Marguerite Caine's physicist parents are known for their groundbreaking achievements. Their most astonishing invention, called the Firebird, allows users to jump into multiple universes—and promises to revolutionize science forever. But then Marguerite's father is murdered, and the killer—her parent's handsome, enigmatic assistant Paul— escapes into another dimension before the law can touch him.

Marguerite refuses to let the man who destroyed her family go free. So she races after Paul through different universes, always leaping into another version of herself. But she also meets alternate versions of the people she knows—including Paul, whose life entangles with hers in increasingly familiar ways. Before long she begins to question Paul's guilt—as well as her own heart. And soon she discovers the truth behind her father's death is far more sinister than she expected.

It is always good to read a book that has elements of science in it and I actually mean science. Science has always been my favourite subject so to see the elements of that was brilliant.

This book is a whirlwind of emotions for me and I am right back where I began; not trusting characters.

Marguerite eventually becomes of those characters I just want to smack over the head; I can’t tell you otherwise it would spoil it but trust me you would feel the same. Overall, she is a good solid main characters but she has her flaws, a lot of main characters do.

But unfortunately my favourite character award for this book does not in-fact go to Marguerite, it goes to the one and only Paul Markov. Now he’s a good character, he’s the one everyone instantly blames everything on and I am a big believer of innocent before proven guilty so I kinda trusted him from the start. He is a good character in this story and one that will go along way.

I loved how the story flowed even though we were transported to these other ‘dimensions’ not once did it ever loose the flow of the story and that is a good thing when you are setting your story in different places.

This book was a brilliant start to a series and I am totally excited to see where this story goes.
