Don't get me wrong: I love this series and still would recommend it to all interested readers. This book just proved itself to be unpromising. While reading, I felt like too much was happening at once, and our main character, Marguerite, was switching between too many worlds (or 'verses') too quickly. I wasn't able to determine what her role in this story was. Apparently it was to save the other versions of herself, but too much was happening and I was unable to really feel that. Instead, I just felt Claudia Gray attempting to ramble on and on, taking up 'space' in the book, instead of entertaining readers in a slow, blissful manner.
This series is really all about its gorgeous romance between Marguerite and Paul. In this novel, their romance felt very flawed (which is normal), but to the point that I stopped being interested because they faced TOO many problems. It seemed as if the characters were getting tired of each other (even though Marguerite attempted to tell herself that she is in love with Paul), and I myself got tired.
There were pros and positives in this story; I really liked the conclusion, and it really made me feel sad, knowing that this was the last time I would be able to read about these characters. I liked how we were able to see a relationship boost amongst Marguerite and her parents, especially in the other verses. I will truly miss this series, despite the lows of this finale.
A Million Worlds With You was disappointing in comparison to the other two novels in this series. It lacked depth and a faster pace that would keep me entertained for my entire reading experience. I constantly longed for more. Goodbye, Firebird series, I loved you.

The Triad is still out to destroy the multiverse and they have decided the best way to do this is take out all the other Marguerites in all the other parallel dimensions. The Triad is using the Marguerite known as “Wicked” to inhibit and kill the other Marguerites. That leaves our Marguerite with the task of running from dimension to dimension trying to stop Wicked. In each dimension Marguerite finds herself in a potentially life-threatening situation and has to escape out of it in order to prevent that dimension’s collapse.
In general Marguerite is visiting dimensions she’s already visited in previous books; I kind of missed the introduction of new and unique dimensions...this was my favorite part about this series. There is also a lot of uncertainty between Paul and Marguerite because of the splintering of Paul’s soul across multiple dimensions.
The above being said, I still really enjoyed how everything was so neatly wrapped up. I loved how people had to cooperate across dimensions to stop the Triad and how huge the whole thing gets. I also enjoyed the excitement and urgency whenever Marguerite jumped into another Marguerite and had to save her life.
Overall I enjoyed this series. It was incredibly creative and very intriguing to read. The whole series is well-written and engaging. I would recommend to those who enjoy books about science fiction and parallel dimensions.
With every new dimension that she travels her job gets harder and harder, Marguerite feels like the other evil of herself is always one step ahead and she needs to figure out what to do before she ends out killing billions of people, including herself.
I really enjoyed going back to this book and world and characters. Marguerite is an amazing character, she is someone that you befriend without even thinking about it. She isn't afraid to risk it all if it means to save the others around her. It was a really great conclusion to this trilogy, well done.
There is a lot of science involved in this series, but it is presented in such a way that it explains what it needs to without being anything like a lecture. It also is the perfect tool to create villains and heroes. The science behind travel between the multiverses is something that has lots of implications and applications, some with less positive ramifications.
This has been such a fantastic series, so beautiful. And I am so sad that the ride is over! This is a series I highly recommend for anyone who loves a thought-provoking, exciting read!
Sadly, I didn't really enjoy this one. There's quite a bit of loss in the first half, and while I could empathize with grief and rage, Marguerite just spends a lot of time feeling hopeless. As a reader, that's not how I want to spend my time. And the last part of the book feels really rushed, as if the author just threw a bunch of stuff out to be done with it.
Bottom line, my enjoyment went down with each book. I do recommend and will definitely reread the first, A Thousand Pieces of You, but I will probably treat it as a stand alone, and skip the last two books completely.
