I love sci-fi but alternate worlds never really grabbed me until this series.
The Firebird series by Claudia Gray
All books released, own in hardcover, these beautiful covers match:)
The idea of alternate worlds, parallel worlds, whatever you want to call them, never really intrigued me in my science-fiction reading. I was all about space and living on other planets. Then I received an ARC of the first book in this series and gave it a chance. I was immediately hooked. I loved the way world hopping was handled, jumping into a different version of yourself instead of your body actually jumping. I also absolutely loved the family and the friendship dynamics of this series. And they just got better as it went along.
Favourite character: Theo. I have a huge soft spot for a guy with a great sense of humour, and when that guy is willing to fight for the people he cares about like Theo was, I’m sold. The first time he called Paul his ‘little brother’, I knew he would be a favourite.
Favourite book: A Thousand Pieces of You. It’s hard to pick a favourite in this series so the first one that introduced me to the characters wins by a slim margin.
Reading status: All finished!
Author status: Auto-buy.
Next up for Claudia Gray: Book 2 of the Constellation series, Defy the Worlds, due out April 3rd 2018.
Question from this series: If you could jump into any version of yourself, what would you want to be?
Answer from this series: I’m not big on travel or adventure but if I could jump into a version of myself that lived in space, just for a day or two, I would definitely do it.
