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.
This cover takes my breath away. Seriously. The water colours are spectacular, the title is intriguing, and did you notice the reversed India-inspired cityline beneath the American cityline? I almost didn’t. If you’re going to judge a book by its cover, than this one is perfection.
And even if you’re not going to judge this book on appearances, doesn’t the description sound super freaking amazing? World-hopping? I’ll jump on that. I’m so sorry for that pun.
But to continue that thought, what I’m hoping is that the guilt of Paul is truly doubtful, and doesn’t become clouded simply because of her affection for him or his or her. The world-building I’m sure, is not going to be a problem, but I’m crossing my fingers that the murder case will be suspenseful and twisty and unpredictable. I’m confident though, that Claudia Gray will make A Thousand Pieces of You a stunner.
