Publisher's Summary

In this stunning sequel to A Thousand Pieces of You by New York Times best-selling author Claudia Gray, Marguerite must race through various dimensions in a desperate attempt to save the boy she loves.

Ever since she used the Firebird, her parents' invention, to cross through to alternate dimensions, Marguerite has caught the attention of enemies who will do anything to force her into helping them dominate the multiverse - even hurt the people she loves. She resists until her boyfriend, Paul, is attacked, and his consciousness is scattered across multiple dimensions. 

The hunt for each splinter of Paul's soul sends Marguerite racing through a war-torn San Francisco, the criminal underworld of New York City, and a glittering Paris, where another Marguerite hides a shocking secret. 

Each dimension brings Marguerite one step closer to rescuing Paul. But with every trial she faces, she begins to question the one constant she's found between the worlds: their love for each other.

Even Better Than The First!

More of this review and others at: Whimsically Bookish

WHY has it taken me two years to read this?! Oh... yeah, right, I had a baby in 2015. I missed out on a ton of good books that year. But still! Just to do a simple recap, I reread (listened) to the first book in this series (you can find my original review here) last week and finished this book today and I was not disappointed!

First off, let me just say that Tavia Gilbert is the BEST narrator. Ever. You can argue with me, but you'd be wrong. If you listen to audiobooks like I do, you know that a narrator can either make or a break a book that you listen to. Well, Tavia Gilbert does such a phenomenal job in this series I completely forget that I'm listening to only one person (or that I'm actually listening to anyone at all- most of the time I'm too completely absorbed in the story). Basically, she deserves an Oscar.

Moving on... sometimes I'm afraid to read the second book in a series because I'm usually terrified that there is no way it will be as good as the first one. We all know it happens sometimes. But I'm happy to tell you that Ten Thousand Skies Above You held it's on and was just as amazing (if not more so) than the first novel! I don't know how Claudia Gray does it, but she has created this amazing world that should be too complicated for someone to understand (we're talking a gazillion dimensions here), but at no point was I ever confused as to what was going on or felt lost. She covers everything so smoothly it just keeps you turning the pages (or in my case never hitting stop on my phone).

The world(s) building is amazing, the characters unforgettable... literally everything I want and more in a book this series has and that's why it's made its way to my favorites shelf.

Second book not as good

This book was predictable up until the last few chapters then came a brief bright light as the it sank as the too predictable ending came. Only to dangle the next book in front of us that I will not read or listen.
Thankfully this author keeps us from gratuitous sex, language, and violence.

Excellent Continuation

This was a great second novel in the series. While I enjoyed the first book in the series more, this is still a well-written and thrilling story. The narration also continues to be fantastic!

Fun story but wish there was a male narrator for the men!

I like the story a lot but really don't like the narrator's voice for the male characters. It feels very forced and takes me out of the story. Get a male narrator!!!!!!

Great Sequel

This book was just as captivating as the first. Each character stays true to themselves and it's still unpredictable. The narrator didn't do as many accents as the first book but it was still a great performance. Definitely worth the credit.

A good listen

good narrator, I found her believable. the story just didn't grab me as much as it did with the previous book. There was a lot of jumping around at the beginning establishing the story and filling you in. but I found it a bit distracting.
towards the end I began to get into it a bit more as she got to the twist and established the next book I think the third book will be a lot more interesting. but I did enjoy it overall ^^

The story is fine but I hate the protagonist

I loved this series when I was a teenager, reading it again as an young adult brought some new perspective. The protagonist is selfish, self centered and unbearable. She makes stupid assumptions with surface level information and is constantly running away from her problem and problems SHE CREATED.

Some spoilers ahead here, when Paul shot Theo, why is SHE the one that needs to run and hide in a luxurious life of a literal princess when Theo is the one that got shot?? Sure it's heartbreaking to find out the guy you love is also a remourseless murderer, but there to abandon the friend that tried to protect you (twice mind you) but got his leg blasted instead only to feel sorry for yourself? No. Just no. Not to mention knowing that while occupying the body of her other self, the other self retains memory of her controlling their body, assuming that whatever she has decided is also what they want? Ugh. It's honestly infuriating to listen to the last 4 hours of this book. Like uwu something terrible happened to ME even though it was my friend that got shot in front of my face, instead of comforting him I'm gonna run away to live a princess life and pretend to forget that Paul's soul is at stake and Theo's cure. Oh and I got this me PREGNANT BECAUSE I MADE THE DECISION TO HAVE UNPROTECTED SEX BUT THATS OKAY CUS I JUST KNOW ITS WHAT THIS ME WOULD WANT TO. I HATE HER.

Just as good as the first!

Enjoyable and unique story, balancing interesting concepts with an almost teen-drama/romance story, but without being too soppy.
