‘The first time I traveled to another dimension, I intended to take a life. Now I’m trying to save one. But I can’t do that unless I save myself. At the moment, I’m running through the winding streets of a near-medieval Rome, trying not to get burned at the stake.’
– Ten Thousand Skies Above You, Claudia Gray – Chapter 1
Ten Thousand Skies Above You is the second book in the Firebird series by Claudia Gray. The story follows Marguerite Caine as she uses a device, called the Firebird, created by her parents to travel between alternative universes.
The sequel picks up not long after the end of the first installment, and trouble is just over the horizon. Marguerite is on a mission to save the man she loves after his soul was broken and put into multiple versions of himself. To save the man she loves Marguerite is torn between saving the man she loves and possibly ruining the lives of her family in other dimensions.
Reading the sequel straight after the first novel is one of the best feelings a reader can have. You don’t spend ages wanting to read the next one but you are unable to do so. However, now I have to wait until November until the third installment is released. And another great thing is when the sequel doesn’t let down your expectations from the first one. The story plot was interesting and I was excited to what would happen next, this series – so far – is a page turner. The characters were great and it was good to see them grow and see them experience new challenges to overcome.
Claudia Gray has done a wonderful job of creating new and exciting worlds to visit in the story and the small changes she makes were surprising but good. Not once did I get bored of reading this wonderful story and I am extremely excited for the third book.
This is defiantly a series that many people will enjoy.
