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.
So my constant about this series is the science fiction aspect of these novels doesn’t go over my head. In this book, that wasn’t true. To save the dimensions from being destroyed the gang – Marguerite, Paul, Theo and Marguerite’s parents – come up with an idea that uses their Firebirds to stabilize the dimension that they are in. The science of that drove me nuts. What also drove me nuts was that again there was constant going back and forth between past events and present events. Like for instance, when the book stars, Marguerite is hanging off a plane, which doesn’t make sense because the last I saw of her she was being hijacked by another dimension version of herself. It isn’t until chapter 2 that she explains what happened at the end of the last book and the inevitable plan her ‘wicked’ self comes up with.
Another thing that bugged me was the fact that even though there was a chance that multiple dimensions were about to be destroyed, Marguerite was very obsessed with making sure Paul was all right after his splintered soul was put back together. Spoiler alert he’s not and I thought for sure when he pushed her away I was going to be impressed because Marguerite was going to let him go. But then she doesn’t. She starts asking other dimension Paul’s what the key is to getting the old Paul back. *sigh* Don’t you think that there are more important things going on other than your love life? I mean, honestly…
Final Rating: 4 out of 5 stars. I liked the conclusion to this series, which is odd considering I don’t usually. The things I mentioned in this review were very minor and really didn’t take away from the overall plot. I still want to know what it was that Marguerite said that convinced Paul not to let her go.
Bookshelf worthy? Just imagine. Multiple dimensions with endless bookshelves.
