Ever since she used the Firebird, her parents’ invention, to cross into alternate dimensions, Marguerite has caught the attention of enemies who will do anything to force her into helping them dominate the multiverse—even hurting the people she loves. She resists until her boyfriend, Paul, is attacked and his consciousness scattered across multiple dimensions.
Marguerite has no choice but to search for each splinter of Paul’s soul. The hunt sends her racing through a war-torn San Francisco, the criminal underworld of New York City, and a glittering Paris where another Marguerite hides a shocking secret. Each world brings Marguerite one step closer to rescuing Paul. But with each trial she faces, she begins to question the destiny she thought they shared.
The second book in the Firebird trilogy, Ten Thousand Skies Above You features Claudia Gray’s lush, romantic language and smart, exciting action, and will have readers clamoring for the next book.
About the Book
Title: A THOUSAND PIECES OF YOU
Author: Claudia Gray
Release Date: November 4, 2014
Formats: Hardcover, Paperback, eBook, audiobook
Every Day meets Cloud Atlas in this heart-racing, space- and time-bending, epic new trilogy from New York Times bestselling author Claudia Gray.
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.
Claudia Gray is a pseudonym. I would like to say that I chose another name so that no one would ever learn the links between my shadowy, dramatic past and the explosive secrets revealed through my characters. This would be a lie. In truth, I took a pseudonym simply because I thought it would be fun to choose my own name. (And it is.)
I write novels full-time, absolutely love it, and hope to be able to do this forever. My home is in New Orleans, is more than 100 years old, and is painted purple. In my free time I read, travel, hike, cook and listen to music. You can keep up with my latest releases, thoughts on writing and various pop-culture musings via Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, Goodreads or (of course) my own home page.
If you want to contact me, you can email me, but your best bet is probably to Tweet me. I don’t do follows on Twitter, but I follow everyone back on Tumblr, Pinterest and Goodreads.
PLEASE WELCOME CLAUDIA TO BOOKHOUNDS
- What is on your nightstand?
Right now I’m in Lisbon, Portugal, so I’ve got my travel sleep mask, a leg brace (twisted my knee at Texas Teen Book Fest) and my e-reader. While I prefer paper books, e-readers are a godsend on long trips!
- What author would you totally fan?
Honestly, I would completely lose it if I ever met mystery writer Jacqueline Winspear. I’m obsessed with her Maisie Dobbs series. On the YA side, were I ever to meet Suzanne Collins, you would be able to hear the shrieking around the world.
I’m not even adding JK Rowling because, let’s face it, the entire globe fangirls her. And rightly so.
- What makes you cringe?
Getting a seat in a restaurant that exposes my back to the door. I have no idea why this drives me up the wall, but it does. Maybe I was assassinated in a past life or something.
- So, um, what about that YA Star Wars book? How did that happen? (excuse me, but SQUEE!)
LOST STARS! Well, I already knew one of the editors who works at Lucasfilm, though I had no idea of our ever working together on a Star Wars book. But when the head honchos decided they wanted a YA book, she suggested me as someone who would love to do it. Of course, when I got the email, I was thrilled! To my surprise, Lucasfilm didn’t dictate the story—they really let me come up with the characters and story on my own. The outline had to pass approval, but it did, and now that book is out in the world at last. Working on that one was so much fun.
- Do you obsessively plot out each point or just go with the flow?
I’m a plotter. If I don’t know where I’m headed, how do I know it’s going to be worth the trip? That said, no amount of plotting prevents you from needing to improvise here and there. There’s always enough surprise in the meat of a scene to ever keep me from feeling bored.
ALSO, PLEASE WELCOME CLAUDIA’S ADORABLE DOG – Pierre!
