Gr 9 Up—In the thrilling conclusion to the trilogy, Marguerite Caine is in the middle of a cross-dimensional fight to save multiple universes from extinction. With the Firebird device that her parents created, Marguerite can travel among universes. However, she is becoming aware of the impact that traveling has on each dimension—and on herself. In a culmination of events begun in the previous volumes, Marguerite has discovered the evil plans of the Triad Corporation and is trying to catch those involved before destruction occurs. Paul, Marguerite's friend and love interest, has changed since his soul split in four, and he struggles with his dark side, pushing Marguerite away while also trying to assist her across the multiverse. With fast-paced action that starts from the first chapter, this title will draw readers into an enthralling chase across time and space. The plot cleverly connects many universes with multiple dimensions of personality, and the characters are intriguing, smart, layered, and independent. Although this offering can be read as a stand-alone, those who haven't read the first two novels will lack important context.
VERDICT Sci-fi fans are the obvious audience for this, but readers of all genres will enjoy the nonstop action and unique story.
