A million universes. A million dangers. One destiny.
The fate of the multiverse rests in Marguerite Caine’s hands. Marguerite has been at the center of a cross-dimensional feud since she first traveled to another universe using her parents’ invention, the Firebird. Only now has she learned the true plans of the evil Triad Corporation—and that those plans could spell doom for dozens or hundreds of universes, each facing total annihilation.
Paul Markov has always been at Marguerite’s side, but Triad’s last attack has left him a changed man—angry and shadowed by tragedy. He struggles to overcome the damage done to him, but despite Marguerite’s efforts to help, Paul may never be the same again.
So it’s up to Marguerite alone to stop the destruction of the multiverse. Billions of lives are at stake. The risks have never been higher. And Triad has unleashed its ultimate weapon: another dimension’s Marguerite—wicked, psychologically twisted, and always one step ahead.
In the epic conclusion to Claudia Gray’s Firebird trilogy, fate and family will be questioned, loves will be won and lost, and the multiverse will be forever changed. It’s a battle of the Marguerites . . . and only one can win.
This conclusion to the Firebird series picked up right after the cliffhanger of the second book and jumped right into the action. This whole series has been a favourite of mine since the first book and the last one was highly anticipated. I couldn’t wait to see how everything would wrap up and this was such a great conclusion to a great series.
Marguerite was struggling in this book with the idea of an evil version of herself and if she had the potential for such evil. It was something she fought with in the previous two books but with other people, first Theo then Paul. I loved seeing her struggle with the same thing she judged the two boys over previously. She had to outsmart the evil Marguerite, Conley, and find a way to protect all the versions of Marguerite and their universes.
One of my favourite things about this series was getting to see all the different universes where Marguerite kept meeting up with Paul and Theo. Their fates seemed to intertwine in every universe, just in different ways. I was always waiting to see how they would find each other each time. I loved their dynamic between the three of them.
The action was really fast-paced without getting too rushed. There were a few times I had to force myself to slow down my reading speed because I was worried about missing key clues in all the science time travel talk but overall, I felt I had a good grasp on the technology and how it worked. Everything felt wrapped up in a satisfying way and it is definitely on the list of my favourite series.
