"Marguerite Caine’s physicist parents are known for their radical scientific achievements. Their most astonishing invention: the Firebird, which allows users to jump into parallel universes, some vastly altered from our own. But when Marguerite’s father is murdered, the killer—her parent’s handsome and enigmatic assistant Paul—escapes into another dimension before the law can touch him.

Marguerite can’t let the man who destroyed her family go free, and she races after Paul through different universes, where their lives entangle in increasingly familiar ways. With each encounter she begins to question Paul’s guilt—and her own heart. Soon she discovers the truth behind her father’s death is more sinister than she ever could have imagined.


I'm just going to start this review by saying how much I loved this book. It was such a gripping read from start to finish and I felt like I was engrossed from the very beginning. I think this may have something to do with the fact that you are literally thrown straight into the story then things are explained as the book progresses, which I really liked.

The world building in this book was incredible, from dimension to dimension each world she entred was so beautifully described, I could picture each world so vividly in my head. This made it so easy to follow which dimension she was in as well as being able to follow the characters and decipher which version of the character it was in each world.

Credit definitely needs to be given to Gray in weaving a love story so perfectly into the main plot of the book, I feel in so many books the love story is so overpowering and takes away from what the book is meant to be about. In this book however, in was prevalent throughout but it was done in a way that was just kind of a side note to the main plot.

The ending of this book was also superbly done. This book is going to be a trilogy but it could have almost been a standalone, I wasn't left with any unanswered questions at the end and think that the sequels will just add more to the series rather than making the first book make sense like in some series. Overall, I loved this book and think I NEED the second and third book now.

Have you read this book?
If so, what did you think?
