Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray Review WITH SPOILERS

Ten Thousand Skies Above You (Firebird, #2)

Overall, I would have to say that I enjoyed the first book more than this one. And it is not because this one it bad, only that so much was being explained and was happening in the first that I feel like this one is slightly lacking in those regards. I do think it makes up for it in character development though. We get to see how the characters have so many different sides in the different universes, and yet those sides are still a part of each of them in every universe. This book also explores some really cool dimensions. My favourite would have to be the underground of New York because I find that stuff so interesting and I think it had some of the more action-filled plot points in it. :)

I would definitely read this and continue on with the series. I think maybe by the end of the trilogy, this may end up being my least favourite of the three, but there are some major things that go on that you can't miss. And the ending is amazing, yet tormenting.


Things I Liked:
~The Conley romance. Not gonna lie, this weirded me out at first, but then as the book progresses, it made more and more sense and I love it. Not as much as I love Paul and Marguerite though... Again, there is great character development her for Conley that, at least for me, changes how I saw him.
~The deeper morality conflict. The initial conflict of entering and taking over somebody's body is definitely a big deal in the first book, but even more so here when we see more of how those actions have consequences on the other person's life when the traveler leaves. Especially with Marguerite. You will know what I mean when you finish...
~Marguerite's character development was really different now that I think about it. It wasn't typical in that we see aspects of her in her alternate versions' selves, and then how they are also in the main character Marguerite's.

Thanks for reading!
