This story focuses on a young woman named Marguerite Caine, the daughter of two physicists working on an interdimensional travel project. Dr. and Professor Caine have created a device called the “Firebird”, which allows a traveler’s consciousness to leave the home dimension and leap into the life of a host in another dimension.

However, Marguerite’s life is quickly thrown into chaos when she is informed that her father has been killed because of his invention. Marguerite rushes into an interdimensional chase to find his killer before more harm can be done.

Along the journey, Marguerite must struggle with the idea of identity and the inherent goodness versus the inherent evilness of a person. She realizes that the different Marguerites from each dimension have little traces of her, and she wrestles with how to come to terms with the aspects of the other Marguerites’ personalities that she does not identify with.

She also must deal with betrayal and heartbreak for those that she loses along the way.

This first installment of the Firebird series by Claudia Gray keeps you on the edge of your seat, with twists and turns that one would never expect. Through her detailed writing, Gray takes the reader on a journey through alternate versions of our world, leaving the reader wanting more.
