From Goodreads:

Every Day meets Cloud Atlas in this heart-racing, space- and time-bending, epic new trilogy from New York Times bestselling author Claudia Gray.

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.

A Thousand Pieces of You explores a reality where we witness the countless other lives we might lead in an amazingly intricate multiverse, and ask whether, amid infinite possibilities, one love can endure.

My Review:

A Winner! This novel will keep you guessing. There is a satisfying ending, and you’ll want to read the next book in the trilogy. A perfect combo of science fiction, contemporary, romance, intrigue.

A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

Mysterious. Captivating. Intriguing. Suspenseful. Imaginative.
Travel to alternate universes. Your life. Different variations. I’m hooked.
Scientists. A murderer? Who are you? Love. Death. Second chances.

Things I loved about this novel:
1. The possibility of multiple universes. What if we’re living our lives simultaneously in different universes without any knowledge of these different lives, but then be able to jump into that life and see loved ones etc? – what an awesome concept!
2. The idea of learning from yourself in different universes – so cool.
3. The science/mathematics behind the idea. It’s not so complex that people can’t grasp what’s going on.
4. Who is real and who leaped into that universe? Mystery and intrigue.
5. I love the idea you’re not quite sure who to trust an a particular moment.
6. Romance is sweet.
7. The Firebirds. They allow people to travel from one universe to another. Cool name, cool idea.
8. Good versus evil. When does science and corporate interest go too far?
9. My favorite character by far is Paul – geek hotness!
10. The ending. You’ll feel satisfied with it and still want more!

Overall, this is a fantastic beginning to a new trilogy that will keep readers guessing. A perfect combo of science fiction, contemporary, romance, intrigue. Claudia Gray has a winner.

Thank you so much to the publisher for the ARC review copy.
