Marguerite Caine's physicist parents are known for their groundbreaking achievements. Their most astonishing invention, called the Firebird, allows users to jump into multiple universes - and promises to revolutionize science forever. But then Marguerite's father is murdered, and the killer - her parent's handsome, enigmatic assistant Paul - escapes into another dimension before the law can touch him. Marguerite refuses to let the man who destroyed her family go free. So she races after Paul through different universes, always leaping into another version of herself. But she also meets alternate versions of the people she knows - including Paul, whose life entangles with hers in increasingly familiar ways. Before long she begins to question Paul's guilt - as well as her own heart. And soon she discovers the truth behind her father's death is far more sinister than she expected.

I listened to this on audiobook, which worked quite well. I enjoyed the narration (even the cheesy Russian and British accents, which helped set the tone), and it moved quickly.
I instinctively rear away from love triangles, and I could feel this one coming very early on. I'm grateful that she chose between the two of them fairly quickly and didn't waver on her decision, even if she still held attraction for the un-chosen.
I really loved the Russia portion of the book. Compared to the time in the other dimensions, it may have been a bit long, but I really enjoyed the character and relationship development that happened in that time. I loved the Anastasia vibe; very romantic and beautiful.
The writing style had a lot of "telling" instead of showing--particularly in explaining Marguerite's thought process directly. Because it's first-person and YA, this is certainly forgivable and added to the character development, but at times probably could have been trimmed down.
The book ends on a very resolved, satisfying note, but I'm still interested to see what the sequels bring.

Generally, there was too much hand-holding for me in the story. Everyone was just tripping over themselves to make sure Meg is alright. She never takes responsibility for anything b/c everyone is too much in love with her. And the modern version of 'noble idiocy' with regards to Paul and his secrets... When is it ever a good idea to hide things away and miscommunicate due the fear of hurting another? It is never worth the headache.

I liked the book. Just with reservations.
