Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 10 Up—This follow-up to A Thousand Pieces of You (HarperCollins, 2014) blends elements of science fiction, time travel, and romance. Eighteen-year-old Marguerite and her 20-something friend Theo travel to alternate realities including Renaissance Rome, an alternative San Francisco at war, and the futuristic "home office" of the evil Triad corporation to rescue fragments of the splintered soul of Marguerite's boyfriend, Paul. As she meets different versions of Paul, Theo, and her family, the heroine begins to question her earlier notions of destiny and of people's essential natures. The protagonist's journeys form a travelogue of sorts, and her descriptions of alternate Earth cities and the ways these settings have changed her loved ones' characters are the strongest parts of the book. The parallel worlds allow readers to wonder how different they would be if they lived in different circumstances. Explanations of the mechanics and limits of dimensional travel are skimpy and a bit forced, but that won't bother fans of the previous volume. Attractive characters, plenty of suspense and danger, and a cliff-hanger ending add to the story's appeal. The characters' age and some sexual situations make the book best suited for older teens. VERDICT Purchase where the first title is popular.—Beth Wright Redford, Richmond Elementary School Library, VT

TEN THOUSAND SKIES ABOVE YOU is a brilliant and amazing and riveting read. It is packed full of action, suspense, surprises, twists and turns. It will break your heart, then mend it, only to break it once more. It is the epitome of an epic adventure that spans multiple universes, that allows for an infinite number of outcomes, and that introduces a number of different versions of the characters readers have come to know and love or hate.

It is intense. It is thrilling. The endless possibilities are mind-boggling. The alternate dimensions are fascinating. The love story is heartrending. The ending is jaw-dropping.

When Paul doesn’t return from his trip into one of the other dimensions where he’d gone to try and find a way to help Theo, Marguerite is willing to do whatever it takes to find him and bring him back. Even if it means defying her parents and giving their enemy, Wyatt Conley, whatever he wants in exchange for Paul’s return.

With Paul’s soul splintered into four pieces and hidden across multiple universes, she’ll be forced to hurt and betray different versions of herself, her family, and those she cares most about, she’ll have to put herself at risk in each dimension to find him, and she’ll have to put her trust in Theo, if she has any hope of saving him.

Whatever she has to do, whatever guilt she’ll have to deal with, will be worth it. Because she could live with the fact that she helped Wyatt and the Triad, but she couldn’t live with herself if she didn’t try to rescue Paul.

Claudia Gray is the master of the multiverse. Her parallel worlds are so well-crafted. The different versions of her characters are interesting and intriguing. The way she makes their lives intertwine is captivating and exciting.

"I want you when is crazy, when it's frightening, even when it is impossible, because there's nothing within you that could hurt me half as much as not having you."

Boy did I love this book!
Traveling between different dimensions is even more dangerous then before, and Marg will do whatever it takes to save her family and the people she loves... even it it means going against them. No one is who they say they are, and you have to be sharp not to be deceived.

Marg has grown a lot in Ten Thousand Skies Above You. She seems more mature and responsible which I really liked. However her actions do have consequences that she must deal with, something that will question everything she ever believed. Can she save all the ones she love in every dimension?
I had all sort of feels when reading this book.
This is the kind of book that makes you feel a rollercoaster of emotions. You will need to take a break and put yourself back together before continuing living in the real world.

I have to admit it thou. This book didn't touch my heart the same way the first book has. I am pretty sure it is only because this book is a lot darker, mysterious and less romantic then I expected.
But I still love it. However Claudia makes up for the lack of romance with so much more info behind the firebird origins and why Marg is the key for everything.
So it still deserves 5 stars.
I am very curious to see how this series will end. Specially now that Meg is big trouble, and everyone is in dangerous.
Who will save her now?

I am still hoping for a happy ending for Meg and Paul...
Although I have grown to love Theo a little more in this book.
This is definitely a series worth reading.
The writing is still so very much beautiful!
:)

Wow, just wow. This book is one heck of a ride.TEN THOUSAND SKIES ABOVE YOU digs further into dimensional travel and all the complications and risks. There's so many ethical issues and risks they are taking, and this book really explores further into the implications of all that. I really enjoyed this deeper look and it kept me on the edge of my seat from the start until the very end. Not only are there big risks, but there's also emotional and personal aspects that get explore. The big question is whether we really all the same person a the core across the dimensions, or do our experiences shape us instead, making each version of us truly different? The ramifications of this question are really profound in this book, and it made for an incredible read.

I have to admit prior to starting I was just a bit hesitant. I wasn't quite sure what I was going to get as trilogies are tricky things. It seems you almost always either have the sophomoric slump in the second book or if the book manages to escape that normal trend then there's a doozy of a cliffhanger. And that latter is the case here. There's not even a hint of a slump here, as TEN THOUSAND SKIES ABOVE YOU is every bit as good as its predecessor, but the cliffhanger ending is insane. Not only are there massive game changing revelations in this book that would have made me desperate to get my hands on the next one, but the very ending events are nearly cruel when it comes to cliffhanger terms. I kept trying to get to the next page as I just couldn't believe it ended there. I'll be counting down the days until the next book releases.

TEN THOUSAND SKIES ABOVE YOU isn't just a must read, it's a drop everything you're doing, and run to the nearest bookstore to get your hands on it immediately read. Bravo!
