Omslagtekst:
The fate of the multiverse rests in Marguerite’s hands in the final installment of the Firebird trilogy by New York Timesbestselling author Claudia Gray.

Ever since she used the Firebird, her parent’s invention, to cross through alternate dimensions, Marguerite has been at the center of a cross-dimensional feud. Now she has learned that the evil Triad Corporation plans to destroy hundreds of universes, using their ultimate weapon: another dimension’s Marguerite who is wicked, psychologically twisted, and always one step ahead.

Even though her boyfriend Paul has always been at Marguerite’s side, the Triad’s last attack has left him a changed man, and he may never be the same again. Marguerite alone must stop Triad and prevent the destruction of the multiverse. It’s a battle of the Marguerites . . . and only one can win.

In the epic conclusion to the sweeping series that kicked off with A Thousand Pieces of You, fate and family will be questioned, loves will be won and lost, and the multiverse will be forever changed.

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

Marguerite has no choice but to search for each splinter of Paul’s soul. The hunt sends her 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 world brings Marguerite one step closer to rescuing Paul. But with each trial she faces, she begins to question the destiny she thought they shared.

The second book in the Firebird trilogy, Ten Thousand Skies Above You features Claudia Gray’s lush, romantic language and smart, exciting action, and will have readers clamoring for the next book.

Showcase Sunday

ShowcaseHoi allemaal! Het is weer zondag, dus tijd voor een showcase! Ik heb een aantal mooie boeken om jullie te laten zien. En voorlopig is het de laatste, want mijn kast puilt uit, dus ik vond het tijd voor een nieuwe book buying ban (al is het volgende week wel boekenfestijn in Nieuwegein, dus ik moet even kijken of het lukt…)
Anyway, deze boeken zijn al binnen, dus deze kan ik jullie laten zien! Enjoy.

Showcase Sunday

ShowcaseWell, look at that! Eindelijk een nieuwe Showcase Sunday coverfoto! Kan ik dat ook weer van mijn to do lijst afhalen 🙂 Anyway, zoals jullie gemerkt hebben, doe ik mijn showcases niet meer iedere week. Dat komt omdat ik toch niet iedere week boeken koop (wel vaak, misschien moet ik mezelf eens gaan inhouden…) en dan heb ik niet zo veel te vertellen. En, een goed gevulde showcase is ook leuker dan wanneer ik maar één boek kan laten zien, vinden jullie ook niet?
Vandaag heb ik wel weer een stapel boeken voor jullie. Dus yay!

Omslagtekst:
Marguerite Caine’s physicist parents are known for their groundbreaking achievements. Their most astonishing invention, called the Firebird, allows users to jump into multiple universes—and promises to revolutionize science forever. But then Marguerite’s father is murdered, and the killer—her parent’s handsome, enigmatic assistant Paul— escapes into another dimension before the law can touch him.

Marguerite refuses to let the man who destroyed her family go free. So she races after Paul through different universes, always leaping into another version of herself. But she also meets alternate versions of the people she knows—including Paul, whose life entangles with hers in increasingly familiar ways. Before long she begins to question Paul’s guilt—as well as her own heart. And soon she discovers the truth behind her father’s death is far more sinister than she expected.
