The fate of the multiverse rests in Marguerite’s hands in the final instalment of the Firebird trilogy by New York Times bestselling author Claudia Gray.
Ever since she used the Firebird, her parent’s invention, to cross through alternate dimensions, Marguerite has been at the centre 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.

I loved A Million Worlds with you, a cracking conclusion to the Firebird trilogy. After the lacklustre start in the first book everything comes together.
The mythology of the world created in the book continues to develop. Marguerite learns that using the Firebird to travel has quite dark consequences. She learns more about Conley’s diabolical plans and come face to face with dark aspects of herself. She also learns the true horrors of someone’s soul being splintered after excessive travelling.
So much happens in this book, much of it crazy. There is happiness, sorrow, life, death, grief and almost everything in between. You need some hankies, chocolate and a teddy to hug to read this one. The complexities of using the Firebird to travel got a bit confusing at times but this doesn’t affect the enjoyment of the book.
I like the way the book ended. It’s really well written.
Only two niggles, it’s really irritating that Marguerite calls her dark self, Wicked. This annoyed me for some reason. Also, some of the names given to the different dimensions are twee such as Warverse.
