Claudia Gray’s Firebird saga comes to a stunning conclusion in A Million Worlds With You, which sees the battle to save or control the multi-verse to its explosive finale.
A million universes. A million dangers. One destiny.
The fate of the multiverse rests in Marguerite Caine’s hands. Marguerite has been at the center of a cross-dimensional feud since she first traveled to another universe using her parents’ invention, the Firebird. Only now has she learned the true plans of the evil Triad Corporation—and that those plans could spell doom for dozens or hundreds of universes, each facing total annihilation.
Paul Markov has always been at Marguerite’s side, but Triad’s last attack has left him a changed man—angry and shadowed by tragedy. He struggles to overcome the damage done to him, but despite Marguerite’s efforts to help, Paul may never be the same again.
So it’s up to Marguerite alone to stop the destruction of the multiverse. Billions of lives are at stake. The risks have never been higher. And Triad has unleashed its ultimate weapon: another dimension’s Marguerite—wicked, psychologically twisted, and always one step ahead.
In the epic conclusion to Claudia Gray’s Firebird trilogy, fate and family will be questioned, loves will be won and lost, and the multiverse will be forever changed. It’s a battle of the Marguerites . . . and only one can win.
It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of Claudia Gray’s books (I love them all), and especially so with the Firebird series. I have loved every book in this series, and this third and final volume was no exception. From exquisite writing to a heart-wrenching romance to an intricately detailed plot, A Million Worlds With You was thrilling and satisfying. Here are my top 4 reasons why:
1. Ungh. Paul & Marguerite. I ship this couple so hard, you guys. And I know I’m not alone. (And let’s be honest; I’ve asked Claudia for a universe with a Paul all my own, too.) A Million Worlds With You puts this pair to the ultimate test, and there is tension and turmoil aplenty, and I spent the book rooting so hard for things to work out, and at every turn, there was some new conflict trying to tear them apart. Without spoiling anything too much, I’ll say this: the ultimate ending left me very satisfied.
2. So many worlds. This book sees Marguerite visit some of the worlds she’s been to before, but also discovering even more new universes — and once again, I am in awe of Claudia’s imagination in dreaming up these alternate realities. One of the things that has fascinated me about the Firebird series from the beginning, is seeing the different possible worlds — and A Million Worlds With You certainly delivers some surprising new ones.
3. Full circle. I can’t even imagine the plotting involved in this book, let alone this entire series. Claudia brings things full circle in A Million Worlds With You, looping in so many perfect little details from the first and second books, and bringing everything together in a way that is just brilliant and wonderful. There’s one scene in particular that just … agh, I don’t want to spoil anything … but let me just say, Marguerite finally gets a REALLY thorough understanding of how her other selves felt when she jumped into their universes.
4. Beautiful writing, beautiful storytelling, beautiful execution. From simple words, phrases, and descriptions, to the delicate way she tied together a sprawling trilogy. A Million Worlds With You is an exquisite book, and it’s thanks to Claudia’s exceptional writing and storytelling. Every part of this series, and this final book, are executed to perfection.
I could go on, but the gist is basically the same – I LOVE THIS BOOK. I know some readers have been waiting to dive into this series until the final book had been released — well, it’s here, so get on this one now. And for those of you who, like me, have anxiously been awaiting its arrival — I can simply say, if you feel even a fraction of the satisfaction I did after finishing this book, you will not be disappointed. Look for A Million Worlds With You in stores November 1st.
