Firebird ending

Marguerite faces a grim future, the Universe where she is evil has plans end other Universes. I cannot believe that this is the end, it seemed like yesterday that I have started reading A Thousand Pieces of You. Now I am saying good bye, time sure flies. Special thanks to my library for keeping all three books, I actually ordered this one in via them.

After finding out the ‘dastardly’ plans of Evil Mom and Dad, and realizing how far the Evil Marguerite is willing to go to please her parents, our heroine dashes off to prevent more disasters. It seemed hopeless, because Evil had a head start, and was determined to kill all of her, just out of spite.

Not only Marguerite had to stop her evil-self from wrecking havoc, she had to find a way to stop the madness. I will admit that the story is well crafted from the beginning. But I had hoped for an ending that did not feel rushed, it did by the way. Jumping from one Universe to another, it was fun seeing how different one Universe differs to another, purely by decision.

That is what this story is based upon, the multiverse. The belief that each major decision (not what you had for lunch) branches out into a different verse. Such as your mom and dad decided to get married, or if cockroaches decided to rule the world. I digress, but Firebird series is wonderfully unique in that way, utilizing a scientific theory to craft this beautiful romance story.

Litte Gripe

While I love how it ends, it was the process that made me a little … annoyed. In the end of everything, all the pain that Evil inflicted on different universes’ Marguerite, her ending is a little anticlimactic. Yes, I know that it is not the worse possible scenario, and I do feel sorry for her. But Evil is the ultimate villain, you can’t get any worse than making all the other ‘yous’ commit suicide. If she could fall off a cliff, that is ideal…

As the pages move nearer toward the end, the story rushes more and more. The focus becomes to the relationship between Marguerite and Paul, which is fine except there is a love triangle somewhere?

Verdict

I cannot complain, nor that I will. A Million Worlds With You is a romantic book in a teenage kind of way, how love can trump a lot of things. In the end, I wish that it wasn’t such an easy way out. Some struggling depicts growth, and having your growth taken away from your back is cheating.

Have you read it, what d0 you think?

  • Cute piccys. 🙂 I haven’t read these books but I want to read them. Ending books are always the hardest for me, but I’m glad you enjoyed it overall despite the niggles.

    • yeah..it’s a good ending. you should, but it’s not thaaaaaat great that I would recommend you to read asap

  • I am sorry the ending felt rushed and some thread anticlimactic. This is why I struggle to begin the final book in these type of trilogies..so worried I will be disappointed. I am glad you enjoyed it overall though.

    • at least it did not disappoint, even though it felt rushed. but maybe because I didn’t want it to end too

  • I absolutely love this series too Ailyn but haven’t found time to read the finale as yet with a few review copies to get through first. I always hesitate with finals though, they never seem as great as what we’re expecting. Although it’s a little anticlimactic, it still sounds pretty entertaining and looking forward to reading it soon. I actually just finished book one in her new series, Defy The Stars and it was incredible! Wonderful review Ailyn, really enjoyed it <3

    P.S. The little ones are adorable!

    • haha little ones are adorable monsters who steal my precious time.
      the finale was a little disappointing, but it is still a good closure to a wonderful series

  • I haven’t read this series, but although there were a few things that annoyed you, it still sounds like a great read!

    • it is still a good read . worth trying
