This book had such potential. The premise was interesting and unusual and the characters are so vibrant, they breathe. But somehow, Claudia Gray managed to muck it up.

The way I see it this book had two big, albeit related, issues. The first is the nauseating romantic subplot Gray subjects us to. The second is that the book has some real pacing issues.

I'll start with the pacing issues by giving a rough overview of the book. The first hundred pages or so are jam packed with plot. Gray creates an entire world and all the characters inside it (well technically infinite worlds because multiverse) while simultaneously moving the plot forward. It was impressive. In the next hundred pages, however, the plot basically comes to a standstill and just consists of useless romantic subplot.

There is a clear reason for this kind of whiplash writing: this is the first book in a trilogy. Gray is obviously trying really hard to have enough material to justify three books. It doesn't. If you trimmed all the fat, the entire trilogy could fit into one book barely larger than this one (the fat being unnecessary romance).

Which brings us into the second great failing of this book. The protagonist is a teenage girl and it reads like it (despite the author being, I checked, not a teenage girl). No matter what happens (and if you've read the blurb you know her father dies) she's still thinking about boys. Gray writes romance clumsily and boringly and (not a spoiler at all) sets up a formulaic love triangle in this book to be realized in the sequels.

It's unfortunate, because I'm a sucker for multidimensional fiction, and honestly the plot is pretty amazing. I wish I could say I'll read the sequel, but it's clear the sickeningly gooey romance is here to stay, so I'd rather not waste my time.

I don't understand the reviews penalizing the book for being a romance because the summary sold it as a romance. It was exactly what I thought it'd be after I read the summary: Multi-dimensional love story between a woman seeking revenge for her father's death and falsely believing the love interest murdered him, only to slowly fall in love with the guy and vice versa.

I enjoyed the book, but at the same time, it feels like a fairly solid 3 star book. It's a lot of fun and intriguing, but it felt a bit predictable and convenient at times. It took a bit to connect with the characters, about 40% into the book to start rooting for the main couple of Marguerite and Paul and I felt a bit bad for Theo after awhile. I wished it delved more into the sci-fi, whodunit, mystery plot, as I first thought this would be a romance suspense/whodunit, but it's more so a romance historical/sci-fi/alternate history depending on what dimension everyone hopped into. The historical dimension was was so luscious like a costume drama, but I felt it lasted a bit too long. I could have read a novel about just that one dimension, but as a subplot, it lasted way too long, imho.

It's a good book if you're in a reading slump and have been deceived by good summaries only to put the book down after the first few chapters fell apart. I have a feeling it'll be the type of book I forget about as soon as I finish it, but it's entertaining while being read. ( )

very predictable..
I was looking forward to read more about parallel universe, not some cheesy romance..
not my cup of tea but will still recommend to others..
rated 2/5 but that cover is nice, so 3/5.. ( )

If I hadn't been listening to an audio book, I'm not sure I would have continued reading this. No fault of the author, it just wasn't very interesting to me, a lot of the science went over my head. By the end I did enjoy the characters and the twists and turns of the story line and only anticipated a few things, right before it was revealed. I may or may not look into future books in this series. But I would recommend it to anyone who has a preference for a little sci-fi. ( )

This book is heavy with science information that pretty well explains it, but sometimes it felt like an info dump.

It's not a time travel book but a dimensional travel book so there are things take place in the same times but different worlds.

The narrator gets to show off her different accents in the audiobook. She does British, she does Russian, and she does American accents.

I listened to about half of this book on audio before I had to turn it back in. Then I borrowed the Kindle version to finish it.

As a romance, I feel like this was kind of weak. Maybe that's because I was drawn to the side of the triangle that Megan didn't choose. I did see a plot issue with the Firebirds. One is taken away, then it's later given back. I thought that they were supposed to be unnoticed by others; wouldn't that person who took it have forgotten about it, and couldn't, or wouldn’t, have remembered to give it back? I do think the girls will like this one, so I'll buy it for them but I don't think that I'll be reading the second one myself. ( )
