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.

Review:

It’s hard to describe all the feelings that I had for A Million Worlds with You. I’m leaning on content, but it just doesn’t seem to have that sipping on a cup of tea and sighing a satisfactory sigh feeling. And it doesn’t also have that omg that was epic, heart pounding feeling…or maybe it does. Just the latter. The epicness sometimes felt like it was dragged on and I think while I enjoyed exploring all the different multiverse and meeting the different Marguerites in each one, I found it difficult to keep up with all these possible outcomes sometimes. Especially when they all collided towards the end of the novel. Which the Doctor would be like omg time paradoxes are terrible and this girl is breaking every law there ever was and basically will never be my companion.

Anyways…I think I was really curious and anxious to see how Marguerite and Paul’s romance would wrap up after all the stuff that happened in Ten Thousand Skies Above You. Also, because I’m a huge Marguerite and Paul shipper after Russia happened. Because she and Theo had this incredible friendship chemistry between them that made you want to ship them. Paul is just quiet so you don’t know much about his interest, but in A Million Worlds with You he had some serious action and I loved how he was able to tell apart all the Marguerites. It was interesting to see the way Marguerite reacts to what the consequences of being in her other selves did after she left. Like if her other selves realize that it wasn’t their actions, but it was a different Margaret inhibiting their bodies for a while. I felt really bad that sometimes not all outcomes were what we expected especially concerning Theo. Despite disliking the love triangle in this series I can’t help but feel bad for Theo. He’s a good guy when he’s not going “rogue”

So, I was pretty satisfied with the outcome of the romance. After all Paul, Theo, and Marguerite has been through I liked that they get on with their normal lives. I think one of the reasons why I enjoyed the epilogue in this book was that we actually see everyone’s outcomes. I like knowing every characters’ fate as opposing to not knowing or just intentionally being ambiguous. I loved that all the romance between the Marguerites are also resolved and it’s funny to see the reaction of those different Marguerites reacting to the possible romances because as we learned from Ten Thousand Skies Above You not every multiverse you’ll end up with the same person as you originally had feelings for despite your fates keep overlapping.

If you aren’t a fan of this series at least get the books for their covers. They’re gorgeous and I wish I had poster sized version of them so I can hang them in my room.

  1. Agree with you, the cover was owesome. Great review, Jackie. 🙂

  2. oh this book sounds like a win especially if you like YA and I agree on the cover.

  3. The covers are gorgeous! I liked the second book better but I love Theo! I think the evil Theo was explored more in the series but the Theo in Marguerite’s universe was interesting.

    I listened to the audiobook for this one and surprisingly, I didn’t get lost in all multiverses. In fact, I wanted more of the evil Marguerite! She was just interesting!

  4. I don’t really know this series but I like Claudia Gray’s writing and I’m intrigued by the alternate universe stuff. And the idea of another evil version of someone- that’s pretty twisted. I might have to get these. 🙂

  5. I’m glad you enjoyed the book, despite not feeling totally content! And that the romance worked out nicely. I read book one and didn’t really like it, so I never finished the series. I’m glad the series was really good for you! Great review!

    Have a wonderful week, Jackie. =)

  6. I just finish One Thousand Pieces of You and I’m debating on whether to pick up the rest of the books in the series. I’ve heard amazing things about the last one but, the first book felt really slow for me. Glad you enjoyed it! And the covers are gorgeous indeed!
