You know how in YA novels sometimes you end up rolling your eyes because no one even thinks to just ask an adult? Well, Marguerite's parents are fantastic in any universe. It's one of the things I really like in this series because it's such a nice change to the distant, or awful, or dead (or all three at once!) parents in YA fiction. We hear a lot about how they meet in the series (and sometimes how they meet in other universes), but I'd kind of love to read more about them.
Marguerite faces a lot in this one; her ideas of fate are challenged again, an alternate version of herself is causing chaos, Paul's changed, and Triadverse Theo is back. Compared to the second book, she revises her opinions a lot through the course of the book, and grows as a character and I was very happy to see it. Granted, it does take her a long while, but she gets there.
Sweet, socially awkward people must be my type because Paul has been one of my favourite characters throughout this series. Even while he was dealing with a lot over the course of the books, and dealing with the aftermath of those events as well, he never speaks down on Marguerite. He does go through the whole 'you'll be better off without me' thing though, which is a pain, and while I understand where he's coming from it is completely aggravating and I did get sick of reading about it.
On the other hand... it's not like we got to read much about it. A heap of Paul's development happens off screen. Or in a cop-out dimension. As cute as it was, cop-out dimension was one of my least favourites, however the dimension in Chapter 21 is gold (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
Everything links up really well in this one, and alternate Marguerite (aka Wicked) is fun to read about. I like that she's awful and different to Marguerite so she has to challenge the way Marguerite looks at things. Marguerite also understands her which makes things much better in the terms of how Marguerite grows in the novels, too.
Unfortunately, the ending is a total cop-out (not to be confused with cop-out dimension). I feel like if people in one dimension were as determined as they were to take control or destroy multiple dimensions they wouldn't stop as quickly as they did. As much as they're supposed to reflect other characters in the novel, I really do feel like it wasn't enough. Especially with how far they had progressed in their goal too.
I love how family is a focus in this series. It's nice to have a YA series focus on family as well as everything else. Marguerite is surrounded by people who love her and appreciate her differences to them and it is lovely. I love how everyone encourages each other to explore their own ideas in this series, and I'd quite happily read about their everyday shenanigans.
The FIREBIRD trilogy isn't very sci-fi for sci-fi, and the rules of dimension travel seem to change a little bit every novel, but it's a fun and cute series with plenty of cliffhangers. Plus, multiple Pauls and Marguerite wanting to punch people in the face. What's not to love?
I'm still looking out for this amazing author.
What an imagination!!

The final installment in the trilogy has Paul, Marguerite, Theo and her parents jumping from universe to universe, recruiting other worlds to fight against Connolly and the Triad. Readers are taken to new locations such as London, Singapore, and even outer space! Previous locations were also revisited, and at one point in the novel, all the Marguerite(s) from the other universe all convene together thanks to a universe with clones. It was interesting to see updates and the aftermath of having Berkley-verse Marguerite inhabit them; and for the first time since she left their bodies, they were able to tell her exactly what they felt and thought on the matter.
While I was always a fan of Marguerite, sensible as she was, I found her much more careless, immature and vexing in the last book. The other characters weren’t much better. Paul was more self-deprecating than usual with his splintering and Theo had little page time, but even then, he was in his own little bubble. Million of Worlds With You didn’t have the same spark as it did before. I’m not sure if it’s been too long since I read the last book, but I felt everything was chaotic and rushed. The ending while happy, felt too easy and convenient.
This was my least favorite of the series and honestly, quite disappointing. I was expecting a big, crazy showdown but it felt more like a hide and seek, cat and mouse chase with unmemorable scenes. A Million of Worlds With You was well-written, had a decent plot and was overall okay-good; I just wished there was something a little more, like that magic high I had in the first book. With that said, I'd still recommend the series, especially for those who love destiny love-stories and time-travel.
The Triad is still out to destroy the multiverse and they have decided the best way to do this is take out all the other Marguerites in all the other parallel dimensions. The Triad is using the Marguerite known as “Wicked” to inhibit and kill the other Marguerites. That leaves our Marguerite with the task of running from dimension to dimension trying to stop Wicked. In each dimension Marguerite finds herself in a potentially life-threatening situation and has to escape out of it in order to prevent that dimension’s collapse.
In general Marguerite is visiting dimensions she’s already visited in previous books; I kind of missed the introduction of new and unique dimensions...this was my favorite part about this series. There is also a lot of uncertainty between Paul and Marguerite because of the splintering of Paul’s soul across multiple dimensions.
The above being said, I still really enjoyed how everything was so neatly wrapped up. I loved how people had to cooperate across dimensions to stop the Triad and how huge the whole thing gets. I also enjoyed the excitement and urgency whenever Marguerite jumped into another Marguerite and had to save her life.
Overall I enjoyed this series. It was incredibly creative and very intriguing to read. The whole series is well-written and engaging. I would recommend to those who enjoy books about science fiction and parallel dimensions.
There is a lot of science involved in this series, but it is presented in such a way that it explains what it needs to without being anything like a lecture. It also is the perfect tool to create villains and heroes. The science behind travel between the multiverses is something that has lots of implications and applications, some with less positive ramifications.
This has been such a fantastic series, so beautiful. And I am so sad that the ride is over! This is a series I highly recommend for anyone who loves a thought-provoking, exciting read!
