, I was very intrigued by the use of multiple dimensions and ended up really enjoying reading about them which I did not expect at all, I thought they would annoy me to no end. The whole story was wonderful, it had such a great mix of suspense, mystery, romance and a bit of humour.
The relationship formed in this story had a very unique and interesting beginning, I found this to be something very fascinating, I cannot wait to read more about it. I was kept on the edge of my seat (so to speak) for the entire book and was totally shocked when the plot twist hit, did not see it coming at all. I also liked the fact that the book wrapped pretty much everything up and didn’t leave a massive cliffhanger at the end. I’m not a huge fan of big cliffhangers, I like some suspense for the next book but not too much.
This book blew me away and it has totally opened my eyes to other types of books that I have always just dismissed. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
Rating: 5/5 stars
