Lush descriptions, masterful storytelling, and deeply engaging characters await readers in the world of Claudia Gray’s Firebird Trilogy. What began as a majestic and remarkable love story across the multi-verse in A Thousand Pieces of You becomes a truly epic saga about love, life, and freedom with the sequel, Ten Thousand Skies Above You.
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.
Gray is the queen of writing about seemingly impossible relationships, and she does so here with aplomb as we dive further into the love between Marguerite and Paul — and the many complexities of loving someone and their multi-verse counterparts. Questions of fate and destiny come heavily into play, as Marguerite is forced to face some hard truths and question her beliefs — all while racing through the multiverse in search of her lover’s splintered soul, and answers to defeating her enemies.
The stakes are higher than ever in this second book, and the action never falters. There is no compromising here, with Gray raising the stakes higher than ever with Ten Thousand Skies Above You — playing off everything she established in the first book, and building a stronger foundation for what I can only imagine will be a truly breathtaking and monumental finale in the third book.
Readers will eagerly race alongside Marguerite as she bounces from world to world — and if they’re anything like me, will also cry out audibly at the agonizing cliff-hanger ending! But don’t let that deter you — this book is worth it.
Ten Thousand Skies Above You is in stores now.
Claudia Gray is a pseudonym. I would like to say that I chose another name so that no one would ever learn the links between my shadowy, dramatic past and the explosive secrets revealed through my characters. This would be a lie. In truth, I took a pseudonym simply because I thought it would be fun to choose my own name. (And it is.)
I write novels full-time, absolutely love it, and hope to be able to do this forever. My home is in New Orleans, is more than 100 years old, and is painted purple. In my free time I read, travel, hike, cook and listen to music. You can keep up with my latest releases, thoughts on writing and various pop-culture musings via Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, Goodreads or (of course) my own home page.
If you want to contact me, you can email me, but your best bet is probably to Tweet me. I don’t do follows on Twitter, but I follow everyone back on Tumblr, Pinterest and Goodreads.
