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.
People who like their romance with a side of sci-fi and adventure.
I must admit I didn't start out liking A Thousand Pieces Of You. In fact, I started it several months ago only to put it back on the shelf. I'm so glad I gave it another chance, it was well worth it.
I feel like I should point out the fact that I don't like sci-fi....I mean cut and dry sci-fi. It bores me. So what bothered others about this book didn't bother me. Some readers were expecting more sci-fi and scientific explanations. Whereas I was looking for a romance with a sci-fi feel. I don't need explanations on how things work, if the author tells me the characters can fly then I believe them and I don't ask why or how.
The whole idea of dimensional travel is unique to me, so much so that I had to remind myself that they weren't just traveling back in forth in time but different realities. At the same time it was relatively easy to follow along with so I didn't have to spend a whole lot of time thinking about it.
It is my duty to warn you that there is a love triangle...of sorts...you'll see what I mean. However none of the love is instant, the characters have grown up, in a way, with each other so they have plenty of background to fall on.
While there were plenty of twists and turns that I had no idea were coming there was one fact that I guessed from the beginning and I'm so glad I was right! Nonetheless it was a nerve wracking journey to the end, and the end was just the beginning!
