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.

Love triangle alert! This book has such a unique way of blending romance and sci-fi. Imagine you could travel to other "dimensions" where you could live out what "you" would live out, in that time period?! This book doesn't cease to disappoint those who may look for time travel or quests, with driven ambitions for causes such as revenge. Marguerite, facing her father's death, wants to find the murderer and avenge him. But what if everything she was told were lies? Readers will long to find the answers with the protagonist herself, and dive into a conspiracy darker than what they ever imagined. 5/5 stars

I'm not gonna lie. I picked up this book because the cover is exceptionally beautiful. But the cover isn't the reason I rated this book so well. The story is exciting with never a dull moment. There are plot twists any avid mystery or thriller fan would appreciate. And the romance, while enjoyable, isn't all consuming like some fantastical YA tales. If you check out this title, be sure to check out the next two in the series with it, because you'll be eager to know what happens next.

This book was exciting and enjoyable read. Can't wait to read the 2nd installment of the Firebird collection.

Let me tell you: I fell hard for this book. Amazing world building, a fast-paced plot, and just enough romance to keep you burning through those pages.

WOW! I enjoyed this book a LOT! I couldn't put it down, I read it in 1 night! It was very fun to read and I very much enjoyed reading it. The cover was the real reason I grabbed it though. But I am HAPPY I DID!

At times, the concept of multiple universes can be hard to understand, however the author, Claudia Gray, does a wonderful job explaining its role in the story and how it is affecting the life of the characters. This book offers a new science fiction topic in a young adult genre and keeps you at the edge of your seat as the story develops.

I had NO idea what I was going to be reading when I put this on hold. I'd seen it all over Instagram though, and I have to say, I LOVED it <3

"... I feel something I've only ever felt once before - this dizzying sense like being at the edge of a cliff, both scared to death and yet feeling this inexplicable, insane urge to fling yourself into the sky."
