I skipped the usual Top Ten Tuesday to do a “Waiting on Wednesday” post, hosting by Breaking the Spine, where you spotlight a book/series you’re eagerly waiting on. (That, and I wasn’t enthused about the TTT topic which was Halloween-related. I don’t read mysteries or thrillers or “spooky” reads so it felt weird to try to come up with something. XD)
First, let’s take a look at how gorgeous the covers are for this entire series! ❤
I love the watercolor effect and the contrast of two different worlds on each cover.
I met Claudia back in April at the North Texas Teen Book Festival. Told her I loved the cover of the final book. She then proceeded to tell me that I looked familiar but then I said it might be because I was at a panel she was in. XD Haha.
All that to say I got the first two book signed. 🙂
Sci-fi isn’t my go-to genre, even in YA but despite that, I’ve read a slew of sci-fi books that I’ve fallen in love with, the Firebird trilogy was no exception.
The final book in the trilogy, A Million Worlds with You releases next week, November 1! Here’s the synopsis (from Goodreads):
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.
I found the multiple dimensions interesting, and I really enjoyed how we even kept a small slice of historical fiction in the first and second books. Initially, I wasn’t enthralled at the beginning but I found that once the pacing of the book picked up, I enjoyed it. I’m excited to see how the final book will play out. I hope that once this book releases, Gray will go on tour and maybe she’ll be around me so I can get the book signed! (Fat chance, but you never know. :P)
